Sydney, Australia—30 September 2014—NetSuite Inc. (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP and omnichannel commerce software suites, today announced SuiteConnect 2014, its largest user-oriented event to date in Australia. The customer-focused day-long event will include an exhibition, keynote presentations, demonstrations and break-out sessions and is a testament to NetSuite's existing strong customer and partner base in the region, coupled with the increasing demand for and interest in the NetSuite cloud from NetSuite's current customers and businesses that are frustrated with their current on-premise software such as SAP, Microsoft Dynamics GP, and MYOB and want to grow and expand their businesses by moving their mission critical business processes to the cloud.

NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson will kick off SuiteConnect 2014 in Sydney with his keynote entitled: "The Next Disruption: Collision of Products and Services Business"—an examination of how modern enterprises are leveraging the cloud to enable globalisation, agility and mobility at rapid speed. Mr. Nelson's keynote will set the tone for a day focused on how companies can drive transformational change with cloud technology. SuiteConnect 2014 will take place at Sheraton on the Park in Sydney on Tuesday 28th October from 11am – 5pm. For registration and details please visit

"Australia and New Zealand have seen some strong growth both in partner adoption and customer deployment with NetSuite. However, globally industries are changing. Customers expect more from their product and more from their service – causing these two types of businesses to merge. Businesses in ANZ and worldwide can only adapt to this shift effectively if they operate in the cloud. Otherwise, they are setting themselves up today for failure tomorrow," said Zach Nelson, CEO, NetSuite.

As the adoption of cloud technology accelerates in the region, NetSuite has established a very strong footprint in Australia, New Zealand and the rest of APAC. The SuiteConnect 2014 event brings together NetSuite customers, sales prospects, partners, and developers as well as industry thought leaders to network face to face and share cloud insights and best practices. SuiteConnect 2014 also provides companies looking to replace their on-premise software with a cloud business management solution like NetSuite with opportunities to learn from their peers and experts about how today's businesses are transforming their global operations in a fraction of the time with NetSuite. In ANZ, Lonely Planet, Williams Sonoma, BioPak, Kitchenware Direct, Toll and Sulco are among the more than 20,000 next-generation organisations and subsidiaries worldwide that are now reaping the benefits of the NetSuite cloud.

To meet the growing demand for NetSuite's cloud business management suite in the region, NetSuite has expanded on previous events in Australia to offer a full-day conference encompassing key partners and application providers exhibiting at the SuiteConnect Expo providing insightful presentations, product demonstrations, and an array of interactive and educational breakout sessions.
