“the demand for businesses to be more agile to meet organizations’ demands and stay competitive is driving a change in the way applications are developed, deployed and adopted. The need for flexibility, scale, and ease of deployment and use is driving adoption of SaaS to support mobile enterprise strategies”.
“The SaaS industry is an unstoppable train that can only move forward; as more players come into the picture, competition will heat up to boiling levels. In order to stay competitive, many SaaS vendors have built ecosystems or communities which serve to streamline shopping and selection on the front-end, and integration on the backend, so that more companies can use SaaS solutions in an incremental, yet integrated manner. Small and medium sized businesses are leading the leap to the cloud as they look for applications that will enable their business to scale for rapid growth and to reduce the need for internal IT resources”, added Andrew Brown, Executive Director of Enterprise Research at Strategy Analytics.
