If you answered the latter, Revenue, then this feature is for you. You can now quota and measure your reps on Recognized Revenue rather than the typical Bookings Target.

To put your instance into “Revenue” mode simply go to Setup > General and enable Revenue Scheduling. Next you will need to adjust your quotas or target to be Revenue based.
