Boston, MA (October 17, 2006)—OpenAir VP of Sales and Marketing Ed Marshall will be a panelist in tomorrow's SIIA webcast, discussing how to manage channel conflict in the Software-as-a-Service environment. Marshall brings broad experience running sales, services and business development groups to the table, discussing partner selection and partner program success.

"We have some fantastic partners who have leveraged the new on-demand marketplace to provide higher-value offerings to our joint customers."

Marshall will be joining executives from ClickCommerce, Intacct and DynaSales for the webcast, which will take place on October 18, 2006 from 12:30PM - 2:00PM EST / 9:30AM-11AM PST.
