SaaS Passes the Sniff Test

When it comes to desert, the proof is in the pudding. When it comes to IT products and services, the proof is in what sells. And right now SaaS is selling.

And if Gartner is to be believed (and this is one of the rare cases where I believe them) SaaS will keep right on selling.

Garter researchers found that 77% of companies surveyed will increase spending on SaaS. That means they like it, they really like it.

SaaS clearly can't perform as well as on-premises, but there is no infrastructure to worry about -- just buy it and go!

Once you're sold on SaaS, platform-as-a-service (PaaS) might make sense. Here your developers just worry about developing -- not servers, operating systems, scaling and the rest. And some PaaS services boast visual development environments that need no coding. Your folks, IT or business people, can define what they need and the software almost builds itself!
