White Paper: The New World of Global Electronic Software Distribution
Sophisticated, Scalable … and Business Smart
Much of the focus in the software world is on building the applications. However, the software delivery experience for users across the world is the first impression and an important moment. Smooth downloads leave a good impression. Problem downloads leave a poor impression, even before the product is used. Beyond the first impression, it’s also an important revenue protection moment. Only customers with current licenses should be allowed to download software and updates. Accurate tracking of who is entitled to software is a core component of electronic software distribution.
By taking a closer look at how to meet global customer expectations and protect revenue when delivering software, organizations can simplify software distribution and achieve 2 key goals:
- Make downloads easy and fast for users around the world
- Increase the accuracy of entitlements to protect revenue
The powerful sophistication of today’s electronic software delivery solutions has increased their popularity as a means to achieve these goals. This white paper will review what’s behind that growth, including typical problems, how a world-class electronic software delivery solution solves these challenges, and key considerations to get started.
