Silicon Valley & BuzzWord

The Silicon Valley & buzzwords are like 2 rails in the rail road- inseparable! It keeps the train(business) running... & there is a reason to it.

The buzzword brings energy & enthusiasm. Then, this creates the bubble. The bubble brings the opportunity. The opportunity brings $ home!

This cycle repeats again & again! Valley never tired of creating this cycle...

If you think, Web2.0, Web3.0 or SaaS is the latest buzzword, sorry, you are 6 months outdated. The new buzzword is "Cloud Computing".

Rest of nation & rest of the world is now worried so much about the US economic recession, but NOT Valley. Unlike last time, where valley got hit badly, this time the energy level seems to be very high even in the midst of this recession- thanks to Cloud Computing!

SaaSCon 2008

I am attending SaaSCon 2008 conference here in Santa Clara, CA. If you are attending this event and want to let you know that , I am open for networking... drop me an email or make a comment here.

I attended this event and it was a successful conference. I see a significant uptake in no of attendees, vendors and customer participation in the conference. Unlike typical tech conferences focusing on vendors, this was mostly towards the customers of SaaS.

Many CIO's participated in the conference and everyone of them confirmed that SaaS is the future for their IT needs. Infact one CIO mentioned that it was all internal apps in 2002 to all external(SaaS) apps now in 2008.

There is a big shift happening inside the enterprise, by moving the non-core apps to SaaS. There were even talk about SaaS1.0, SaaS2.0 and cloud computing.

All I can say is that now even transaction oriented apps are evolving in Web on top of the consumer focused apps. Web is the next Radio for humans!
