CallidusCloud’s solutions will accelerate this for us and ensure our sales teams are well-trained, knowledgeable, and appropriately incentivized,” said Jonathan Jung, Director of Sales Operations at AppDynamics. “Typically, an implementation like this would take four months. We are planning on completing the process in half that time.”
