InsideView Private Connection Cloud Integrates Employee Social Networks Into a Private Corporate Network

Sales Intelligence Leader Introduces Secure Connection Sharing, Integrated With Sales Workflow

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/03/12 -- InsideView, the sales intelligence leader, today showcased the InsideView Private Connection Cloud, a powerful extension to InsideView Connections. InsideView Private Connections allow your employees to connect their personal networks into your corporate connection network, creating a much more powerful, but private asset that can be leveraged by all employees to penetrate accounts, win more business, and strengthen customer relationships. Unlike connections created on public social networks, which are visible to everyone including competitors, InsideView Private Connections are only available within your company and can only be leveraged using a permission-based process managed through the InsideView application.

"Personal contacts within Facebook, LinkedIn or Outlook are a very valuable source of information which can be used by sales and marketing professionals to get more referrals," said Umberto Milletti, CEO of InsideView. "Our new Private Connection Cloud reveals a broader network of connections which remain private to the user and his or her organization. When used together, the Private Connection Cloud and our other sales intelligence features enable sales and marketing personnel to uncover more relationships to the right person, find meaningful conversation starters and engage via warm introductions. The result is better sales and happier customer engagements."

Sales professionals have always used personal connections to improve results. This new capability further extends the value of InsideView Connections, which are unique in the industry in their ability to integrate personal networks, customer relationships, executive team and board member connections into existing processes and systems, including all the major CRM platforms. Research from The Journal of Consumer Research* revealed that sales calls are more than five times as likely to be returned when a personal connection exists between the caller and the sales person such as a common friend or professional connection. Additionally, people are more likely to make a purchase and feel good about the purchase if the relationship between themselves and their sales rep is substantial and reputable. Tapping into corporate connections can also strengthen existing customer relationships in order to drive customer retention and account growth.

Network Hardware Resale, a valued InsideView customer, leverages the solution to connect sales executives with prospects to optimize their effectiveness. Michael Lodato, senior vice president of sales and marketing commented, "Before InsideView, we divided our sales team strictly by geography. Now, we are able to identify who has the richest set of contacts within a certain set of targets, and assign sales leads to the individual with the best connections. The result, since we started the program nearly a year ago, is increased sales and a stronger pipeline. Now, with the ability to upload personal connections from other databases, and link them to target companies, we expect to see our success rate grow even further."

The InsideView Private Connection Cloud is a standard feature, available now to all PRO and TEAM users of InsideView at no additional cost. Access it today by uploading your personal connections within InsideView.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.
With an estimated 50 billion devices connected to the Internet by 2020, several industries will begin to expand their capabilities for retaining end point data at the edge to better utilize the range of data types and sheer volume of M2M data generated by the Internet of Things. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and President of Infobright, will discuss the infrastructures businesses will need to implement to handle this explosion of data by providing specific use cases for filte...
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

Cognitive Computing is becoming the foundation for a new generation of solutions that have the potential to transform business. Unlike traditional approaches to building solutions, a cognitive computing approach allows the data to help determine the way applications are designed.

Hurwitz, President and CEO of Hurwitz & ...

Companies can harness IoT and predictive analytics to sustain business continuity; predict and manage site performance during emergencies; minimize expensive reactive maintenance; and forecast equipment and maintenance budgets and expenditures. Providing cost-effective, uninterrupted service is challenging, particularly for organizations with geographically dispersed operations.
As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

Sensors and effectors of IoT are solving problems in new ways, but small businesses have been slow to join the quantified world. They’ll need information from IoT using applications as varied as the businesses themselves. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Roger Meike, Distinguished Engineer, Director of Technology Innovation at Intuit, showed how IoT manufacturers can use open standards, public APIs and custom apps to enable the Quantified Small Business. He used a Raspberry Pi to connect sensors...
Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
Advances in technology and ubiquitous connectivity have made the utilization of a dispersed workforce more common.

Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Seth Oxenhorn, Vice President of Business Development & Alliances at FalconStor, will discuss how a truly heterogeneous software-defined storage approach can add value to legacy platforms and heterogeneous environments. The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved effi...
