This post is part of a Penton Technology Channel Group special report on Software-as-a-Service.
While vendors like Salesforce and Workday are behind some of the more well-known software as a service (SaaS) solutions, they represent just a fraction of the cloud-based software available today. In fact, according to a recent report by BetterBuys, new SaaS offerings and startups are rising at a rate of more than 1,400 over the last five years among various sectors. The global software as a service market was estimated at $34.78 billion in 2015.
In its recent State of SaaS report, which analyzes the U.S. SaaS market, BetterBuys found that the majority of SaaS market share is held by “other” vendors (57 percent), while Salesforce, Microsoft, Adobe and SAP make up the rest of the top five SaaS vendors, by market share.
With that in mind, who are some of the SaaS startups that you should be watching in 2016? Talkin’ Cloud has rounded up 7 SaaS startups who are disrupting the way companies recruit new talent, provide customer service, and manage their spending – all without unwrapping a box of software.
