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.
