Gartner Says Worldwide Software-as-a-Service Revenue to Reach $14.5 Billion in 2012

According to a recently released research report by Gartner, the SaaS industry is set to reach about $14.5 billion worldwide this year.

After more than a decade of use, adoption of SaaS continues to grow and evolve regionally within the enterprise application markets,” said Sharon Mertz, research director at Gartner. “Increasing familiarity with the SaaS model, continued oversight on IT budgets, the growth of platform as a service (PaaS) developer communities and interest in cloud computing are now driving adoption forward.”

Hirebridge has exclusively been providing its software as a hosted solution since the company’s inception in 2000 and has experienced  explosive  growth over the past three years.

Why Talent Management Tech is Super Hot and Bound to Get Hotter

Tell us something we don’t already know!

Marshall Kilpatric’s addresses one of the hottest sectors of the software industry, namely, Talent Management. Hirebridge has been in this space for more than a decade and we’ve experienced explosive growth over the past 2-3 years, so we know just how hot it truly is.

Here’s an excellent quote from the article:

“We don’t have the right skills in the open market to fill the available jobs. The War for Skills is even more deadly than a war for talent because the only place to get the skills is from the competition. We now, more than ever, need to know what we have from a talent standpoint, what our competitors have, what we need and what it will cost to get it. The Knowledge Economy has finally caught up to the Manufacturing Economy in the need for Supply Chain Intelligence, just not of parts but of people and skills.” ~ Jason Averbook, CEO of Knowledge Infusion

Hirebridge is a key component to helping companies decipher the best talent from their applicant inflows and aids recruiters in their abilities to streamline the entire hiring process.

Gartner Reveals Top Predictions for IT Organizations and Users for 2011 and Beyond

Via Gartner …

By 2015, 20 percent of non-IT Global 500 companies will be cloud service providers. The move by non-IT organizations to provide non-IT capabilities via cloud computing will further expand the role of IT decision making outside the IT organization. This represents yet another opportunity for IT organizations to redefine their value proposition as service enablers — with either consumption or provision of cloud-based services. As non-IT players externalize core competencies via the cloud, they will be interjecting themselves into value chain systems and competing directly with IT organizations that have traditionally served in this capacity.

How Cloud Computing Can Help A Small Business Get Out of the Recession

Via Read Write Web …

Cloud computing creates enough disruptions for small businesses that it seems almost folly when we hear some of the stories we do.

We heard one story about an IT department that said that the company could not afford to have more people accessing the Internet. Yes, the Internet is too expensive for small business. Maybe it’s time to scrap the dial up?

Why You Need A SaaS Strategy

Via InformationWeek …

Business technology leaders find themselves in something of a cloud computing deluge, showered by vendor marketing, new services, and even CEO questions about their “cloud strategy.” Much of the exuberance centers on the kind of computing-by-the-hour service that Amazon.com and others sell but most enterprises are only starting to ponder.

Amid the lofty aspirations, few have noticed just how powerful and grounded a force software as a service has become. The impact that SaaS will have on IT organizations is profound, and as business technology leaders, we need to ensure that our companies are ready for it.
