Illuminating the Ongoing Revolution in the Software Industry Date: Thursday, July 24, 2008 Time: 9:30am-11:30am

As a Celebration of the SAO Social Network Millennial Milestone and to Thank all of our Members, SAO and Intel present Dr. Timothy Chou, Author, “Seven::Software Business Models” and “The End of Software”

The software industry is a little over 25 years old, barely a blip in the history of science and technology. Yet in that short time major companies like SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, Google, eBay and Amazon have evolved. Seven is the story of the seven major business models we’ve seen in the software industry. More importantly, Seven is a story told from the experiences of some of the major players to inform those in the industry of lessons learned. Successes and failures, triumphs and defeats, Seven is focused on helping everyone in the software industry be prepared for the next major shifts in this dynamic and important industry.

Timothy Chou, Author, "Seven; Software Business Models" & "The End of Software" Timothy Chou (the former President of Oracle on Demand) has over twenty-five years of experience in the technology business. Chou has been recognized as an industry visionary on the evolution of the software industry from the traditional model to Software as a Service (SaaS). Seven is a follow on book to The End of Software which predicted the rise of software delivered as a service. Now that this transition is happening Seven provides a framework for the producers and consumers of software to take the next steps.
