get your saas in gear

A while back I posted some thoughts on the technical challenges of organic growth that generated some good discussion. At that time, I was looking at organic technical growth vs growth through acquisition. But there’s another angle to this, which is SaaS (Software as a Service).

Bob Warfield has a really interesting post that details some of the same challenges I listed (which just about anyone who’s been in software for more than 5 years can list), but for him acquisitions aren’t the answer as they only delay the problem. For him, the answer is SaaS.

SaaS does provide quite an appealing model, but I have to believe that the “Law of Unintended Consequences” is going to provide us some real fun with SaaS at some point in the future. Is it the next best thing? Sure seems like it. But I wonder how long before multi-tenant applications get too limiting in ways we maybe cannot see today?
