SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/05/14 -- Former SVP of Sales Productivity at Salesforce.com, Elay Cohen, today announced the release of SALESHOOD: How Winning Sales Managers Inspire Sales Teams to Succeed. SalesHood is the first book that addresses the broken, one-size-fits all sales productivity model with a new collaborative framework that is relevant and immediately usable. Based on Elay's eight years of sales leadership at Salesforce.com that played a large part in accelerating the company's growth to a $3 billion-plus enterprise, SalesHood is the playbook for sales managers -- empowering them to think like CEOs and act like entrepreneurs.
In SalesHood, Cohen shares how sales managers can build an inspired, engaged team -- equipping them with the tools they need to drive up sales productivity and grow the business. He reveals, among many other lessons, how you can nurture a winning sales culture; build world-class training programs that encourage salespeople to learn from each other; and execute sales processes, playbooks, and deals in a way that gives your salespeople the winning edge.
"After working with thousands of organizations, it became clear to me that one key player was best positioned to accelerate growth in companies: the first-line sales manager," said Elay Cohen, author, SalesHood. "This book centers on empowering sales leaders through a community of peers and shared experiences -- ultimately enabling sales managers to lead their own sales programs as entrepreneurs would."

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...

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...

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
