Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
"It is expensive, but we reached a good agreement with the company. It is still a little bit expensive, but we got a better deal than the previous one.""The pricing and licensing costs for webMethods are very high, which is the only reason that we might switch to another product.""The vendor is flexible with respect to pricing.""This is an expensive product and we may replace it with something more reasonably priced.""It's a good deal for the money that we pay.""Currently, the licensing solution for this product is pretty straightforward. The way that Software AG has moved in their licensing agreements is very understandable. It is very easy for you to see where things land. Like most vendors today, they are transaction based. Therefore, just having a good understanding of how many transactions that you are doing a year would be very wise. Luckily, there are opportunities to work with the vendor to get a good understanding of how many transactions you have and what is the right limit for you to fall under.""Pricing is the number-one downfall. It's too expensive. They could make more money by dropping the price in half and getting more customers. It's the best product there is, but it's too expensive.""I do think webMethods is coming under increasing pressure when it comes to their price-to-feature value proposition. It's probably the single biggest strategic risk they have. They're very expensive in their industry. They've been raising the price recently, especially when compared with their competitors."
