for software vendors is no longer about when to include or even shift entirely to SaaS and other Cloud-based solutions. The time is now. The challenge is how to make that happen.
The emergence of the cloud model has resulted in a major metamorphosis in the way ISVs execute their business. While the increasingly wide range of readily-acquired, quickly-deployed solutions has raised the costs of integrating and managing IT, it has also raised users’ expectations as to what is possible.

The costs in money and time to grow, adapt, re-invent, and innovate at such an increasing pace are spiraling beyond the ability of even the largest ISVs.
Accelerated innovation is less of an option and more of a necessity for growth. Fusing core products/technologies with unanticipated technological shifts has redefined the innovation process and has moved it beyond the environs of brick-and-mortar R&D labs.
