PravasRaySystems Integration Associate Director at a computer software company
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Pricing varies based on use, and it is not as costly as some competing enterprise solutions."
"Small and medium-sized companies cannot afford to pay for this solution."
"The cost is too high."
"It's very expensive."
"Our internal team takes care of group licensing and cost. We don't have individual licenses. We have group licensing at the company level. Usually, IBM doesn't charge anything separately on the licensing side. For storage and everything else, we are paying around $6,000 per month, which is not very high. It includes Linux data storage, execution, and licensing. They're charging $40 for one-hour execution. Based on that, we are spending around $2,000 on the production environment and $1,000 on the lower environment for testing and development-side executions. For the mainframe, we are using the Db2 mainframe database, and we are spending around $1,000 on the Db2 mainframe database as well. All this comes out to be around $6,000. We, however, would like to have some cost reduction."
"The price is expensive but there are no licensing fees."
"It is quite expensive."
