This article discusses recent trends including an expanded focus on software as a service (SaaS) as well as the introduction of increasingly robust mobile offerings. It details how SaaS or web-based software is hosted in a data center by a software vendor, which results in a lower up-front cost. In addition, the article cites three different ways to approach an estimating software package: industry-focused, properly sized, and carefully evaluated. Accompanying the article is a sidebar identifying ways estimating software may fit your industry.
