Software delivery methods have changed significantly over time. Today, software-as-a-service (SaaS) is considered to be the most popular way for independent software (ISV) and intelligent device (IDV) vendors to deliver software. There are many advantages associated with SaaS products. The primary advantage associated with SaaS is the ability to offer subscription options to customers demanding more flexible licensing options.
In addition to a move to the cloud, the delivery of software through a hybrid approach is also gaining in popularity. A hybrid approach offers a best-of-both-worlds solution for organizations that see benefits to offering on-premises products that provide some of the benefits of SaaS. Throughout this report, hybrid licensing is defined as licensing of an application that is typically installed on-premises but includes a dependency on a cloud component or service. This ensures the availability of near-to-full-time connectivity, which allows SaaS concepts such as real-time usage tracking and dynamic updates and renewals to be incorporated to on-premises applications.
