Today Glip, Inc., developer of Glip, the modern business messaging
platform used by thousands of teams and businesses worldwide, announced
integrations with industry leading applications Jira, Harvest, and
Github as the first phase in its integrations initiative. This new
capability unifies the communication of disparate services into a
cohesive conversation that results in richer context, easier
communication and better decisions. The result of surveying thousands of
its customers, Glip will introduce additional integrations in coming
weeks that further enhance its capabilities. Also announced today Glip

The Glip conversation platform is designed to improve team performance
by directly addressing its most important driver – team communication.
Research shows that 50% of team performance improvement is attributable
to the mode of communication. Glip allows teams and companies to
communicate faster, and get more done in less time because the work
produced lives in the conversation. Instead of jumping from tool to tool
to get things done while being flooded with email notifications and
convoluted “Reply Alls”, Glip contains the essential apps everyone
needs, from video conferencing to shared calendars, task management to
file sharing with automatic version control. Today Glip extends this
capability to include content and actions generated in other cloud
“Our vision has always been to disrupt business communications with
secure messaging that not only has built-in productivity tools, but also
integrates with other applications our customers use and love. The first
wave of integrations announced today is an example of our focus to drive
business value to our customers,” said Peter Pezaris, CEO Glip. “While
our core app tightly integrates modern business messaging with the
essential productivity tools, these partnered integrations extend Glip’s
benefits to other important activities performed by millions of people
every day. If you are a user of Jira, Harvest, or GitHub, you can bring
them into the Glip conversation and be more productive right away.”
David Chan, SVP Sales and Marketing of Engage3, and author of ‘The
Virtual Office: Success Tools for Entrepreneurs and Small Businesses’
added: “Glip is enabling our organization to easily operate as a
cohesive unit. Without sacrificing features, the intuitive design is
critical in our startup environment. We've integrated other platforms
into Glip, which has now become the backbone for our company’s internal
Sri Vemuri, Marketing Manager at Harvest says, ”Harvest integrations
help bring time tracking into your workflow––with Harvest and Glip, your
team can trigger their timers faster, and stay focused on the task at
Glip is also announcing today the availability of emoji, which makes
communication more powerful and engaging. Work should be fun with a
purpose. In addition to the many familiar ideograms included in the app,
any Glip user can upload and assign emoji of their own liking. Many
people create these characters to illustrate complex ideas, and they
have an extra benefit of adding fun to the conversation.
The Glip conversation platform is free to use for all users to access
for an unlimited time up to 10,000 posts, 5GB of storage, or 500 minutes
of video calls. Subscription plans start at $5/user/month or $50 per

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
