This solution is a bit more expensive than competitors.

It was very high at that time. We are a Broadcom CA partner, and we got it only for testing purposes. We didn't pay anything for it.

It is a pricey product, although priced to the market.

We bought the product long ago. At that time it was a reasonably low price and it was a perpetual user's license. There was no need for additional licenses. It was a great deal if you look at it in that perspective. I think that there are some costs for maintenance that we are being charged, but that is not really something to worry about and it seems fair.

When it comes to pricing, I think we cracked a good deal with Broadcom on Layer7. It may be because of the COVID-19 situation. Whatever the reason, from a pricing perspective we have found the solution to be a good deal for us.

Keep in mind the non-product licensing, e.g., if you opt not to use the embedded SQL. If you do a TCO of more than five years, then you will see a big jump in costs for some vendors. Make sure you cater for all environments. We went in with three environments but some businesses that came onboard later on required up to five. This probably depends on the complexity of your business.

Our CA API Management license is for five years with no additional cost other than the standard licensing fees.

CA API Management has a licensing path. If you want more features, it requires more licenses and more installation time.

It has a reasonable pricing model by instance.

For what we are after, the pricing is okay. It is competitive.

We weren't comfortable with the pricing of licensing. It was slightly more expensive than its competitors.

I think it's competitive. It's not that expensive when you compare CA with the Oracle product. I also haven't seen the latest pricing for the virtual gateways, but what I have seen seems to be reasonably priced.

I do not have any experience with the pricing or licensing of the product.

Pricing is competitive. CA is ready to offer attractive discounts.

Subscription licensing and pricing are competitive with other solutions.

We are a partner with our own prices.

I feel the product's pricing is a good value. In terms of licensing, currently, they are available for as perpetual from CA. What is really important is that they offer the solution as a service, on a subscription or monthly basis, which will make it more attractive. That is where the market is headed. There are competitors within the industry that are doing that currently. I would encourage CA to do that.

It is in the lowest price range for such products but the pricing model needs to be changed.

It's my manager who takes care of the pricing. But I keep on hearing that it's a little pricey, it's on the higher side. That is what he says. We have around 20 licenses so for that, the pretty is pretty high. That's what he says.

We need to know the ROI three years down the line. In terms of minimizing cost and licensing issues, I would suggest that you not buy piecemeal.

I feel that it is costly for small/medium-sized companies.
