The solution is no more expensive than other products. At the end of the day all solutions are always expensive. It all depends on how one wishes to spend his money. There are a host of solutions, some being open source, others being GitHub and there are expenses involved in the manpower requirements relating to their internal maintenance.

The pricing could be more competitive. It's a little high.

The price is a little bit high, especially because we have to pay an import tax.

The licenses are costly and are done per module. So, if you need the database or a transaction analysis, you have to pay for that module. You pay once per module and you have it forever. The same for the web transaction analysis and unified communication. You pay for the module once and that's it. But the cost depends on implementation because there are different platforms. Is it a retro-platform or it is hardware? It is an expensive solution, it's not for everybody. It is not for small customers, but more for medium and large ones.

Today we need to stop firefighting and go more to an automated and predictive environment. In a lot of organizations I see IT running a round like crazy to resolve and detect simple problems while the environments are getting more complex with cloud, hybrid, multi cloud etc.. also you can test performance before your app is going from test to acceptance and production, this way you resolve performance problems in a DEVOps with AIOPS and avoid them before they running in production. What is AIOps: IT Operations with the assistance of AI
