Not typically known for giving keynote addresses, NetSuite co-founder and chief technology officer Evan Goldberg took the stage Wednesday at the company’s user and partner conference to highlight NetSuite’s growing vertical direction and the overall future of the product.

In Goldberg’s first ever keynote, he took the time to boast how customers, and the company itself, are innovating on the SuiteCloud platform.

“When I think about the direction that NetSuite is going to take over the next few years, I have to focus on the SuiteCloud platform. It is increasingly used by us to drive the innovation of the platform itself,” said Goldberg. “Our goal with development is to go wide, go deep, and innovate. In all verticals we will have new editions…e-commerce, manufacturing and wholesale distribution, service-based businesses, and software specifically.”

He continued to highlight successes in customer use of NetSuite for specific verticals, specifically companies that use it for warehouse management and Google app integration.

Goldberg also told the audience to expect new developments in mobile applications, the SuitePhone app for iPhones and iPads in particular, as well as business intelligence.

In addition, Goldberg stressed that NetSuite will be “more customizable” than ever as more customers demand it from the company.

“Our customers made it clear to us they want NetSuite to be extremely customizable,” he said. “We now have SuiteScript Web apps that help unify HTML and ‘suitelets,’ giving you the ability to create dynamic Web pages. We also want to explore doing more with mobile and social applications, as well as getting actionable intelligence out of the system.”
