Recent innovations of GoodData Platform-tools and the version history

Recently, we see a positive evolution in terms of BI & Analytics functionality and support for operating systems, cloud platforms and connectivity. The latest innovations are in the areas of performance optimization > caching, performance optimization > data pipelines and BI infrastructure > operating systems > Unix.

We reviewed GoodData’s most current versions of its complete BI & Analytics proposition. As far as we can tell, GoodData does not use an identifiable version numbering system.

What are the licensing costs of GoodData Platform?

It is difficult to determine exactly what a license of GoodData Platform costs because it depends on the country, the number of users (also consider the amount of CPUs for server versions), 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 GoodData’s fiscal quarter, you may be in for a decent discount. As part of a cloud-first strategy, it makes sense running the software in the cloud, you only pay for the actual use. The purchase cost of GoodData Platform may not be the most important costs, but maintenance and support of course do limit your future investment scope.
