Access Markets International Partners reported earlier this week that small business adoption of CRM solutions will rise in 2010. Rackspace reported that CRM isn't the only SaaS market to see a boost in 2010.

SaaS in general will help small businesses adopt the newest technology without spending too greatly to do so. Small businesses that adopted SaaS earlier have praised the service as a means of saving money and improving their businesses' capability.

"Software-as-a-Service solutions are particularly well suited to workers on the go since they're easy to use offsite across diverse platforms such as notebooks, netbooks, smartphones from anywhere and even PCs," Neha Jalan, an associate at AMI, told the news provider.

"Subscription-based apps seamlessly accessed have the potential to change how companies view the software applications market - so much so that the currently projected growth may prove to be conservative after all," she continued.

Microsoft is one company targeting small businesses with its cloud offerings. The company believes that only 10 percent of small businesses in the U.S. have up-to-date IT systems, so offering them SaaS applications that can bring their businesses forward provides an inexpensive way to improve their IT capabilities.ADNFCR-2553-ID-19750535-ADNFCR
