Behind each product are the version numbers, the most recent updates are listed first.

What are the licensing costs of Dundas Data Visualization, Dundas Dashboard and Dundas BI Data Flow?

In many cases, it can be difficult to determine the licensing costs of Dundas BI & Analytics 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 request a quote just before the end of the fiscal period of Dundas, you can probably get a decent reduction in the license cost. In addition, it makes sense running the software in the cloud. You then only pay for what you use.
