Hummer Winblad Principal Speaking Next Week at SYS-CON's Cloud Computing Expo November 19-21 in Silicon Valley

Lars Leckie's Blog In a recent report, Gartner made some bold predictions around the near-term future of SaaS. In essence they are endorsing that the SaaS model has increasing leverage over existing software models as the IT spending tightens: Worldwide software-as-a-service revenue in the enterprise application market is on pace to surpass 2007 sales by 27% and to more than double by 2012, a market research firm said Wednesday. Revenue this year is on track to rise above $6.4 billion, compared with $5.1 billion last year, Gartner said. In four years, revenue is expected to reach $14.8 billion. (from Antone Gonsalvez at InformationWeek) While it is always a little dangerous to follow predictions from analysts when considering your specific market or application, this announcement is an interesting one given the current economic conditions. We share this premise at Hummer... (more)

One answer, he says, lies in reducing total-cost-of-ownership (TCO) over corporate-owned desktops and laptops. "Gartner reports that the five-year TCO of corporate... (more)

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
