Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Actually in Iran we don't have copyright or intellectual property, so we can use JIRA for free.But about the plugins, I found one plug-in — its name is Actionable Metric I think — and it is $3000. That is very expensive for users in Iran.Costs are about $50 per user per year. JIRA is sold in user tiers of 25, 50, 100, 250, 500, 2000, 10,000, and unlimited users. It is bad when you have 51 users then the price is based on that 100 user tier. Users at 100 will be the most cost effective.JIRA Service Desk has different pricing as it is based on agents. On average, the price is about $300 per agent.Do not forget to calculate add-on costs. These cost a percentage of the JIRA purchasing costs and are based on the number of JIRA users.Buying a software solution is only a half part of the solution (or even less). You need to optimize usage of the software by hiring professionals who will help you to make the most of the software, especially in the beginning.I would suggest to always buy licenses through an Atlassian partner, so you can also rely on their expertise.
