Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) has emerged from its early ASP, "pay-as-you-grow" roots to mainstream adoption and acceptance not only with small-to-medium businesses but also with enterprise customers. In this session, we will address real-world examples detailing the business motivations for SaaS as a platform, as well as the adoption drivers that are accelerating SaaS implementation. We will also give a practical overview of the emerging "ecosystems" as SaaS deployments increasingly link to on-premise data, applications, and processes through APIs and Web Services.

Bonus! Pacific Crest Securities will be presenting an industry quarterly update on the Technology Industry with a specific focus on the Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") sector. Pacific Crest's sales and trading group is the largest dedicated group on Wall Street.

Speaker: Dave Childers, CEO & Director, EthicsPoint

Pacific Crest Analyst: Brenden Barnicle, Senior Research Analyst, Enterprise Software
