  • Speaker: Ludwig Dierks
  • Title: Viability of Single Software Subscriptions
  • Abstract: Traditionally, software licenses are offered for a one time payment that allows continued use of the software. Recently, another business model enjoys rising promenance: selling subscriptions that require regular payments for continued use of the software. In this talk we present early stage research into the viability of such subscription services for consumer software and when, if ever, it should be used instead or alongside a classic buy option.
