AJAX World RIA Conference: RIAs & SaaS - Like Bees & Honey

Catalyst Resources' Paul Giurata to Present at SYS-CON's AJAXWorld RIA Conference & Expo, Oct 20-22, in San Jose, CA

25% percent of new business software will be delivered as SaaS by 2011, according to Gartner. RIAs are essential for SaaS applications. But the characteristics of SaaS RIAs can be very distinct from other web applications, including componentization, scalability, unified user experience, and integration with other applications.

This session will identify how SaaS is unique from other web applications and how RIAs can expose internal business systems to automate the marketing, trial, purchasing, configuration, support and social referral processes that are essential for scalable and profitable SaaS.
