More Teradata Pricing and Cost Advice »

"From a cost perspective, the software is less than most of its competitors.""It's difficult today to compete with open-source solutions. In these areas, there is a lot of competition and the price of this solution is a bit pricy.""The price could be cheaper and it is best to negotiate the price.""The price is reasonable. We use a pay per license model. Firstly, you need to buy a license. After that, you mainly pay the annual support fee of around 20% or 25%. I think their prices are quite reasonable."
