Generally, if your business model is recognized over time, recognition will be similar under the new standard. That said, I think people use the term "subscription revenue" pretty loosely (and maybe too broadly). What you have to watch out for and determine for yourself is the nature of each distinct performance obligation within what is provided to the customer.
