General availability of both the Exchange and SharePoint hosted services is planned for the second half of 2008. The new online services will let end users access services like e-mail, calendaring, and Web conferencing at subscription prices. This will only be offered to companies who are already deploying the Microsoft products with an on premise licensing model.
Microsoft CRM 4 is now offering a multi tenancy model and through partners you can have Microsoft Dynamics ERP solutions hosted.
Microsoft normally announces a new service at their annual Microsoft Convergence conference in the US which will be in Orlando from the 11th to 14th of march, maybe they will have a announcement that you can have their ERP software packages (Microsoft Dynamics AX,GP,Nav and SL) as SaaS delivery model direct from Microsoft.
Microsoft’s competition from online documents (Google docs, ZOHO), hosted CRM (Sales force) and hosted ERP (Netsuite, SAP business by design) will force them eventually to offer all their software packages as an on demand business model if the consumer/customer wants it.
What do you think Microsoft will announce at MS Convergence Orlando?
