Over the past eight years, HP has quietly built itself a solid constituency in the Software as a Service community. The company offers a huge range of applications hosted in the cloud -- almost its entire IT portfolio, in fact. That is why the company views the current economic crunch with equanimity. While many vendors see it as an opportunity to grab new market share from budget-stricken companies, HP plans to continue to position its cloud offerings as a strategic alternative to companies' own IT operations.
