Usage-Based Monetization for Enterprise: Expanding Business Possibilities Beyond the Subscription

Usage-Based Monetization for Enterprise: Expanding Business Possibilities Beyond the Subscription

Imagine traveling back in time years to 1965.

If a person took this journey, how would he react, even if he had previously lived through this period? The people in 1965 would essentially look the same as we do today. The landscape would likely be familiar, though most cities would have far fewer people. Many “oldies” from the nascent rock ‘n roll era would be hitting the airwaves for the first time; and, of course, Elvis would still be with us.

A big shock to anyone from 2015 would be the difference in “things.” Huge cars made from mostly metal and chrome, with only an AM radio, would be burning cheap gas. They would contain no airbags or seatbelts. They would also have no screens. Typewriters, many not even connected to electricity, would function without a digital display. Phones constrained to a physical location, would operate only with a rotary dial, with no touchscreen to be found. In fact, the only displays one might see would be beaming from the cathode ray tubes in televisions. Though the body of a TV set would be quite bulky and even fashioned into a piece of furniture, the TV screen itself would be small relative to 2015 standards. Most of them would provide viewers with a black and white picture, and only receive a few channels.
