About this Constellation ShortList

The emergence of a subscription economy coupled with digital business models drives the creation of a new type of solution known as Smart Services Digital Monetization Platforms. Legacy monetization systems lack the ability to support subscriptions, consumption-based models and one-time transactions. Smart Services Digital Monetization Platforms provide a monetization solution for organizations operating untraditional business models. These platforms are expected to support business models built on smart services for the Internet of Things, blockchain consensus and sharing economies.
