Successful technology implementation starts with the budgeting process. This time of the year is an active period of annual budget planning, and we work with our clients to ensure they develop and submit their requests as accurately and effectively as possible. This year we see increased interest in understanding how the latest evolving technology trends might impact the budget planning process. Of particularly note are SaaS, subscription model solutions versus traditional on premises, perpetual licenses. Each model presents a broad range of budget related considerations, including license fees, maintenance, training, support and infrastructure.
In this TrendView™ Report we review the key areas to consider in developing your software procurement budget in the SaaS and perpetual license worlds. We discuss license fee options, infrastructure costs and ongoing maintenance and support, as well as upgrades and budget treatment. We outline the differences between subscription and perpetual licenses, and identify a number of key considerations in selecting the best approach for your situation.
