Rootstock’s Garrehy to Discuss “Bringing Manufacturing Business Software (ERP) to the Cloud” at OASIS Summit
Invitation-only event featuring top entrepreneurs and investors, senior level media and technology executives, and leading industry visionaries – March 5-6 in Santa Monica
SAN FRANCISCO, CA – February 26, 2014 – Rootstock Software®, the leader in cloud manufacturing and supply chain applications, today announced that Pat Garrehy, founder and CEO of Rootstock Software, will give a presentation at OASIS, Wednesday, March 5, at 9:30 a.m. on how manufacturers, facing a whole new series of pressures and changes, can meet them only with the flexibilities and scalabilities of putting their manufacturing software on the cloud. Other presenters include BlackBerry interim CEO John Chen, bestselling author Deepak Chopra and tech legend Paul Maritz. Presenting at OASIS for the second time is Golden Globe-nominated actress and Honest Company founder Jessica Alba.
“After more than a decade of controversy, there is now unanimity of thought on many of the benefits and evolution of Cloud ERP. Indeed, today, there is common thinking among business and market analysts, software vendors and system integrators about the role of Cloud ERP and, at last, this consensus is finally trickling down to end-users,” emphasizes Garrehy. “With Cloud ERP, using the Software as a Service (SaaS) model, users are provided access to ERP software and databases anytime from anywhere to support global operations. Instead of managing the infrastructure and platform upon which the ERP software suite runs, the cloud providers do so for them.”
An outgrowth of the hugely popular Montgomery Technology Conference, OASIS makes its debut this year with 150 exceptional presenting companies. These companies will fall into three categories: “First Look” companies that generate less than $10 million in yearly revenues; “Emerging” companies with revenues between $10 million and $50 million; and “Growth” companies whose yearly revenues exceed $50 million. Prior conferences have provided early looks at Facebook, Twitter, Pandora, Splunk, Marketo, Meraki, Exact Target, Rocket Fuel, and other breakout companies.
Speakers also announced for OASIS include Ashish Thakkar, named World’s Best Young Entrepreneur by the World Entrepreneurship Forum, and Brazilian mining billionaire Bernardo Paz, who will talk about the importance of creativity and innovation through the context of his world-famous art retreat in the Atlantic Forest of Brazil.
Founder technology investor James Montgomery says his goal with OASIS is to bridge one of the industry’s top insider technology and finance conferences with global thought leadership in innovation and creativity. “Montgomery Summit stakeholders have always relished the atmosphere at the Fairmont Miramar for intimate, high-level business networking and insights,” adds Montgomery. “At the same time, these leaders embrace an atmosphere where creativity and innovation can be explored in the context of building great products and companies.”
