|AWS Announces Flexible SaaS Subscriptions for AWS Marketplace|
Customers can now subscribe to SaaS applications and APIs from a growing list of more than 20 ISVs directly through their AWS account
AWS Marketplace features more than 3,500 software listings from popular software vendors across 35 product categories, and over 100,000 active customers around the globe rely on it to find, buy, and immediately start using software that runs on AWS. AWS Marketplace already offers more than 800 SaaS and API listings. Now, ISVs can let AWS handle the metering and billing when customers purchase these products. With a flexible range of metering dimensions, ISVs can give customers options to pay in ways that best suit their needs. Deploying applications is simple, so customers can get SaaS applications up and running more quickly and get the security and scalability benefits of software built on AWS without having to manage the infrastructure it runs on.
With SaaS Subscriptions on AWS Marketplace, customers who use dozens of SaaS products across their organizations can manage all of the procurement, subscriptions, and payments in a single place, avoiding the hassle of dealing with separate bills from multiple ISVs. Customers get a single monthly bill that includes their SaaS usage charges along with charges for the other AWS Marketplace products and AWS services they use. Wider and easier access to SaaS products helps customers focus squarely on what differentiates their business, with less time and effort spent managing applications, infrastructure, procurement, and billing.
“Customers rely on AWS Marketplace to take the heavy lifting out of
procuring and deploying the software and services they need to run their
business. As SaaS becomes a strong preference for certain types of
applications, customers have asked us whether we can make it as easy to
find, subscribe to, and manage their favorite SaaS solutions as it is to
buy traditional software on AWS Marketplace,” said
Previously, ISVs that wanted to deliver a SaaS application to AWS customers needed to build their own metering and billing system, or purchase and integrate a third-party billing product. With SaaS Subscriptions on AWS Marketplace, ISVs can integrate their usage charges with a customer’s existing AWS bill through a new API, removing the need to build and maintain their own billing platform. This allows ISVs to focus on their products without diverting resources for billing, and can drive faster sales cycles with a streamlined purchasing experience.
“The design of the API and SDK that AWS Marketplace has delivered is
powerful in its simplicity, scalability and flexibility,” said
“We want to reengineer and simplify our software procurement and
deployment experience for our engineering teams and our business users,”
“New Relic's recently launched Infrastructure product is designed to
provide better visibility into cloud and hybrid architectures with a
specific focus on expanded monitoring capabilities for AWS products, so
it was important for us to deliver a frictionless buying experience for
AWS customers,” said
