February, 2015


Welcome to the February Cirrostratus Group Newsletter.


I've been a speaker at some of the previous SaaS University events. This month I've highlighted some interesting updates on SaaS University and included a discount code for the new SaaS University.


I also reviewed a book written by my colleague and the organizer of SaaS university, Merrill (Rick) Chapman. The second edition of this book is now available here. You can read my previous review and why I think that this is a great SaaS resource. One of the things about the original version was the great amount of real data in it and all that data has been updated in the 2nd edition. 


I am always interested in  your plans for developing and offering cloud applications. Let me know what you're working on.

SaaS University

SaaS University Logo       
SaaS University is now an online SaaS learning center and I'm pleased that my session on SaaS Metrics in included in the curriculum.

The overall content is a broad selection of practical information on SaaS. I've seen most of the content and this is one of the most cost effective ways I know to see these experts on the SaaS topics and to learn this content. Here is a coupon code to save $50 -- SAASUSCHL50 on a SaaS University subscription. You can sign up here. The coupon code does expire so please use it sooner rather than later. 
Open Source Survey    

It's time to take the annual Future of Open Source Survey and you can fill it out here. It is sponsored by Northbridge Venture Partners and Black Duck Software and I have found the results of this very useful and have extracted some information about the impact and changes for Open Source usage in SaaS.
