Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
Licensing varies widely, depending on usage. It can be cheap or quite expensive, depending on volume and features.It is worth the cost. You need to know the number of users that are going to use it, which is usually pretty easy to calculate. It's on a per-user license.I would definitely say it's worth the value. I wouldn't say it's expensive, but most people who pick xMatters are not going to select xMatters based on price. There are other lower-priced competitors that are out there. But I would say for what we're getting, it's worth the money.xMatters is pricey, but you have to consider what a critical incident costs your organization.xMatters shortens the time to resolution, so the amount saved in potential lost revenue and productivity has justified the cost for our organization.​​You pay for the user, not the number of alerts. Therefore, xMatters provides a better ROI, if you can leverage it for notifications based on alerts from other monitoring tools. ​​I do not think it is worth the value.​If you are willing to pay for the licensing of it, it is able to scale out.​
