CallidusCloud Receives Highest Rating From Leading Analyst Research
Firm in Sales Performance Management MarketScope Study 
CallidusCloud -- the Only Vendor to Receive Top Rating 
PLEASANTON, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/19/12 --  Callidus Software Inc.
(NASDAQ: CALD), a leading provider of hiring, learning, marketing and
selling cloud software, announced today that it received a "Strong
Positive" rating in the latest MarketScope for Sales Performance
Management (SPM) Software by Gartner, Inc. (NYSE: IT), the world's
leading information technology research and advisory company. 
The SPM MarketScope study evaluated 10 vendors on a number of factors
including the strength of their products, customers and financials.
The report, which estimates the SPM market size at $1.5-$2 billion,
focuses on vendors that provide technology for managing training,
coaching, hiring, onboarding, territories, quotas and incentive
compensation of sales and channel professionals.  
"We are delighted to be recognized as the only 'Strong Positive'
vendor by this leading analyst. Gartner has previously produced
reports on the Incentive Compensation (ICM) market and the Insurance
ICM market, where we have also been recognized as leaders. However,
companies are no longer looking at ICM in isolation and are instead
focusing on the wider aspects of sales performance," said Giles
House, Vice President, Marketing Communications and Products,
CallidusCloud(R). "Tapping into the latest mobile, social and
gamification technology, our Clouds provide companies with the most
comprehensive set of solutions that transform sales channels and
teams into productive, effective, high-performance operations."
