Licensing models

New, demand oriented licensing models for the TIA Portal

With the release of TIA Portal V17 and TIA Portal Cloud, additional licensing models are available that are flexibly adapted to the user’s requirements.

Benefit from predictable costs

Until now, the TIA Portal was available only as a license for one-time purchase. An additional, need-based payment model is now available for TIA Portal V17 and TIA Portal that can be flexibly adapted to your goals and requirements, similarly to the well-known licensing model offered by providers of streaming services.


Choices include the established, unlimited licensing model with an optional software update service as well as the new annual subscription model. The subscription model for the stationary TIA Portal version is tailored to special requirements by means of packages and is suitable for both small and very large companies, whether for individual machines or complex plants.


A monthly subscription model is available for TIA Portal Cloud or, alternatively, a pay-per-use model in which only actual use is billed.
