Home IT Asset Management Software

by | April 12, 2016

With a plethora of software development and deployment options available to independent software vendors, intelligent hardware manufacturers, and even enterprise dev/ops teams, why in the world wouldn’t you want to think through how you will monetize the solution over the long tail of its lifecycle?

(Hint: you wouldn’t if you cared about earnings per share, market share and customer experience)

Modern software deployment options have multiplied, ranging from traditional on-premises deployment using perpetually licensed development tools to hosted, SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) and cloud deployments using open stack dev/ops componentry.

The one constant theme revolves around key attributes like:

  • Intellectual property protection (from piracy and contract non-compliance)
  • Pricing model agility and flexibility (feature-based pricing elements, “freemium” models)
  • Offering precision optics into actual feature and resource consumption (usage)
  • Ensuring integration with back-end billing platforms for round-trip accounting

The cloud deployment model has recently expanded to service offerings, including Microsoft® Azure,Amazon® Web Services and more.
