Eureka! - Leading UK Solution Provider Joins NetSuite Solution Provider Programme

Eureka Solutions to Offer NetSuite to Meet Increasing Demand for Cloud-Based Solutions

LONDON, Nov. 29, 2012­ /PRNewswire/ -- NetSuite Inc., (NYSE: N), the industry's leading provider of cloud-based financials / ERP software suites, today announced that Eureka Solutions, an award-winning business management software and consulting services firm, has joined the NetSuite Solution Provider Programme to deliver cloud-based business software to its customers in the UK and Ireland. Eureka, founded in 1996, supports businesses across a range of industries spanning retail, wholesale, professional services, IT and the charity sectors.

Eureka's traditional focus is on-premise Sage applications. The partnership with NetSuite enables Eureka to provide its growing prospect and customer base with a viable cloud computing offering to manage their growing businesses.  As part of the NetSuite Solution Provider Programme, Eureka can focus on selling, implementing and supporting NetSuite cloud ERP / financials, CRM, SuiteCommerce and supply chain solutions.

Having previously only worked with Sage, Eureka needed to extend its reach beyond on-premise applications; responding to an increasing customer demand for cloud-based business management solutions. By partnering with NetSuite, Eureka will be able to offer access to a single, integrated business management solution which provides businesses with a complete view of all operations within their company, while streamlining back-office functionality. Operating solely in the cloud, NetSuite's solution also enables businesses to benefit from lower overhead costs, while reducing IT hardware restrictions, removing version lock and upgrade hassles, and providing anywhere and anytime access for remote users, and with subscription-based pricing, it gives organisations greater flexibility over their IT systems to support rapid growth.   

"We've been helping businesses harness the right IT to operate more profitably for the last 16 years and have seen things change dramatically. Our customers are increasingly demanding things from their applications that only cloud computing can deliver," said Alistair Livingstone, Managing Director, Eureka Solutions. "Many businesses now expect solutions to be cloud-based and are looking for an established product which offers a fully integrated suite of business applications in the cloud. Listening to these business' requirements played a key role in our decision to partner with NetSuite."

There were a number of factors which led to Eureka choosing to partner with NetSuite including its extensive experience in the cloud computing industry, its long run of customer success stories, its prominent position within the market and the flexibility of its solutions. Livingstone continued: "The power of NetSuite's solution enables us to expand our customer base from small and mid-sized businesses to larger enterprises. What's more, the simplicity of its technology enables us to spend less time implementing the software and more time offering our customers added consultation and business value. An increasing number of customers are looking to NetSuite to avoid costly software updates and expensive on-premise hardware and software maintenance."

"Eureka's addition to the NetSuite Solution Provider Programme is yet another positive signal of the growing desire for cloud computing across the business community", said Paul Auffermann, Managing Director, NetSuite EMEA. "This partnership provides huge benefits for Eureka and NetSuite, as well as companies in the UK and Ireland who are keen to leverage the many advantages of cloud-based business software. Eureka is a respected software and services provider who has helped hundreds of businesses to innovate and grow. We are very happy to welcome Eureka to the cloud and believe it is the start of a strong and long-term relationship."

Cloud Expo Breaking News
More and more enterprises today are doing business by opening up their data and applications through APIs. Though forward-thinking and strategic, exposing APIs also increases the surface area for potential attack by hackers. To benefit from APIs while staying secure, enterprises and security architects need to continue to develop a deep understanding about API security and how it differs from traditional web application security or mobile application security. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Sachin Agarwal, VP of Product Marketing and Strategy at SOA Software, will walk you through the various aspects of how an API could be potentially exploited. He will discuss the necessary best practices to secure your data and enterprise applications while continue continuing to support your business’s digital initiatives.
The revolution that happened in the server universe over the past 15 years has resulted in an eco-system that is more open, more democratically innovative and produced better results in technically challenging dimensions like scale. The underpinnings of the revolution were common hardware, standards based APIs (ex. POSIX) and a strict adherence to layering and isolation between applications, daemons and kernel drivers/modules which allowed multiple types of development happen in parallel without hindering others. Put simply, today's server model is built on a consistent x86 platform with few surprises in its core components. A kernel abstracts away the platform, so that applications and daemons are decoupled from the hardware. In contrast, networking equipment is still stuck in the mainframe era. Today, networking equipment is a single appliance, including hardware, OS, applications and user interface come as a monolithic entity from a single vendor. Switching between different vendor'...
You use an agile process; your goal is to make your organization more agile. What about your data infrastructure? The truth is, today’s databases are anything but agile – they are effectively static repositories that are cumbersome to work with, difficult to change, and cannot keep pace with application demands. Performance suffers as a result, and it takes far longer than it should to deliver on new features and capabilities needed to make your organization competitive. As your application and business needs change, data repositories and structures get outmoded rapidly, resulting in increased work for application developers and slow performance for end users. Further, as data sizes grow into the Big Data realm, this problem is exacerbated and becomes even more difficult to address. A seemingly simple schema change can take hours (or more) to perform, and as requirements evolve the disconnect between existing data structures and actual needs diverge.
Cloud backup and recovery services are critical to safeguarding an organization’s data and ensuring business continuity when technical failures and outages occur. With so many choices, how do you find the right provider for your specific needs? In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Daniel Jacobson, Technology Manager at BUMI, will outline the key factors including backup configurations, proactive monitoring, data restoration, disaster recovery drills, security, compliance and data center resources. Aside from the technical considerations, the secret sauce in identifying the best vendor is the level of focus, expertise and specialization of their engineering team and support group, and how they monitor your day-to-day backups, provide recommendations, and guide you through restores when necessary.
Cloud scalability and performance should be at the heart of every successful Internet venture. The infrastructure needs to be resilient, flexible, and fast – it’s best not to get caught thinking about architecture until the middle of an emergency, when it's too late. In his interactive, no-holds-barred session at 14th Cloud Expo, Phil Jackson, Development Community Advocate for SoftLayer, will dive into how to design and build-out the right cloud infrastructure.

Chief Security Officers (CSO), CIOs and IT Directors are all concerned with providing a secure environment from which their business can innovate and customers can safely consume without the fear of Distributed Denial of Service attacks. To be successful in today's hyper-connected world, the enterprise needs to leverage the capabilities of the web and be ready to innovate without fear of DDoS attacks, concerns about application security and other threats. Organizations face great risk from increasingly frequent and sophisticated attempts to render web properties unavailable, and steal intellectual property or personally identifiable information. Layered security best practices extend security beyond the data center, delivering DDoS protection and maintaining site performance in the face of fast-changing threats.

Performance is the intersection of power, agility, control, and choice. If you value performance, and more specifically consistent performance, you need to look beyond simple virtualized compute. Many factors need to be considered to create a truly performant environment. In his General Session at 14th Cloud Expo, Marc Jones, Vice President of Product Innovation for SoftLayer, will explain how to take advantage of a multitude of compute options and platform features to make cloud the cornerstone of your online presence.
Are you interested in accelerating innovation, simplifying deployments, reducing complexity, and lowering development costs? The cloud is changing the face of application development and deployment, with enterprise-grade infrastructure and platform services making it possible for you to build and rapidly scale enterprise applications. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Gene Eun, Sr. Director, Oracle Cloud at Oracle, will discuss the latest solutions and strategies for application developers and enterprise IT organizations to leverage Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) and Platform as a Service (PaaS) to build and deploy modern business applications in the cloud.
Hybrid cloud refers to the federation of a public and private cloud environment for the purpose of extending the elastic and flexibility of compute, storage and network capabilities, in an on-demand, pay-as-you go basis. The hybrid approach allows a business to take advantage of the scalability and cost-effectiveness that a public cloud computing environment offers without exposing mission-critical applications and data to third-party vulnerabilities. Hybrid cloud environments involve complex management challenges. First, organizations struggle to maintain control over the resources that lie outside of their managed IT scope. They also need greater infrastructure visibility to help reduce maintenance costs and ensure that their company data and resources are properly handled and secured.
As more applications and services move "to the cloud" (public or on-premise), cloud environments are increasingly adopting and building out traditional enterprise features. This in turn is enabling and encouraging cloud adoption from enterprise users. In many ways the definition is blurring as features like continuous operation, geo-distribution or on-demand capacity become the norm. At NuoDB we're involved in both building enterprise software and using enterprise cloud capabilities. In his session at 14th Cloud Expo, Seth Proctor, CTO of NuoDB, Inc., will cover experiences from building, deploying and using enterprise services and suggest some ways to approach moving enterprise applications into a cloud model.
