Navatar Private Equity CRM and Hedge Fund CRM for Salesforce Cloud Featured in Hedgeweek

Hedgeweek and Private Equity Wire mention the work Navatar is doing in bringing cloud computing to the alternative asset world, in their latest article that they interviewed me for.

“US-based Navatar Group is a leading provider of cloud computing for Wall Street firms, but increasingly that client base is widening out to alternative investment managers as they start to fully appreciate the benefits of cloud systems and how they can streamline their operations.”

We see this as a sector that will be gaining a lot of prominence in the US, given the regulatory changes that are anticipated. However, we have also received significant attention from European firms recently and our customer base across the pond has been growing rapidly. We are working on recruiting resellers in each country so we can provide local support. More on that soon …

But I’m truly happy that only 1 out of 50 prospects now mention data security as a concern (our partner salesforce.com has done an excellent job of alleviating those concerns). I’m excited because it takes us to the next step – opening the door for some game changing innovation, as Greg Johnsen points out in his Wired magazine article, The future belongs to cloud-networked companies.

“We’re only in the second inning of cloud computing. Its most profound impact will not be on reducing total cost of ownership, but rather for enabling powerful, game-changing systems — that were not possible before.

Today’s systems were designed for a world without an internet. They assumed little to no connectivity between or across companies. They were designed for companies, in isolation — not communities or “networks” of companies collaborating together.

To survive, companies must transform themselves from silo-based, inward-facing corporate operators to interconnected, highly agile business network orchestrators. They must leverage newer cloud-based B2B platforms designed specifically for inter-company process orchestration and collaboration on a global scale.

I will be communicating more about the cloud platforms of the future, that we and some of the others have been building (it will take more than just Navatar to bring about this change). So back to Hedgeweek, and as I am quoted in their article:

“As with everything, change only happens when clients realise it’s possible and force the vendors.”
