Unified Communications Powerhouse Jive Turns to Impartner to Power Exponential Channel Growth

Impartner's Partner Relationship Management (PRM) solution does the work of up to 15 channel managers in helping Jive scale channel program

SALT LAKE CITY, Aug. 16, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Impartner, the best-selling and most-award winning pure play Partner Relationship Management (PRM) solution, today released a new customer case study with Jive Communications (now part of LogMeIn,) a powerhouse unified communications hosted voice over IP company. In the case study, Josh McFadden, Jive's director of programs and enablement for partners, highlights how Jive implemented Impartner after initial development with a competing PRM solution failed to deliver on expectations after nearly a year into implementation – and how the flexibility of Impartner's PRM solution and the company's team has ultimately helped Jive power their exponential channel growth. The case study is here https://bit.ly/2MNghWe.

"At a high level, the differences, between the previous PRM and the current PRM, really came down to the level of care that Impartner gave us," said McFadden. "And even now as we grow the program and the platform, they continue to help us refine what we're doing and ask questions such as 'Why are you looking into this?' and 'Why are you transacting this way?' We've even changed different ways of doing business from our relationship with Impartner.

"A key part of the value," added McFadden, "is Impartner PRM's ability to reduce channel administrative costs," which Impartner customers typically see reduce 23 percent in the first year of use alone.  "The cost of Impartner is about as much as an all-in senior channel manager. However, the production we've gained has been far more than just a single channel manager. A year later, we'd probably be looking at adding 10 to 15 channel managers to gain the same amount of production."

In the case study, McFadden also stresses the value of Impartner's real-time synch into Salesforce CRM, which has allowed them to offer real-time Price Quoting (CPQ) and is critical to remaining competitive in Jive's industry. "When we were looking to switch PRM solutions, the No. 1 concern was ensuring the sync with Salesforce was in real time and not batched so we didn't have data integrity issues," said McFadden. "Impartner has delivered on that need and more. As a managed package, Impartner PRM not only integrates easily with Salesforce, it also provides a true real-time synch and the functionality we need to provide Salesforce price quotes on the fly."

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, a web developer at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers...
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes.

Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...
