I think the price is right for what you get. You can add or reduce the number and type of licenses every renewal period.

Cost for me is very much a comparative number - to ROI and compared to market. IBM BWL is great compared to market and ROI index. Most of the tools do not provide off the shelf pricing, but IBM has kept the pricing pretty open and flexible. The licenses are named user licenses and come as an annual subscription which helps the organization to keep the licenses to the optimum usage. The only challenge is admin activities every year for renewals.

IF there is any concern on the cost better to look to open source options

They have a free subscription model that gives a lot of power to the users.

It's fairly cheap and scalable for simple process discovery applications. It is easy to use. There are more comprehensive solutions at a similar price. Beware that there is a minimum contract period and some fixed annual costs. With a larger number of users, it would like make sense to switch to a proper BPMS such as Appian (although I've not used Appian).

The licensing costs are based on the number of users. There are editor licenses and UA licenses.

Our licensing costs are very minimal, because we get a lot of the solutions for free (as a partner).

Based on the licenses purchased, from a footprint perspective, you can have as many people as you want. You have multiple different categories of licenses to keep the cost low.
