It is very expensive. With five being the most expensive, I would rate it a five out of five. I am not sure why it is so expensive, but one license will cost approximately $15,000 in US dollars.

I would tell them to be very cautious about how they initially import their requirements into the product because that initial import seems to carry more weight and effect than I would have anticipated.

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.

Hi Community,  I am a Pre-Sales Solutions Architect at a medium-sized tech services company. Both DOORS and our Enterprise Management solution are great individually, however, we are not sure how well they integrate. Would you suggest that we integrate the two? What are the pros and cons of integrating these products?  Thank you for your help.
