What are the licensing costs of DataRobot Artificial Intelligence, DataRobot Core and DataRobot AutoML?

It is difficult to determine exactly what a license of DataRobot Artificial Intelligence, DataRobot Core and DataRobot AutoML costs because it depends on the country, the number of users (or the number of CPUs in the case of server software), the connectors to data sources, and at what point in the year you request a quote. If you do this a few weeks before the end of DataRobot’s fiscal quarter, you may be in for a decent discount. In addition, nowadays it is recommended running the software in the cloud. You then only pay for what you actually use in resources. The purchase cost of DataRobot Artificial Intelligence, DataRobot Core and DataRobot AutoML may not be the most important costs, but maintenance and support do show up in your budget every year.
