SAN FRANCISCO and LONDON, Feb. 20, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Talent Rover, provider of cloud-based software built for managing the entire staffing and recruitment workflow, announced today the official opening of its new London office. Led by Steve Harris, Talent Rover's Director of EMEA Sales, the London office will continue to expand the company's European presence and meet the growing demand for staffing and recruitment software that addresses the needs of a rapidly globalising industry.
Over the past year, Talent Rover has taken significant steps to serve the European market. The company's global expansion began in April 2013 with the opening of its first London office. Later that year, an office was opened in Dublin, Ireland to host the global support team. The new office in London's Bank District will host a complete team of sales and operations professionals dedicated to Talent Rover's client-base in Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
"We've made a commitment to provide the European market with local expertise," said Brandon Metcalf, co-founder and COO of Talent Rover. "We recognize how important it is that our product is managed and sold by people who understand the recruitment industry in Europe."
Steve Harris, Talent Rover's first European Enterprise Account Executive, has transitioned into a new role, Director of EMEA Sales, and will be responsible for managing the new London office. With over 25 years of recruiting experience in the European market, Harris brings a true understanding of the business and technological challenges faced by staffing and recruitment organisations. Prior to joining Talent Rover, Harris was the Founding Director of Imnet, specializing in IT recruitment. In addition to directing his own firm for 20 years, Harris held recruitment and management roles at several UK- based firms.
"Before Talent Rover, there was no software in the European market that could successfully manage small size and enterprise level firms," said Harris. "Having managed a recruitment business, I know how frustrating it is to work with multiple software solutions that can't support the full recruitment workflow, and I've seen how inadequate technology can take time away from making sales, finding talent and securing placements. I'm proud to lead Talent Rover's growth in a market where it is clearly needed."
Native in 20 languages and supporting over 100 currencies, Talent Rover is well suited for local European users conducting both regional and global business. Talent Rover is also designed to manage regulations in any market. In the UK, for instance, where firms do a high volume of contract staffing and face strict mandates under the Agency Workers Regulations, Talent Rover integrates compliance measures directly into the recruitment workflow.
"Many companies with a global presence are forced to use different software solutions in different regions because their solutions can't adapt to new markets or scale to support global growth," added Metcalf. "Our goal is to provide Europe's staffing and recruitment firms with one log-in for every task that drives business forward."

Contrary to mainstream media attention, the multiple possibilities of how consumer IoT will transform our everyday lives aren’t the only angle of this headline-gaining trend. There’s a huge opportunity for “industrial IoT” and “Smart Cities” to impact the world in the same capacity – especially during critical situations. For example, a community water dam that needs to release water can leverage embedded critical communications logic to alert the appropriate individuals, on the right device, as...

The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...

As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?

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.

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

The Internet of Things is in the early stages of mainstream deployment but it promises to unlock value and rapidly transform how organizations manage, operationalize, and monetize their assets. IoT is a complex structure of hardware, sensors, applications, analytics and devices that need to be able to communicate geographically and across all functions. Once the data is collected from numerous endpoints, the challenge then becomes converting it into actionable insight.
