Gartner: Saas is booming in France and UK
According to a recent Gartner survey called “User Survey Analysis: Usage Plans for SaaS Application Software, France, Germany and the UK 2009”, UK and France are leading the way in Saas adoption. Gartner found 71% of French respondents say their organisation currently uses SaaS for business applications, compared to 68% in the UK and 45% in Germany. Most respondents agreed they choose SaaS primarily because they considered it more cost-effective than an on-premises application. Other reasons given included ease of deployment and internal resource constraints (source: Network World).
