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.

20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. Cloud computing is now being embraced by a majority of enterprises of all sizes. Yesterday's debate about public vs. private has transformed into the reality of hybrid cloud: a recent survey shows that 74% of enterprises have a hybrid cloud strategy.
Infrastructure is widely available, but who’s managing inbound/outbound traffic? Data is created, stored, and managed online – who is protecting it and how? In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Jaeson Yoo, SVP of Business Development at Penta Security Systems Inc., discussed how to keep any and all infrastructure clean, safe, and efficient by monitoring and filtering all malicious HTTP/HTTPS traffic at the OSI Layer 7. Stop attacks and web intruders before they can enter your network.
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...

Regulatory requirements exist to promote the controlled sharing of information, while protecting the privacy and/or security of the information. Regulations for each type of information have their own set of rules, policies, and guidelines. Cloud Service Providers (CSP) are faced with increasing demand for services at decreasing prices. Demonstrating and maintaining compliance with regulations is a nontrivial task and doing so against numerous sets of regulatory requirements can be daunting task...
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control.

The cloud promises new levels of agility and cost-savings for Big Data, data warehousing and analytics.

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.

By adopting simple, platform independent DevOps strategies, you can accelerate your move to the cloud. Spoiler Alert: He also makes sure you don’t...
President Obama recently announced the launch of a new national awareness campaign to "encourage more Americans to move beyond passwords – adding an extra layer of security like a fingerprint or codes sent to your cellphone."

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?

How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
