O curioso do relato é que o "medo" de open source cresceu, mas o
"medo" de SaaS diminuiu. E o grande motor deste último é o primeiro.
Vejamos o que diz a The Economist (via blog do Ian Murdock):

The Economist:

    Cloud computing—the delivery of processing power over the internet
from vast warehouses of shared machines—will further blur the lines
between proprietary and open-source software. Most of the firms
peddling this model, such as Amazon and Google, use open-source
software, since having to pay licensing fees would make the business
unprofitable. But their services also rely on code developed in-house,
which is not given away free. Microsoft, meanwhile, is building a huge
cloud using its own software. If computing becomes a service delivered
over the internet, it will hardly matter how the underlying software
is developed.

    Does this mean that the quest for openness in software is
obsolete? On the contrary. If they are not careful, companies and
consumers could get locked into a cloud even more tightly than into a
piece of software. This is because data residing in the cloud can be
hard to move to another service. “If you have a gigabyte somewhere, it
develops a certain inertia,” says Mike Olson, the boss of Cloudera,
which recently found it could not switch from a poor storage service
because there was no way to move the data.

    This sort of problem has spawned an open-data movement. In March a
group of technology firms led by IBM published an “Open Cloud
Manifesto” that has since received the support of more than 150
companies and organisations. It is only a beginning, but perhaps this
time around the industry will not have to go through a long
proprietary period before rediscovering the virtues of openness.
