Home > Solutions > Software Solutions >  Software Annuity Licensing

An Annuity is defined as an agreement by which one receives fixed payments on an investment for a lifetime or for a specified number of years. As it relates to the purchase of software licensing, an annuity (also known by terms such as assurance, insurance, maintenance and renewal) offers customers the chance to gain access to the newest emerging software technologies — and even in some cases gives customers access to training and other tools.


Annuity licensing helps customers to save money by ensuring that they receive the new product versions if released during the specified annuity period. In some cases, customers are even able to purchase an annuity after they have already purchased specified software licensing solutions.


An annuity can help to:

  • Protect your software investment
  • Ensure continued productivity through the latest software versions
