There is NO Next Salesforce.com

Filed under: Data Integration — Alena Semeshko @ 3:50 am

One of the discussions at the Always On Summit at Stanford was called on ‘Will the Next Salesforce.com Please Stand Up?’. The name already speaks for itself, the crporate world is desperate to see something new and groundbreaking, a business solution of the next generation. But what’s the point of moving on to something new, or, for that matter, even looking into something new, if you haven’t taken the best out of what’s already there?

During the discussion, Managing Director Lisa Lambert from Intel Capital said she still finds the broad acceptance of SaaS reasonable.

“I think the real reason is fundamentally that the value proposition really appeals to small businesses. At the end of the day small businesses were excluded from enterprise software … fundamentally, SaaS answered that question. It made a lot more sense for small businesses to buy software as a service.”
