Whether they’re on the “nice” list or on the “naughty” side of the ledger, enterprise IT professionals work hard all year long, and they are always looking for ways to stretch resources and leverage technology so that they and the professionals they serve can focus on more strategic tasks. That’s why a gift like pricing transparency on data integration and management services can be so valuable to IT.
Just as holiday shopping expenditures can get out of hand without careful attention, many IT teams are checking their service usage to make sure they don’t experience unexpected cost overruns. They’ve been surprised before by large bills that result from paying by the node, server, CPU, user, adapter, message, connection or transaction. In addition to anticipating getting full on Holiday treats, many IT leaders are now fed up with the needless complexity of IT services bills.
For these reasons, pricing transparency from Liaison might be the best gift for IT leaders this holiday season. Borrowing a page from flat-rate consumer data plans, Liaison now offers access to our award-winning Liaison ALLOY™ Platform in a simple three-tier subscription model. And we’re the first company in the integration and data management sector to provide this level of transparency.
With our transparent pricing approach, Liaison makes the world’s first data Platform as a Service (dPaaS) available for a full range of integration and data management needs. Customers who require a standard B2B integration solution can choose that level of service, while enterprises with more robust needs can access highly customized versions — all for a clear, upfront price without hidden fees.
While other data integration and management providers meter access by transaction volume and impose limits on compute/store usage, Liaison’s pricing model eliminates those worries. The three-tiered subscription levels include powerful big data and microservices technologies as well as independently audited compliance features. And Liaison handles the backroom mechanics of data integration and management so customers can focus on their next great innovation or insight.
The Core subscription level is perfect for standard integrations, while the Premium level provides support for more complex integrations as well as data management functions. The Elite level is designed for customers with custom integration needs and robust data management requirements.
Core customers can subscribe on a monthly pay-as-you-go basis with no service contract. Premium and Elite subscribers benefit from service agreements that include advanced solution monitoring, enhanced service levels and access to a variety of microservices bundles. All levels provide cost predictability so that IT leaders can stop worrying about budget-busting overage charges.
So, if you’ve been concerned about cost overruns or being surprised by an unexpectedly large IT integration and data management services bill due to metered service plans, look for a gift marked “pricing transparency” this holiday season from Liaison. It’s the gift that keeps on giving year-round, and you can learn more about it at liaison.opentext.com/liaison-alloy-platform/pricing/
