TMS Business becomes TMS BIZ, and now you have more options to choose the products you want to use. Learn more in this blog post.
In this year, 2022, TMS Business reached a milestone: 10 years has passed since the initial release. That's right, TMS Business was first announced in 2012.
TMS Business it's not a product per se, but a product bundle. And 10 years ago, it included 6 products: TMS Aurelius, TMS Data Modeler, TMS Scripter, TMS Workflow Studio, TMS Diagram Studio and TMS Query Studio.
After 10 years, another 5 products were included in the bundle: TMS Sparkle, TMS RemoteDB, TMS XData, TMS Echo and TMS Logging. And we are not talking about marginal, side products, but flagship products like TMS XData. And now we also created TMS Sphinx, a new product that will be included in the upcoming TMS BIZ Premium (more on that below).
The following video (from time 37'43") explains in more details about this process. You can jump to minute 37'43" or use this link to open it in Youtube at the right time.
But eventually, TMS Business has became too big, and too different from the initial proposal. That's why we decided it's time to change the licensing model.
First things first, we made a subtle change in product name: TMS Business (sometimes suffixed with "Subscription") becomes TMS BIZ. It's now the new name of the bundle, and we will then use "TMS Business" to refer to the "old, legacy" product.
Second, we are offering three TMS BIZ editions, giving you more options to choose from the products you want. Some customers don't need all the products included in the bundle, and now you will have that choice. Finally, a relative price increase was inevitable after 10 years adding features, fixing bugs, providing support and also including 6 full new products to the bundle, without a price change since then.
So now TMS BIZ is offered in Essential, Standard and Premium editions.
TMS BIZ Essential
- New license: 395
- Yearly renewal: 120
TMS BIZ Standard
- New license: 495
- Yearly renewal: 150
Includes all TMS BIZ Essential products, plus:
TMS BIZ Premium
- New license: 595
- Yearly renewal: 180
Includes all TMS BIZ Standard products, plus:

Migration paths from TMS Business to TMS BIZ
If you are an existing TMS Business customer, you are probably asking yourself what is going to happen. It's very simple, in summary you have four paths: migrating to either TMS BIZ Essential, Standard or Premium, or just staying with existing TMS Business Subscription, which will be grandfathered. Here are the options you have depending on which path you choose:
Migrate to TMS BIZ Essential
To do that, just pay the TMS BIZ Essential renewal price when it's time for you to renew your license: 120 (for single license) or 405 (for site license).
Migrate to TMS BIZ Standard
Same as above: just pay the TMS BIZ Standard renewal price when it's time for you to renew your license: 150 (for single license) or 525 (for site license).
Migrate to TMS BIZ Premium
In this case, you will pay a one-time upgrade fee of 295 (for single license) or 995 (for site license). You will be upgraded to TMS BIZ Premium, and will get a year of support and updates. You will only need to renew one year after the date you paid the one-time upgrade fee.
Keep using the legacy TMS Business Subscription
Everything stays just as it is today, we have just increased the renewal price. When it's time for you to renew your license, it will be 180 (for single license) or 625 (for site license).
