Financial services firms, utilities, healthcare and businesses in other industries can create pricing models to drive customer behavior and service stickiness. As companies move their businesses to the cloud and offer more cloud-based services, they must determine how to best monetize business models. In his presentation, Scott Swartz will discuss the need to maintain elasticity and flexible pricing to support differentiated business models not just simple, recurring subscriptions to enable cloud-based service providers to fluidly adjust price points based on usage or other behavior.
“Because the cloud-based delivery model is based upon flexibility and on-demand delivery, the billing structure underpinning these services must be just as elastic,” said Scott Swartz. “While this may not have always been the case, more cloud service providers are now adopting flexible pricing models, including peak and off-peak rates to drive customer behavior.”
