AIA Worldwide Wins Two RAD Awards

RADs bring total of industry awards for AIA's work with engineering and technology company Thales to six

LONDON January 31, 2014 - AIA Worldwide, the global, technology-enabled recruitment advertising agency, announced today that it has been recognised with two RAD awards at a prestigious ceremony held at the Grosvenor House Hotel on 30 January. The awards highlight the creative, innovative, and effective recruitment advertising and software solutions that AIA continues to deliver across its diverse client base.

The awards included first place in the category of "Best Creative Use of Digital Media," which AIA Worldwide won with Thales. AIA Worldwide also secured first place in the "Best Recruitment Literature" category, again for Thales.

"We are delighted to have won twice for Thales at last night's RAD awards. Our partnership with Thales and its resourcing team has enabled us to work closely together to produce communications work that has delivered exceptional results over the last few years," said Darren Harris, Head of Client Strategy at AIA Worldwide.

"Through our long-running partnership, AIA Worldwide has continually delivered outstanding creative work for Thales, so we were delighted to receive four nominations at the RAD awards and subsequently win two of these categories. This takes our AIA/Thales awards tally to six in the last 18 months."

AIA Worldwide's achievements in the prestigious RAD awards follow a successful year for the company in which it was also named "Agency of the Year" by the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) and won a further six UK-specific awards for its creative work. 2013 was a year of phenomenal growth for AIA Worldwide with the agency winning 14 new clients and doubling the size of its workforce in Europe. AIA Worldwide also announced in December that it would open a new office in Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland.

"We are thrilled to be recognised once again for the quality of our recruitment campaigns and our innovative use of multimedia. It is further testament to the value of a strong client/agency relationship driven by mutual trust, respect and willingness to innovate. The team at AIA Worldwide is first-rate and always brings us new, practical and interesting ideas," said Miranda Davies, Director, Emerging Talent at Thales.

"Creativity, innovation and the quality of the idea lie at the heart of everything we do and we are thrilled at winning a number of awards at the RADS 2014. We constantly strive to create work that is best in class for our clients so for it to be recognised by the RADS is fantastic news and is testament to the amazing people we have at AIA Worldwide," concluded Martin Rimmer, Creative Director, AIA Worldwide.

With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will d...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Le...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes.

Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...
CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure...

Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
