Intelligent device manufacturers, including automobile makers, are increasingly relying on software to differentiate their products. This trend shifts the emphasis to increasingly connected device and usage-based software licensing terms.

The session will help attendees unlock new revenue streams for embedded software by understanding a customer's usage patterns, which provides support for making intelligent developments decisions, investigate how to reduce SKU (stock keeping unit) usage through remote enabling of different parts of the software stack in order to support different variations of similar products and ensure operational excellence, and create compelling value for customers through usage-based licensing models to better meet customers' needs.
