Over and Over again this subject is brought to the table thi makes me observe that that ISVs spend alot of efforts on conversion of their application to Multi-tenancy level 1 / level 2 (Check I Am OnDemand Terminology page).
I think that this fact teaches us that SaaS hype is here to stay and that the world of application consuming is rapidly changes now more than ever. As I mentioned on past posts I strongly believes that analysts will be suprised to find that a lot of ISVs will be ready to deliver “real” SaaS by the end of this year include full Multi-tenancy, new PaaSs and new web applications that were converted from on-premise will be introduce to IT consumers. ISVs that didn’t “wake up” already can find themselves outside of the game.
