Gartner report isnt very clear, but what they mean is that ussing OSS in house -databases whatever, will be innefficent compared to outsourcing to Google or whomever, whose OSS SaaS will be massifed and cheap for a their subscribers.

isn'td good to listen software as a service (SaaS) will eclipse open source as the preferred enterprise IT cost cutting method.

Gans, While it's certainly true what you're saying, the claim is that SaaS will eclipse open source in cost saving. My point is: how can SaaS eclipse open source in cost saving when SaaS is almost always built on open source? So, if you're using SaaS offerings you're almost certainly using open source.

Aaron, On your following comment... "Final point. By 2012, software as a service (SaaS) will eclipse open source as the preferred enterprise IT cost cutting method. What? This is a clear demonstration of Gartner’s (typical) lack of understanding of the trend they’re analyzing. Open source is a software development model. SaaS is a software delivery mechanism. If you don’t understand this you shouldn’t be writing a report on open source, SaaS, or even software for that matter. " I have not see Gartner's research note yet. But it makes perfect sense. I agree SaaS is a s/w delivery mechanism. But from enterprise IT perspective, adopting open source or SaaS, they have to make business sense in terms of TCO/ROI.... and the driver for the increasing adoption of either of these paradigms is primarily driven by the value and cost. So, from "as IT cutting method" perspective, it makes total SENSE.

[...] All Your Software Are Belong To Us “This report simply misses the mark. It’s watered down and mostly wrong, but has a ring of truthiness to it. Gartner realizes that open source is increasingly dominating, but fails to recognize by how much and how quickly.” — Who watches the watchmen?
