How it works

Pay only for what you need

Explore how you can automate your business with IBM Cloud Pak® for Business Automation. It's a modular and easy-to-consume pricing approach, so you only pay for what you need.

Reuse existing investments

IBM Cloud Pak for Business Automation capabilities can run on any infrastructure, so there’s no need to pay for extra investments you don’t need. Use your existing investments or try one of our trade-up programs to reuse existing capital expenditures for a potentially lower total cost of ownership. You also get simplified billing, reporting and management.

The portability to deploy anywhere, anytime

Capabilities from IBM Cloud Pak for Business Automation run on premises, on private and public clouds and in integrated systems. They work wherever Red Hat® OpenShift® runs. You can also deploy the business automation capabilities as software as a service (SaaS), managed by IBM on the IBM Cloud®.

Each IBM Cloud Pak includes containerized IBM middleware and common software services for development and management on top of a common integration layer.

Modernize at your own pace

IBM Cloud Pak for Business Automation contains key automation capabilities — process analysis, task automation, document processing, workflow orchestration, decision management, content services — integrated with a common UI and low-code application-building tools. Each capability comes with full software stack support and ongoing security, compliance and version compatibility.

Simple pay-for-usage billing

With IBM Cloud Pak for Business Automation, you can choose perpetual or monthly pricing, starting at USD 800 per month.

You pay only for the capabilities you need, with the flexibility to reallocate licenses to other capabilities in the future. You can buy new, exchange or trade up from eligible stand-alone entitlements, too.
