Pricing and Cost Advice
"We are on the Flex licenses.""We have unlimited licenses for all of our functionalities. Since we went global, we went with that model.""The cost of other pieces and integrating them in needs improvement.""We have portfolio managers, resource managers, project managers, and time reporting licenses. These are the licenses that we have.""I don't think we have necessarily purchased everything that I would have liked to have seen.""We have several hundred licenses. It costs us several hundred thousand dollars a year.""We overbought our licenses. We looked at our needs three to four years down the road and tried based our contract on that. However, we were over aggressive. We use about a third of the licenses that we have. We're looking to adjust the makeup so we can start utilizing the amount of money that we are spending. Right now, we're overspending, and my organization is not seeing the value in Planview because we are paying so much for licenses that we're not using.""Our licensing costs are probably $150,000 to $180,000 a year with 270 licenses total."

"In terms of cost, Sparx EA is probably one of the cheapest tools I have ever used.""The licensing is not as expensive as some of the other data modeling tools such as Erwin.""Its price is very good for the value that you get with it.""They have the price on their site for the enterprise version, and we do receive a small discount.""The licence has a costly upfront fee which gets you access. You have to pay an annual maintenance fee, which is less.""It is cheaper than other solutions. Its cost is around $686 per year. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.""We have an annual license, and it's very affordable.""I think our license costs roughly $1,000 a year, but I could be wrong."
