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.

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 ...
