NETSUITE TO HOST "REVOLUTION" 2006 PARTNER CONFERENCE
NetSuite Brings Industry Leaders, Influencers and NetSuite Partners Together to Further On-Demand Software Movement
SAN MATEO, Calif., September 14, 2006 — NetSuite, Inc., the leader in on-demand business software suites, today announced that its annual partner conference, NetSuite Revolution, will be held at The Argent Hotel in San Francisco, Calif., Oct. 25-27, 2006. The conference brings NetSuite partners and industry leaders together to network, gain insight and share strategies to further the industry's paradigm shift to on-demand software. And, as a result, NetSuite will accelerate its wide-spread adoption among small to medium-sized businesses with little to no IT resources.

In 2001, NetSuite was the first on-demand software company to establish a formal channel program to enable its partners to expand their businesses by delivering on-demand software applications to build recurring revenue streams. The NetSuite channel program has been recognized by both leading industry analyst firms and publications including Gartner, which conducted a survey of Value-Added Resellers (VARs) and consultants; NetSuite received the top ranking as a market visionary. VARBusiness magazine awarded NetSuite a Five-Star rating for its breadth and depth of functionality. The NetSuite Partner Program has recently been expanded to include independent software vendors (ISVs), system integrators (SIs) and referral partners which will also participate in NetSuite Revolution 2006.
"Our partners started with us on the ground floor of the on-demand movement, and they continue to help lead the paradigm shift to on-demand software," said Kristen Brown, Vice President of Alliances and Channel Sales. "I am confident this conference will reinforce their efforts. Our partners market, sell and provide services for a non-traditional solution from a relatively young upstart (NetSuite) versus Microsoft and SAP. Our partners don't bow to the established order. They are leaders and visionaries, and they offer the best products to their customers. With them, NetSuite will continue to establish 'SAP for the Rest of Us.'"
Hundreds of NetSuite's top partners, independent software vendors (ISVs), system integrators (SIs) and referral partners are expected to attend NetSuite Revolution 2006. The conference sponsors include Antenna Software, B2B Gateway, Cast Iron Systems, CompUSA Business, Contactual Software, Gproxy Design, Linkpoint360, Seven Hills Business Solutions, Skyytek Worldwide, ZeroedIn Solutions, BRIDGEWERX, LivePerson, Lyris Technologies, OZ Development, Pervasive Software and TrueShip.
