Subscription computing

The Subscription Computing model is one where providers that supply not only network access and a foundation suite of applications, but also the complete user environment—including all customer premises equipment—as a package for a monthly subscription. Companies offering this service include IBM and Microsoft. Microsoft offers subscription computing as Microsoft FlexGo.[1]
