Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"Pricing is negotiable with Microsoft, depending upon which of their packages you choose.""Presently, I am using a free trial version.""The price model is different for every client.""For enterprises, there is an annual license required to use this solution. The price of the solution could be cheaper. However, this is mostly because of the exchange rate from the dollar to the Nigerian currency.""Its price is okay because it is part of our licensing.""We have to pay for a license.""When you compare this solution with other tools in the market you might actually find a lot of variation in the pricing and that's why people opt for the other tools rather than Microsoft tools."
