Cloud brokerages and integration hubs will explode
IDC predicts that by 2015, nearly $1 of every $6 spent on packaged software, and $1 of every $5 spent on applications, will be consumed via the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model. So, who handles the integration of all these apps? Cloud service brokerages. And who develops security and auditing around these apps? Who creates B2B links with partners using the same apps? Cloud integration hubs. Startups include Cordys and Informatica.
