April 04, 2012 // By Chris Wendt, Flexera
Is it better to build your own software licensing and entitlement management system or purchase a commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) solution? The ROI and benefits will vary from customer to customer, based upon business needs and market conditions. Historically, many software vendors and intelligent device companies attempted to build their own licensing and entitlement management systems, when at some point they realized that it was a losing proposition. In-house developed software licensing and entitlement management solutions become inflexible and not scalable, and required too many resources that should be applied to other areas of core-competency. Ultimately, they decided that a COTS solution was best. This white paper explores some of the top reasons to consider a COTS software licensing and entitlement management solution.
