Democratization of Enterprise Software

I’ve been reading everyone’s prognostications for 2011 around Cloud Computing and want to weigh in.  I think an area most are missing is the democratization of Enterprise Software for the Small & Medium sized businesses worldwide.  Think about it, commodity level pricing for software that runs my business, but at a level I can afford.  Everything the largest and strongest companies use to deliver efficiency and heightened proficiency.

Changes in the Game

This opens up a whole new world of efficacy, efficiency and process standardization to the small & medium business owner not previously available.  They can now use the same software and methodologies as the large businesses use to track their supply chain, manage human resources and deliver sales excellence through the use of customer resource management.

Who Wins

Most SaaS business models include a free level meant as a loss-leader, but are golden opportunity for the small business owner.  Bottom line, this provides the small business owner a potentially huge market advantage and they effectively leap-frog their competitors if they can execute quickly and nimbly.
