Why Software Licensing Must Consider The Needs Of The End User

Why Software Licensing Must Consider The Needs Of The End User

As the traditional software application market migrates from the desktop to the enterprise and mobile, end user license management becomes a must-have design issue for software development servicing the eLearning community. For more than twenty-five years, I have had the pleasure of working with commercial software development teams. My first real lesson came when I joined Software Publishing Corporation as VP of development where end user awareness was more important than features. And then there was the effort involved with consumer-based software authentication in the form of end user licensing. I was surprised how much time we spent in internal warfare discussing how best to enforce user access with product management, financial, and legal effort. I’ve learned some dos and don’ts about software licensing that I’d like to share. Warning: This is going to sound a little preachy.
