From SaaS to PaaS

Courtesy of Computer Business Review Online (also ASPnews.com), I read that on-demand vendor Salesforce.com‘s latest release will see its business platform evolve from software-as-a-service to platform-as-a-service, a step that will apparently “antagonize and incentivize big league players Microsoft, SAP, and Oracle”.

ASPnews.com also reports – see Software Plus Services Spurs Rapid Growth at Microsoft – that Microsoft is already gearing up to respond to the anticipated on-demand boom by building new data centres and software development complexes to support its Software-plus-Services strategy.
