London, United Kingdom, April 02, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Back when computers first became business essentials, all software was installed on site. But today, a lot of new services are in the cloud, and a company can buy just a few seats to trial the service. Many cloud services can be bought on a credit card, and with some companies not even needing the approval of an IT department, the buying process is simpler and faster.
These dramatic changes in the software business have important implications for both developers and vendors of software products and services. Today, it is easier for a vendor to convince a customer to buy a fully supported cloud-based product that requires little or no hardware expense, than to sell him a boxed software product, teach him how to get value from it and provide ongoing business support to retain that customer for the lifetime of the product.
