NetSuite event near SAP Sapphire canceled


Some NetSuite executives are saying that a press and analyst cocktail hour with NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson may have been quashed through some pressure from SAP executives. Nelson was scheduled to speak Wednesday at The Rosen Centre, a hotel and conference center located directly across from the SAP Sapphire user conference.

NetSuite sells on-demand software suite for small and midmarket businesses. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison owns the majority of NetSuite.

Some rumblings we’re hearing from  NetSuite executives is that the hotel may have pulled the contract and all nearby hotels refused to accept a NetSuite event.   

The title of Nelson’s cocktail hour: “SAP for the rest of us”

“While filling you with cocktails, NetSuite CEO Zach Nelson will discuss SAP's most recent attempts to break into the mid-market and why these efforts are 'more of the same.' He will unveil new NetSuite capabilities for the mid-market and explain why the on-demand suite is the disruptive new force that is delivering what the mid-market has long sought.”

A formal letter about the issue from Nelson is expected on Monday.

More to come…
