Funding companies ushering in a new era of cloud-delivered applications to the enterprise

Our View

Increasingly, enterprise software is being re-imagined in the form of services delivered via the cloud. Organizations are finding that software in this form is easier and less expensive to deploy, and enables them to be more customer-centric. The first generation of SaaS companies replicated on-premise software functionality while simplifying implementation and lowering deployment costs. Now, SaaS companies are leveraging collected data and analytics to create more targeted solutions for their customers, and making their applications available through mobile devices.

Most of our portfolio companies deliver services via the cloud with a multi-tenant and single-instance architecture. Others provide solutions through a private cloud model to meet vertical market needs. We anticipate continued growth in this dynamic sector as cloud computing penetrates and benefits all areas of the enterprise.

Your Advantage

We began investing in enterprise software in 1993. By 2000, we recognized the power of SaaS to become the delivery model for a wide range of business applications. Having made over a dozen SaaS investments, we know how software is purchased, implemented and used by the enterprise. And we’ve built a world-class network of software CEOs, analysts and thought leaders. Put our resources to work for your company.
