Cast Iron CEO Ken Comee and SVP of Strategy Simon Peel to lead discussions on SaaS channels, integration and cloud providers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 27 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Cast Iron Systems, The #1 SaaS and Cloud Integration Company(TM), today announced that two of its executives are speaking at the Software & Information Industry Association (SIIA) OnDemand Conference in San Jose, California, Thursday, October 29, 2009. The theme of this year's conference is driving SaaS revenue in a recovering economy, and Cast Iron is well suited to advise other companies on this topic.

Cast Iron CEO Ken Comee kicks off the day by joining three other CEOs on the panel, Channel Strategies That Win: The ISV Perspective, exploring how to identify, recruit, and cultivate successful SaaS partners while meeting the needs of the more traditional channel. Senior Vice President of Strategy Simon Peel takes the baton in two sessions: as a panelist in Addressing the Continuing SaaS Integration Challenge, which explores current and future integration issues and how to deal with them, and as the moderator of Which Cloud Provider is Right for You?, which reveals whether the Cloud that attendees are using today will be right for them long-term.

Since joining Cast Iron Systems in April 2005, Ken Comee has driven a twenty-fold increase in revenue and new customers, making Cast Iron the de facto leader in SaaS and Cloud integration. Ken continues to drive innovation at Cast Iron through the company's transformation from a provider of integration appliances to an innovator in cloud computing.

Simon Peel is a recognized strategist and frequent speaker at SaaS and Cloud conferences, including Dreamforce, Eloqua Customer Experience, OpSource SaaS Summit, Cloud Slam and many other industry events on a wide range of technology and business strategy topics.
