MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Aug. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the social media monitoring and analytics market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Sprinklr with the 2014 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation Leadership. Sprinklr's solution is a comprehensive social relationship platform that is more fully-featured than competing social media tools, providing more capabilities, better integration support and customizable performance management.
Sprinklr is attracting large customers who have already experimented with point solutions, as well as those who begin their social media programs by acknowledging their need for an enterprise-scale implementation. Unlike other companies that only offer social media listening and analysis of monitored feeds and crawl data, Sprinklr delivers a more complete solution by offering 20 well-integrated modules.
"The Sprinklr platform is designed to support customers' entire cycle of growth, from social listening and engagement to a fully collaborative social business environment," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Analyst Sandy Borthick. "Sprinklr enables customized metrics and performance management of social flows between the enterprise and its customers. Sprinklr also meets the FINRA, SEC and AICPA SOC guidelines for data retention and compliance."
Unlike many of its peers, Sprinklr integrates directly with most existing enterprise software systems, and the company will develop application program interfaces (APIs) specifically for customers who need additional connections. It also enables custom tagging and tracking of inbound and outbound social interactions, so that service-level agreement (SLA) metrics can be applied and key performance indicators (KPIs) for social responsiveness can be measured.
Instead of rushing a monitoring product to market in the early days of social media, Sprinklr spent more than two years building its solution. The deliberate product construction enabled Sprinklr to deliver a product that reflects its conviction that the number of customer touchpoints within the organization is bound to increase, and that managing social conversations that involve these touchpoints will be as important as managing sales- and service-oriented social media interactions.
In addition to enabling the comprehensive tracking and management of conversations, Sprinklr also supports the next steps enterprises will need to take as they socialize additional business processes. Its platform provides a business framework to manage social channels, social community (or context), social collaboration (both internally and externally), social campaigns (outbound earned, owned and paid media), and content.
Sprinklr runs on the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, using multiple server instances and replicated databases. It ensures business continuity and disaster recovery through systems provisioned across numerous geographic regions with fully replicated backups. Customers who wish to store their own backups can arrange for secured feeds from the AWS cloud.
"Sprinklr has positioned its product to out-compete point solutions by offering a more complete roster of social media monitoring, engagement, management and integration modules, and by articulating a vision for the social future of business practices and processes," noted Borthick. "Enterprise customers are likely to favor Sprinklr over the competition because of its comprehensive approach and fully developed solution."
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has developed an innovative product by leveraging leading-edge technologies. The award recognizes the value-added features/benefits of the product and the increased ROI potential that it offers to customers, which, in turn, increases customer satisfaction and drives higher market penetration.
Frost & Sullivan's Best Practices Awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for outstanding achievement in areas that include leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research.
Sprinklr provides the technology that enables large brands to manage customer experiences at every social touchpoint across teams, departments, divisions, and geographies. Unlike tools and platforms, Sprinklr is the only fully integrated social relationship infrastructure, ensuring that the voice of the customer is heard throughout the enterprise. Called "the most powerful technology in the market" by a leading analyst, Sprinklr is headquartered in New York City and serves more than 500 clients worldwide including Microsoft, Intel, Virgin America, IHG, and 4 of the top 5 US banks.

You hear the terms “subscription economy” and “subscription commerce” all the time. And with good reason. Subscription-based monetization is transforming business as we know it. But what about usage? Where’s the “consumption economy”? Turns out, it’s all around us. When most people think of usage-based billing, the example that probably comes to mind first is metered public utilities — water, gas and electric. Phone services, especially mobile, might come next. Then maybe taxis. And that’s ab...

This month I want to revisit supporting infrastructure and datacenter environments. I have touched (some would say rant) upon this topic since my post in April 2014 called "Take a Holistic View of Support". My thoughts and views on this topic have not changed at all: it's critical for any organization to have a holistic, comprehensive strategy and view of how they support their IT infrastructure and datacenter environments. In fact, I believe it's even more critical today then it was a year ago ...

As a group of concepts, DevOps has converged on several prominent themes including continuous software delivery, automation, and configuration management (CM). These integral pieces often form the pillars of an organization’s DevOps efforts, even as other bigger pieces like overarching best practices and guidelines are still being tried and tested. Being that DevOps is a relatively new paradigm - movement - methodology - [insert your own label here], standards around it have yet to be codified a...

For those of us that have been practicing SOA for over a decade, it's surprising that there's so much interest in microservices. In fairness microservices don't look like the vendor play that was early SOA in the early noughties. But experienced SOA practitioners everywhere will be wondering if microservices is actually a good thing. You see microservices is basically an SOA pattern that inherits all the well-known SOA principles and adds characteristics that address the use of SOA for distribut...

Microservice architectures are the new hotness, even though they aren't really all that different (in principle) from the paradigm described by SOA (which is dead, or not dead, depending on whom you ask). One of the things this decompositional approach to application architecture does is encourage developers and operations (some might even say DevOps) to re-evaluate scaling strategies. In particular, the notion is forwarded that an application should be built to scale and then infrastructure sho...

Microservices are the result of decomposing applications. That may sound a lot like SOA, but SOA was based on an object-oriented (noun) premise; that is, services were built around an object - like a customer - with all the necessary operations (functions) that go along with it. SOA was also founded on a variety of standards (most of them coming out of OASIS) like SOAP, WSDL, XML and UDDI. Microservices have no standards (at least none deriving from a standards body or organization) and can be b...

Our guest on the podcast this week is Jason Bloomberg, President at Intellyx. When we build services we want them to be lightweight, stateless and scalable while doing one thing really well. In today's cloud world, we're revisiting what to takes to make a good service in the first place. Listen in to learn why following "the book" doesn't necessarily mean that you're solving key business problems.

Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

Even though it’s now Microservices Journal, long-time fans of SOA World Magazine can take comfort in the fact that the URL – soa.sys-con.com – remains unchanged. And that’s no mistake, as microservices are really nothing more than a new and improved take on the Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) best practices we struggled to hammer out over the last decade. Skeptics, however, might say that this change is nothing more than an exercise in buzzword-hopping. SOA is passé, and now that people are ...
