Last week in New York, at a special conference on SaaS conducted by IDC, I had the pleasure of talking to two top analysts about where we are with SaaS, why it makes more sense now than ever, and what are the differences between SaaS and its ethereal cousin. Michael Fauscette is Group Vice President, Software Business Solutions for IDC and is responsible for looking at large enterprise software strategy; research Director Robert Mahowald directs research and consulting in the areas of on-demand computing and SaaS for IDC. Oracle was the sponsor of the event (and as you may know also sponsors TheCustomerCollective) and many thanks to Brenda Collins for putting me together with a couple of very bright guys. Hope you enjoy the show. (You can connect directly with Michael at SocialMediaToday where he has just joined our featured bloggers.)
Enjoy these interviews!
