Zyme Extends Its Dominance in Channel Data Management

No Other CDM Solution Surpasses Zyme in Global Reach, Speed of Data Collection, Flexibility, Scalability, Accuracy of Data, Quality of Support, and Return on Investment

REDWOOD SHORES, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/12/14 -- Zyme, the leader in the rapidly expanding discipline of Channel Data Management (CDM), continues to win the confidence and loyalty of some of the world's most successful technology companies with a fast, flexible, massively scalable global platform precisely tailored for their channels.

"Major players in the tech space are moving to Zyme for Smarter Channel Data Management, in part because of our speed and sheer global scale," said Ken Edwards, VP of Professional Services at Zyme. "When you look at the number of transactions that our platform processes every day, the quantity of unique channel partners connected into the Zyme environment, the range of countries where we are collecting data, and the velocity at which we are able to collect, validate, and enrich data, there simply is no equal to Zyme."

Analyst profiles on the vendors that offer off-the-shelf Channel Data Management solutions show that Zyme is more entrenched than all others, with a global directory of 750,000 reporting channel partners in over 200 countries, and collecting more than 20,000 data feeds per week. When compared to the capabilities of other channel data management companies, only Zyme can deliver the global scale, guaranteed data accuracy, and lightning fast speed that large enterprises require.

As an added benefit to its customers, Zyme is establishing the first of several global channel data service centers, where skilled data stewards are providing deep channel expertise with local language support and regional business knowledge to deliver data validation and enrichment. This includes data refinements such as granular identification of precise sold-to and ship-to locations, and resolution of any language and local practice-based discrepancies that competitive channel data products merely reject or ignore. Zyme's unique solutions ensure the highest possible accuracy for POS transaction records and the industry's only guaranteed channel data quality of service levels. The first new Zyme facility is opening in Shanghai, China, with future locations planned for Europe and Latin America.

"Leading manufacturers of computer systems, networking, communications, storage, peripherals, and telecom are decommissioning their channel management software solutions previously purchased from other vendors, and migrating to Zyme," Edwards said. "In some cases, Zyme has demonstrated the ability to collect and process more transactions in one day than other platforms were able to process in a week. For today's global OEMs, only Zyme has the ability to deliver the scale, speed, accuracy, and reliability they need to optimize the efficiency and profitability of their extended channels."

Enterprises are continually working to eliminate inefficiencies, reduce costs, and drive additional revenue through their channels. The Zyme solution helps them achieve this by improving the immediacy and accuracy of sales and inventory data to more effectively measure current sales and balance the flow of inventory. Channel managers get closer to the edge of the channel and determine who is buying their products, why they are buying, what needs to be done to move more inventory, and how buyers can be influenced in increasingly positive ways. Retailers, resellers, and value-added integrators have a significant influence on what is ultimately sold. Zyme enables channel sales people to identify, monitor, incentivize, and assist channel partners to close more deals and drive higher revenues.

"Zyme customers are posting meaningful returns on investment from our solution," Edwards added. "Their salespeople are uncovering revenue opportunities sooner by monitoring and nurturing individual opportunities -- and preventing potential lost revenue before they lose it from resellers who are declining or switching allegiances. Financial managers are on the lookout for nonproductive incentive costs -- and since this is a trillion dollar industry, that can mean many millions in marketing cost savings. There's also a compelling ROI associated with reducing inventory risk, both for write-offs and stock-outs, providing a powerful upside for cash flows and balance sheets. Industry analysts who have interviewed Zyme customers have discovered that a potent ROI is being realized -- conservatively 200 percent per year by one customer, and even higher for others."

Cloud data governance was previously an avoided function when cloud deployments were relatively small. With the rapid adoption in public cloud – both rogue and sanctioned, it’s not uncommon to find regulated data dumped into public cloud and unprotected. This is why enterprises and cloud providers alike need to embrace a cloud data governance function and map policies, processes and technology controls accordingly. In her session at 15th Cloud Expo, Evelyn de Souza, Data Privacy and Compliance Strategy Leader at Cisco Systems, will focus on how to set up a cloud data governance program and s...
Every innovation or invention was originally a daydream. You like to imagine a “what-if” scenario. And with all the attention being paid to the so-called Internet of Things (IoT) you don’t have to stretch the imagination too much to see how this may impact commercial and homeowners insurance. We’re beyond the point of accepting this as a leap of faith. The groundwork is laid. Now it’s just a matter of time. We can thank the inventors of smart thermostats for developing a practical business application that everyone can relate to. Gone are the salad days of smart home apps, the early chalkb...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core of our infrastructures. At the same time, we have old approaches made new again like micro-services...

Even as cloud and managed services grow increasingly central to business strategy and performance, challenges remain. The biggest sticking point for companies seeking to capitalize on the cloud is data security. Keeping data safe is an issue in any computing environment, and it has been a focus since the earliest days of the cloud revolution. Understandably so: a lot can go wrong when you allow valuable information to live outside the firewall. Recent revelations about government snooping, along with a steady stream of well-publicized data breaches, only add to the uncertainty
