At Eight Wire, we’ve always taken the stance that data migration can, and should, be easy. For us, that includes pricing.

From what I’ve seen, this belief isn’t widely held by other data migration/integration companies. Usually, pricing is hidden, subject to any number of unnecessary conditions and additional charges.

I recently decided to see if I could get a direct competitive quote. First stop Mulesoft’s pricing page. Here’s a list of questions used to reason out their pricing for each individual case:

  • “What business process(es) will Mule ESB be supporting?
  • Which endpoints will Mule ESB be connecting?
  • Is this a mission-critical application?
  • What throughput do you estimate for the integration? Will it change over time?
  • How do Mule ESBs prices compare to the competition?”

So how you’re charged depends on your answers?

This is not an uncommon approach to pricing but it does raise some interesting questions…

  • Do you know right now all the business processes you’ll be connecting?
  • If the applications you’re connecting are mission critical, do you pay more?
  • If the competition’s price is low, do you get a better price?

Is there a better way? At Eight Wire we think our pricing is as simple and as fair as it gets. Our standard pricing is based upon the number of rows of data moved per month. And what’s more we only charge you for what we move successfully, so you pay for delivery, not software. To see more, check out our pricing calculator HERE.

We’ve always been open about our pricing because we see no reason not to be. Eight Wire automates the effort to move data, and because it adapts to any change and works in any environment, we only charge you for what you successfully move. It’s “outcome based pricing,” you only pay for success. No more gambling on software and consultants delivering value before the budget runs out.
