What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The licensing model for SharePoint 2013 and 2016 is more efficient than the 2010 version because they removed the internet edition, which was the most expensive.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We went directly with SharePoint because it was the content management leader at the time.
