I'm a fan of the Salesforce.com platform, which is really moving beyond just the CRM and Sales applications in capabilities -- but I think the licensing is one of the more challenging pieces, especially considering that some people would use an application very rarely. So I'm interested to read that Salesforce adds a per login pricing option
. I can certainly see the appeal of that sort of thing, especially if you want to have something where a wide variety of people use an online application very rarely, but you still want to take advantage of the platform.
It'll be very interesting to see how this develops. We'll see a variety of things like this, especially as the types of computers have change --- browser based computing seems to make more and more sense as we see things like iPhones, Blackberrys, MacBook Air, multiple OS environments, and so on.
