It is very difficult to say how much the product costs because there are variables depending on the configuration. Normally it's priced according to use, so the price can vary quite a lot. The more you use, the more you pay. In comparison to other products, I would say it's not so expensive as Informatica, but it is intended to be an enterprise solution so it's not very cheap to deploy as products that are not enterprise solutions. The products we offer are really very different in pricing compared to open-source products. With open-source you have only the maintenance cost. For the software products we use, you have to invest in the software and then the maintenance costs are in addition to that. There are no other costs in addition to the standard licensing fee and the maintenance. With IBM, you typically pay for the licenses and the first 12 months of maintenance is included in that cost. Afterward, you pay for the maintenance year-to-year.
Small and medium-sized companies cannot afford to pay for this solution.
