Realizing the full value of subscriptions

Top-line revenue growth, cost containment, network visibility, risk management, and enterprise network security are the core goals of every enterprise. However, achieving those objectives can be challenging.

 

Most enterprise infrastructures are complex, comprised of different systems, vendors, and contracts, at various stages of asset depreciation and end-of-life stages. While a subscription-based management infrastructure might reduce technical and financial risk, many enterprises struggle to maximize the full value of the purchased solutions.

This is where Software Lifecycle Management can help: minimizing the adoption risk by using a mix of technical experts, services, and customer experience guidance. It works across every stage of the journey with those core goals in mind to accelerate time to value and ensure outcome delivery. Adoption and consumption barriers are proactively identified and addressed, maximizing software ROI. ​

Your business can get everything from personal productivity applications to complex financial management software for a simple monthly payment. Yet every few years, you still buy complex, expensive network equipment to keep your underlying infrastructure running.

In this blog, Kyle Reese explores how you can pay for that functionality in the same way. ​
