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

Can you easily determine the licensing costs of Talend Data Fabric, Talend Open Studio and Talend Data Catalog?

In many cases, it can be difficult to determine the licensing costs of Talend ETL & Data Integration because it depends on the country, the number of users (and/or the number of cores if you want to run it on a server), 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 Talend, you can probably get a decent reduction in the license cost. In addition, nowadays it is recommended running the software in the cloud, you only pay for the actual use. The purchase cost of Talend Data Fabric, Talend Open Studio and Talend Data Catalog may not be the most important costs, but maintenance and support of course do limit your future investment scope.
