Question

What software companies have you found are willing to negotiate price due to COVID19?

I have found that if you chat with Adobe support and tell them you're thinking of cancelling the Adobe Suite, they will throw 3 free months at your right now without batting an eye.

Anyone had luck getting anything from Datadog? They are pretty draconian with their sales and looking to see how we can control a bit of costs there. Our Datadog bill is about 30% of our AWS, which feels crazy high.

Looks like @jcfuller was able to get Datadog negotiated down via his comment in this other discussion, though said "renegotiating things like DataDog also took engineering resources to cut certain things and change the way API calls were being made, etc. so it's no small feat. But it is a substantial savings (And right now that might mean another month of runway.)"

In another discussion about re-negotiating software pricing in light of COVID-19, people shared they've gotten discounts from Gusto, Zapier, HubSpot, Gitlab, Datadog, and more.

Here's another list of software with COVID-19 discounts we'd rounded up, too.
