We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pricing and Cost Advice
"We find Databricks to be very expensive, although this improved when we found out how to shut it down at night.""The pricing depends on the usage itself.""There are different versions.""Licensing on site I would counsel against, as on-site hardware issues tend to really delay and slow down delivery.""I am based in South Africa, where it is expensive adapting to the cloud, and then there is the price for the tool itself.""The price is okay. It's competitive.""I do not exactly know the costs, but one of our clients pays between $100 USD and $200 USD monthly.""The solution requires a subscription."
