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."

Blockchain has shifted from hype to reality across many industries including Financial Services, Supply Chain, Retail, Healthcare and Government. While traditional tech and crypto organizations are generally male dominated, women have embraced blockchain technology from its inception. This is no more evident than at companies where women occupy many of the blockchain roles and leadership positions. Join this panel to hear three women in blockchain share their experience and their POV on the future of blockchain.
Concerns about security, downtime and latency, budgets, and general unfamiliarity with cloud technologies continue to create hesitation for many organizations that truly need to be developing a cloud strategy. Hybrid cloud solutions are helping to elevate those concerns by enabling the combination or orchestration of two or more platforms, including on-premise infrastructure, private clouds and/or third-party, public cloud services. This gives organizations more comfort to begin their digital transformation without a complete overhaul of their existing infrastructure - serving as a sort of "missing link" for transition to cloud utilization.
Cloud Storage 2.0 has brought many innovations, including the availability of cloud storage services that are less expensive and much faster than previous generations of cloud storage. Cloud Storage 2.0 has also delivered new and faster methods for migrating your premises storage environment to the cloud and the concept of multi-cloud. This session will provide technical details on Cloud Storage 2.0 and the methods used to efficiently migrate from premises-to-cloud storage. This session will also discuss best practices for implementing multi-cloud environments.
In very short order, the term "Blockchain" has lost an incredible amount of meaning. With too many jumping on the bandwagon, the market is inundated with projects and use cases that miss the real potential of the technology. We have to begin removing Blockchain from the conversation and ground ourselves in the motivating principles of the technology itself; whether it is consumer privacy, data ownership, trust or even participation in the global economy, the world is faced with serious problems that this technology could ultimately help us in at least partially solving. But if we do not unpack what is real and what is not, we can lose sight of the potential. In this presentation, John Bates-who leads data science, machine learning and AI in the Adobe Analytics business unit-will present his 4-prong model of the general areas where Blockchain can have a real impact and the specific use...
FinTech is a disruptive innovation that denotes the adoption of technologies that have changed how traditional financial services work. While FinTech is now embedded deeply into the financial services ecosystem, the rise of digital age has paved way to FinTech 2.0 - which is rolling out innovative solutions through emerging technologies at a disruptive pace while maintaining the tenets of security and compliances. Blockchain as a technology has started seeing pilot adoption in FinTech around trade settlements, fraud detection and would need to sort out few of the technology challenges primarily around transaction time, interoperability with existing systems before being fully adopted into mainstream systems. While private blockchain adoption by Banks have taken shape, the challenge of real time transaction settlement, preventing double spend attacks need to be addressed.
