    I said at the time (in the long forum thread that AccountingWeb linked to) that I thought Michael Jackson was very serious about SaaS and not just dipping his toe in as others had suggested.

    I think the fact it’s taken his outfit so long to get to this stage fully justifies my comments about moving quickly.

    In the time that’s since passed, SaaS has become the hottest thing since McDonalds Apple Pies and a global recession has got into full swing affecting virtually everying except SaaS in a negative way.

    It’s certainly a very interesting time to be involved in SaaS – whether that’s accounting or other areas.

    A minor point but according to shareholder stats provided on their website, Michael Jackson purchased an 11% stake in Access Intelligence rather than the entire company.
