May- Alex Barnett of Intuit on SaaS Models: What does this mean for Flex developers

SaaS Models: What does this mean for Flex developers?

Today, millions of Small Businesses are adopting the SaaS model. These
businesses need their data to connect, synchronize and interoperate
across the multiple back-office and front-office applications and
services they use to run their business. How will this work? How can
the cloud help Small Businesses get more out of their data and
leverage the functionality of the cloud? What are the opportunities
for ISVs and SaaS providers and Flex developers to connect and program
against the Small Business data cloud? This presentation will describe
how Intuit’s PaaS offering: the Intuit Partner Platform, is enabling a
brand new class of cloud connected services, SaaS and RIA offerings
for Small Businesses and partner with ISVs and SaaS providers to solve
real problems for millions of Small Businesses. In this session we’ll
also be demonstrating how Flex developers can use their skills to take
advantage of this huge opportunity.
