10 Predictions for the Future of
SAAS and On-Demand
9. Grid Computing Muddle
Utility computing remains an open question and will be driven by the cost of providing the service. In some cases, you may be able to get your monthly operating costs per user down to a low-enough price that grid computing won't offer enough of a benefit. In other cases, it might provide just the kind of cost advantage that makes it worth the effort. In either case, SAAS vendors should build applications that are "cloud compatible," so that they can take advantage of grid computing when it makes good risk/reward sense.
