We all know it's really hard to get good pricing and cost information.

We had a yearly license. I believe that if the license were cheaper, it would have a greater impact.
I already compared some solutions related to business process management, and I saw that the cost of IBM BPM is more expensive compared with that of Camunda, for example. We also pay for support.
Licensing is managed by the client, but we know it is yearly. Camunda is relatively cheaper. There is not much difference in pricing of IBM and PEGA. For large licensing, there are discounts as well.
The price of the solution is fair for an enterprise solution that has both cloud and on-premise deployments and when comparing to competitors. Recently IBM has introduced Cloud Pak which allows for more flexible licensing options for automation and other features.
When considering the features of the solution the price is expensive compared to competitors.
It is a very expensive product.
Its price is on the higher side, and it can be improved. Its licensing is on a yearly basis. There are no additional costs.
IBM BPM is not for every company. This is a solution is for a company that has at least 500 people and more employees. I don't expect a company with only 100 people to invest a half-million dollars into the licensing and the same in the services. A company like that should look into other open-source options.
The price is quite inflated, and I think that our service contract is per year with monthly fees. I don't have all of the details, as our finance department handles this.
The solution is on the expensive side.
I'm pretty sure licensing is on the pricier side, but it depends on the use case and the benefits that you realize from your investment. There are different versions of the product; a standard edition and an advanced edition. Each is based on the number of PC users, CPU's that you license out, and the cost varies based on your instrumentation and the number of processes.
The price is not great. The cloud and license of the subscription model for IBM BPM can be complex. There are a lot of alternatives to choose from, like a VAR, partner, or sales team from IBM. There might also be push back from the hardware team to be on-premise.
