Virtualization flips the axis on technology monetization and adoption

An exclusive review of TBR’s ongoing market analysis and tailored services frameworks

Technology monetization strategies continue pivoting from transaction sales to subscription sales predicated on building viable consortiums to generate the ecosystem flywheel effect. There has been an obvious shift in the consumption of basic compute resources from capitalized instances owned and maintained by enterprises to software-controlled, multicloud environments delivering “cloud economics” to traditional environments. Join TBR analysts Geoff Woollacott and Bryan Belanger as they analyze this shift and its expected impact on the market.

Virtualization and ongoing price point reductions shift internal IT departments from the role of security guard — rationing finite, costly resources — to the role of concierge — articulating the art of the possible to line-of-business users. In short, technology adoption will increasingly become a people problem addressed through consensus building around companywide business rules, while hardware has become a loss leader, as have some advisory services, to generate the long tail of sticky subscription services.

Don’t miss:

  • The general state of the technology monetization fabric and its disaggregation into discrete services components
  • The ongoing convergence of services providers, and the strengths and weaknesses of the conventional business models all struggling with the same pivot to participate in ecosystem flywheels
  • Common challenges needing market testing, given enterprise customers become increasingly unforgiving of monetization and service missteps
