From Traditional Tech Vendor to Subscription-Based Tech Growth Engine
Technology Vendors need to transform themselves and their channels to compete in the As a Service economy – where growth and differentiation are driven by added-value services.
This transition is not a question of ‘if’ – but when.
The value found in this new model comes from the combination, or bundling, of services and solutions with hardware – and not simply with hardware features. The switch to the subscription model is the right response to external market evolution – and one that offers you greater opportunities, repositioning, and huge revenue potential.
How you transform, be it by partnering up, or vertically integrating, will help you keep up with the global change in the IT supply chain. By doing this, a new world of valuable recurring revenue will open up, offering you exponential growth from the ‘pay-as-you-use’ model.
