Some questions to help ponder this topic further?

 


Consider cost analysis and ROI?

 

Is it more costly to purchase a third-party licensing technologies platform or to develop and support one internally?

What is the return on investment (ROI) of licensing technologies?

Our team cannot answer these complex questions for each software publisher in every circumstance.

Either approach is going to require an investment. Oftentimes, the decision comes down to whether it makes more sense to continue spending money on maintaining and improving a homegrown system or outdated product that isnít meeting the need, or if investigating the purchase of a third-party solution, such as LicenseDNA platform, that could meet current and future needs is a better approach.

One important point is that when considering the investment required for building a platform internally, publishers often underestimate the cost.

Web Applications Activation


Software Activation Process

  • Publishers should consider the entire life cycle from manufacturing to distribution in order to properly evaluate the decision to leverage a platform like LicenseDNA, in its broader context. 
     
  • Publishers should consider ongoing trends in pricing and packaging that call for additional flexibility as well as support for new usage scenarios and more granular packaging. Vendors will continually need to evaluate their pricing and packaging strategies. As a result, managing a platform of license management technologies should be viewed as an ongoing process.
     
  • A software publisherís understanding of its core competencies with regards to building and maintaining a licensing technology platform is often a key driver in the build versus buy decision. Some publishers may believe that since the companyís core business is developing software, this capability can and should be extended to software-based licensing technologies. Executives at other publishers may come to the conclusion that although developing software is a core competency, developing and maintaining a platform of licensing technologies is not.
     
  • Build versus buy decisions often come down to cost. Either approach is going to require an investment. Oftentimes, the decision comes down to whether it makes more sense to continue spending money on maintaining a homegrown system or outdated product that isnít meeting the need, or if investing in a third-party solution that meets current and future needs is a better approach.


Build vs. Buy?

 


 

 

 

 

Product activation is required when a user launches a protected software application for the first time.  A unique installation identifier is sent to the LicenseDNA Activation Services which generates a license to unlock, or activate, the software.  Depending on the business model implemented by the software publisher, this license may unlock the software permanently or for a specific period of time or number of uses.  It can also restrict usage to specific features.

After it has been activated, the protected software application may be used only within the parameters set by the software license.  For example, if it is a time-limited trial license and the trial has expired, the user will not be able to use the product and will be prompted to purchase it.  Once the user completes the purchase, a new software license is delivered from the LicenseDNA Activation Services which will allow unrestricted use of the software.

Advantages of product activation:

 


Leverage LicenseDNA to support pre-built user authentication, online pricing management, user access, support services, online trial period management, logic related to upgrade / downgrade user access, parameter based billing services based on a variety of permutations of policies and more..
