Profiting from IoT: How to effectively monetise software

The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing how manufacturers approach software sales. Previously, embedded software was a given with all products. You pay for the product, you get the hardware – and the associated updates and upgrades. Now, however, manufacturers are moving from a one-off sales model to a recurring revenue one. Software monetisation is essential to this, but the change is easier said than done; many manufacturers face resistance from their customers when implementing these changes.
