We pay for an enterprise license. We pay yearly when we renew our license.

We have an on-premise license. We have one license for an admin and we have a license for our users, enough for 27 user licenses. We pay on a yearly basis. We are selling support, but as I said, we are using only the Web Intelligence and the dashboards. We didn't buy the other models or feature. We don't have the predictive analytics or the SAP HANA. We don't have any of that. The servers and the preparation to go on the servers are costs beyond the licensing fees.

I cannot speak to the exact cost of the product, as it's not an aspect of the solution I handle.

Licensing is paid on a yearly basis. There is room for improvement in the pricing. It could be more reasonable.

I don't have the exact number, but SAP BusinessObjects Business Intelligence Platform is not too cheap.

I have always found SAP BI to be expensive. It is expensive even when you compare SAP BI Cloud with Microsoft Power BI. Power BI is probably around $9.99 per month, and the cheapest SAP BI is around $20, which is double. In terms of price, Power BI is definitely a lot better. If you have budget issues, you may want to go for Power BI.

We pay our licensing fees on a monthly basis. I can't speak to how much they are. I don't recall there being any extra costs above the licensing itself.

It is not cost-effective. It is expensive.

Its price is fair.

Cost to setup and run is high as it is complex but then again one also gets a highly functional product. SAP do have a small business pricing so, at least, the licensing is not too expensive.
