May was a big month for the Xactly UK office. To start with, the team was busy at Salesforce World Tour London. With over 10,000 attendees, it’s the largest event in the Salesforce UK calendar, and we were delighted to be back again as gold sponsors. The day was packed full of meetings, sessions and networking, culminating in the Xactly and Salesforce CPQ party. Capping the event, Xactly announced its first European data center. Since Xactly opened its EMEA headquarters five years ago, we have had the great fortune to continue to expand our UK team, London headquarters, and growing list of European customers. Today, local companies including Interxion, SThree, Sherbiny and Snow Software are using Xactly to transform their sales potential and results through the power of compensation. The new data center will enable Xactly to further provide our customers the in-region security, availability, and reliability they require to take sales compensation programs to the next level. Moreover, as the facility will be based in Germany, it will also help them to meet strict regulatory, data sovereignty and data residency requirements. This significant step not only allows Xactly to better support our local European users, but also our global customers, including Caresteam, Hyatt, LinkedIn, Qlik, Salesforce and Twitter who have a strong presence in the region. The new data center is expected to come online in December 2017.
