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.
I don't personally know what the numbers are. I just know that one of the reasons we've limited it to three seats is a function of cost.
It is not cheap. It is expensive to onboard additional licenses.
I don't have much information about pricing. I do know that our organization bought more licenses than we need, however, so we can easily add more people to the solution when we need to.
IBM is a bit too expensive in terms of pricing. Customers are paying a lot for the license, and the price is quite high for this kind of environment. It is quite high as compared to what we can get today with other solutions.
This is an expensive solution. Licensing fees are billed annually and there is no support included with what I pay.
All my clients are running under a special agreement using a client-server version of the DOORS product where they get a discount on the product and then only pay maintenance. They pay the maintenance on a yearly basis. They are mostly huge companies and this is partly how they were able to get this special agreement. It works well for them because we have informed the clients how they could reduce their maintenance costs.
It is very expensive. But, it depends on the project. The project must warrant the expense paid.
If you were talking to someone whose organization is considering IBM Rational DOORS, what would you say?
How would you rate it and why? Any other tips or advice?
