Dennis Howlett blogged today that Sage may never get SaaS. Ultimately he offered the same proposed solution as I did back in May: that they should spin off a new company – seperate from the current management – specifically to work on the SaaS problems they face.
What I loved about the post though was the delicious irony of it all.
Sage buy software firms that have a good customer base but are essentially old, tired and over the hill with declining organic growth.
From Dennis’s analysis, Sage have become what they have acquired – old, tired and over the hill with declining organic growth.
With that in mind, I’ve devised them a new name and logo (above) which they’re welcome to use.
