Come to Office 2.0 Conference in SF next week





My apologies for not highlighting this event sooner.

Ismael Ghalimi and other members of Office 2.0 community have been working tirelessly on putting this event together. It's going to be a great display of Office2.0 technologies. I will be there as well so if you want to set up some time to chat, let me know.

The event is on September 3-5 in San Francisco (I know, it's coming up quick). Registration fee is $1,495 but you get a HP 2133 Mini-Note PC out of it, so essentially your cost is few hundred bucks.

Hope to see you there - http://www.office20.com

PC Computing vs. SaaS Computing

I've written up a piece about the differences between traditional client-server and SaaS computing models from IT perspective for Moderro, thought I'd share with you here. SaaS comes out a hands down winner if you really look at it up close.

Zoho celebrates 1,000,000 users

Zoho did a lot of things right: they created a brand by offering quality SaaS applications, they figured out the business model by providing a healthy doze of freebie applications and only charging when the customers are hooked and charging a "no-brainer" fee, they keep innovating and putting out new products frequently

I'd say they are the ones to beat for the web office for small business.

I also hope this graph is representative of the overall SaaS adoption rate.
Congratulations Zoho!
