“When business models shift they have profound consequences,” Todd Hewlin imparts. “If you stick to the old business model too long, you have a Kodak moment. You get stuck with a film camera business model, assets, capabilities, when the world has gone digital. You get on the front end and you lead a new business model and you have an Apple moment.”
Todd drives home the importance of vision and utilizing new concepts for doing business in a dynamic industry where billions of dollars of annual revenue are at stake.
“B4B is about putting our companies in service to the outcomes that customers wish to achieve and kind of skipping that journey of that huge bill of materials of stuff that we previously asked customers to consume so that we could make our numbers.”
Todd Hewlin shares how companies can make the transition from the traditional B2B model, which was designed to sell things to customers, to the new B4B model, which is designed to deliver outcomes to customers in a world where technology plays a key role in the customer-supplier relationship.

Consumption Economics: The New Rules of Tech
If you’re a tech company, the most dramatic effect of megatrends like cloud computing, managed services, and the rise of consumer technology won’t be felt in your company’s product line. The true disruption will be to your business model. Future customers won’t want to pay you high prices out of big “CapEx” budgets anymore. They will expect lower “cloud” prices paid from “OpEx” budgets only when and if they successfully consume the business value of your products.How your company reacts to this risk shift could either accelerate the commoditization of your products or lead you to a new stage of profitable growth. For the first time, the tools are on the table to truly eliminate barriers of cost and complexity created by the last generation of tech. Consumption Economics is the owner’s manual for tech company executives who want to drive their company successfully into the next one.
