Today there are a number of business software providers reworking their business models to provide subscription services to well-known and stable applications. Take a look around at what youre doing today and see if theres an application that you can buy a subscription for and use that as a test case.
Youll learn some things about the vendor and yourself and the way to you do business. The next time someone comes and says they have to buy a software package, ask if theyve looked for a software subscription provider as an alternative to buying, installing, and maintaining a licensed product. In the end youll wind up with a better set of applications and a lot less headaches.
