Good post on the opportunity to deliver design applications via the net over on the COFES blogs: COFES Blogs – Is SaaS the Killer App for the CAD Industry?
The important thing about this post is what it neglects to mention as an obstacle: bandwidth. As recently as 12 months ago no discussion about delivering design from the cloud would be complete with a missive on how it would be hard to ever get enough pipe to deliver rich CAD apps. Everyone seems to forget that Moore’s law also applies to bandwidth and maybe, just maybe, we’ve passed the point where there’s enough for some real design to get done from a Saas app. commando dvd
