Consumption-Based Licensing: Managing Risk in Enterprise Software Deployments
CapEx and OpEx management, project planning, ROIC, NPV, planning horizon, Gant charts, risk mitigation… all commonly-used terms in business cases for management of complex IT projects.
In most cases new software platforms are a foundation for transformation and software vendors are happy to help build sophisticated models with detailed project, resourcing and roll-out plans, supported by large licensing discounts for immediate volume purchases.
The problem? Project roll-outs rarely go as planned, delays are routine and cost overruns can take the return out of ROI.

It “provides technology leaders with standards and validated best practices to communicate the cost, quality, and value of IT investments to their business partners. In turn, IT is able to drive innovation for their organization.” Transparency is a TBM cornerstone. Consumption-based licensing is a natural fit with smart technology business management.
