Hi Heather,

You are correct, SaaS solutions are fragmented and small business user needs are very diverse.

I believe that we will see three trends that will address this concern as the market is maturing:

1) Solutions to integrate processes at the applications and data levels

2) Development of packages that include a mix of bets of breed applications with the objective of serving very specific industry needs ( for dentists, lawyers...)

3) Emergence of fully integrated suites for SMBs. Solutions such as NetSuite, BrightPearl, Zoho or WorkETC are already seeing a lot of success at doing this

How do you see the market evolving?

Hi GetApp,

This list pretty much reinforces the impression I've had, that cloud computing, at least for SMBs and small businesses will involve a few services here and a few services there instead of a complete immersion. Part of it may have to do with the numbers of providers who have different specialties, part with the very diverse needs of the small business community.
