Genuitec is currently working with a household-named company to seamlessly migrate 1000 of their RAD (IBM Rational Application Developer) developers to MyEclipse Blue Edition. With the current price of RAD's "Authorized User" licenses, even including a steep 30 percent discount, MyEclipse Blue Edition will save this company a load of cash.

Observe:

Cost per developer for initial license
and 12 months support = $3206

Cost for 2 years maintenance
@ 15 percent = $1374
----------
Per developer for license and 3 years of support = $4580
Overall cost with RAD - 1000 licenses for 3 years = $4,580,000

Instead, with MyEclipse Blue Edition, this company will be spending $127 per developer, per year (with volume discount included). Support and updates are included for all three years.

----------
Total cost with MyEclipse Blue for 3 years = $381,000

This company will save themselves (and cost IBM) about $4.2 million over 3 years.

So, if your company has one of those incentive-based initiatives that gives you a percentage cut of company cost-savings, sign up for it. Then, propose MyEclipse Blue Edition. If your company is large enough, you might be able to pay off your house.

If you're looking to migrate away from RAD, can you afford to NOT give Blue Edition a look?
