Dennis had the opportunity to sit down with stilgherrian (yes – that’s his whole name) to discuss NetSuite’s market position in Australia. It provides fascinating insights into why this market might be good for the company, but also the challenges it faces.

Interestingly, uniquely in this territory, NetSuite is servicing very small businesses through JCurve Solutions. They were recognised as NetSuite’s top APAC reseller.

Although we don’t have accurate numbers, the best guesstimate is that NetSuite is doing something around $6 million in business in that country. That is calculated based upon number of deals done mentioned during NetSuite’s Hairball Awards.
