Dynatrace wins prestigious “Success for All” Sally award for its Champion Playbook

Every day, we help our customers deliver the best experiences and success for their customers. That’s a big part of what digital performance is all about. But that’s not all we do. We take customer success very seriously for our own clients, too. We help them reach and exceed their goals—through our own signature program—the Champion Playbook.

For years now, Gainsight has led the way for companies — in many different industries — to redefine how they measure and exceed expectations by managing customer success. They also lead the way in recognizing the new digital business paradigm. According to Forbes, they’re at the “center of the market” for customer success and “increasingly the focus of dedicated teams at businesses that seek to monitor and improve customer relationships…”.

Recently Gainsight recognized Dynatrace as the top success plan leader among their corporate customers. We received their “Success for All” Sally award at the recent Pulse 2017 customer success event, in front of an audience of more than 4,000 VP and C-level executives who direct some of the largest Customer Success organizations around the world.

Each year at their Pulse event, the Gainsight team goes through a rigorous selection process to recognize cutting-edge customer success leaders. According to their CEO, Nick Mehta, “The Sally Awards aren’t given—they’re earned. Winning one means your company is transformationally and cross-functionally aligned around positive customer outcomes.” Winners in other categories included such well-known names as Adobe, Angie’s List, Blackbaud, HubSpot and Concur.

Champion Playbook, Customer Success Managers: a winning combination

Dynatrace was selected for its development and use of the Champion Playbook success plan, a program that supports and drives the best customer outcomes in digital performance led by our Customer Success Managers (CSMs). CSMs are our customers’ personal advocates and strategic drivers for adoption, success and value achievement.

CSMs start by building a close relationship with our customers’ in-house performance monitoring, development and business leadership. Next, they examine the customer’s current state in accelerating innovation, optimizing customer experiences and modernizing operations. Using the Champion Playbook as their guide, Dynatrace CSMs work with customers to expand internal performance culture by sharing proven strategies to highlight value and speed adoption of new ways of doing business.

The whole program is based on our unparalleled and extensive experience working with top companies to build highly successful digital businesses. We’ve taken that knowledge and created a well-defined playbook for working together with our customers, and applying best practices and innovative processes to their specific needs. Together we set and achieve digital performance goals to reach optimum adoption, greater value and constant awareness of new opportunities for improvement.

At Dynatrace we know that having the best technology is important, but following the path to success with that technology also requires the right approach to organizational culture, strategy, people and processes. This award is an enormous validation of the Champion Playbook, our practical and proven way of working with our customers. It’s just the beginning, and, I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish in the future—together.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
"Evatronix provides design services to companies that need to integrate the IoT technology in their products but they don't necessarily have the expertise, knowledge and design team to do so," explained Adam Morawiec, VP of Business Development at Evatronix, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
To get the most out of their data, successful companies are not focusing on queries and data lakes, they are actively integrating analytics into their operations with a data-first application development approach. Real-time adjustments to improve revenues, reduce costs, or mitigate risk rely on applications that minimize latency on a variety of data sources. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Jack Norris, Senior Vice President, Data and Applications at MapR Technologies, reviewed best practices to ...

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
