IBM Integration Bus itself is prices fair but App-Connect is a bit expensive which we use in conjunction with it.

I use the traditional licensing model, which I believe to not be on a monthly basis, as the solution is not cloud-based. I don't mind the pricing.

The pricing could be improved to make it more competitive.

The solution requires a license and is very expensive here in India. Large organizations will be able to afford it but smaller companies will have a difficult time paying for the solution at the current price.

Evaluate and define a clear architecture, and set up a governance framework that includes a competence center that will take care of the usage, the licenses which will be needed, and do guarantee the reuse of interfaces and components.

The pricing is pretty good. We've noticed that it's quite reasonable, whereas, for example, solutions like MuleSoft are rising. Salesforce recently acquired MuleSoft and has grown its market share, however, the pricing is turning people off. IBM is much more reasonable.

The pricing is pretty good. What they charge isn't unreasonable.

We're satisfied with the price, it's okay. The terms and everything are decided by the company. It's not a big deal for us.

I don't have any information about licensing or costs. It's not something that I am in charge of.

Our licensing is based on a five-year contract, and as far as I know, there are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fee.

I have no comment on pricing.

* The IIB setup is still very command-based. The implementation is not so easy. * It still needs a lot of environment and OS-related tweaking. * Pricing is on par with its competition.
