InsideSales.com's popular virtual summits are quickly becoming must-attend industry sales events. In March, the Sales Acceleration Summit -- the first of two virtual events in 2014 -- garnered more than 20,000 registrants, 8,000 post-event attendees and 6,000 tweets during the event.

Sales acceleration is currently one of the fastest growing technology markets in the world. According to the Sales Acceleration Technology Market Size Study, sales acceleration represents $12.8 billion of spending in technology -- a figure that every indicator shows will continue to grow rapidly.

Sales acceleration technology facilitates the emerging business practice known as lead-to-revenue management.

"Companies that have implemented lead-to-revenue management systems have demonstrated business value: They contribute more to the sales pipeline; they have higher levels of process maturity; they measure results more holistically; and they have higher levels of sales-to-marketing alignment," writes Forrester analyst Lori Wizdo in a recent research report (Lead-To-Revenue Pioneers Discover It's Not Demand Generation On Steroids, Forrester Research, Inc., August 19, 2014).

Sponsors of the Sales Acceleration Technology Summit include InsideSales.com, LinkedIn, Marketo, DocuSign, Apttus, Gainsight and LogMeIn.

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning. Boundary (now part of BMC) launched a new public-facing multi-tenant high resolution monitoring service on Amazon AWS two years ago, facing challenges and learning best practices in the early days of the new service.
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer.
