Declaration of Independence - SaaS Version

When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the Internet, the separate and equal station to which the laws of computing and of computing's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of userkind that they should declare the causes which impel them to the transition.

We hold these truths to be self-evident:

That all customers are created equal; That they are endowed by their Platform with certain unalienable rights; that among these are customization, integration, adoption and the pursuit of usability.


We, therefore, the representatives of the end users and CIOs, in General Congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of the good people of these business units solemnly publish and declare, That these Applications are, and of right ought to be, ON-DEMAND AND MULTI-TENANT APPS; and as on-demand and multi-tenant apps they have full power to support customizations, web services, new user interface designs and do all things which useful apps may of right do.

[Signed by] Anshu Sharma [SaaS Evangelist]

Notes:
1.
After reading the flood of responses to 'The End of SaaS' interview by an on-premise vendor, I was inspired to pen this declaration of indpendence on behalf of the customers and users who no longer want to be constrained by the cocaine (his words, not mine) of on-premise.
2. For those challenged in the humor department and therefore not amused, I invoke my First and Fifth Amendment Rights.
3. Computing's God - That would be Donald Knuth
