Nickelodeon Embraces Recurring Revenue By @AriaSystemsInc | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Nickelodeon - The Newest Brand to Embrace the Move to Recurring Revenue

Can’t get enough of SpongeBob SquarePants? You’re in luck! Soon you’ll be able to watch your favorite show on demand.

Nickelodeon owner Viacom recently announced its plan to offer a stand-alone Internet offering that focuses on mobile viewers for the popular cable channel. Full details and offerings for the plan, which launches in March, haven’t been released yet so it’s still unclear how much subscribers will pay and if they will get the same services as cable and satellite TV subscribers or access to supplemental content and archives of past shows.

What we do know from this news, however, is that Viacom sees the long-term benefits of recurring revenue. When the company didn’t renew its contract with Netflix in 2013, it shut off streaming access to popular shows like SpongeBob. As a result, Viacom knew this service would be attractive to the parents of SpongeBob-loving children, who would buy into purchasing a subscription that allows them to take SpongeBob on the road with them via tablet or smartphone. As consumers continue to shift away from cable and towards streaming, Viacom needed to find a way to continue to monetize Nickelodeon’s most popular shows. Looks like they found an answer – the new subscription service will guarantee a continuous revenue stream.

The beauty of recurring revenue is that it can occur without forcing a complete remodel or recreation of a company. Repackaging existing products or services into different offerings is just one of many ways to implement recurring revenue into your business model.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several long phases into a faster, more efficient process. This methodology has a name, of course: Continuous delivery. As Jones pointed out at CloudEXPO, continuous delivery allows developers to trim the fat off tasks and gives them more time to focus on the individual parts of the process. But remember-implementing this methodology requires organizations to offload management of databases, infrastruct...
