Market Insight Report: SaaS-Based Generative AI Pricing Trends

The market for enterprise software as a service (SaaS) has been marked by rapid economic shifts, technological advancements, and evolving customer expectations, all influencing the way in which software is consumed and paid. The advent of generative AI features, tools, and capabilities is likely to have an outsized and lasting impact on how SaaS platforms are packaged and priced over the coming months and years, as vendors attempt to gain market share while ensuring that the cost of providing the functionality—which can be costly—is appropriately managed.

Currently, a number of pricing schemes are being utilized to deliver generative AI functionality within enterprise SaaS platforms, including embedding the functionality within the standard license, seat-license pricing, charging for specific generative AI features, and, to a limited extent, consumption-based pricing.

In our latest offering, Market Insight Report: SaaS-Based Generative AI Pricing Trends, we detail the current state of enterprise-focused SaaS platform pricing, discuss how generative AI features are being delivered and priced, and discuss the value of shifting to a consumption-based model.

In this report, you will learn:

  • How SaaS platforms are currently pricing their generative AI offerings and features, with specific mentions of vendors deploying these tools
  • The specific factors and drivers that are forcing a shift in the way generative AI will be priced in the future
  • Methods for applying metrics and value to generative AI
  • Why consumption-based pricing is a great fit for both vendors delivering generative AI and customers that are increasingly consuming those services and functionality
  • Implications for vendors and customers as generative AI becomes ubiquitous

Successfully monetizing generative AI not only yields financial benefits but also enables organizations to deliver advanced and competitive solutions to their customers.
