FTK5 upgrade confidence poll

Post Posted: Mar 30, 13 05:20

AccessData has been advertising that FTK version 5 is out in a few months. If you're a current customer, will you be upgrading to 5 as soon as it comes out, or waiting to see feedback from others?

Please do not vote if you do not own FTK.

How "immediately"? It will have to go through testing. There are questions about database migration that will have to be decided (as Oracle, while so far still supported, is not getting much if any love from AD). How much more will AD charge for maintenance?

There are a lot of questions.

Yearly support and maintenance will be going up. To be fair, it's been years since the rate went up, but it's going to be more than just the CPI.

I've heard it will be at least a grand more but haven't seen anything definitive. Then again that may be the price for the full version vs. Maintenance

I'm pretty sure that's the difference in the purchase sticker price, not the mtx. Consider though that AD tends to peg MTX at about 25% of sticker, and that should give a rough price idea.
