Why power virtual agent is costlier and expensive than Azure Bot framework?

Our organization is new to power virtual agents and currently we use bot based on .net framework hosted on azure. We are looking to switch to power virtual agent, but we wonder what more it has than azure bot framework.

 

What it offers more than the .net bot framework that worth its 1000$ price? In terms of functionality or in terms of usability.

Hi Vignesh,

 

I would prefer if the PVA pricing was more competitive however I do appreciate why it is priced this high.

 

PVA empowers anybody to create a chatbot without needing any technical skills.  A business user who is a subject matter expert can easily create a bot. The same cannot be said for the Azure bot framework

You need to think about implementation time = costs as well as licensing. The no code interface makes that implementation time and cost (including ongoing iteration and improvement) substantially less than building a bot with code.

Your argument makes very little sense. Other AI platforms like Watson are cheaper yet they over the same ease. The product is too expensive.
