Get on the Grid: Utility Computing
The latest business model in licensing is the utility (on demand) computing and associated pricing. Sometimes called

utility based computing  electric and water bills, utility computing allows customers to purchase processing power and software access as needed and to pay based on how much and how often the software is used. This emerging model may even be attractive to large organizations, given that almost all of the initial hosted applications have targeted small and medium businesses (SMB). In the past, most first-generation hosted applications were not suitable for delivery over the Internet and certainly not appropriate for SMBs, its Read More

Disruptive Innovations? On-demand Pricing Models and Vendors
Vendors must make fundamental changes to sales and support processes to accommodate on-demand, transaction-based pricing. Software vendors must rethink the

utility based computing  decreases between releases. However, utility or grid computing, which is more or less a pay-as-you-go software-as-a-service, generates bite-size chunks of recurring revenue. Comparable revenue from the new model will emerge, but only over a longer period. This and waning technology-related services (and its revenue) can produce unsightly red marks on income statements. Moreover, eventual success is still, by no means, assured. Organizationally, vendors must also make fundamental changes to sales and Read More
A Tour of the Clouds
The term “cloud computing” might be the next biggest trend in the IT industry. Jorge Garcia explains some of the basic ideas behind cloud computing—and how it

You can pay your service based on a fix rate or based on other factors like the number of users, usage (time), and so on. •  Elasticity : This means rapid scalability. Resources (hardware and software) are provided without any intervention or awareness from the final user side. This is all based on consumption demand. • Resource Pooling : In a cloud computing platform, all resources are pooled. This means that all resources serve multiple users by using Read More
Jumping on the Cloud - A Measured Approach
There’s a lot of hype about companies moving to the cloud, but are they actually doing it? Cloud adoption is not as rapid as some providers might lead you to

utility based computing  the same way a utility company provides electricity to a consumer. How is cloud deployment different from on-premise deployment? As we can see from the description above, the technology being provided by cloud providers is in some ways no different than the technology stacks that you probably already support within your organization. You still have infrastructure, platform, and software stacks. The main difference is that with cloud computing your organization is no longer managing and controlling these Read More
Micron to Push
Personal computer maker Micron Electronics said Tuesday it will spend $210 million on its

In the short term, customers who decide they need to do this will be better served with a short-term lease a year or less to see if this model is really beneficial to their organization. It is often the case that a long-term rental costs more than buying the equipment up front, so customers will need to ensure pricing is truly beneficial. However, those Read More
