Mid Market e-Sourcing

I read a short article recently from Line 56 that stated, “Nearly 50% of smaller companies will consider the hosted option when making software purchases.” It also brings attention to the explosive growth that is expected in mid market for hosted applications such as e-Sourcing. Although mostly referring to 2005 predictions, I think it is reasonable to expect 2006 to be the “Year of the SMB” in e-Sourcing and Aberdeen has recently concurred with this assessment.

We have seen a huge upswing in both interest in e-Sourcing and willingness to adopt a new methodology from companies in this sector (under $1b in sales) and I believe the migration of smaller corporations into this technology will increase this year with previously unmatched speed.

Still quiet here.sas
