Since May 2006, when Xactly Incent went live on the AppExchange, Xactly has signed a number of customers -- including CNET, NetQoS, QuoteRetriever.com, BlueArc Corporation, PostX, WageWorks, Inc., Sylantro Systems, Riverbed, F5, Linksys, DoubleClick, Cablevision, Powerlight, Speakeasy, SonicWALL, Procuri and SchoolDude.com -- that are either directly attributable to lead generation via the AppExchange or who are who accessing Xactly Incent by way of the AppExchange. These businesses -- representing software and technology, media and entertainment, financial services, technology services, manufacturing and distribution, telecom and education -- now benefit from sales compensation management within their Salesforce implementations.

"AppExchange has proven itself to be an excellent marketing channel and lead generation vehicle that complements our direct selling efforts," said Karen Steele, Xactly vice president of marketing. "Salesforce.com customers are realizing tremendous synergies and business efficiencies by combining on-demand CRM and on-demand sales compensation management. Xactly is fundamentally changing the way businesses manage sales compensation and motivate sales reps to increase sales productivity and profits."

Xactly Incent for AppExchange is used by sales and finance executives, compensation analysts, sales operations and sales professionals. Xactly Incent's rules-based architecture gives companies the flexibility to easily create and manage any type of compensation plan with minimum initial investment and low cost of ownership.

"Sales compensation management and CRM go hand-in-hand, so it's no surprise that customers are deploying Xactly Incent with Salesforce," said Matt Holleran, vice president, AppExchange partners, salesforce.com. "The tight integration Xactly provides with Salesforce via the AppExchange is a significant benefit to our customers."

"Xactly provides tremendous business value by enabling salesforce.com customers to immediately extend their investment in Salesforce by integrating with Xactly Incent," said Jeff Kaplan, THINKstrategies, founder and managing director. "The combination of on-demand CRM and on-demand sales compensation is a powerful catalyst for driving sales performance and for motivating sales teams to sell more."

Xactly Incent's patent-pending Incentive Estimator provides Salesforce customers with the ability to run "what-if" scenarios based on Salesforce opportunities or estimated sales to calculate potential commission and bonus estimates and payments before, during and after a sale. From Xactly Incent, customers can quickly access the Salesforce opportunities of interest by using filters on information such as date and probability of closure.

Xactly is the first and only company completely focused on delivering a 100% on-demand sales compensation management solution. It is also the first and only company to deliver a true multi-tenant solution in a SAS 70 Type II certified environment. This single-minded approach enables Xactly to minimize hardware and software infrastructure costs -- savings that are then passed on to customers -- and accelerate the process by which it delivers new features and functionality.

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics. But it’s challenging to understand all the options – from IaaS and PaaS to newer services like HaaS (Hadoop as a Service) and BDaaS (Big Data as a Service). In her session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Hannah Smalltree, a director at Cazena, provided an educational overview of emerging “as-a-service” options for Big Data in the cloud. This is critical background for IT and data professionals...
Fact is, enterprises have significant legacy voice infrastructure that’s costly to replace with pure IP solutions. How can we bring this analog infrastructure into our shiny new cloud applications? There are proven methods to bind both legacy voice applications and traditional PSTN audio into cloud-based applications and services at a carrier scale. Some of the most successful implementations leverage WebRTC, WebSockets, SIP and other open source technologies. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Da...
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery. Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enter...
"IoT is going to be a huge industry with a lot of value for end users, for industries, for consumers, for manufacturers.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

Information technology is an industry that has always experienced change, and the dramatic change sweeping across the industry today could not be truthfully described as the first time we've seen such widespread change impacting customer investments. However, the rate of the change, and the potential outcomes from today's digital transformation has the distinct potential to separate the industry into two camps: Organizations that see the change coming, embrace it, and successful leverage it; and...
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions. Unfortunately, too many companies fall short in achieving their business goals by implementing incomplete solutions or not focusing on tangible use cases. In his general session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products...

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Stuart Gillen, Director of Business Development at SparkCognition, discussed how research has demonstrated the value of Machine Learning in delivering next generation analytics to impr...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band-aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It does...
