Pricing and Cost Advice
APIs can be developed to provide security. We can show them in one single pane of glass, such as the CA API Management API Developer Portal. It is there that we can provide the monetization for their APIs and what is happening on third-party applications, like Paytm or BookMyShow.
CA API Management has a licensing path. If you want more features, it requires more licenses and more installation time.
It has a reasonable pricing model by instance.
For what we are after, the pricing is okay. It is competitive.
We weren't comfortable with the pricing of licensing. It was slightly more expensive than its competitors.
I do not have experience with the pricing or licensing of the product.
I think it's competitive. It's not that expensive when you compare CA with the Oracle product.
I feel that it is costly for medium-sized companies.
There is a standard agreement for the messaging every month. But if we make a change request — a change to a mapping or something like that — then there is a fixed price per hour.
We pay per message we use. We spend about £19,000 a year with them.
On an annual basis, our support costs, which are based on the licensing, are about £120,000.
The cost-based model is slightly different now in SEEBURGER Business Integration Suite (BIS). They changed the licensing, based on adapters and other things. In the old style of licensing, the whole suite was one license...
Our licensing model is based on transactions. We have a base service contract which is priced against a volume of transactions and another volume of individual transactions, which are covered by one service agreement. Then, we have development services on top of that. Our annual spend is around £80,000. It's about mid-priced, as there are some cheaper alternatives out there and some more expensive ones. It's neither cheap nor expensive. It's somewhere in the middle.
We have additional ad hoc development costs, but those vary depending on if we're bringing on another third-party into our systems via the EDI integration. So, that's highly variable.
All the new adapters are individually priced, which is good. You don't buy the whole system and then if you don't use it, you don't use it. You only buy the stuff you want...
Sometimes it seems a little pricey, especially when some of the stuff is available through freeware, like SFTP communications... It costs a lot more money to buy this stuff from SEEBURGER but I think it's worth it in the long run.
