What are the licensing costs of SAP HANA, SAP BusinessObjects, and SAP Analytics Cloud?

It is difficult to determine exactly what a license of SAP HANA, SAP BusinessObjects, and SAP Analytics Cloud 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. And before the end of a fiscal quarter of SAP, you may be able to look forward to a decent discount. In addition, we recommend to run the software in the cloud, for the most part, you only pay for your consumption then. The purchase cost of SAP HANA, SAP BusinessObjects, and SAP Analytics Cloud may not be the single largest expense, but maintenance and support can certainly put quite a strain on your annual budget.
