SaaS is not interesting for 44% of companies

March 28, 2008

As Nick and I were lurking around the web for interesting articles on open innovation I ran across a post about SaaS called “Total economic impact of Software-as-a-Service: The foundation of a sound technology investment“:

As firms look to focus on core business processes, software-as-a-service (SaaS) provides an increasingly attractive alternative. Companies of all sizes are weighing advantages of SaaS which has emerged as an important deployment option in customer relationship management (CRM) but is also eliciting interest in other areas such as enterprise resource planning (ERP), security or backup just to name a few.

Total economic impact of Software-as-a-Service

What really blows me away is that 44% of people were not interested in SaaS. I really just wonder if they are not interested, or don’t know what it is – or maybe they are nervous about the idea of cloud computing?

It just becomes more interesting as we begin to design and built an innovation platform, with plans to leverage a SaaS model.
