73% of enterprises will run almost entirely on SaaS by 2020
Some 38% of companies have already moved most of their apps to SaaS, according to a new survey from BetterCloud.
Enterprises are rapidly shifting to Software as a Service (SaaS), with the industry poised to generate more than $112.8 billion in revenue by 2019, according to IDC. Enterprises now use 16 SaaS apps on average—up 33% from last year, according to a new report from BetterCloud. And 73% of organizations said nearly all of their apps (more than 80%) will be SaaS by 2020.

BetterCloud—which, it should be noted, provides SaaS management software—surveyed more than 1,800 IT professionals for their report. Some 38% of tech workers said their company is already running almost entirely on SaaS, and that they run 2.1x more SaaS apps than the average organization, the survey found.

Tech professionals from these SaaS-focused companies are 52% more likely to say that the delivery model helps them attract better talent than the average workplace, BetterCloud found. They are also 31% more likely to say SaaS improves employee satisfaction.
