Today Appirio is introducing CloudWorks, the industry’s first cloud broker technology to help enterprises unleash information from SaaS silos - a problem faced by a growing number of enterprises who are moving more of their applications to the cloud. Unlike technology that just focuses on data integration or tying together lower-level infrastructure, CloudWorks delivers complete solutions for both business and IT. Cloudworks is an extensible foundation for a wide range of cross-cloud solutions that can improve user productivity, data quality and compliance, and return on existing SaaS investments. As part of today’s announcement, Appirio is introducing cross-cloud solutions built on CloudWorks that will be demoed at our first annual Cloud Leadership Summit (San Francisco) in front of 100+ people:
- SalesWorks - A packaged solution that drives results by giving sales teams better, more accurate information from across their business. SalesWorks delivers relevant customer-related data (including Chatter) to sales teams in their email, calendar or to their mobile device — adding context to customer interactions using valuable information that might have otherwise gone unnoticed.
- PeopleWorks - A packaged solution that securely delivers context-sensitive HR-related information inside a manager’s inbox so they can more efficiently manage employees without the risk of exposing data to insecure environments.
- CustomWorks - Custom solutions created by Appirio’s experienced services professionals for a specific business need using CloudWorks as a foundation.
- CloudWorks extensions from other SaaS providers - Partner solutions from other SaaS providers that tap into the CloudWorks platform to extend the value of their own solutions. Today Appirio introduces three extensions from D&B, Marketo and Xactly that bring additional financial information, marketing insight and sales compensation data into SalesWorks.
