Since May 2006, when Xactly Incent went live on the AppExchange, Xactly has signed a number of customers -- including CNET, NetQoS, QuoteRetriever.com, BlueArc Corporation, PostX, WageWorks, Inc., Sylantro Systems, Riverbed, F5, Linksys, DoubleClick, Cablevision, Powerlight, Speakeasy, SonicWALL, Procuri and SchoolDude.com -- that are either directly attributable to lead generation via the AppExchange or who are who accessing Xactly Incent by way of the AppExchange. These businesses -- representing software and technology, media and entertainment, financial services, technology services, manufacturing and distribution, telecom and education -- now benefit from sales compensation management within their Salesforce implementations.

"AppExchange has proven itself to be an excellent marketing channel and lead generation vehicle that complements our direct selling efforts," said Karen Steele, Xactly vice president of marketing. "Salesforce.com customers are realizing tremendous synergies and business efficiencies by combining on-demand CRM and on-demand sales compensation management. Xactly is fundamentally changing the way businesses manage sales compensation and motivate sales reps to increase sales productivity and profits."

Xactly Incent for AppExchange is used by sales and finance executives, compensation analysts, sales operations and sales professionals. Xactly Incent's rules-based architecture gives companies the flexibility to easily create and manage any type of compensation plan with minimum initial investment and low cost of ownership.

"Sales compensation management and CRM go hand-in-hand, so it's no surprise that customers are deploying Xactly Incent with Salesforce," said Matt Holleran, vice president, AppExchange partners, salesforce.com. "The tight integration Xactly provides with Salesforce via the AppExchange is a significant benefit to our customers."

"Xactly provides tremendous business value by enabling salesforce.com customers to immediately extend their investment in Salesforce by integrating with Xactly Incent," said Jeff Kaplan, THINKstrategies, founder and managing director. "The combination of on-demand CRM and on-demand sales compensation is a powerful catalyst for driving sales performance and for motivating sales teams to sell more."

Xactly Incent's patent-pending Incentive Estimator provides Salesforce customers with the ability to run "what-if" scenarios based on Salesforce opportunities or estimated sales to calculate potential commission and bonus estimates and payments before, during and after a sale. From Xactly Incent, customers can quickly access the Salesforce opportunities of interest by using filters on information such as date and probability of closure.

Xactly is the first and only company completely focused on delivering a 100% on-demand sales compensation management solution. It is also the first and only company to deliver a true multi-tenant solution in a SAS 70 Type II certified environment. This single-minded approach enables Xactly to minimize hardware and software infrastructure costs -- savings that are then passed on to customers -- and accelerate the process by which it delivers new features and functionality.

I’ve been thinking a bit about microservices (μServices) recently. My immediate reaction is to think: “Isn’t this just yet another new term for the same stuff, Web Services->SOA->APIs->Microservices?” Followed shortly by the thought, “well yes it is, but there are some important differences/distinguishing factors.” Microservices is an evolutionary paradigm born out of the need for simplicity (i.e., get away from the ESB) and alignment with agile (think DevOps) and scalable (think Containerizati...
There’s a lot of discussion around managing outages in production via the likes of DevOps principles and the corresponding software development lifecycles that does enable higher quality output from development, however, one cannot lay all blame for “bugs” and failures at the feet of those responsible for coding and development. As developers incorporate features and benefits of these paradigm shift, there is a learning curve and a point of not-knowing-what-is-not-known. Sometimes, the only way ...
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...
How can you compare one technology or tool to its competitors? Usually, there is no objective comparison available. So how do you know which is better? Eclipse or IntelliJ IDEA? Java EE or Spring? C# or Java? All you can usually find is a holy war and biased comparisons on vendor sites. But luckily, sometimes, you can find a fair comparison. How does this come to be? By having it co-authored by the stakeholders. The binary repository comparison matrix is one of those rare resources. It is edite...
Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

The 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 17th International Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA - announces that its Call for Papers is open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In his session at Dev...
Amazon, Google and Facebook are household names in part because of their mastery of Big Data. But what about organizations without billions of dollars to spend on Big Data tools - how can they extract value from their data? In his session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Ali Ghodsi, Co-Founder and Head of Engineering at Databricks, discussed how the zero management cost and scalability of the cloud is addressing the challenges and pain points that data engineers face when working with Big Data. He also s...

EDB is the largest provider of Postgres software and services that provides enterprise-class performance and scalability and the open source freedom to divert budget from more costly traditiona...
The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session a...
I read an insightful article this morning from Bernard Golden on DZone discussing the DevOps conundrum facing many enterprises today – is it better to build your own DevOps tools or go commercial? For Golden, the question arose from his observations at a number of DevOps Days events he has attended, where typically the audience is composed of startup professionals: “I have to say, though, that a typical feature of most presentations is a recitation of the various open source products and compo...

Born out of proven success in agile development, cloud computing, and process automation, DevOps is a macro trend you cannot afford to miss. From showcase success stories from early adopters and web-scale businesses, DevOps is expanding to organizations of all sizes, including the...
Node.js and io.js are increasingly being used to run JavaScript on the server side for many types of applications, such as websites, real-time messaging and controllers for small devices with limited resources. For DevOps it is crucial to monitor the whole application stack and Node.js is rapidly becoming an important part of the stack in many organizations. Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, S...
This is the final installment of the six-part series Microservices and PaaS. It seems like forever since I attended Adrian Cockroft's meetup focusing on microservices. It's actually only been a couple of months, but much has happened since then: countless articles, meetups, and conference sessions focusing on microservices have been delivered, many meetings and design efforts at companies moving towards a microservices-based approach have been endured, and five installments of this blog series ...
There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing. Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...
Bill Doerrfeld at Nordic APIs has written today about how APIs are evolving the B2B landscape. This is a particularly interesting article for me, because my personal background is working for an EDI provider, where I linked EDI processes from the private network to the Internet, over 15 years ago. Vordel was founded to allow new Web Services APIs to be used for B2B. Axway, a B2B software company, acquired Vordel in 2012 to link B2B with Web APIs. This caused a domino effect, with other API Manag...
