  • SuccessFactors (SFSF, up 6.03%): The HR-focused SaaS company plans to annouce quarterly results on February 9. The company is quick to note that it has grown from 92 customers in 2003 to more than 2,000 customers today.

According to a press release, the deal is Athenahealth’s largest client contract signing to date.
On the downside this past week:
  • Omniture Inc. (OMTR, down 10.46%): The maker of online analytics software may be suffering from online outages, according to Forbes. Omniture expects to announce quarterly results on Feb. 5.
  • NetSuite Inc. (N, down 8.57%): The online ERP and CRM specialist didn't disclose any "bad" news during the week, but NetSuite did score a deal with Campus Living Villages.
