More MOVEit Pros →

Cons
"I would like to see auto-deployment without service disruptions.""The API capabilities could be expanded to make integration more versatile.""Too many features; UI is not good.""IBM is advising not to use the IT translate anymore but this is going to be an extra cost to the customer to use the alternative.""Not a ten because it's a bit complex, not so simple.

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "It's reasonably priced at $800,000."
  • "There are two types of customer licenses, an annual preview license, and an ELA-based license. I have found the solution is priced well. However, they need to review the pricing model because if you look at any other competitors, such as GlobalSCAPE, they do pricing based on the components and what you select. With this solution you have a monolithic application which you need to buy, there is no component level price discount."
