(Ping! Zine Web Hosting Magazine) – Business executives seeking to explore Software as a Service applications are invited and encouraged to attend a complimentary breakfast seminar at Microsoft’s Bloomington office on May 5, 2011.
VISI and Microsoft are partnering to co-host the seminar, entitled Leveraging Partners to SaaS-Enable Your Business. The seminar is designed to provide business executives with practical information regarding Software as a Service. Topics include understanding the SaaS model, the challenges in offering a SaaS application, key considerations when choosing a hosting partner, and what business leaders need to know to optimize results from an SaaS initiative.
Microsoft’s 2011 SMB Cloud Adoption Study found cloud adoption rates among small and medium-sized businesses are expected to jump by more than one third over the next three years. The study also found that small and medium-sized businesses seeking SaaS applications tend to be exceptionally growth-oriented.
“SaaS applications are increasingly prevalent among businesses of all sizes, across a wide variety of industries,” said Gary Elfert, director of products and marketing at VISI. “This seminar will equip attendees with the tools to make informed choices regarding where to host your SaaS application.”
While the seminar is complimentary, registration is required and can be completed at http://www.visi.com/events.
