    Pivot to the Cloud

    Using the cloud to deliver software applications – commonly known as software as a service or SaaS – continues to draw interest from organizations that buy and use enterprise applications, as well as from vendors. For buyers, SaaS means lower infrastructure costs, more rapid deployment, and losing the burden of managing, updating and patching applications.

    For software vendors, organizations moving to established cloud services means they can deliver applications faster and not wait on prolonged infrastructure improvements and deployment cycles. SaaS apps also make it easier for vendors to win additional revenue since it's easier to deliver product upgrades and/or increase the number of licenses.

While businesses have been slower to move enterprise apps to the cloud (only a third are currently using cloud-based enterprise apps), it's not due to a lack of wanting. The survey found that major industries, such as health care, finance and government, have ambitious plans to migrate their enterprise apps to the cloud in the coming years.
