We need consultants stat

SaaS needs its consultants too, says Salesforce partner exec.

In a sign of the maturity of software as a service, said Tuesday that the company needs at least 2,000 certified consultants to keep up with revenue growth.

ZDNet Australia's Suzanne Tindal covered's partner powwow at the Dreamforce conference. The theme of the conference revolves around the social enterprise.

Turns out this social thing can be a bit complicated. Salesforce senior vice president worldwide partners and solutions Denzil Samuels talked complexity and a changing landscape.

Samuels said:

"The landscape's changed. There's complexity. The need for the partners has become intense."

Add it up and needs a consultant army of sorts. The company launched a certification program.

The upshot is that SaaS is getting more complicated.
