Gartner Predicts SaaS Growth

From the 10-02-06 edition of eWeek:

A Gartner report predicts that software as a service, which accounted for only 5% of all business software spending last year, will grab 25% by 2011.

A limited ability to tailor on-demand apps is often seen as the Achilles’ heel of software as a service.

While some see on-demand applications appealing more to smaller companies, Gartner says there’s no reason business of all sizes can’t use them, if only for departmental initiatives that augment on-premises software.
