Why Choose a Cloud Based Software Solution?

Gartner predicts that the bulk of new IT spending by 2016 will be for cloud computing platforms and applications with nearly half of large enterprises having cloud deployments by the end of 2017.

Boston Consulting Group writes that SaaS is a $15B market, growing at three times that rate of traditional software. BCG estimates that SaaS is 12% of global spending on IT applications. BCG interviewed 80 CIOs and found they were willing to consider SaaS solutions for 35% to 60% of their application spending.

Like the industry analysts, we are convinced that the vast majority of business software will be delivered via the cloud in the next few years.  Based on that belief, Thrive Technologies has become the leader in providing cloud demand forecasting software as a cloud based service.
