It would be impossible to provide that value without the ability to deliver our Performance Management applications as a service.”

“There is no doubt the growing market opportunity for SaaS will continue to outpace the broader software industry growth rates,” said Swayne Hill, CEO of Cloud9 Analytics. ”While this growth is driven by a new class of buyer in the lines of business, we’re seeing an increasing number of IT organizations getting behind the trend.
