Software Licensing Market – Overview

The Global Software Licensing Market is accruing with the demand of large IT enterprises like Microsoft, Accenture, and IBM. These Software Licensing s are required to comply with relevant laws and regulations, non-adherence of which can cause heavy penalties. While, there are several organizations providing the free and open licensing domain which provide the guidelines and definitions regarding software licensing. However, the implementation of software Licensing solutions helps in providing the control over piracy to a large extent. Moreover, the software Licensing management involves in keeping track of the software and its maintenance. The key growth driver is the need to reduce piracy issues.

Accrediting the prominence Software Licensing is gaining in the current scenario and projecting the traction its growing market size would gain in the future, the Market Research Future, recently published a distinctive study report according to which the global Software Licensing Market is forecasted to perceive phenomenal accruals by 2023, crossing its previous growth records in terms of value registering substantial CAGR during the period 2017 to 2023. The global Software Licensing market is estimated to expected aggrandize up to USD ~14.34 Billion by 2023, registering a CAGR of ~8.6% during 2017 and 2023.

The MRFR Analysis indicates that the on-premises segment is dominated the software Licensing market in 2016, accounting for a total market share of more than 53%. However, this segment will drop during the forecast period due to its high maintenance costs.

Cloud and SaaS is growing fast, and is the clear direction for the next generation network.  Software Licensing is a key monetization driver for software and within the context of a term-based subscription contract will determine how much a vendor can charge and how much a customer will pay for on-premise software or SaaS delivered via the cloud.

Usage-based licensing models can be implemented in SaaS and pure-play cloud environments as well as on-premises and with embedded software. Often, customers pay just for the features they need. For example, Siemens Energy Automation worked with monetization specialist Gemalto to arrive at a new licensing model after repeated requests from various customers for the ability to either turn on or turn off certain features in its software.

Other new approaches are based on a pay-per-use model. For instance, if a given application is viewed as valuable by a customer, but is only used occasionally, the enterprise might agree to pay a set fee for using the app 10 times, noted Dave DeMilo, principal consultant, Gemalto Software License Professional Services. During the last decade the term “cloud” has become a mainstream keyword in most of IT topics. The cloud has changed the way institutions and companies are managing their needs. Customers do not buy anymore IT products like hardware or software, instead they pay for the delivery of IT services. For example, companies do not buy servers, hard disks, RAM and processors anymore, instead they pay for storage, memory and computation. In a similar way, they do not pay for software licenses but they pay for the use of software.
