SaaS 20 Overview

The SaaS 20 Index

Since the SaaS industry is very broad and covers a wide range of companies in many different segments of the software industry, it would be extremely tough to keep track of everything regarding SaaS. As a result, a index of 20 public companies that are key players in the SaaS industry were developed to track the performance and growth of the industry. Each company has a specific speciality within SaaS. This Wiki will focus on companies within the SaaS 20 Index as well as Microsoft due to their high impact in the SaaS industry.
