Buddy Kaila pointed out this editorial from Forbes magazine.
The basic premise is that in the soon-to-eventuate recession, SaaS companies will be somewhat protected from the fall out. The reasons given;
- SaaS is an expensable rather than capital outlay
- SaaS tends to be used in discrete, mission-critical areas
- SaaS providers tend to have more exposure to the SMB market
- SaaS players can scale back their expenditure more readily than ISVs
Roll on that recession…..
