"Large companies appear to be jumping en masse onto the
software-as-a-service bandwagon, according to a new survey of CIOs by
management consultants McKinsey & Company. The survey found that
61% of North American companies with sales over $1 billion plan to
adopt one or more SaaS applications over the next year, a dramatic
increase from the 38% who were planning to install SaaS apps in 2005."
Talent management, a subset of human capital management (HCM), is already experience such robustness. According to a study we did earlier this year, we estimated that over 65% of new talent management deployments in 2005 occurred in a SaaS model.
