Many of our customers in High-tech, Automotive, Oil and Gas and other industries are waking up to a world that is suddenly anything but certain in the wake of coronavirus pandemic. We have seen a few crises (Dotcom, 9/11, 2008 Financial Crisis..) and have first hand experience of the financial stress that it puts on organizations of all sizes and in all industries. And in many cases the period of stress can last as long as 2 years. We hope that the coronavirus pandemic is short-lived and everything gets back to normal by the summer of 2020. However, it is prudent to be prepared for an extended period of duress and recovery. The last thing we want our customers to worry about during this period is the cost of ZPLM subscription.
As a small token gesture to make life easy for our customers during this period, there will be no subscription fee (for AWS customers) and no license/maintenance fee for on-premise customers till December 31, 2020.
