At a press conference today with Nashville Mayor Karl Dean and the Chamber of Commerce, ServiceSource announced plans to expand its Nashville sales center and create 100 full-time permanent jobs to support its rapidly growing customer base. With now over 800 local employees, ServiceSource is the third largest technology employer in the greater Nashville area. The Nashville sales center also supports many major Silicon Valley-based customers, providing a unique high-tech linkage with the San Francisco Bay Area.
“For more than six years, ServiceSource has been a strong partner with Nashville, providing both employment opportunities and philanthropic support to the local community,” said Nashville Mayor Karl Dean. “Their presence here has added energy to our already vibrant downtown, and their plans for 100 new jobs speak to the economic vitality of our city. In working with some of the biggest technology companies in the world, ServiceSource’s local success is a testament to Nashville’s emerging tech sector.”
ServiceSource first opened an office in Nashville in 2008 with 20 employees and rapidly expanded its presence in 2012 as part of Governor Bill Haslam's jobs drive. With a fast growing business, the company’s local headcount has expanded over the past three years from 500 employees to over 800. Today, the Nashville office represents ServiceSource’s largest sales center, and occupies eight floors across 120,685 square feet in the ServiceSource tower, which has become a distinctive fixture on the Nashville skyline.
“Nashville is an emerging technology hub in the United States,” said Grant Clarke, Vice President of Selling Services at ServiceSource. “Nashville’s vibrant culture and entrepreneurial spirit are key ingredients to building a dynamic workforce. Without the continued support from the city of Nashville, we could not have grown and scaled in such a short period of time to meet the needs of our customers.”
With the infusion of 100 new employees, ServiceSource plans to hire sales representatives and other support staff that manage service contract and subscription renewals for over 40 hardware, software, SaaS, and healthcare technology companies. Current customers supported from the Nashville sales center include Adobe, Affymetrix, Beckman Coulter, Cardiac Science, Gerber, Google and Siemens. As Nashville emerges as a new hub of technology innovation in the United States, ServiceSource provides a unique connection with many of these prominent tech brands based in Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area.

As pervasive as cloud technology is -- and as persuasive as the arguments are for using it -- the cloud has its limits. Some companies will always have security concerns about storing data in the cloud and certain high-transaction applications will always be better suited for on-premises storage. Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete.

In his Day 3 Keynote at 20th Cloud Expo, Chris Brown, a Solutions Marketing Manager at Nutanix, will explore t...
