Cloud Computing Pioneer InfoStreet Featured in New Book on SaaS Entrepreneurs by Rick Chapman

TARZANA, CA--(Marketwire - Oct 8, 2012) - InfoStreet Inc., Cloud Computing pioneer and provider of Cloud Apps, is being featured in Merrill R. Chapman's newly published book, "SaaS Entrepreneur, the Definitive Guide to Success in Your Cloud Application Business." The new book features an interview with InfoStreet's CEO, Siamak Farah, and focuses on his knowledge of the Channel Partners market in the chapter titled SaaS Entrepreneur Case Study InfoStreet: An Interview with Siamak Farah.

"The principal reason I profiled Siamak and InfoStreet in 'SaaS Entrepreneur: The Definitive Guide to Succeeding in Your Cloud Application Business' is that when Softletter first began its SaaS University series in 2007, I turned to Siamak to present and explain the role of resellers and channels in SaaS," Chapman said. "Siamak has tremendous experience in the area and can talk knowledgeably about channels in SaaS from aggregators to OEMs. Since that first session in Santa Clara, Siamak has attended other SaaS University in venues such as Boston and Denver and lectured on ongoing developments in SaaS channels. When I began work on the 'Channels' chapter in SaaS Entrepreneur, he was one of my principle resources. InfoStreet's development of its SkyDesktop aggregator marketplace concept is part of the ongoing development of SaaS channels and we'll be hearing more about it."

Farah's interview in the book focuses mainly on the Channel's use of Cloud consolidation and Cloud technology, along with information on how to grow a Channel user-base with SaaS.

"I have a ton of respect for Rick (Merrill) and his knowledge and contribution to the growth of the SaaS market and I was honored to be part of a revolutionary book that focuses on this burgeoning space," said Farah. "Anyone looking to be in the SaaS business needs to pick up a copy."

The book is currently available online for $49.99, or for free for attendees of the upcoming Softletter SaaS University in Boston. For more information or to purchase the book, please visit http://www.softletter.com/Resources/SaaSEntrepreneurTheBook.aspx.
