We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

The problem is that the cost of this tool is pretty high. Even if an organization likes the tool, at times it becomes difficult for us to sell the license. CA provides licenses for different utilities like masking but even if you break it up, the pricing is still high.
Part of the licensing is dependent on whether you want to use the portal. It's based on floating users. The other part is dependent on what type of system you are using. We are using mainframe, so we paid good money for a mainframe license. It's okay because, for us, the main work of this tool is on those systems. The mainframe is a critical system, so the cost is okay.
