Enhancing Industrial Automation Solutions with Embedded Software: New Efficiencies and Faster Cycle Times

A Software Licensing, Device Monetization and Entitlement Management White Paper

For Industrial and Building Automation Providers

In today's ultra-competitive global business environment, many industrial automation and building control automation providers are applying software licensing principles to hardware that uses electronics to control and manage capability and capacity.

As embedded software becomes more integral to industrial and building automation providers, more and more manufacturers are discovering the power of software licensing. With licensing, manufacturers can turn device features and/or capacity on and off as appropriate. This allows them to charge customers for the capabilities they want, while not charging them for capabilities they don’t want. Electronic licensing enables manufacturers to more effectively use embedded software as a means of managing and monetizing the features and functionality they provide in their devices.

This white paper discusses the challenges faced by industrial and building automation providers and showcases how a global building automation company streamlines inventory and reduces cycle times with FlexNet Producer Suite for Intelligent Device Manufacturers, the leading embedded software licensing, device lifecycle and entitlement management solution from Flexera Software.
