As part of our June 25th segment “Emerging Giants; The New Titans of the SaaS World,” we will be featuring senior executives from five of these future “Titans,” highlighting why their organizations are unique, capable and well positioned to reverse the trend of failed initiatives associated with the traditional licensing model vendors.

Joining me on June 25th to discuss their take on this changing of the guard are Anurag Dixit, Vice President, Marketing (Zycus), Steve Wargalla, Vice President, Foundation & Managing Director (QStrat), Rob Bernshteyn, Chief Executive Officer (Coupa), Leonora Valvo, Chief Executive Officer (etouches) and Rich Becks, Senior Vice President (E2open).

Today we feature Rob Bernshteyn from (Coupa)
