SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - October 30, 2009) - Hubspan, the leading provider of cloud computing-based business integration solutions, today announced that Trisha Gross, president and CEO, was selected by the Cloud Computing Conference & Expo West organizers to present during the industry event held November 2-4. Gross' presentation will focus on how companies can leverage cloud-based integration to cost-effectively build business integration communities and thrive during the current challenging economic climate.

Gross' presentation titled, "Leveraging Cloud-Based Integration To Increase Customer Loyalty, Retention and Revenues," will be held on November 2 from 7:25 - 8:10 p.m. at SYS-CON's 4th International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo held at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif.

Gross' session is part of the SOA in the Cloud track, and her talk immediately follows a session on "How to Make the CIO a Hero Again," by IBM VP of Dynamic Infrastructure, Elaine Lennox. Hubspan and IBM are strategic partners and currently market a joint solution, WebSpan, which combines the Hubspan Cloud Computing-based Integration Platform with key components of IBM WebSphere integration software.

"There is much debate in the market about cloud computing and software as a service (SaaS), but the reality is when the right products are delivered via these consumption models, businesses can achieve real, quantifiable results along with strong economic benefits," said Gross. "Hubspan's business integration solutions impact the way small and large companies think about and utilize cloud computing, and it's transforming the way companies can grow their business and gain a competitive edge."

During the session, Gross will showcase real-world examples of how companies use cloud-based integration solutions to automate and streamline business processes and build stronger customer relationships. Additionally, she will illustrate how Hubspan customers such as Barnes & are achieving a noticeable business impact through customer integration.
