SAN MATEO, Calif.—September 18, 2012—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced that NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson will deliver a keynote, a featured address and lead a panel discussion at the Oracle OpenWorld 2012 conference in San Francisco. Zach Nelson's keynote session takes place on Tuesday, October 2 at 11:45 a.m. Pacific Time in the Lam Research Theater at Yerba Buena Center for the Arts next to Moscone North. The keynote session entitled: "Oracle and NetSuite—Driving Two-Tier ERP," will explain how global enterprises can improve the flexibility, scalability and cost structure of multi-subsidiary and multi-national operations by adopting flexible and nimble cloud ERP solutions which interface seamlessly with established corporate ERP systems. This two-tier ERP approach preserves the investment made in headquarters ERP while providing remote operations and subsidiaries with a standardized, powerful and easily customizable cloud ERP solution in a fraction of the time normally needed to expand on-premise systems. Several joint customers of Oracle and NetSuite, including Land O'Lakes, will participate in the panel and explain how their hybrid cloud approach has helped them overcome the obstacles to global subsidiary expansion and management, including inventory, currency, taxation and time zone challenges.
