Official Name For Hosted Software?
Having completed three hosted CRM software selections and implementations I thought I had this new software delivery model pretty well understood. However, after reading a number of vendor articles and web sites I now recognize I'm not even certain of the official name for hosted software. My confusion stems from the following vendor phrases:
Software as a Service (Gartner, Forrester, SAP, Aplicor)
Services as Software (NetSuite)
Software Plus Services (Microsoft)
Platform as a Service (Salesforce.com)
Maybe the catch phrase is immaterial, however, the anal side of me wants to know and use the best and most recognized name. If anybody has any authoritative references, independent citations or background information on this intriguing question please let me know. Thanks.
