SaaS moving from the edge to the core

Goldman Sachs IT spending survey our yesterday

i feel these kinds of surveys are a real important indicator of what is going one

the latest one by GS suggest that

  • Ongoing spending improvement
  • Normal seasonality expected in Q1
  • Pent-up demand for staffing, IT services strengthens – hardware remains in the top spot;
  • Survey highlights PC refresh, SaaS adoption – coming corporate PC refresh in 2H2010

for us SaaS lovers, please note:

of respondents:

24% are into SaaS

23% are agnostice

34% are not in favor of Saas

19% unwilling to consider Saas

considering the fact that SaaS started with SMBs, and that SaaS applications started in the “edge” or “shallow” in the organization, these are VERY encouraging statistics. “Core” SaaS apps such as accounting and billing are now ‘legit’

cloudy today, shiny tomorrow
