We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Our licensing costs are between $40,000 and $50,000 per year. Those are the costs that cover maintenance and licensing."
"The pricing is something that Oracle should work on to make the product more affordable, especially to businesses in third-world countries."
"It is very expensive. We pay in dollars, so the inflation and conversion cost is also there for us. They charge on a yearly basis for the license."
"Its price is already low. Oracle has a competitive and cheaper price as compared to others. Oracle Cloud is cheaper than other clouds. The pricing is very competitive for Oracle Cloud to be in the market. Their pricing makes customers interested in using this product even though Oracle doesn't have a local data center at this moment."
"They are pricing themselves out of the market."
"It is expensive."
"It's expensive. I would say that it is more expensive than other competing products."
"It's not cheap, but sometimes, you get what you pay for."
