Co-founder & CEO of Zuora
Tien Tzuo, widely recognized as one of the thought leaders in the software-as-a-service industry, founded Zuora in 2007 after serving as Chief Strategy Officer at salesforce.com. As Zuora's CEO, Tzuo has not only built one of the fastest growing SaaS companies, he's also evangelized the shift to subscription based business models and the complex billing structures they inherit, coining the phrase Subscription Economy.
There is a limit to the number of things you can manufacture, move and sell. Cloud services don't have those limits.
Recent new technologies will join the roughly 200 different types of electronic-payment methods that currently permeate our world. With so many options and use cases, it can be daunting for any global business to select the right payment methods.
Subscription businesses are as old as newspapers and as new as the latest startup drawn by the prospect of recurring revenues.
