On Friday the 13th, IBM announced its intention to acquire Varicent.
We say welcome, IBM! Adding a marquee name to the space further validates the market and reinforces what Xactly has always known - sales performance management (SPM) and the ability to analyze vast quantities and types of sales data is a highly valuable, strategic asset to customers.
Unlike Varicent however, we have always believed that SaaS will fuel the market and be the dominant model moving forward. As our diverse and expansive group of SPM and analytics customers illustrates, SaaS enables companies of all sizes to take advantage of incentive compensation technology – without the prohibitive price tag of an on-premise solution. Looking forward, this architecture offers technology advantages that allow us to leverage leading edge solutions such as Hadoop and NoSQL Big Data to provide unparalleled performance and deliver the only way to mine sales data in an efficient, timely and effective manner.
We are so sure you will agree, we are offering ONE FREE YEAR of Xactly's SaaS solution to any Varicent customer. So, what are you waiting for… join the cloud revolution and see how it can transform your compensation and sales analytics initiatives and bottom line!
