Artesian Solutions ("Artesian"), a leading provider of cloud-based Social CRM and brand surveillance software, today announced that it has been named as the winner of CRM Idol 2012 for EMEA, Asia and Australia after a record setting popular vote and the preferences of the primary and extended judges were counted. This year's contest was a tough competition that featured some of the most innovative Social CRM companies within the industry. To win the award, Artesian participated in a rigorous vetting of references, a live demonstration of its software in front of multiple judges and the production of a professional video presentation that demonstrated its vision for the future of the Social CRM industry.
As winner of CRM Idol 2012, Artesian has been recognised for its highly experienced team and extensive knowledge of the CRM and business intelligence industries. In particular, judges commended Artesian's ability to transform how organisations engage with customers by providing B2B businesses with the ability to effectively uncover relevant information about customers which can be used to enhance communications and personalise the sales lifecycle.
Andrew Yates, Artesian's chief executive officer and co-founder, comments on the significance of winning such a prestigious title: "It is an incredible honour to win CRM Idol 2012 and we are obviously thrilled. CRM Idol really inspires you to aim for your best. This competition has given us the opportunity to be tested by judges who themselves are helping shape our industry, and also to be compared with the most innovative and deserving companies in our space."
"As the concept of 'social prospecting' continues to develop, I am delighted that Artesian has been recognised for the impact that we are making within the CRM space by helping organisations take advantage of the information available across social channels to transform the way they engage with prospects and customers - for the better - forever."
Artesian was also grateful for the competition's role in highlighting the innovative nature of Social CRM and how it is impacting the way that organisations can operate more effectively by fundamentally making the sales conversation all about the customer - like it used to be. Artesian calls this process 'Get to Know'.
Andrew Yates adds:
"Winning this award not only helps to underscore our commitment to the industry, but also proves that we have the ability to help sales professionals develop personalised relationships with customers that translate into revenue. We have worked closely with the judges throughout the entire competition to highlight the contribution that Artesian is making to the CRM community and to share our vision of how B2B companies will need to engage with their customers in the future."

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Jocelyn Scheirer, CEO & Founder of Bionolux, will discuss ho...

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com), moderated by Ashar Baig, Research Director, Cloud, at Gigaom Research, Nate Gordon, Director of T...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
