The Ponderings of Woodrow blog talks about an upcoming report based on a McKinsey survey of CIOs that reports that usage of SaaS is on the rise in large enterprises. The survey found that 61% of North American companies with sales greater than $1 billion dollars plan to adopt one or more SaaS applications over the next year (2006) compared to 38% in 2005. The Ponderings of Woodrow blog points out some potential issues with the survey. However, for anyone in the HR world, this is not particularly new news. Large enterprises have been readily adopting SaaS applications for e-recruitment and employee performance management many years. Maybe CIOs have not been in the loop on these purchases? However, anything the dispels the myth that SaaS solutions are only for the SMB market is probably a good thing.
