NetSuite has named Frank Iannotti as SVP of enterprise accounts. The announcement of this week was about two high-profile exec hirings. But Doug Kennedy, now VP of global systems integrators, scooped his new employer by posting the job change, which was published here earlier in the month. Iannotti was area VP for Salesforce.com from October 2011 through March. Before that, he was GM and national VP for SAP On-Demand from October 2003 through October 2011.
Microsoft has reached an agreement to buy FieldOne Systems, which markets field service management applications. Based in Mahwah, N.J., FieldOne had joined Microsoft's Strategic Global ISV Partner Program in March. The benefits are the same—FieldOne is built on Dynamics CRM and Microsoft was going to sell the acquired application anyway.
InterDyn BMI, itself acquired by Columbus this year, has seen its parent purchase Sherwood Systems. The recent deal moves Minneapolis, Minn.-based BMI into the Southwestern United States. Founded in 1990, Phoenix, Ariz.-based Sherwood carries Dynamics GP and CRM. It is also one of 40 Source Code authorized Great Plains Solution Developers. Its head, Lee Sherwood, retired following the deal.
Microsoft has named the Dynamics Inner Circle members for 2015 at its Worldwide Partner Conference. However, the company apparently has not posted a list of those or members of the President's Club, as it usually does. So names are emerging as individual companies issue press releases. U.S. winners that have tooted their horns include Blue Horsehoe, mcaConnect, Rand Group, Socius and Western Computer. First impressions: it's a heavily AX club.
