CHATSWORTH, Calif., Sept. 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- NATEL EMS was named the winner of a Gold Stevie® Award in the "Fastest Growing Company of the Year in Canada and the U.S.A." category of the 11th Annual International Business Awards.
The awards will be presented to winners at a gala awards banquet at the Westin Paris – Vendome Hotel in Paris, France on 10 October. More than 3,500 nominations from organizations of all sizes and in virtually every industry were submitted this year for consideration in a wide range of categories. Stevie Award winners were selected by more than 250 executives worldwide who participated in the judging process from May through early August.
"We are exceptionally proud of our team and our growth over the last year," said Sudesh Arora, NATEL EMS President and CEO. "The acquisition of EPIC technologies challenged us to perform in new technologies and industries, and we rose to that challenge. We look forward to accepting this award in Paris, and while this is our first Stevie® Award win, we don't plan to stop growing and improving anytime soon."
From January 1, 2013 to Jan 1, 2014, NATEL EMS saw 93% revenue growth and 497% employee growth. As part of a growth strategy seeking to grow annual revenues to $1 billion within the next decade, NATEL EMS acquired EPIC Technologies of Ohio in 2013, a company three times the size of NATEL EMS. The ability of NATEL EMS to overcome both the financial and operational challenges associated with an acquisition that size was a key part of their nomination for the award.
NATEL EMS also enhanced their capabilities last year, becoming certified to complete Kryton-85 Radioisotope Leak Testing and raising their contractor ratings to 100% through a collaborative plan with two of their national customers. The company was also awarded the Circuits Assembly Magazine's Service Excellence Award for the 5th consecutive year.

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...

Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...
