Moneyball and NetSuite

Moneyball is a good movie and I recommend it.  The tie in with the software industry is NetSuite whose logo is all over the dugout and prominent in several scenes.  The central character of the drama is Oakland A’s general manager Billy Bean and most of us know his story about actually using statistics in baseball to predict how a team will play.  Based on Michael Lewis’ true story book about the 2002 baseball season it’s a good way to spend a couple of hours and because Brad Pitt plays the lead I had no trouble dragging my wife to see it.

The point of this short post though is NetSuite.  This is a movie so devoid of product placement that the soda machine, which features prominently in two scenes, is called the soda machine and not the Coke machine.  Nonetheless, because the NetSuite logo is plastered on  the dugout in real life, it’s there in the movie too.  Zach Nelson and the team at NetSuite should get props for being lucky.

So, what did you think?
