Cloudy Language WALL STREET JOURNAL BIZTECH BLOG –“Overuse of the Term 'Cloud Computing' Clouds Meaning of the Tech Buzz Phrase” (September 23, 2008) –“Microsoft Comes up with Yet Another Meaning for ‘Cloud Computing’ ” (October 2, 2008) The “ubiquitous buzzword... that everyone seems to interpret as a different animal.” Forbes According to Gartner, Cloud Computing is “creating a lot of confusion in the market” “There is a clear consensus that there is no real consensus on what cloud computing is.” Irving Wladawsky Berger, Chairman Emeritus – IBM Academy of Technology Page: 2

OK, that's probably more facetious than you wanted to hear. But it really is true – cloud computing means the availability of IT, delivered as a service, from a provider unknown to or unseen by the user. It can be us in house; it can be IBM; it can be SalesForce.com…” Divisional CIO, Top-5 US brokerage / financial services firm “Cloud computing is the outsourcing of IT infrastructure. I see the cloud including SaaS and computing, Storage, etc. I don't know that we would outsource IT management to a cloud provider…” CIO, mid-sized US manufacturing firm (with 7 small subsidiaries) “When I think of “Cloud Computing, I think of it as the ability to dream software solution dreams. I then think of rendering it in a language of my choice. And finally, being able to somehow magically "push" code into the "Internet Cloud", without fore-knowledge or regard for any of the layers underlying my code (DBMS, OS, connectivity or Computer)… The leading vendors are Google, Facebook, Amazon.com, and Salesforce.” CIO, Global Retailer “Cloud Computing is about on-demand infrastructure that can be flexibly deployed based on my computing needs. Longer-term, it is all about building and deploying new apps in the cloud – as we shift the way we deploy IT from internally-managed datacenters to centralized utilities... Amazon and Google are the early compute-focused players, but Cloud Computing will cross the entire ecosystem of providers within a short time…” SVP Fin/HR Apps at Top-5 US Bank Page: 3 Source: Saugatuck Technology

By 2012, Cloud Computing will capture at least twenty five percent of IT spending growth.

Key Findings – Recent Saugatuck SaaS & Cloud Research Saugatuck Insights: Despite the economic meltdown, purchase plans for SaaS and Cloud Computing remain strong in 2009 and for 2010 – across all geographic and customer segments. A new ecosystem is forming around Cloud Computing that will transform the IT sector. This inevitable transformation will result in a multi-level ecosystem, ranging from technology suppliers through Cloud Computing providers to business services providers. While Cloud Computing is emerging (Wave IV), SaaS adoption has clearly moved “beyond the tipping-point” (Waves I-III) – Accelerating “mainstream” adoption of SaaS shifts demand to core business systems, not only among SMBs but also Large Enterprises. Hybrid application architectures emerge – SaaS increasingly linked with on-premise data, applications and processes through Web Services-based Integration APIs. SaaS Analytics, dashboards and BI/performance management tools driving a metrics- based approach to business services. A new SaaS-based business services delivery model is emerging – as onshore and offshore BPO providers are forced to rationalize their one-to-one outsourcing models, reduce costs and bring greater process efficiency to their clients. The most aggressive adopters of SaaS are low-to-midsized SMBs with employees. A small, emerging group of SMBs, labeled by Saugatuck as “The New SMB,” forego traditional IT and immediately establish themselves with SaaS- and cloud-based IT. Cloud Computing, SaaS and Mobility are helping to make the “boundary-free enterprise” a reality. Page: 5 Source: Saugatuck Technology

Post-Crash Business Drivers for SaaS Purchases Page: 7 Saugatuck Insight: Far and away the most important business driver of SaaS solution purchases is Implementation Cost. Given this global survey was taken 8-10 weeks after the start of the economic collapse (in mid-September 2008), it is not surprising to see this result. At the same time, it is interesting to note that buyers rank the relationship with existing channel / implementation partners and brand name vendors at the low-end of business drivers, along with multi-year pricing incentives and billing flexibility. Key Drivers Cost Support Speed Source: Saugatuck Technology Inc., 2009 SaaS Survey (Dec ‘08), N=1788, TOP THREE so results equal more than 100%

These partners compete primarily on price. H Type II: High- Support Focus on delivery of vendor hardware, software and/or hosting services – with heavy reliance on support services, competing primarily based on a high- touch, customer-service value proposition. M Type III: Software Solution & Support Form A: Developer / provider of applications – an ISV. Form B: Services provider who partners with one or more application developers. In each case, the channel partner is packaging additional application software and support along with the vendor‘s hardware, OS, middleware and/or hosting services. These partners compete on the basis of overall solution value.

Chart: 14 Saugatuck Planning Positions (SPPs) By 2013, at least 20 percent of enterprise IT workloads – that historically would have operated on-premise – will be run in the Public Cloud, providing significantly enhanced functionality, lower costs, fewer staff, and reduced carbon footprint. Through YE 2012, Private Cloud deployments by enterprises will equal or exceed enterprise adoption and utilization of Public Cloud infrastructure solutions. By 2013, up to 60 percent of mid-to-large size enterprises will invest in Private Clouds. Cloud-based security and mobility solutions will be broadly accepted in the mainstream and by enterprises of all sizes by Through YE 2009, less than half of enterprises adopting cloud computing will see cost savings of 20 percent or more – especially when considering not just compute resources, but total IT management costs. By 2012, 70 percent or more of all businesses with greater than 100 employees will have deployed at least one SaaS application. By 2012, half the companies considered “Cloud Master Brands" will be pure-play Cloud or SaaS providers; the remaining will be traditional Master Brands who have repurposed and extended their businesses to be relevant in the new IT order. Through 2012, best-of- breed SaaS providers with pre-built integration capabilities enable de facto suites that challenge the market share of pure-play SaaS suites, except for SMBs. By YE 2010, 30 percent or more of SaaS and Open Source start-ups that currently have annual subscription revenues streams of $5 million or less will fail, along with 50 percent or more of those focusing on Enterprise Social Computing. The dual impact of a crippling economy and a changing business model drives significant industry consolidation in the channel – with 20 percent of ISV channel partners and 15 percent of hosting providers ceasing to be viable or acquired by YE Source: Saugatuck Technology
