Google CEO Says Software to Play a Bigger Role

“Let me just say it: We want native third-party applications on the iPhone, and we plan to have an SDK in developers' hands in February” - Steve Jobs

"Ajax and Web 2.0 are great technologies for casual use, but for mission critical you need the capabilities of a desktop app." Greg Gianforte, CEO ,RightNow

Thought Leadership

"It's unlikely than an organization will strictly choose one path or the other when it comes to SaaS and software services that are built in-house. Every organization will likely continue to have a mix of existing applications, SaaS subscriptions, and now through SOA, a collection of reusable components, Web services and business processes," said Sandy Carter, vice president of SOA and WebSphere strategy at IBM 

“But Google's offline approach also is a recognition that Microsoft's right in insisting that not all computing will take place in the Internet cloud. Microsoft's been touting a vision of "software plus services" that relies on Internet-connected desktop apps, and more enterprise software-as-a-service companies, such as CRM vendor RightNow, recognize the need for some client software.”
