Crisis gives birth to innovation. The proverb proves always true in the world of technology. As companies search for ways to power through the present economic downturn, the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model has gained even more momentum.

Businesses in many industries and geographies have applied this service delivery model to a variety of business processes and achieved great success.

Many market commentators are referring to today’s economic malaise in the form of letters. Are we in a “U-shaped” recession or will it be a “W?” Perhaps the worst of both worlds: the dreaded “L.” The obvious extended nature of our current downturn will be much longer than that implied by these simplistic descriptors.

The economic recession and financial crisis have cast a dark cloud over most of the venture capital industry. The popular press continues to report bad news: poor exit markets, reduced venture investment and employee layoffs at technology firms. Despite these glum reports, innovative technologies are still being developed and many promising venture-backed companies are maintaining revenue growth. One example is companies developing the software-as-a-service model, the technology more commonly known as “SaaS.” As a provider of banking services to SaaS technology companies and as a consumer of SaaS offerings, SVB has observed SaaS as one of the bright spots in the venture capital industry. We expect that SaaS innovation will expand during the economic recession and SaaS technology will become a mainstay of enterprise computing.
