Why are we hosting this special event on usage based pricing?

In the last few months, usage based billing went from an eventual business optimization to an overnight requirement. Companies are no longer being rewarded for touting user growth. They need to generate revenue. At the same time, software budgets have become even more constrained, so buyers are unwilling to sign contracts for unproven solutions and will only pay for value.

We’re about to see a massive wave of companies making the shift to usage based pricing for the first time. Next year, 23% of companies plan to deploy usage based pricing, and this will only rise as companies see inactive accounts churn at higher rates while failing to monetize accounts that are realizing outsized value. As they make this necessary shift, finance, sales, and product teams will need to come together and iterate on pricing until a state of equilibrium is reached.
