That's what enterprise IT managers said in a recent survey according to IDC, when the analyst firm polled them about their plans for on demand and outsourcing.
The outcome is surprising because Google currently doesn’t host any application for enterprises, and to my knowledge doesn't have any plans to do so either.
The outcome is even more surprising because
85 per cent of the enterprise IT managers named Google, followed by Yahoo and
Amazon. But before Salesforce.com, broadband provider Comcast and Microsoft.
The outcome was so surprising that IDC analyst David Tapper decided to write a separate analysis about it that's due out next week.
What this shows is that enterprises are looking for
someone who has a great track record with providing application up time and
who knows how to build a scalable system.
Both Amazon, Yahoo and Google have
proven this. Salesforce.com might have a good track record in CRM but has yet
to prove itself outside that space. Besides, its CEO Marc Benioff can be a bit
creepy sometimes (wouldn't it be nice if he had an off button...?).
