We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.
Please share what you can so you can help your peers.
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.
For what we are after, the pricing is okay. It is competitive.
It has a reasonable pricing model by instance.
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.
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.
We are a partner with our own prices.
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.
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.
It is in the lowest price range for such products but the pricing model needs to be changed.
I feel that it is costly for small/medium-sized companies.
