As the value of hardware continues to shift more and more from the physical components to the software running the device, the need to protect and flexibly control that software is becoming paramount. Gemalto offers several software monetization solutions tailored specifically to securely manage software embedded within any piece of hardware – from networking and routing appliances and medical devices to mobile handsets and industrial automation equipment. Gemalto’s Embedded Software Monetization Solutions provide device and equipment manufacturers all the tools they need to effectively protect their products from tampering and reverse engineering while also opening up an entirely new world of packaging and opportunities to maximize profitability.
A comprehensive monetization strategy can help increase revenue, reduce operational costs, and increase profitability by :
Order placed by a customer through ERP or CRM flows into Sentinel EMS.
Product Suite including the product and features requested by the customer gets generated in Sentinel EMS.
The license information with appropriate entitlements gets delivered to the customer for Embedded application or standard system application.
Based on the usage, billing information is generated for the customer. Business Intelligence for future product enhancements becomes easy from collective reports of all customers.
Gemalto’s Embedded Software Monetization Solutions are tailored specifically to protect and manage software embedded within any piece of hardware—from networking appliances and medical devices to mobile handsets and industrial automation equipment. A reduced footprint paired with efficient use of memory allows our embedded product offerings to meet the strictest of embedded environment constraints without compromising device performance. In addition, these solutions enable you to implement licensing to gain control of the software powering your device at the feature level. The ability to control your hardware at the software feature level allows you to more cost effectively manage product configurations while also enabling a wider variety of business models in order to attract and retain more customers.
Feature-level control will also help to simplify and in many cases automate the processes associated with many ongoing sales and support tasks such as upgrades, renewals, add-ons, and more. Finally, the same technology used to control access to your features can be used to report on product and feature usage. This data can be used to fuel usage based business models or to generate invaluable business intelligence.
