SafeNet to Address the Evolution of Usage-Based Software Licensing
All About the Cloud 2013 Presentation to Demonstrate Successful Software Monetization Strategies for SaaS Providers and ISVs Transitioning to the Cloud
BALTIMORE, April 30, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Software monetization leader, SafeNet, Inc., today announced that Shlomo Weiss, Vice President of the company’s Software Monetization division, will speak at the Software & Information Industry Association’s AATC (All About the Cloud) 2013 conference taking place at The Palace Hotel in San Francisco, May 7-9, 2013. Mr. Weiss’ presentation, entitled “Getting to Pay-per-Use Nirvana – Charging Customers for What They Actually Use,” will focus on the evolution of usage-based business models.
“Users are demanding software licensing transparency, and cloud-based and traditional ISVs alike must address this demand or risk losing business,” said Michelle Nerlinger, Vice President of Marketing, SafeNet. “Customers only want to pay for what they’re using, but delivering flexible licensing and enforcing and monitoring usage requires sophisticated software monetization solutions. Those same solutions help software publishers maximize revenue by opening up new markets and inevitably creating a better customer experience by delivering what customers really want, without overcharging them for virtual or literal shelf-ware.”
SafeNet Speaking Session
Getting to Pay-per-Use Nirvana - Charging Customers for What They Actually Use
Wednesday, May 8(th), 1:10-1:35 p.m.
Usage-based business models provide long-sought transparency between vendor and end-user while providing a plethora of benefits to everyone involved. For end users it becomes much easier to draw an association to what is being used and what is being paid for, and for vendors it is a great way to reach the widest range of markets while making customer lifecycle management much more effective.
In this session, SafeNet’s Vice President, Cloud Solutions, Shlomo Weiss, will discuss how companies are successfully evolving their business models to charge customers based on actual usage of their solutions using a wide variety of techniques. Shlomo will cover the motivation for moving to a usage-based model and review real-world examples based on work SafeNet has done with SaaS providers and transitioning ISVs around the world to help them effectively monetize their services.
Case studies and practical knowledge in this session will address:
- Usage-based pricing – why do customers want it?
- Finding the right model for your business
- Potential pitfalls – what to be aware of
- How to implement usage-based pricing models
