  • Adobe net income doubled in the six years following the switch to the Creative Cloud subscription model.
  • Salesforce revenue & revenue growth chart looks like this.

Now the question is who is driving these figures? The answer is straightforward. It is in fact our organizations that are responsible, partly because of the complexities of managing SaaS spending.
