XaaS simply refers to “anything-as-a-service,” such as software-as-a-service (SaaS) or device-as-a-service (DaaS), where products and services can be purchased in a subscription-based “pay as you go” model. The advent of digital transformation, where more people are turning to digital technology to solve traditional problems, is only increasing customer demand for as-a-service offers.
If you’re looking to keep up with customer demands while growing profitability, TSIA recommends embracing XaaS business model transformation with subscription offers that are anchored on helping customers achieve specific business outcomes. When supported by a customer engagement model that cost-effectively drives the adoption, expansion, and renewal of customer contracts, you can make the shift towards including subscription offers as part of your broader portfolio.
