This IDC Perspective identifies and details the shift from software delivered as on-premise applications to SaaS to discover the opportunity for monetization tools and services associated with business model changes.
"The success and forecast high growth of the SaaS business model will result in most software vendors evolving to a subscription model. Although it seems that SaaS is the norm now, there are many markets and software companies that are in the early days of transformation. These companies can benefit by adopting the proper tools and operational techniques to ensure their move to SaaS is efficient and profitable." — Mark Thomason, research director, Digital Business Models and Monetization
