SaaS SIG "The Business of Software as a Service: Attaining Operational Excellence with the On-Demand Model"

What are the best practices in a company that provides enterprise software via the on-demand model? From the ASP movement to "Apps on Tap" to today's "on-demand" models, the hype-to-reality differences have clouded the true business implications of the model for both providers of SaaS and for the customers who partake of that delivery method. This session will address some of the many business ramifications of the SaaS delivery method to both providers and consumers.

The presenter is Katherine Jones, Director of Marketing for NetSuite, Inc., a Bay Area company that provides integrated ERP solutions as a hosted service to middle market enterprises. She was a research director at Aberdeen Group in Boston for eight years, focusing on research on ERP and mid-market companies. Her focus there was on the fundamental processes of business operations and strategy, delivery methods, and the effects of technological change and innovation on these processes within the global organization. She has written widely on many areas of technology and business practices.
