My short prompt today is about Cloud/SaaS infrastructure. Reading the following article by Dion Hinchcliffe comparing cost trends of leading cloudinfrastructure providers – Amazon, Google, Microsoft. What will define cost of PLM on a cloud? How do you see PLM SaaS cost trends in the future?
My take on this:
1. Future PLM SaaS Applications will be significantly cheaper in comparison to today’s on premise offering.
2. Cloud/SaaS will remove overlaps and customer will pay per specific PLM feature.
3. Cloud service providers will compete on their complimentary offering as part of PLM solutions.
Just my opinion. YMMV. What do you think about it?
