Impartner Raises $15 Million in Funding from Emergence Capital

Funding to further accelerate Impartner's growth trajectory, which in Q1 '17 alone has already seen an increase of 88 percent in new customer growth and 77 percent in new bookings

SILICON SLOPES, Utah, July 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Impartner, the world's largest and fastest-growing pure-play Partner Relationship Management (PRM) company, today announced the closing of a $15 million round of funding from Emergence Capital, the leading venture capital firm focused on early and growth-stage enterprise cloud companies. Impartner will use the funding on research and engineering to continue to advance its flagship Impartner PRM solution, which is already the most award-winning solution on the market, and on sales and marketing resources to further capture market momentum for PRM, which has become the first and most critical investment that companies need to make to contemporize their channel technology stack.

Impartner, the world’s largest pure-play Partner Relationship Management solution, announced it has closed a $15 million funding round with Emergence Capital. Impartner is lead by Silicon Slopes tech veteran, CEO Joe Wang.

"At Emergence Capital, we strive to invest in market-leading companies that have a global impact," said Brian Jacobs, founder and general partner, Emergence Capital. "We believe that with Impartner's strong management team, business execution and blue chip client base, they can expand their current lead in the fast-growing PRM market."

The base of partners signing into Partner Portals created using Impartner's technology has climbed nearly 275 percent in the past year alone, reaching more than 3.8 million total partner log-ins from its global customer base. The growing list of enterprises turning to Impartner PRM for its power to increase revenue an average of 31 percent and decrease administrative costs by 23 percent (per a recent global customer survey - whitepaper here), crosses a broad range of verticals from technology to telecom to manufacturing, and includes Ciena®, Conga, Illumina, Ingersoll Rand, Pivot3, Samsung and Splunk. For Pivot3, a leading hyperconverged infrastructure company growing at nearly 80 percent a year, scale was a key driver in its search for a PRM solution. "One of the things you have to do with a channel program is operate in a one-to-many capacity, especially when you're growing this quickly," said Pivot3 Chief Marketing Officer Bruce Milne. "Impartner's PRM solution was pivotal to the rapid expansion of our channel program, which grew by 400 partners in 12 months."

"Time after time after time, we've seen the power of PRM to accelerate the indirect sales of our customers in a way that compares to what the CRM market first did for direct sales a decade ago," said Impartner CEO Joe Wang.  "When you consider the business impact of what PRM is doing for indirect sales, which is generally 80 percent of corporations' revenue, compared to what CRM has done for direct sales - the market potential is transformative."

In just over the past two years since the company's acquisition, Impartner (formerly known as TreeHouse Interactive), has completely refactored its PRM solution to be up and running in as few as 15 days and be easily adopted by main street corporations and not just early tech adopters; introduced a stream of industry-first innovations to make Impartner PRM the industry's most nimble, easy-to-update platform on the market; expanded into EMEA and Latin America; nearly quadrupled its staff and moved offices twice; and won nearly 30 national and international awards for both products and executive leadership – including two back-to-back CEO of the Year awards for Wang.

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.

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.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
