Our licensing costs are between $40,000 and $50,000 per year. Those are the costs that cover maintenance and licensing. We have an enterprise edition. We pay extra for features that are only available with this particular tier. View full review »

I am not exactly sure of the precise cost, but I do know that the cost of the product is very expensive compared to some other solutions. Even though we are in a third world country, we do not enjoy any discount for our situation and economy. View full review »

When people talk about Oracle, especially Database, most of them mention that Oracle is an expensive product. However, if it's suitable or not or if it really is "expensive" depends on their requirements. Today, Oracle is one of the best choices, regardless of pricing. Even though on paper their pricing looks expensive, everything can be negotiated. Companies may be able to come to an understanding with Oracle at a price point they can accept. View full review »

We're just a customer and we have the licensed product. We are continuously updating the license on an annual basis. It's a standard license, with a worldwide standard licensing cost for Oracle that we are paying. The fees are at about 22%. View full review »

The licensing costs are very high. We feel the solution is price gouging its customers. The solution has a standard license, which is different from an enterprise license. If you need the encryption feature, you need to go up to enterprise licensing which has a whole lot of other features that you may not even be using. Encryption is a top requirement in the industry, however, you're forced to use the enterprise edition if you need to use anything like this. That said, it is always better to go to a standard edition, which has more limited capabilities but can still fit into your product perspective. View full review »

The cost of Oracle Database is so high if you compare it to other vendors. Therefore you have to study your solution and know exactly which features you want; this will minimize the cost and licensing price. For that, Oracle provides different types of DB such as EE, SE, SE1, etc. depending on what the clients want. View full review »

I don't deal with the accounting, so I can't speak to the pricing of the solution. View full review »
