Grantek’s Sam Russem Answers How Does Software-as-a-Service Benefit Manufacturers? for Automation World Magazine
July 20, 2022
The July 2022 issue of Automation World Magazine takes a look at Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) as it relates to manufacturing. This issue features an article written by Grantek’s Sr. Director of Smart Manufacturing Solutions, Sam Russem. Sam writes from his position as an industry expert, and also a MESA International Board Member.
“Software providers are continuing to move towards SaaS models for developing, delivering, and monetizing their work, and that trend is breaking into the manufacturing space. Many traditional manufacturing software providers are offering SaaS and subscription options, and some new players may not offer classic licensing models at all. SaaS is not just some scheme to put more money in the pockets of software providers. There is real value to be gained by manufacturers who learn when, where, and how to embrace this new paradigm.”
