Following the Draftsight decision Dassault has also decided, or has not be able to come to an agreement with Microsoft, to include SQL with PDM Professional licensing. SQL 2014 will be the last version provided and if companies need anything more then the free SQL Express it is going to cost significantly more. There are a few years before we will be forced to upgrade but according to SW's own compatibility chart PDM2022 and SQL 2014 will no longer be compatible. I estimate it will cost my business $20,000 to get the same licenses that are already included and who knows what their yearly maintenance fees are. I have not investigated with the Microsoft CAL licensing complexity yet but it could be a bit less or significantly more. PDM Pro is also included in Dassault's increase in subscription fees. Charged more and receive less that is a nice double whammy! I have talked to two VAR's about this issue and also raised it directly with a SolidWorks sales rep. They were all going to highlight the issue to SolidWorks corporate. Anyone signing 3 year subscription agreements now needs to be aware of this change as it will likely affect you. We need to let SolidWorks know downloading these extra costs onto their customers is not a good way to make people happy. Unhappy customers start to evaluate other options.
