From a software license business into a SaaS business

This is worth of reading.

In 2.5 years, Adobe has transformed its business from a software license business into a SaaS business. It’s been a remarkable transition, and one not talked about very much in the SaaS world. Transitions from licensed software to SaaS are rare.

This is driven by the expansion of the institutional seed investor and the tripling of seed stage capital available to founders.
