The pricing is too high. there are other options on the market that are priced at less of a cost. IBM needs to begin to compete with them a bit more.

The license cost is bundled with IBM Power Systems as it is limited to RISC-based IBM systems only.

I don't know what the licensing costs are. It's not part of my department.

The price varies from case to case and you have to negotiate it for every project. Pricing and licensing policies are not completely transparent.
