SANTA MONICA, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/16/13 -- Nimble, a pioneering social relationship management platform, announced a new set of business productivity apps including Zapier, FreshDesk and Import2, has been added to the growing Nimble Apps Marketplace. Nimble is internationally acclaimed for empowering business teams to collectively engage with customers and turn social conversations into business opportunities with its simple web-based solution.

The Nimble Apps Marketplace now hosts an expanding collection of third-party tools, empowering Nimble users with lead capture and analytics, email marketing support, and more. These new Nimble add-ons, available immediately to the Nimble community, give businesses even more ways to close the social marketing and sales loop.

"Our newest wave of apps helps our growing population of social business users and empowers them to practice social selling," said Jon Ferrara, CEO, Nimble.

Newest Additions to the Nimble Apps Marketplace

Zapier
Use Zapier to integrate Nimble into your favorite business applications. Connecting web-based apps is often a challenge. In the past, users transcribed data themselves or hired a programmer to sync apps between complicated APIs. Zapier helps business people, who know their time is better spent connecting with customers, by syncing the web services they are already using on a daily basis to increase productivity and results. Think of Zapier as an If This, Then That (IFTTT) for business users.

With Zapier connected to Nimble you can automatically:

  • Send new Salesforce.com leads into Nimble for more effective social selling
  • Send new QuickBooks customers and vendors into Nimble to nurture and manage relationships
  • Send new GoToWebinar attendees into Nimble for more effective customer engagement

Just drag and drop the icons for Nimble and your favorite web app into place, select the information to transfer and Zapier does the rest. Learn more at: https://zapier.com/. Twitter: @Zapier

The Nimble-Freshdesk integration enables agents to see full customer records from within a Freshdesk help ticket. Freshdesk is a cloud-based help desk software system that allows organizations to support their customers through email, phone, website, Facebook and Twitter. Its simple yet powerful features make Freshdesk a great solution for startups to enterprises. Freshdesk and Nimble work together to create a "social help desk" to keep business owners and small teams organized with the most recent, accurate information available about their customers.

I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
"There's a growing demand from users for things to be faster. When you think about all the transactions or interactions users will have with your product and everything that is between those transactions and interactions - what drives us at Catchpoint Systems is the idea to measure that and to analyze it," explained Leo Vasiliou, Director of Web Performance Engineering at Catchpoint Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York Ci...

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
You think you know what’s in your data. But do you? Most organizations are now aware of the business intelligence represented by their data.

The techniques of data science, when used with the capabilities of Big Data technologies, can make connections you had not yet imagined, helping you discover new insights and ask new questions of your data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sarbjit Sarkaria, data science team lead ...

IoT generates lots of temporal data. But how do you unlock its value? You need to discover patterns that are repeatable in vast quantities of data, understand their meaning, and implement scalable monitoring across multiple data streams in order to monetize the discoveries and insights. Motif discovery and deep learning platforms are emerging to visualize sensor data, to search for patterns and to build application that can monitor real time streams efficiently.

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
