The IT Channel Planet reports that Gartner has predicted SaaS revenue within enterprise application software market will jump up 14 percent over 2009, based on convergence with cloud computing models and diminished security and availability concerns among business customers. I heard about this through George Dearing on Twitter.
Three of the growth markets are project and portfolio management (PPM), content, communications and collaboration (CCC), and customer relationship management (CRM). These are all areas I continue to cover on this blog and the AppGap as they are key aspects of enterprise 2.0. It is encouraging to see these numbers,
It is interesting to note that the collaboration market exhibits the most noticeably disproportionate SaaS adoption rates range from 4 percent for enterprise content management to 82 percent for web conferencing. However, I have seen that most collaboration platform vendors are offering a SaaS option. I think this will continue to grow.
