Salesforce.com and Viocorp invite you to the next installment in The Desktop Sessions. This live audio presentation entitled "The Code Ahead: The Future of Software" will be webcasted at 11:30am AEST, Friday 20th October 2006.

Our guest speaker is Jeremy Cooper, Vice President, Asia Pacific, salesforce.com.

The Consumer Web, characterized by platforms such as Google, Yahoo!, iTunes, eBay, Amazon.com and many others, is now well established and part of everyday life. But, why can't business applications be as easy to test-drive, download and deploy as music is from iTunes?

Drawing on lots of examples, Jeremy will explain how the future of software is defining itself around 10 fundamental imperatives. The Business Web™ has arrived - and no software is required.

Attend this event by logging in from your PC and get an insight into web-based applications and how they are rapidly becoming the future of software. The presentation will be short; 20 minutes plus question-time.
