OpSource(TM), the SaaS delivery experts, today announced that it will host its third annual on-demand industry conference dedicated to helping software-as-a-service (SaaS) and Web 2.0 companies maximize their success in the on-demand world. The SaaS Summit 2008 event will focus on how successful companies must not only think like Web companies, but also make the right platform choices and embrace Web services to build out and extend their offerings.

    Like its highly successful predecessors, SaaS Summit 2008 will provide an opportunity for executives from SaaS startups, transitioning software and Web companies and established SaaS providers, as well as industry analysts, venture capitalists and the press to explore, debate and share their experiences and recommendations for growing on-demand businesses. The conference takes place February 27 to 29, 2008 at The Westin St. Francis, San Francisco, Calif.

Treb Ryan, CEO, OpSource, said, "On-Demand success is all about speed to market and customer interaction. In 2008 Web services and exciting platform opportunities will enable on-demand companies to jump into hyper-speed. They will be able to save as much as seventy percent of their development time through the use of web services and reach millions of potential users by making the right platform choices. But with incredible opportunity comes increased risk: open versus closed platforms; which web services; and evolving business models will challenge on-demand companies. SaaS Summit '08 will help companies make the best choices for their success and continue its tradition as a leading forum for advancing the on-demand industry."

SaaS Summit 2008 topics will include:

-- What has to be done and by whom to accelerate the growth of Web application service delivery?

-- Platform choices: Which & why?

-- Web 2.0 psyche, scary?

-- Will Enterprises embrace Web 2.0?

-- Integration behind the enterprise firewall, take II

-- Web services: Leverage or trap?

-- What is so hard about on-demand on-boarding and billing?

-- If you sell on-demand, shouldn't you be buying on-demand?
