We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Databricks uses a price-per-use model, where you can use as much compute as you need."
"The pricing depends on the usage itself."
"The price is okay. It's competitive."
"Licensing on site I would counsel against, as on-site hardware issues tend to really delay and slow down delivery."
"I do not exactly know the costs, but one of our clients pays between $100 USD and $200 USD monthly."
"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 solution uses a pay-per-use model with an annual subscription fee or package. Typically this solution is used on a cloud platform, such as Azure or AWS, but more people are choosing Azure because the price is more reasonable."
"The solution requires a subscription."
