Is the traditional method for deploying software on its way to extinction ?

Filed under: SAAS,Technology,Web 2.0 Apps — janats @ 8:07 pm

Hosted software, deployed over the Internet, is fast becoming less of a niche market for CRM vendors but a full blown IPO inspiring success story.

The latest entry into the growing Software-as-a-Service market may yet be the most significant…we are talking about Google of course. It seems to have made its most significant effort to date to extend its reach beyond its core search business and has created a portfolio of office tools that include email, calendar, communication and day-to-day productivity applications.

True, its original set of applications may seem to be aimed at small business, but you can count on them morphing into full blown enterprise offerings. Imagine that…full blown productivity suites that can be use by corporate users without needing to be deployed or maintained or indeed, updated – Microsoft may well shudder…

Google is obviously not the first to enter wholesale into the SAAS mode, but it may yet be the most significant..
