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

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The licensing fees are on a yearly basis, which for us it is about R400,000 (approximately $27,000 USD).""The pricing is a little expensive for our current employer, so they want to move to a cheaper solution.""The licensing fees are between $8,000 and $10,000 per year.""IBM provides an open license policy, which is more like a gentlemen's agreement.""One can go with either a PVU licensing model or a capacity based licensing model. Either solution does not block the usage, if over used.""It is fairly reasonable as compared to other solutions in the market.""We have capacity licensing. We use the front end. The capacity licensing is pretty okay on the licensing price. I used to use the old PVU-based licensing in the early environment, but now we use capacity-based licensing.""It is really expensive. Its price is not good for Latin America. Its price is good for the United States or Europe."
