Software As A Service Plans Significantly Lower Terminal Emulation Costs



Software as​ a​ Service Plans Significantly Lower Terminal Emulation Costs
Large organizations that currently pay for maintenance,​ support and software licenses have most to​ gain by switching to​ new software licensing model.
Licensing terminal emulation using a​ Software as​ a​ Service (SaaS) plan can drastically lower the​ cost of​ accessing legacy applications .​
This is​ especially true for large organizations that either require or​ favor having their terminal emulation users covered by a​ maintenance and support agreement.
SaaS licensing plans are also ideal for organizations that plan to​ retire their mainframe systems at​ some point in​ the​ future,​ but short term require updated terminal emulation.
Zephyr specializes in​ SaaS licensing for organizations that require either Attachmate or​ IBM compatible terminal emulation .​
Both desktop and browser-based terminal emulation can be licensed through the​ Zephyr SaaS program.
The primary benefits of​ the​ Zephyr SaaS plan includes:
- lower upfront costs in​ comparison to​ traditional license model
- may be treated as​ a​ lease versus a​ capitalized asset
- software,​ support,​ maintenance and upgrades included in​ one fee
- predictable annual expense can be easily budgeted
- escalation of​ license fee can be negotiated upfront
- ideal for organizations that plan to​ retire mainframe systems at​ some point
For example,​ an​ enterprise with 10,​000 users that pays $75 for a​ one-time terminal emulation upgrade and a​ maintenance and support plan of​ 15% of​ the​ license fee,​ could save over 50% during a​ 10 year period with an​ all inclusive plan that features the​ terminal emulation software,​ maintenance,​ support and major upgrades .​
Organizations with greater numbers of​ users have the​ opportunity to​ save even more.
Zephyr specializes in​ SaaS licensing for customers that require desktop or​ browser-based IBM 3270,​ 5250 or​ UNIX terminal emulation for Microsoft Windows using TN3270E,​ TN5250E,​ VT,​ SCO ANSI or​ Wyse 60 protocols .​
Six years after the​ Zephyr SaaS program was introduced,​ the​ large majority of​ its customer base now licenses the​ Zephyr PASSPORT terminal emulation software and support services on​ an​ annual basis using a​ Software as​ a​ Service plan.
