Most hardware manufacturers are developing applications for their products – transforming them into "intelligent devices." But the majority of manufacturers are still not monetizing that software – leaving money on the table. This is the conclusion drawn from a new Flexera Software Application Usage Management Survey prepared jointly with IDC, which surveyed more than 750 respondents from application producers and end-user enterprises, including more than 125 device manufacturers, on all aspects of managing the software license lifecycle.

According to the survey, device manufacturers say their biggest concerns today center around agility, costs and margins. 48% said that a major concern was reducing time to market for creating new products. 38% of respondents said enhancing their ability to react quickly to changing market needs and/or new market opportunities are paramount among their major challenges. Reducing time to market for creating product enhancements (37%), reducing manufacturing costs (36%), and low margins (23%) also topped manufacturers’ lists of concerns.
