Virtually Speaking Podcast: Traditional Licensing VS SaaS

This week on the Virtually Speaking Podcast we welcome Glenn Sizemore to discuss the differences between traditional licensing model compared to software-as-a-service (SaaS)

Traditional vs SaaS

The transition this month of Windows Server 2016 from "mainstream" to "extended" support made me curious about traditional software licensing and how it differs from the software-as-a-service business model. Over the years, companies like Microsoft, Google, Salesforce, and even Amazon have implemented successful SaaS offerings. VMware CEO Raghu Raghuram emphasized the same priority to become the multi-cloud platform provider of choice by accelerating the transformation to a subscription and SaaS business model.

On this episode of the Virtually Speaking Podcast, we welcome Glenn Sizemore to look at the enterprise software business model and the benefits of SaaS.
