According to a recent survey of CIOs by management consultants McKinsey and company, 61% of North American companies with sales over $1 billion plan to adopt one or more SaaS (software as a service) applications over the next year, a dramatic increase from the 38% who were planning to install SaaS apps in 2005. Some of the factors driving the increase in adoption are lower up-front costs, lower total ownership costs and caster implementation that traditional licensed software - all of which can lead to a more attractive return on investment. The most popular SaaS business applications are for human resource management, billing and order entry and sales management (these were also the most popular in 2005).
