Rackspace is hosting its first annual SaaS Summit on October 7th at the Westin LaCantera Resort in San Antonio, TX. The one-day, all-day, event features presentations from Accenture, Microsoft, Akamai, Boomi, Nimsoft and best-selling author Daniel Pink. It also includes a FundMyApp live streaming session on Building43.com, and insights from Rackspace leadership and Partners.

Key Highlights

Introducing AppMatcher & Rackspace SaaS Initiative
Featuring Klee Kleber Rackspace SVP & SaaS GM; Andy Schroepfer VP Strategy
Attend the launch of AppMatcher, the world’s first matchmaking engine connecting specific businesses with relevant applications, and the launch of the Rackspace SaaS Initiative that will serve more than 1,000 B2B applications in the Managed Hosting division. See a brief overview of the SaaS unit’s credentials and capabilities, as well as the long-term strategy for SaaS application customers.

Fund My App
Looking for funding for your SaaS App? Ten lucky management teams will have the opportunity to pitch our panel of judges. Each judge will have the opportunity to fund the business, but all will provide feedback. This will be recorded and streamed live on Robert Scoble’s Building43.com, which is powered by the Rackspace Cloud. In addition, progress of each presenting company will be published by Rackspace on the NoMoreServers blog.

Keynote Dinner
Featuring Daniel H. Pink
Best-selling author Daniel H. Pink published “Free Agent Nation: The Future of Working for Yourself” back in 2002 to much acclaim. Since that time, the depth and breadth of SaaS applications for small businesses in any vertical has improved their ability to compete and succeed. Author Pink will present an updated perspective on the future of small businesses and their ability to challenge larger rivals thanks to hosted applications.
