The move from perpetual to subscription is in full swing. IDC predict that by the end of this year “100% of organizations will have a migration plan in place to shift spending from perpetual software licenses to subscription-based pricing.”

Software producers and buyers alike prefer subscription pricing as it provides more flexibility, is adaptable to customer needs and is an operational expenditure, rather than a capital investment. Subscription models are also prevalent in former hardware-centric industries like Medical, Networking or Manufacturing where device, software, services and data are bundled and offered based on a subscription model.

In this Flexera Webinar Cris Wendt, Industry Expert and Principal Consultant at Flexera, will walk you through best practices and considerations for producers that move to subscription:

  • How do you build the business case and find the right price points?
  • What is the market adoption and what are the pros and cons for producers and their customers?
  • How do you manage the shift from perpetual to subscription?
  • What are the operational considerations in a subscription business?
