We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"It's a per gigabyte cost for ingestion of data. For every gigabyte that you ingest, it's whatever you negotiated your price for. Compared to other contracts that we've had for cloud providers, it's significantly less."
"We have an OEM agreement with Devo. It is very similar to the standard licensing agreement because we are charged in the same way as any other customer, e.g., we use the backroom."
"We have seen ROI. We have seen cost savings in maintenance, upkeep, and support."
"I'm not involved in the financial aspect, but I think the licensing costs are similar to other solutions. If all the solutions have a similar cost, Devo provides more for the money."
"Devo is definitely cheaper than Splunk. There's no doubt about that. The value from Devo is good. It's definitely more valuable to me than QRadar or LogRhythm or any of the old, traditional SIEMs."
"[Devo was] in the ballpark with at least a couple of the other front-runners that we were looking at. Devo is a good value and, given the quality of the product, I would expect to pay more."
"Splunk is really expensive."
"I think that most of the monitoring solutions are expensive."
"I think that most of the log analytics solutions are expensive and I'm not sure if it's worth it."
"Our customers often complain that the price of Splunk is too high."
"Licensing is a yearly, one-time cost."
"The price is comparable."
"The pricing model is expensive and a nightmare based on the amount of data."
"The solution is a little expensive."
