Cloud computing is transforming all types of software businesses, but the changes are playing out differently by industry – video games included. In enterprise software, which yours truly covers for Gartner, the change is most visible in software-as-a-service (SaaS) businesses like Salesforce.com. Small- and medium-sized companies are all jumping onto the SaaS bandwagon, because it lets them have access to capabilities that previously required expensive software from companies like Oracle and SAP. In a sense, SaaS levels the playing field for small businesses (e.g. game developers, publishers and more), putting them on near-equal footing with giant billion-dollar-plus companies, at least where IT is concerned.
