One response to “Hey SaaS Experts: What’s Your Cloud Computing IQ?”

    This is a very insightful article. What you describe has a strong analogy with what happened in “regular” computing in the 1990s where people stopped developing top-to-bottom applications themselves and started buying 3rd party components such as operating systems, databases, GUI frameworks, etc in order to gain productivity. Providers of these components also gained productivity because they were able to amortize their research & development over more applications and customers. This article says that the same should happen with web apps and cloud apps.
