The quality is good, but the price is on the higher side. The previous version and their pricing models were much more cost-effective. But maybe from their point of view, they have made changes. They have brought in containers and all the latest DevOps stuff, which is not very pocket friendly for their consumers. For the same price, if I go for the previous version, I would have got a lot more capacity with similar features, but now they have changed their whole design.
The licensing cost is a challenge for quite a few customers. Tibco Products may have a high initial setup cost in terms of pricing and licensing. However, it depends on what agreements are made with the Tibco vendor, what kind of setup is being done, and how efficiently the architecture is laid out.
When it comes to cost, TIBCO is much more competitive than a product like Pega. Our licensing cost is in the area of half a million, annually. There are no costs in addition to the standard licensing fees.
