What's after SaaS?
Featuring Andrew Blount,
Executive Vice President, Chief Innovation Officer, RealPage
Today, most software companies describe themselves as Software as a Service (SaaS). What exactly is SaaS, when did it start, and what comes next? Sure, SaaS has been good to us, but what's in store for us in the future? Andrew will regale us with his musings regarding technology solutions of the future, tomorrow's business models and his three ways to know when you've been outmoded. By delivering a mixture of his high-tech vision and humor fit for a Big Bang lover you're sure to leave this month's luncheon with a life-size, enlightened smile.
