Cloud Computing: China to lead SaaS adoption!

The Global Shift is happening. SaaS, Cloud Computing and novo infrastructures and requirements are going to come from emerging markets. We all knew it and the more I see it happening, and the more I have spoken to my C-level friends and have been saying it all the time: "invest in Asia, if you want to survive the next revolution", I am convinced that some of them might be just a bit too late now. But I did warn them in time. Do you want to know where you must already be looking at now? Africa and S. America! I have been spending a lot of time lately in several countries such as Ghana, Uganda etc and see a slow revolution starting up. I will be traveling to Uganda again in October/November.

Anyways, here's the research that Forrester did:

SaaS is a priority for 74% of Chinese firms, the research found, with 29% planning to pilot SaaS projects in the next 12 months. In Europe, the majority of organisations are interested but have no plans to pursue SaaS, while in the US, adoption is at its highest but many companies are not even considering moving over.

Content management was the application that Chinese organisations are most likely to adopt on a SaaS basis followed by collaboration software, human capital management tools and enterprise resource planning applications.
