SANTA BARBARA, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–July 25, 2006– Citrix’s Brett Caine and Salesforce.com’s Marc Benioff, among SaaS Influentials on Panel at Stanford University’s Frances C. Arrillaga Alumni Center on July 26 at 2:20 PM PT
The world’s foremost business and technology influencers will converge at the Always-On 2006 Innovation Summit at Stanford University to debate the momentum, economic impact and viability of a growing stream of business productivity applications that are increasingly available as on-demand solutions and software-as-a-service (SaaS).
Brett Caine, general manager of Citrix Online, a division of Citrix Systems, Inc. (CTXS), joins the distinguished panel with Marc Benioff, CEO Salesforce.com; Greg Gianforte, CEO and founder RightNow Technologies; George Kadifa, general manager, On Demand Group, IBM and Zach Nelson, CEO, Netsuite with moderator Ray Lane, Partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, on the topic: ‘Has the SaaS Model Finally Arrived?’ http://stanfordsummit.goingon.com/permalink/post/866 .
Caine will present a compelling case that the on-demand model has not only arrived — it’s an essential strategy for success in today’s global marketplace — particularly for small and midsize businesses (SMB).
Based on more than six years of pure-play SaaS market leadership with Citrix(R) GoToMyPC(R), Citrix(R) GoToAssist(TM) remote support, Citrix(R) GoToMeeting(TM) and new Citrix(R) GoToWebinar(TM) Web events made easy, he will discuss the accelerating opportunity available online for SMBs to grow and compete — with any size rival — as never before possible.
“For entrepreneurs and small businesses, capabilities to conduct business over the Web offer low-cost access to communication and new ‘pro-sumer’ distribution channels that are creating new routes to market,” said Caine. “With Citrix Online’s simpler-is-better approach to access and collaboration SaaS, our customers are able to reach their potential on a global scale.”
