More on IBM and SaaS

Just bookmarking this post wouldn’t pull the relevant quote from it enough, so here’s a whole post pointing to Ric’s anecdote about trying to get SaaS from the IBM ecosystem:

[B]ut my next question was “does IBM offer [RequisitePro] as a SaaS product?” – i.e. could I “rent” Web access to it for the duration of the project?

After the channel partner had recovered from his laughing fit, he explained that IBM is a bit sensitive about cutting its channel partners out of the loop. OK, I buy that, so “will they let you provide it as SaaS?”

The answer: “nobody I speak to at IBM seems to think that way”

Disclaimer: IBM is a client.
