A leading provider of open source database software and support services, Ingres is a well-known adopter of the Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) model -- currently with 98 percent of its core IT infrastructure residing in the cloud. The fast-growing company faced a formidable array of sales compensation management challenges, such as handling multi-currency payouts, attempting to maximize compensation process accuracy and productivity, and ensuring SOX compliance.

"We soon became too mature and global for a solution like that to be effective," claims Doug Harr, chief information officer, Ingres. "Fortunately, the SaaS industry was on its own maturity curve, and 100-percent SaaS-based sales compensation management solutions were an attractive option. On-demand was very clearly the way we wanted to go to leverage advantages in cost, time to market and scalability."

By adding the Xactly Incent on-demand application to its SaaS arsenal, and replacing its manual process for managing incentive sales compensation, Ingres has successfully tackled these challenges and more, while achieving new levels of operational efficiency and sales performance.

"Xactly Incent is exactly the kind of application we wanted for Ingres," says Harr. "It integrates easily and inexpensively with other applications, including other SaaS solutions, it's extensible and cost-effective to scale, and it implements in a fraction of the time required by on-premise solutions. If that isn't enough, it provides tremendous cost savings over our legacy software for sales compensation management, both in upfront costs and annual maintenance fees."

Concludes Harr, "As CIO, it's my goal to take maximum advantage of vendor domain expertise, and not try to reinvent that on my own servers. Xactly has provided us with the most reasonable implementation I've seen in the compensation environment in 20 years."

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, will discuss how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
