Financial Guide for Converting Perpetual Software Licenses to Software as a Service (SaaS)

March 02, 2016

This financial guide, complemented by its associated workbook, assists the reader in determining if it makes business sense to convert to Software as a Service (SaaS) or continue to operate under a Perpetual licensing arrangement. The workbook’s methodology provides ways of estimating and comparing the Total Cost of Ownership of future operations under the two scenarios. Additionally, the Toolkit offers approaches for situations where the Publisher/License Grantor has discontinued Perpetual Licensing and is now only offering SaaS/Cloud offerings.
