SaaS: Subscription-based software

It seems like all we talk about these days is Office 365, Adobe Creative Cloud, SaaS this, and subscription that. The software industry is moving towards subscription based licensing. I attended a great indie conference for software publishers years ago.

He tied those findings to another study showing very low customer satisfaction with subscription-based models (surprise!). Things have greatly improved since then, but some of the truths of that old study remain. Subscription-based licensing is different, and it requires new thinking about the consumption of software and the management of a software estate.
