SaaS Aggregators

Amy Wohl writes her last column in the series on SaaS titled,"Succeding With Software-As-A-Service". Rajesh Jain introduced her columns to me. Her columns were always a good read – written in simple language. Most of the times, I used to think that she was attaching exaggerated importance to SaaS – nonetheless, her columns used to remain a good read. In here last column she makes predictions about the growth and shape that the SaaS market may experience in the next 3-5 years. Amongst her predictions :

1) SaaS will increasingly look like a great solution for commodity problems like Email, for companies of any size.

2) Large traditional software players to seriously offer SaaS-based alternatives to their traditional software offerings & urges the need for a full-function alternatives rather than Microsoft's recent foray into on-line services, offering incremental services to Office users, but still requiring the customer to install Office on every workstation and multiple Microsoft servers within the firewall.
She also predicts the arrival of SaaS service aggregators ( extension of service like ondemand apps) who pull together multiple SaaS offerings and make all of them appear within a portal - yours or theirs - together with anything else you'd like to see there, all at a single per person per month fee. None of these expectations are new – but a sense of realism that this may take 3-5 years in noteworthy. Lets continue to read her personal weblog.
