    At the moment I think Google Apps and Zoho are disruptive technologies just below user requirements, on the verge of massive adoption.

    The situation is the same as the switch from mainframe computers to desktops. Most people didn’t focus on the benefits, but we’re scared of the drawbacks. They weren’t focusing on what is important. This is exactly the situation today with SaaS vs. Hosted.

    Actually the SaaS technologies probably fulfill the requirements of business users. However, the perception of the technologies is that they don’t fulfill the requirements. People set their requirements too high: “Of course we need all the advanced tools of MS Word… (which you don’t even know how to use)” and they don’t know what new solutions are capable of (for example, Google docs + Panorama for analytics).
