Today marks the first day of SuiteWorld17 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Last year was my first year attending, and I was blown away by the tech mega event. In case you've never been, SuiteWorld is NetSuite's annual celebration of its customers and partners and is now the largest cloud ERP conference in the world. This year marks the 7th year for SuiteWorld. Being held in Vegas, this year's event promises to be the biggest one yet, bringing together an estimated 6,500 of the top minds and companies in cloud computing all in one place.

Most people's primary reason for attending is to find the cloud solutions that will help scale their business and the pure size of the event can create. However, with over 200 sessions, more than 1,000 vendor booths, multiple keynote speeches, and after-hour events every evening, all in just three days, it can be hard to know how to best spend your time. Not to worry, I've got you covered.

Here are five tech companies at SuiteWorld17 that offer proven solutions that will help your company grow.

Adaptive Insights

Having raised over $176 million in funding since their inception in 2003, Adaptive Insights has grown rapidly by making the success of their customers their primary focus. With a client base of over 3,300, Adaptive Insights helps finance departments access powerful financial data in real-time and easily convert it into beautiful dashboards, scorecards, and reports. Adaptive Insights' powerful financial insights make them every mid-size company CFO's dream.


Founded in 2010, SyncHR's goal is to simplify Human Capital Management (HCM) by streamlining core HR functions like benefits, payroll, and reporting within a single cloud application and simplified. They create a company HR portal that can be accessed by both employees and administrators, taking out the complexity of HCM that plagues so many mid-size companies. SyncHR's powerful automation tools give mid-size companies HR functionality that much larger companies enjoy.


If your company's bottom line is dependent on having the right products delivered at the right times, then PlanningEdge is a company you can't miss at SuiteWorld. PlanningEdge's cloud-based solution helps companies optimize their inventory so that they never have too much or too little but rather just the right amount of product to maximize profitability. Their analytics engine automates demand planning, enabling companies to optimize their inventory and supply. Reducing your inventory to the correct levels will provide a substantial cost savings for your company.


iCharts is last year's NetSuite SuiteApp of the Year. iCharts provides gorgeous visual analytics and reporting, enabling companies to rapidly view and analyze complex data sets giving them key insights into their performance. Users are able to collaborate and share dashboards, reports, and charts empowering their company to make more-well-informed decisions on the most critical areas of their business. I got to see iCharts in action last year with a live demo at their booth, and I was highly impressed at how quickly their application can organize massive amounts of data and convert it into a format that is easily shared and visually appealing.


If integration with Netsuite is what you're after, look no further than Celigo. Their founders built the very first integration stack at NetSuite. Celigo's is an integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS), enabling companies to integrate virtually anything with NetSuite. They also offer 15 prebuilt integrations that are ready to go out of the box for eCommerce sites complete with NetSuite's powerful back-office tools.

SuiteWorld gives its attendees the opportunity to tap a powerful NetSuite ecosystem and to network face to face with the organizations that will be shaping the next generation of cloud computing services.
