SAN MATEO, Calif., Sept. 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced the details of a special Web event to help high-tech solution providers understand the ongoing seismic shift, cloud opportunities and new revenue models in enterprise technology. The ChannelCast webinar, "Roadmap to Cloud ROI for VARs: How SaaS is Fueling the Most Successful Cloud VARs" will feature Andrew Hickey, Senior Editor at CRN, and Craig West, Vice President, Americas Channel at NetSuite. This ChannelCast will look at the available market for SaaS and cloud computing, dig into some of the predictions of where these markets are heading and examine how solution providers can best stake their claim in this fast-paced, evolving ecosystem. With established technologies like SaaS, and emerging application opportunities, solution providers stand on the precipice of cloud domination and massive success. The event will be held September 27th at 11:00 a.m. PDT (2:00 p.m. EDT). Register now for the event at http://bit.ly/everythingchannel_NS.
Today's enterprise computing market presents significant challenges to the traditional VAR business model. The channel's share of IT expenditures is shrinking and so is the number of solution providers. Solution providers want to be able to cut through the noise and clutter, and attract more customers and clients, with a business model that can support both present and future growth. With capital expenditures falling and cloud computing spending expected to reach $2 billion in 2012, as according to Gartner, Inc., the time to embrace the cloud is now.
"We know that VARs are keenly interested in the opportunities awaiting them in the cloud, but we also know that there is an abundance of companies claiming to be part of the cloud market, creating a great deal of confusion," said West. "NetSuite presents an opportunity, proven in over 10,000 companies and subsidiaries worldwide, for VARs to become part of a vibrant, active, and growing cloud computing channel today."
During this one-hour webinar, attendees will:
- Examine solution provider market opportunities in cloud computing, specifically SaaS
- Present predictions for cloud computing markets
- Explain how solution providers with a vintage business model can evolve towards progressive and transformative cloud VARs
- Demonstrate proven and lucrative strategies for solution providers to migrate to cloud offerings
Join NetSuite and CRN on September 27th to learn about end-to-end business opportunities in the cloud for VARs, system integrators, and developers.
