According to a Forrester Consulting study, more than three-quarters of respondents noted increased employee responsiveness and decision-making as a key benefit of deploying mobile solutions in the workplace. Nearly half also noted increased productivity, which is especially critical in sales where lost time can equate to lost deals.

“Salespeople are constantly on the move and in order to be effective, they need to be able to easily access pertinent customer information wherever they are,” said Christopher W. Cabrera, founder, president and CEO of Xactly Corporation. “With Xactly and, sales representatives are now able to stay connected with customers and aligned with their individual and corporate goals, regardless of where the job takes them.”

  • Compare their performance via team rankings

Ensuring seamless, intelligent viewing, the application automatically adjusts to the user’s specific device.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work.

While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...
The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
