Pricing and Cost Advice
Information Not Available
  • "I can't advise anybody about pricing and licensing, but it was competitive. A lot of things we did look at were all volume-based, so it was a case of you buy a license to generate this many reports a year, and that's not something that I'm particularly interested in because it doesn't give you any idea - if we have future growth, or if we have a lean year - for budgeting reasons it's more difficult. With Windward it's a straight out license fee, whether we generate one page or we generate a million, it makes no difference."
  • "​They are fair and flexible. They are willing to work with your current architecture to make sure you have the best deal.​"
  • "CapEx fits our requirements, OpEx is higher due to the 20% service and maintenance cost, where we normally pay 15%."
  • "It is absolutely worth the value. They have flexibility, depending on what you're looking for from a buying standpoint. The current pricing models are quite flexible, with the ability to use it on an as-needed basis, or to get a perpetual license that covers a customer that might have extensive needs. I think it's pretty good."
  • "For what you're getting, it's an extremely good value."
  • "The only problem with the pricing of Windward is the limitation on the number of reports generated. It is costly in that sense. If you want to increase, you have to pay more, based on the number of reports generated per day. It is not the same with Crystal Reports. With the latter, you buy a license at one point in time and that's it."
  • "From my experience in this field, the product is reasonably priced, at least with the RESTful engine implementation. It's definitely not a cheap option. People say, "That's a fair amount of money to pay for a document generation tool." At the same time, you do get good functionality and the support is good."
  • "Pricing is something I complain about. Production pricing is okay, but for a testing environment the pricing looks a bit high to me."

    Overview

    Data is the most abundant and precious resource in an enterprise. It comes in all forms and is complex to merge, relate and analyze. Data analytics extract meaning from that data for business gain or productivity, often sharing those insights through analytics dashboards or analytics reports.

    With organizations generating billions of terabytes of data a year, big data analytics techniques are the only way to understand and uncover value from today’s scale of data.

    The best big data analytics tools must be able to process both structured and unstructured data such as text, documents, emails and other data stored in enterprise information management systems. They go further than reporting on historic performance, enabling companies to prescribe better actions through predictive analytics. These data analysis tools are often referred to as advanced analytics solutions, such as OpenText™ Magellan Analytics Suite, and are quickly becoming the preferred choice for enterprise analytics.
