I concur whdalheerteoly with JP and Andy users are demanding the ability to self-service. I find it ironic, Andy, that you stop yourself from continuing this thought as it pertains to business applications. IT departments can indeed offer their customers a self-service model. Web portals could offer all kinds of PC-based applications on a self-service model, and even charge a rent/subscription fee (a PC-based app competing with the subscription web-native SaaS app? This can't be!) Just as On-Demand has effected music, movies, and videos, the new wave is just brewing for traditional software applications and games. Leading-edge streaming technology is making this happen, with several websites offering it today.
