The Software Buying Challenge
Shift to Subscription and SaaS Licensing Models
Subscription-based software licensing, such as Software as a Service (SaaS), has become popular within organizations due to its promise of in flexibility, speed, and agility. Though these benefits are real, they are diminished by significant risks, such as high switching costs and vendor incumbency, leaving customers vulnerable to large price increases and locked-in annual fees.
