Re: Complex licensing

Yes it does.

I had these problems with Infovista, for example.

They wanted I think 10-100e per seat.

As the telco wanted to offer it to 100.000 customers, and full data, it was 10.000.000e. And they would want consulting hours paid on top of that if we had problems with our in-house development.

So we spent the money to do a better system for 5.000.000.

With SAP, the same problem happens.. they want to count all external users.

If you offer it to all your customers and you have 1.000.000, well, multiply.

So the only logical thing to do is not to use their systems.
