HP Moves to SaaS

Hewlett-Packard is an interesting and often underrated software player. And with so much software and so many server platforms, the company has long been helping IT organizations look at their infrastructures from top to bottom and devise a plan to make them more efficient (similar to Microsoft's three-year-old Infrastructure Optimization model).

Now, HP is moving parts of its Business Technology Optimization products to a services model. This way, if you want to optimize through new HP products -- but don't want to buy and manage a bunch of new services -- you can simply order up some services.

What about you? Is SaaS in your current or future plans? Why or why not? Tell us all by writing me at [email protected].

Here's HP's take on optimization.
