Service
Identification
This article looks at techniques for the identification of web services. We suggest that service identification is not a linear progression of conventional analysis techniques, and that services require consideration of a number of additional perspectives.

One of the important perspectives discussed in this article is the pricing of web services, and the various pricing schemes available. Design of web services may be influenced by the need to maximize service revenue.

Component
Pricing
One of the perennial topics of Component-Based Development and now web services as well is the supply and demand of components (and web services). Many CBD players are eagerly looking forward to a much livelier component market healthy supply and healthy demand. Both of these factors are seriously inhibited if the pricing is opaque and inefficient. And yet there is surprisingly little serious discussion of pricing. CBDi Forum

Differential Pricing

veryard projects > business > pricing > differential


Differential pricing strictly means charging different prices for the same product/service at the same quality level -- but is often used more loosely to refer to differential service -- where the higher price version comes with additional features or improved quality. For example, a gold-card or platinum-card version, as compared to the basic version. Or a software product may come in various editions -- for example, an Educational Edition, a Professional Edition and Enterprise Edition -- at vastly different price tags.

Goldilocks Pricing

Online economists Shapiro and Varian suggest that the real reason the airlines offer first-class fares is to give business travellers a justification for flying business class. This is an example of Differential Pricing.
