For awhile now I’ve been thinking of creating more of a platform for analysis and commentary about SaaS. Diversity has two specific arms – consultancy and commentary – both of these arms are bigger than any one person and so building a community of contributors seemed a logical progression to make.

To that end I have invited TheUnreasonablemen to become an author on the Diversity blog. The Unreasonablemen, in their own words;

Have spent the last 5 years working on the convergence of IT and T. They’ve held roles in strategy, marketing, sales and new product development for the largest hosted service provider in New Zealand. As such they’ve been a very early leader in utility computing, embraced SOA before it was even called that and been cogitating a lot on the new trends we see in IT, how disruption occurs, how incumbents react, structure themselves and address disruption and innovation.

They’ve also been closely watching the Web 2.0 phenomenon, SaaS and other service provider models.

I’m really looking forward to seeing what The UM come up with and inviting more dialogue from others onto this site – if you’re a SaaS specialist with something to share the world drop us a line – we’d love to have you onboard!
