SaaS (Software-as-a-Service) Products And Business Models Will Have Selective Impact
Here is InfoWorld’s Chris Kanaracus interview with Forrester’s principal analyst Liz Herbert “Analytics, service orchestration, and mobility are just a few of the new facets of on-demand software”.
Liz Herbert’s report identifies five key areas of change for SaaS: Industry specialization, embedded analytics, orchestration of multiple services, social networking, and mobility.
Software-as-a-service (SaaS) is an important new set of capabilities and engagement models in the IT industry, particularly in the emerging world of cloud computing. We project that SaaS offerings will grow from 7% of total software revenues in 2010 to 17% in 2013.
We definitely want you to know: almost every organisation intends to migrate software to SaaS.
Gartner’s research: “User Survey Analysis: Software as a Service, Enterprise Application and Vertical Software Markets.” Nearly all organisations expect to invest in SaaS, according to a it’s survey.
Researchers found 95% expect to invest significantly in software as a service. The communications (52%), utilities (51%) and banking and securities (49%) industries rank highest with SaaS deployed across the horizontal and vertical-specific categories sampled.
Demand for software as a service remains strong as net-new deployments increase. Gartner’s analysts explore adoption trends and projected use across regions, company size, and enterprise application and vertical software markets.
SoftElegance has several projects of the development ‘Software as a Service‘ platforms for wild range of industries e.g. drilling, retail, manufacturing, and so on.
