Time To Get SaaS-y
this weekend that Microsoft is set to make a major Software as a Service (SaaS)
announcement soon, perhaps detailing how nearly its entire portfolio of apps
-- from ERP to Office -- will adapt to the Web.
The company may also detail plans to build a bunch of huge new datacenters,
an announcement that seems geared toward Wall Street as much as IT.
And, in fact, it appears today that the rumors might be starting to come true:
Microsoft this morning announced a new step forward for its SaaS initiative,
Online Services, with online betas of Exchange and SharePoint Servers.
Are you using SaaS? If so, for what and how is it working out? If not, what
would it take for you to make the move? Write me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
