SaaS products that monetize your domain knowledge and expertise

If someone asks me what cloud computing is, I try not to get bogged down with definitions. I tell them that, simply put, cloud computing is a better way to run your business.
— Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce

When Salesforce targeted Siebel conferences with their fake protests, no one could have guessed that they would be worth more than $50B fifteen years later.

In the last decade, the tremendous growth in SaaS market has created behemoths like Salesforce. This trend has also resulted in the proliferation smaller SaaS companies that target various industry verticals and specific departments within larger organizations. The chart below shows the top 300 privately-held cloud companies, according to Bessemer Venture Partners, across different verticals and specializations.

Every vendor in this chart does one thing really well like charging recurring payments or launching e-mail campaigns. For a small subscription fee, enterprises can quickly adopt and leverage these cloud products.

In the next decade, we think that businesses will rely even more on cloud-hosted SaaS solutions to, as Benioff says, “run their businesses.” This has far-reaching implications for traditional businesses, especially B2B services firms that deal with knowledge and workflows. The institutional knowledge in these firms can be the foundation for SaaS offerings in underserved markets.
