As NetSuite partners for the past decade, these seven firms have helped to pioneer cloud business management to transform business operations at thousands of small, mid-sized and enterprise organizations. 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. Leading NetSuite solution providers have reported double- and triple-digit growth over the past several years, as more organizations upgrade from disparate, on-premise applications such as Microsoft Dynamics GP (Great Plains), Sage and QuickBooks for the superior efficiency, visibility and scalability for business growth achievable in the NetSuite cloud. 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.
"We're honored and gratified to commemorate our solution provider partners as they mark a decade of distinction in delivering transformative cloud solutions," said Craig West, Vice President of Americas Channel Sales at NetSuite.

The causality question behind Conway’s Law is less about how changing software organizations can lead to better software, but rather how companies can best leverage changing technology in order to transform their organizations. Hints at how to answer this question surprisingly come from the world of devops – surprising because the focus of devops is ostensibly on building and deploying better software more quickly. Be that as it may, there’s no question that technology change is a primary fac...

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Jake Moshenko, Product Manager at CoreOS, examined how CoreOS + Quay.io fit into the development lifecycle from pushing gi...

[slides] Policy in Hybrid Cloud By @DerekCollison | @CloudExpo #API #DevOps #Containers #Microservices
Enterprises are turning to the hybrid cloud to drive greater scalability and cost-effectiveness. But enterprises should beware as the definition of “policy” varies wildly. Some say it’s the ability to control the resources apps’ use or where the apps run. Others view policy as governing the permissions and delivering security. Policy is all of that and more. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Derek Collison, founder and CEO of Apcera, explained what policy is, he showed how policy should be arch...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...

Software is eating the world. The more it eats, the bigger the mountain of data and wealth of valuable insights to digest and act on.

[slides] Workloads and Public Cloud at @CloudExpo By @utollwi | @ProfitBricksUSA #DevOps #Containers #Microservices
Public Cloud IaaS started its life in the developer and startup communities and has grown rapidly to a $20B+ industry, but it still pales in comparison to how much is spent worldwide on IT: $3.6 trillion. In fact, there are 8.6 million data centers worldwide, the reality is many small and medium sized business have server closets and colocation footprints filled with servers and storage gear. While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...

One of the hottest new terms in the world of enterprise computing is the microservice. Starting with the seminal 2014 article by James Lewis and Martin Fowler of ThoughtWorks, microservices have taken on a life of their own – and as with any other overhyped term, they have generated their fair share of confusion as well. Perhaps the best definition of microservices comes from Janakiram MSV, Principal at Janakiram & Associates. “Microservices are fine-grained units of execution. They are designe...
