Summit Strategies a Leading Technology Analyst Recognizes Smart Online as a Top Vendor in Software-as-Services Market

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., April 18 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Smart Online(R), Inc. (BULLETIN BOARD: SOLN) announces Summit Strategies has acknowledged the company as a top pure-play net-native vendor in the Software- as-Services (SaS) market in their recent report written by Phil Wainewright, titled "Software Powered Services: Net-Native Software-as-Services Transforms The ISV Business Model."

Mr. Wainewright's report highlights how the SaS model is going to radically change the landscape of the software industry, "No conventional player can afford to underestimate the transformational impact of the net- native model, nor how radically it will alter the ground rules of the packaged application business. Even though the timescales are lengthy, there is precious little time left for traditional ISVs and other IT industry players to adequately prepare for the scale of change that is going to take place."
