With all of the changes and shifts in technology, has it become software as you knew it, or software as you know it? Software as a service (SaaS) tools are gaining ground against on-premise software requiring a perpetual license, according to a recent Forrester report. This report shows that SaaS budgets rose by 53 percent, while the budgets for on-premise applications dropped by 13 percent. This trend continues to accelerate, as shown by the rapidly expanding SaaS market. For example, a report in Forbes predicted that the SaaS market would reach $12 billion by the end of 2016 and $55 billion within the next 10 years. On-premise software won’t go away anytime soon, but it’s clear your SaaS budget will eventually surpass your on-premise budget.
