The benefit of using SaaS is that the software is centrally hosted by service providers and as such, enterprises don't need to invest in hardware. According to International Data Corporation (IDC), Eric Newmark, program Vice President for IDC's SaaS, Enterprise Applications, and Industry Cloud research practices, said, "Many companies have picked the low-hanging fruit, in terms of apps that could be easily moved to the cloud, and are now evaluating the migration of their next set of larger strategic systems (i.e. ERP, supply chain applications, etc.) to a SaaS model. These projects, coupled with companies' efforts to embrace digital transformation, will continue to fuel strong SaaS growth."
