Equalum was reasonably priced. It is not like those million dollar tools, such as Informatica. If you want to buy it, watch Equalum's YouTube videos first.

Equalum is rather expensive compared to its competitors but the comparison may not be fair because Equalum has features that save time that competitors do not. So you have to make up that cost in time savings, and we haven done that. Equalum has shortened our development cycle by a factor of 5. There are additional costs for their professional services.

They have a very simple approach to licensing. They don't get tied up with different types of connectivity to different databases. If you need more connectors or if you need more CPU, you just add on. It's component-based pricing. It's a really easy model for us and, so far, it's worked well. The actual pricing is relative. You talk to some people and they say, "Oh, it's too expensive." And then you talk to other people and they say, "Whoa, that's cheap." It's a case-by-case issue. For the most part, when we go up against local CDC products, we're always priced higher, but when we go up against big, global ETL vendors, we're priced lower. It comes down to what the customer needs. Is what we have overkill for them? Do they really just need something smaller and less expensive? If pricing is a problem, then we're probably in the wrong game or talking to the wrong people. Overall, we feel that the pricing is reasonable. We just hope that they don't increase the price too much going forward.
