Clari To Host EXCEED, First Ever Event Dedicated to Sales Operations
Two-Day, Invite-Only Event Will Bring 100 Sales Visionaries To Levi's Stadium To Learn, Teach, and Shape the Future of Sales

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb. 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --


Clari, the leading end-to-end sales analytics and forecasting solution provider, will host the first ever event dedicated to sales operations and sales enablement. EXCEED's unique format will be a hands-on learning and sharing event filled with keynote speakers, breakout sessions on topics like data-driven selling and forecasting best practices, as well as fireside chats, roundtables and networking opportunities.


100 top sales operations professionals and visionaries across corporations, geographies, industries and cultures. Guest speakers include San Francisco 49ers legend and four-time Pro Bowler Brent Jones and Steve Silver, Research Director at SiriusDecisions. Confirmed attendees include executives from Juniper Networks, Nimble Storage, Five9, Cisco Systems, Palo Alto Networks, and Blue Coat Systems.


With the rise of data in the enterprise, sales operations has changed dramatically. Companies are using data to direct where sales should spend their time, what customers they should contact, what deals are at risk and if the company will make its number. Sales operations is no longer an unsung hero; it's a strategic ally to executives. These visionaries need a community and space to share their best ideas and invent the future with their peers.

"There's a massive increase of data in the enterprise, and new data sources give us insights we've never had. Sales teams are looking for our help on how to make the data easy to understand, make it relevant, and make it actionable. Sales Operations has moved from unsung hero to strategic ally to the entire sales organization. I am excited to participate in the first ever EXCEED event and work with my peers to determine the sales processes and strategies to design the future of sales." -- Chris Klapprott, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Operations, Aruba Networks, A Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company

"At any moment's notice, my team and I need to be able to dissect and manipulate data so that our leadership team can make better business decisions. Are we allocating resources in the right areas? Who are our top performing sales teams and why are they successful? Are we hiring the right kind of people? That's why I'm excited to participate in the new EXCEED community and exclusive event devoted to our profession. Working together -- as a community -- we're going to define the future of sales." -- Jeff McKittrick, Director of Digital Sales Platforms at Cisco Systems

"Over the past decade, sales operations has evolved into a function that informs and enables sales strategy and technology capabilities, drives change and supports strategic growth objectives. I'm excited about the opportunity at EXCEED to explore the drivers of change, as well as the current and future states of the sales operations function." -- Steve Silver, Research Director, SiriusDecisions
