I'm putting together a ballpark type of quote for some people in my company. The quote is based on the "recommendations" by the software company that is writting the software. The reason for the ballpark quote is so that those that need it can determine if the ROI will work. Now I have gathered several quotes on the specified hardware and software that is needed. What I am looking for is some idea of how different parts of the software license play out. For example MSSQL pricing is based on processor, however there is also a client license. Now this is a server that will be basically only accessed via a web interface and some messaging back and forth. So do I need alot of user/client licenses? As you can tell I'm not very good with the software part of pricing. And if you pay the per processor fee do you have to pay the user/client license fee?
