Profitability with New Revenue Streams from Flexible Software Licensing
Independent software vendors clearly understand the strategic importance of the applications they develop – it's their business. But protecting intellectual property and properly monetizing your investments requires a comprehensive and flexible software license management solution that far too many manage tactically at best. In fact, according to Business Software Alliance and IDC research, in 2013 alone, more $62.7 billion worth of software was stolen.
Intelligent device manufacturers are increasingly having to combat rapid commoditization of their hardware and are turning to software applications to create product differentiation. Software licensing solutions, through their ability to electronically control product configurations, also hold the key to configure-to-order manufacturing that reduces manufacturing complexity and leans out supply chain operations.
While many software developers feel inclined to develop software licensing solutions internally for their products, this too frequently becomes a short-term solution designed only to solve today's problem and requiring more than anticipated ongoing investment. Such homegrown solutions typically lack the flexibility to quickly adapt to changing market conditions that require changes in software licensing models to meet the evolving needs of your customers.
