Rackspace SaaS event

I presented to a very knowledgeable audience at a SaaS event that RackSpace put on at Microsoft in London today.

We covered some industry trends, I talked about building a platform for scale, James Murfin from Mural Consulting did an excellent talk on SaaS Marketing and Sean Williams from Collectsoft talked about funding options for SaaS.  There were some great questions.

Here are my slides.

Rod,

It was great to present alongside you at last week’s event – exciting times, and you’re certainly leveraging a LOT of what makes the difference between success and failure in this ‘SaaS’ world. Don’t forget to have one of the Xero team complete our online assessment for SaaS Readiness:

The detailed assessment will give you some excellent, immediate recommendations on scaling even more through smart sales, marketing, service and support.

We look forward to working together!
