The Build vs. Buy Dilemma

Why Intelligent Device Manufacturers should Consider a Purpose-built Software Monetization Solution

Software is eating the world and every company is becoming a software company. The Internet of Things is changing our lives and at the core of all this hype is software – the applications that make devices more valuable.

As you contemplate how to protect and maximize the value of this software you’ll be faced with a choice: Should we BUY a Software Monetization solution or should we better BUILD it in-house. In fact, there are many aspects to consider and you will often face different opinions in your project team. Some will argue that a licensing solution can easily be developed by the engineers working on the software product anyway. Others might question the scalability of a homegrown solution and prefer a purpose-built solution as they expect it to be more flexible to be adapted to changing market demands and new monetization models.
