Dear Deirdre

Can we classify or consider Shareware software programs as a output product of a Proof of concept (POC) document ?

i.e. Shareware programs allow users to download and explore the application on a trial basis (1 month, 3 months etc) for their business needs.  if the users are satisfied, they have to buy the licence version by paying the price of the software product.

i.e. Input -> Proof of Concept (Prototype)
    Output -> Shareware application

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Shareware is simply a sales model - it's the "try before you buy" method of sales - much like ordering an item and being able to get a full refund if you don't like the item. Much shareware today is time-locked. If you wish to use it beyond a certain date, you must buy a license.
The concept is usually proved when the software is written - the only question that remains is suitability for a particular purpose.
