Winds of Change Will Catalyze Big Shift to SaaS and Virtualization

Struggling economies bring challenges, but also opportunities. The IT world is ripe for a major shift, for three reasons:

  • Economic concerns are driving IT departments to aggressively increase efficiency and reduce cost.
  • Vendors have built vast SaaS infrastructures to enable outsourced messaging, collaboration, applications, and compliance solutions at a fixed cost (examples: Microsoft, Google, IBM, Amazon, Iron Mountain, LiveOffice).
  • Server virtualization technologies -- from Microsoft, Sun, VMWare, and in Linux distributions -- have matured to the point where highly available, high-volume, and complex applications can be efficiently virtualized, at a savings of cost, space, administrative overhead, and energy consumption.

The state of the economy will have a catalytic effect on customer adoption of and migration to SaaS and virtual environments over the coming two years. Within the next three to five years, hosters will start using a combination of multitenancy and virtualization, to offer an always-on, always-available set of solutions to customers over the Internet.

Thus the state of the economy will greatly encourage customers to migrate to SaaS/cloud and virtual environments. ... David Sengupta, with Richi Jennings
