Your corporate intranet is a reflection of your corporate culture, and changing either is difficult.

GlassWater Technology Company:

GlassWater was founded on the premise that there are enterprises and governments with the desire or mandate to adopt the Microsoft cloud into their overall IT landscape but lack the experience or situational awareness to execute. Additionally, there are a multitude of emerging software providers that have compelling technology that would be beneficial to these customers but they lack the sales and business development wherewithal to reach their prime markets. We aim to bring these two ecosystems together, to eliminate the turbulence associated with cloud adoption, and lead your organization to calm waters.

Dear CEO, can you add me to your secret distribution list? (@hyperfish)

Dear CEO, can you add me to your secret distribution list? (@hyperfish)

In a previous role  I was responsible for our global enterprise sales team.  I spearheaded the purchase and adoption of a technology that would track website hits.  This kind of information was very helpful to sales because while you couldn't see exactly "who" was hitting your site, you could see the company name, location, search terms, sites visited, etc.  There was a simple reporting functionality that allowed a user of the tool to create and schedule reports to run on a periodic basis and either store that report in a log or send it to you via email.  

Top 5 Takeaways from Nintex InspireX 2017

Top 5 Takeaways from Nintex InspireX 2017

Nintex hosted their annual Partner and Customer Conference in New Orleans from Feb 13-15, 2017.  We were looking forward to this show not only because its our first opportunity to attend since signing up as a Nintex partner, but also having worked for an ISV that does not have an annual conference, we were eager to see how Nintex would execute.  We know these events are not easy to pull off; it is difficult to coordinate sponsorships, speakers, and entertainment options to provide a valuable experience for attendees that is not only exciting but educational.  We found this event to be a home run, jam packed with useful sessions but also with exciting keynotes and Tier 1 speakers.  Here are our Top 5 takeaways from the event:

Are you creating valuable assets for your organization?

Are you creating valuable assets for your organization?

You have to realize that your organization has entrusted you with the capital to spend on its behalf, are you deploying it wisely?  The organization could have redistributed those earnings and budgets to any number of other vehicles, but they chose you.  Sounds like a grand responsibility, right?  Well its not always that dramatic, but it should make us think, for every dollar we spend on a new project, is it creating at least 1 dollar in value in return? 

Put a Beacon on It!

Ever want to know how many times someone requests time off?

Or when an employee  requests a new computer?

Or when a sales rep asks for discount of greater than 50%?

Well now you can, with Nintex Hawkeye. Nintex Hawkeye allows point analytics within Nintex Workflows. Adding a beacon to any action allows rich analytics pretty much anywhere you want them. Nintex provides users and admins the ability to unlock the value in your data and gain unique perspectives on which workflows improve your organizations business processes. Adding Beacons can allow monitoring of departmental usage, unique users and current instances within a specific scope of your Nintex environment. Beacons can also address areas of training and efficiency within your organization. With Nintex's drag and drop interface, Beacons can be added by administrators and power users alike. Nintex Hawkeye can be accomplished in three easy steps:

 1) Add Beacons to actions within workflow

 2) Add lenses to filter out data and only show what's needed for a clean report

 3) Share data through rich interfaces like Microsoft's Power BI.

Why GlassWater Technology?

So you've made it to Office 365, paid for a pile of users, gave them the keys to all the rich functionality and applications. Now what? How do you propel your business to the next level and get the most out of your investment? After working on the software side as well as the delivery side I noticed that there needs to be a middleman, someone that knows software well enough and knows when to build vs buy. GlassWater Technology is that middleman, we vet independent software vendors and compile the best of breed companies while allowing delivery organizations to customize solutions to fit the needs of their clients. It's our goal to provide our customers with the best combination of software and services to solve business problems. We are always looking for new partners in both applications and delivery.
