Software companies and intelligent device manufacturers often have homegrown software monetization design solutions that become increasingly difficult to maintain or older systems that do not meet the needs and requirements of today's dynamic environment.
Introduction of new software monetization technology can be difficult; especially when integrating with back office systems. Plus, at many organizations, product teams are typically staffed only to the point of producing core functionality and not for extensive licensing development.
Flexera Global Consulting Services has extensive experience helping organizations design state-of-the-art licensing solutions. The System Design engagement empowers organizations to create a blueprint for their software system design and licensing system solutions.
The System Design service will deliver the following benefits:
The software monetization design engagement is delivered by two Flexera Consultants (typically one principal consultant—usually a solution architect) and one senior consultant (a product expert) in three phases:
Phase I: Advance Preparation and Planning
This phase involves workshop agenda refinement (Flexera) and several pre-workshop questionnaires (customer).
Phase II: Discovery Workshops
This phase includes a series of workshops based upon our Flexera Success Framework. The workshops typically involve from 16 – 30 stakeholders from various groups. Typical topics include: Business objectives and drivers, Product overview and positioning, Product use cases, Sales channel models, etc.
Phase III: Design Cycle
During this phase, the organization will create, review and revise requirements and design specifications. The specification will include topics such as (but not limited to): Requirements, Business and technical use-case details, Product configuration, Systems architecture and more.
