Stryker Corporation, one of the world’s leading medical technology companies, is in the midst of a transformation, moving its medical device hardware to a services-based model in order to meet the demands of today’s hospitals and surgeons where capital expense budgets are shrinking.
To meet market demand, a new license management platform was needed to enable Stryker to adopt new license models including trials, concurrent users, subscriptions, and usage based. The new system also needed to support isolated networks.
Stryker researches and evaluated three commercial licensing technology vendors including cloud-based platforms. This case study discusses the solution Stryker chose, the selected implementation approach and benefits achieved.
