Had a good conversation with the WSPGroup last week.
They published a whitepaper about Electronic Software Delivery a few months ago that is very detailed and worth a read.
Its our experience that these benefits require a huge scale (like the Microsoft case) to become a primary driver of transition to electronic delivery, but they are applicable at a small scale as complimentary ROI for other ESD initiatives.
So, take please take a look at the environmental advantages that you may be able to take credit for as you look at upgrading your software delivery practices to include ESD and entitlement management.
We had another discussion today on the differences between entitlement and enforcement in software licensing schemes.
Here is an image we have used to draw the distinction from our perspective.
We’ve developed our systems to enable publishers a high degree of control over the entitlement of software and technology. Preserving flexible entitlement choices for publishers eases some of the burden on downstream enforcement tools in a number of business scenarios.
