If you want additional features, you will need to pay more.
All the products I've used could be priced lower. Perhaps with the exception of something like SnapLogic, they are very expensive. TIBCO is expensive.

Oracle is expensive and probably more fragile. Message Broker is quite expensive but quite reliable.
The solution is quite expensive.
