Frost & Sullivan Commends Sprinklr for Integrated, Enterprise-Level Social Media Solution

The platform's layered architecture, modular approach, customizable metrics and integrated social infrastructure capabilities make it a world-class solution

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.

The notion of improving operational efficiency is conspicuously absent from the healthcare debate - neither Obamacare nor the newly proposed GOP plan discusses the impact that a step-function improvement in efficiency could have on access to healthcare (through more capacity), quality of healthcare services (through reduced wait times for patients) or cost (through better utilization of scarce, expensive assets).
The past few years have seen a huge increase in the amount of critical IT services that companies outsource to SaaS/IaaS/PaaS providers, be it security, storage, monitoring, or operations. Of course, along with any outsourcing to a service provider comes a Service Level Agreement (SLA) to ensure that the vendor is held financially responsible for any lapses in their service which affect the customer’s end users, and ultimately, their bottom line. SLAs can be very tricky to manage for a number ...
The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making r...
Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the bene...
The past few years have brought a sea change in the way applications are architected, developed, and consumed—increasing both the complexity of testing and the business impact of software failures. How can software testing professionals keep pace with modern application delivery, given the trends that impact both architectures (cloud, microservices, and APIs) and processes (DevOps, agile, and continuous delivery)? This is where continuous testing comes in. D
In a recent post, titled “10 Surprising Facts About Cloud Computing and What It Really Is”, Zac Johnson highlighted some interesting facts about cloud computing in the SMB marketplace: Cloud Computing is up to 40 times more cost-effective for an SMB, compared to running its own IT system. 94% of SMBs have experienced security benefits in the cloud that they didn’t have with their on-premises service
There is a huge demand for responsive, real-time mobile and web experiences, but current architectural patterns do not easily accommodate applications that respond to events in real time.

In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ryland Degnan, a Senior Software Engineer on the Netflix Edge Platform team, will discuss how by leveraging a reactive stream-based protocol,...
Admiral Calcote - also known as Lee Calcote (@lcalcote) or the Ginger Geek to his friends - gave a presentation entitled Characterizing and Contrasting Container Orchestrators at the 2016 All Day DevOps conference. Okay, he isn't really an admiral - nor does anyone call him that - but he used the title admiral to describe what container orchestrators do, relating it to an admiral directing a fleet of container ships. You could also say that they are like the conductor of an orchestra, directing...
Our work, both with clients and with tools, has lead us to wonder how it is that organizations are handling compliance issues in the cloud. The big cloud vendors offer compliance for their infrastructure, but the shared responsibility model requires that you take certain steps to meet compliance requirements. Which lead us to start poking around a little more. We wanted to get a picture of what was available, and how it was being used. There is a lot of fluidity in this space, as in all things c...
The goal of Microservices is to improve software delivery speed and increase system safety as scale increases. Microservices being modular these are faster to change and enables an evolutionary architecture where systems can change, as the business needs change. Microservices can scale elastically and by being service oriented can enable APIs natively. Microservices also reduce implementation and release cycle time and enables continuous delivery. This paper provides a logical overview of the Mi...
Gaining visibility in today’s sprawling cloud infrastructure is complex and laborious, involving drilling down into tools offered by various cloud services providers. Enterprise IT organizations need smarter and effective tools at their disposal in order to address this pertinent problem. Gaining a 360 - degree view of the cloud costs requires collection and analysis of the cost data across all cloud infrastructures used inside an enterprise.
