These partners, along with the other members of the NetSuite Solution Provider Partner Program, have been instrumental in helping to drive NetSuite's strong growth, now numbering more than 16,000 customer companies and subsidiaries around the world, as well as helping to make cloud business management among the hottest IT and business trends over the past decade.

With vertical expertise and in-depth knowledge, these partners use the SuiteCloud platform to customize NetSuite to meet unique business requirements, helping to drive cloud computing momentum in such industries as manufacturing, software, wholesale distribution, Ecommerce, services and others, as well as in high-growth markets of Latin America and Asia.
The NetSuite Solution Provider Program is the industry's first cloud channel partner program and unites hundreds of channel partners and their cloud opportunities with industry-leading margins and incentives (NetSuite SP 100) to grow their businesses. As cloud computing has become one of the hottest business trends, with cloud ERP leading business demand, NetSuite has seen the ongoing migration of channel partners representing on-premise products like Sage and Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains to NetSuite's superior cloud business management suite. Designed to help solution providers transform their business model to fully capitalize on the revenue growth opportunity of the NetSuite cloud, the NetSuite Solution Provider Program delivers them unprecedented services that begin during recruitment and range from business planning, sales, marketing and PS enablement, to training and education. The NetSuite Solution Provider Program was named this year to CRN's 2013 Partner Program Guide with a 5-Star Partner rating for the third consecutive year, spearheaded by Craig West, who has won CRN's Channel Chief honor 5 years in a row.

As applications are promoted from the development environment to the CI or the QA environment and then into the production environment, it is very common for the configuration settings to be changed as the code is promoted. For example, the settings for the database connection pools are typically lower in development environment than the QA/Load Testing environment. The primary reason for the existence of the configuration setting differences is to enhance application performance. However, occas...

When scaling agile / Scrum, we invariable run into the alignment vs autonomy problem. In short: you cannot have autonomous self directing teams if they have no clue in what direction they should go, or even shorter: Alignment breeds autonomy. But how do we create alignment? and what tools can we use to quickly evaluate if what we want to do is part of the mission or better left out? Niel Nickolaisen created the Purpose Alignment model and I use it with innovation labs in large enterprises to de...

Throughout history, various leaders have risen up and tried to unify the world by conquest. Fortunately, none of their plans have succeeded. The world goes on just fine with each country ruling itself; no single ruler is necessary. That’s how it is with the container platform ecosystem, as well. There’s no need for one all-powerful, all-encompassing container platform. Think about any other technology sector out there – there are always multiple solutions in every space. The same goes for conta...

Let's recap what we learned from the previous chapters in the series: episode 1 and episode 2. We learned that a good rollback mechanism cannot be designed without having an intimate knowledge of the application architecture, the nature of your components and their dependencies. Now that we know what we have to restore and in which order, the question is how?

If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

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?

Analysis of 25,000 applications reveals 6.8% of packages/components used included known defects. Organizations standardizing on components between 2 - 3 years of age can decrease defect rates substantially. Open source and third-party packages/components live at the heart of high velocity software development organizations. Today, an average of 106 packages/components comprise 80 - 90% of a modern application, yet few organizations have visibility into what components are used where.
