Nintex Gets Social with Yammer Integration

Nintex (www.nintex.com), the world’s leading SharePoint workflow company, today announced rich integration between Nintex Workflow and Yammer, the best-in-class Enterprise Social Network recently acquired by Microsoft. Leveraging the Nintex Live platform, this integration enables Yammer customers to discover and participate in business processes without having to leave the familiar Yammer environment. In addition, SharePoint customers can now extend the reach of their workflows by monitoring and responding to activity in Yammer Feeds, pushing notifications to Yammer Networks, and managing Yammer users, groups, and profiles.

“We’re making workflow social so our customers can engage their workforce and reinvent business processes in innovative new ways,” said Ryan Duguid, vice president of product management at Nintex. “Bringing SharePoint and Yammer together is a key part of that vision and it allows us to extend process to where people actually work.”

By leveraging Nintex Yammer integration, users can finally drive business processes and manage tasks directly within social media channels. For example, a user could crowd source task completion within a team, discuss a customer escalation, and document a stream of intelligence around a particular business issue or solution. IT administrators can also create Yammer users and populate profiles as part of an automated employee onboarding processes, and manage the creation of groups and membership based on organizational changes.

“Social media tools have moved interactions beyond simple status updates among friends to an era where we have real transparency and context around how work gets done in an organization,” Duguid said. “These informal interactions add a whole new depth of engagement, collaboration, and knowledge that can be built directly into workflows to improve efficiency and decision making.”

Nintex Yammer integration is available today to all existing Nintex Workflow customers through Nintex Live, a cloud platform that brings more capabilities to SharePoint by enabling customers to find, connect to, and consume cloud services.

“The SharePoint team has made it clear that 2013 is all about people, and these investments make workflow all about people, too,” said Mike Fitzmaurice, vice president of product technology for Nintex. “Moreover, they represent yet one more payoff from the cloud investments we’ve been making for the past two years.”

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-centric compute for the most data-intensive applications. Hyperconverged systems already in place can be revitalized with vendor-agnostic, PCIe-deployed, disaggregated approach to composable, maximizing the value of previous investments.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cloud capabilities.
