CRM has been around as a “new” process for 30+ years in various forms. And yet even with giants in the industry, new entrants emerge almost monthly and new capabilities continue to be added to even the pioneers in the industry. In the interview with industry veteran Paul Petersen, Vice President of Goldmine, we discuss why CRM is not yet a settled science and what the future may hold for this vital but aging process. The host this week in Jim Obermayer.

GoldMine Announces GoldMine Cloud Partnership with nGenx Offers New Cloud Options for Basic CRM
Tuesday, June 2, 2015 — MILPITAS, CA — GoldMine®, a pioneer in CRM and contact management serving businesses of all sizes for over 25 years, announces that its new GoldMine Cloud service will be available June 2, 2015. This announcement allows new customers to leverage the years of refinements in this leading Windows application with Cloud access.
GoldMine Cloud is offered in partnership with nGenx – and was also selected to be part of the Google Compute Engine as part of new Desktop-as-a-Service offerings. The combination of GoldMine’s features and ease of use along with the Google Compute Engine means users will have a powerful new way to run their business.
GoldMine Cloud is powered by nGenx, a pioneer in cloud-based application delivery of hosted virtual desktops. nGenx collaborates with strategic partners such as GoldMine, Microsoft, Google and others to develop hosted application solutions provided via nFinity nWorkspace, the company’s cloud desktop-as-a service (DaaS) platform. nGenx transforms IT into a utility and enables organizations to access their familiar business applications on any device, anywhere business needs to be conducted.
The offering will provide a subscription option and a BYOL (bring your own license) for existing users to continue using GoldMine but get out from the IT management side. For clients wanting control of their data and have the servers, GoldMine on premise offers the most affordable option over time with the benefits of faster performance and greater integration possibilities with other applications.
“The advantages of a virtual desktop over single app-SaaS are strong: leverage the refined development in leading Windows applications, easier access for users and lower combined cost over multiple subscriptions, and interoperability between applications – a difficulty with multiple cloud vendors”, said Paul R. Petersen, vice president & general manager of GoldMine.
GoldMine Cloud will first be available in North America with UK available later this summer. Users will work with GoldMine certified resellers to see a demo, get their questions answered, and then pick the right deployment option, the reseller can then provide additional configuration and data customization services for the user as desired. Initial support will include access to over 250 training videos and a community board for users. Premium agent support will be available as well.

IndependenceIT Cloud Workspace Suite and Google Compute Engine Selected by nGenx and GoldMine for Cloud Application Enablement
IndependenceIT Supports nGenx and GoldMine with Technology Base for Workspace-as-a-Service (WaaS) on Google Compute Engine
Boston, MA – June 2, 2015 – IndependenceIT, an integrated workspace automation software platform provider allowing IT departments, service providers and ISVs to easily deliver workspaces, applications and desktops as a service (DaaS), today announced that it has been selected by nGenx to power Windows-based DaaS and application delivery on Google Compute Engine to support the delivery of GoldMine Cloud software. For independent software vendors (ISVs) like GoldMine, this expands the theater of operations to increase revenue opportunities while reducing software management and maintenance liabilities.
IndependenceIT was selected by application and desktop pioneer, nGenx, to deliver its “Bring Your Own Cloud” strategy to GoldMine and other ISVs. GoldMine will now benefit from its selection of nGenx and Google Compute Engine to cloud-enable its popular contact management software by leveraging the power of IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace® Suite. By combining the automation/workflow of Cloud Workspace Suite with Google Compute Engine’s performance, scale and support for Windows-based workloads, GoldMine is able to create new profit centers from its existing product line. Google Compute Engine’s support for Windows-based cloud workspaces allows software developers like GoldMine to run business critical Windows-based workloads at high performance and scale.
“We’re proud to work with Google and nGenx in delivering the underlying technology that supports a best-in-class workspace, application and DaaS,” said Seth Bostock, CEO, IndependenceIT. “Cloud Workspace Suite orchestrates, provisions and manages all elements necessary for automated delivery of GoldMine Cloud.”
“This alignment enables us to offer our all-in-one CRM capabilities as a subscription option. Furthered by an easy to use Windows application in the cloud, users retain all of the functionality of our on-premise solution,” said Paul R. Petersen, vice president and general manager, GoldMine. “As a result, customers now have greater choice in how they consume the technology without leaving behind years of development and innovation.”
Google Compute Engine is built on the same infrastructure that returns billions of search results in milliseconds. The backbone of the network has thousands of miles of fiber optic cable, uses advanced software-defined networking and has edge caching services to deliver fast, consistent and scalable performance. Multiple points of presence across the globe provide strong redundancy with data automatically mirrored across storage devices in multiple locations. Add to this Google Compute Engine’s expanded support for Windows-based workloads like GoldMine and this presents a compelling option for ISVs.
“Our technology partners, including IndependenceIT and Google Compute Engine, have been instrumental in reinforcing the advantages of nFinity nWorkspace, considered by many as a premier cloud application delivery platform for ISVs,” said JD Helms, CEO, nGenx. “Software vendors acting on this technology can expect to benefit from the increasing adoption of cloud-based applications.”
As a critical component of the nGenx solution, IndependenceIT’s Cloud Workspace Suite orchestrates, manages and provisions all elements necessary for automated, multi-platform, hypervisor/device agnostic applications and workspaces. Cloud Workspace Suite features industry-leading Microsoft RemoteApp automation/workflow and cross-platform interoperability for unmatched application access. The software also offers a robust API set for ease of integration with existing service provider infrastructure and business support tools.
“The IndependenceIT team has found Google Compute Engine to be a robust cloud platform capable of scaling to address the needs of workspace enabled applications. As our engineering team worked closely with the Google Compute Engine team during the beta phase of Windows support, we were pleased by the depth of functionality available from the platform, the rapid deployment of virtual machines, and the high end workspace performance delivered directly to the end user. While Cloud Workspace Suite has been the test platform to scale on Google Compute Engine, the solution’s general availability allows our partners to build a global workspace, application or DaaS business on this infrastructure,” noted Bostock.
Global support for partner ISV cloud enablement leveraging Google Compute Engine is available immediately.

SaaS delivery will significantly outpace traditional software product delivery, growing nearly five times faster than the software market as a whole and becoming the significant growth driver to all functional software markets. By 2017, the cloud software model will account for $1 of every $6 spent on software.”
“nFinity nWorkspace is a powerful application delivery platform that allows ISVs to reduce their time to market and revenue,” said JD Helms, CEO, nGenx. “The SaaS enablement of GoldMine, powered by nGenx and our partners IndependenceIT and Google, presents a powerful cloud-based CRM option for universal access, regardless of user location or computing device.
