Almost half of the IT managers asked in this week's Computer Weekly/Harvey Nash Big Question poll would still prefer their company to purchase perpetual licences for software, despite Microsoft's introduction of subscription licensing options.

Microsoft will introduce subscription licensing options for its software on 1 October. These could bring short-term gains for companies, but 48% of respondents would still prefer to purchase licences that give them the perpetual right to run the software once it is paid for.

A considerable number of IT managers (41%) admitted that they did not know which licensing option was best for their company. Most said their decision would depend on the rental price.
