BEIJING, Jan. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- FleishmanHillard announced today the appointment of Jerry Zou to head its Beijing office as general manager.
Reporting to Li Hong, president of FleishmanHillard's Mainland China network, Zou assumes responsibility for the further expansion of the firm's operations, services and product offerings in Beijing. As general manager, he will focus on deepening current strengths in sectors with high potential, such as automotive, retail and luxury goods, as well as leveraging FleishmanHillard's global resources in integrated marketing, digital communications and data analytics, among others.
Zou had been working as a senior vice president and partner at FleishmanHillard's Beijing office, overseeing the firm's China technology and branding practices. In this role, he oversaw service for several of the firm's major clients in China. He has more than 13 years of experience in marketing communications and public relations, providing strategic counsel to clients and spearheading new business growth strategies in the market. He joined FleishmanHillard in 2008 and has been instrumental in the agency's rapid growth over the past five years.
"China continues to be a driving force in our regional growth strategy," said Lynne Anne Davis, FleishmanHillard president of Asia Pacific. "In 2013, Greater China emerged as the single biggest revenue generator in our 19-office Asia Pacific network and a shining example of the evolution of our business to meet an increasingly integrated world. In Beijing, Jerry has been leading the largest division of our largest office in APAC with flying colors. He plays a starring role in a success story that demonstrates how this dynamic market rewards experience, entrepreneurism, innovation, a culture of excellence, and a diehard commitment to client service. China President Li Hong has cultivated Jerry's natural leadership qualities and prepared him to take this exciting next step in his career. There is no doubt he will be a magnificent general manager who will help take us to even greater heights."
"I'm particularly happy to see Jerry's promotion," said Li Hong. "Our growth over the past five years would not have been possible with his spirit of collaboration, teamwork and creativity. Jerry consistently demonstrates best-practice account management skills and the agency credo that quality service is first and foremost in everything we do. He is very well-respected by the clients he serves and the teams he leads. Few people have his kind of drive and passion for his work and the people he works with. He is an inspiration, especially when it comes to making meaningful impact for our clients. I look forward to seeing how the Beijing office grows and thrives under Jerry's management, and we will be cheering him on every step of the way."
Before joining FleishmanHillard, Zou obtained eight years of professional experience in Hill & Knowlton and other global PR agencies. He holds a bachelor's degree of market and business from Shanghai Tongji University, China. He is also a member of the China International Public Relations Association.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud.

He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

The challenge is mainly attributed to the federated structure of these agencies as well as the immaturity of brokerage and governance tools and models. Initiatives like FedRAMP are a great first step toward solving many of these challenges but there are a lot of unknowns that are yet to be tackled. In hi...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

The proper isolation of resources is essential for multi-tenant environments. The traditional approach to isolate resources is, however, rather heavyweight. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Igor Drobiazko, co-founder of elastic.io, drew upon his own experience with operating a Docker container-based infrastructure on a large scale and present a lightweight solution for resource isolation using microservices. He also discussed the implementation of microservices in data and application integrat...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
