I think that it is pretty expensive. It is very innovative in terms of multiple licensing options out there. So, depending upon the need of the organization, they can offer different kinds of licensing.

Pricing cannot be shared because it varies depending on the client's engagement with MuleSoft and subscription.

When it comes to determining price, the pre-sales team interacts with the customer's primary integration team and the price is negotiated based on the specific usage of the system.

I don't have any visibility on the licensing and therefore cannot speak to the exact cost of the product. We are working with a platinum tier and have an unlimited core. It's my understanding is that there are no additional costs beyond the licensing fee itself.

The pricing could be better. We pay a licensing fee on a monthly basis.

We originally signed a three-year licensing agreement. There's room for improvement on the licensing. They could do better.

The solution makes users pay integration fees. You need to pay extra to get proper analytics. It's a separate fee.

The pricing is very expensive, although you get a lot of power from the product. We're just scratching the surface of it.

The licensing fees are approximately $80,000 USD per year and there are costs for additional functionality, as well as premiums for connectors to systems such as Oracle and SAP. You're not obligated but it is better to buy premium and official connectors, although they cost approximately $25,000 per year.

I'm unsure about licensing costs because I'm not the person who handles this. But, ballpark, it's probably somewhere around $300,000-$400,000 or something like that.

Hi @Niki Shetty, ​ Usually, all these API Mgmt platforms are built with a proprietary integration in mind. I doubt such cross-product integration is possible. However, can you elaborate more on the below: 1. What customizations you were into that are causing pain?  3Scale is not best vis-a-vis that activity. The best tool here could be WSO2 which allows a lot of customizations.  2. What management activity you are looking into, to offload to another tool like Mulesoft AAPIM?  3. What type of deployments are you into? Stand-alone? Kubernetes? etc?

Hi @Niki Shetty,  We know this very well. Every so-called API runtime, i.e. an API gateway, is fixed to its own technology. In other words, API integration is the new vendor lock-in. What we have learned is that there is an urgent need for a higher-level API control plane. So you separate the API management from the so-called runtime. You can also call this API Master Management. This dramatically reduces complexity, creates friendly API developers and increases security. If you need something - we're there for you.
