Offerings for Digital Transformation Leaders Disrupting Markets

We are very proud to announce that Zuora has been named to the Constellation ShortList™ for Smart Services Digital Monetization Platforms for Q1 2018.

The emergence of a subscription economy, coupled with digital business models, has driven the creation of a new type of solution that Constellation has named Smart Services Digital Billing.

Legacy billing systems lack the ability to support subscriptions, consumption-based models, and one-time transactions. Smart Services Digital Billing provides a billing solution for organizations that are operating nontraditional business models. Expect Smart Services Digital Billing to support business models built on smart services for IoT, blockchain consensus, and sharing economies.

Constellation advises leaders on leveraging disruptive technologies to achieve business model transformation. Products and services named to the Constellation ShortList meet the threshold criteria for this category as determined through client inquiries, partner conversations, customer references, vendor selection projects, market share and internal research. The Constellation ShortList is frequently updated as market conditions change.

• Account management
