Global SaaS/cloud software sales will rise a solid 25% this year to $59B, and another 25% in 2014 to $74B, predicts Forrester. The research firm also sees corporate adoption of Apple (AAPL) hardware continuing to grow: it expects Mac/iPad sales to businesses growing to $18B in 2013 from $15B in $2012. Forrester's original forecast for 2012 corporate Mac/iPad sales proved aggressive. Needham (citing Gartner data) has estimated Mac sales to U.S. businesses rose 49% Y/Y in Q3.

    This augurs well for cloud SaaS vendors with compelling offerings like CALD and CRM.

    Excellent news for all AAPL longs.

     

    Indeed the sales of tablets worldwide are expected to triple in the next three years. Coupled with the fact that 88% of all enterprise usage is carried out on an iPad it seems the market is closed out to any new/late entrants to this sector.
