NetSuite is always good for ear catching sound bites and SuiteWorld didn't disappoint. As always, Zach Nelson, CEO NetSuite provides top value:
"In 1996 I organised Oracle Open World. IT was such a traumatic experience I vowed never to do a user conference ever again. Well, here we are."
"When I was at Oracle I made million dollar mistakes and got promoted."
"SAP has this clone of NetSuite called Business ByDesign - good luck with that one."
On Salesforce.com's Chatter: "...requiring everyone in the organisation to adopt is actually anti-social."
"No-one wants to do accounting online, they want to run business processes"
"Cloud has become a dangerous term."
Quote of the day has to go to Mark Hurd, president of Oracle talking about the announcement that NetSuite is an Exadata customer: "If you're buying NetSuite, you're buying Oracle, and you are very important to us." There was a sharp intake of breath among media and analysts at that one. My take? Be afraid, be very afraid. -;)
