LONDON, September 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ --
TES Global today announces the appointment of Rob Grimshaw as its new Chief Operating Officer (COO).
Rob will start with TES Global in early November, joining from FT.com, the online branch of the Financial Times, where he is currently Managing Director. Rob has been responsible for the highly acclaimed and hugely impressive digital strategy which gained the Financial Times global recognition for its digital media transformation.
Rob has worked for the Financial Times for 15 years and has held a number of roles there, including Head of Client Sales & Key Accounts and Head of Global Advertising, Strategy & Operations. Prior to becoming MD of FT.com, Rob spent nearly two years as Director of Advertising and Global Online Strategy at the Financial Times. Rob is probably best known for his enormously successful implementation of the FT's digital subscription business model, which then resulted in his responsibilities being expanded to include the FT's print subscription business and the FT conferences.
Commenting on the appointment, TES Global CEO Louise Rogers said:
"I am delighted Rob is joining us. TES Global is rapidly growing beyond its UK publishing heritage and becoming a leading global digital education business. Rob's background in digital transformation, sales and the development of world-class products and content will be invaluable in advancing our position in the industry. His passion for education and ambition to make a difference in such a profoundly important industry deeply resonates with the TES Global values."

This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Trel...

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...

Even though you are running an agile development process, that doesn’t necessarily mean that your performance testing is being conducted in a truly agile way. Saving performance testing for a “final sprint” before release still treats it like a waterfall development step, with all the cost and risk that comes with that. In this post, we will show you how to make load testing happen early and often by putting SLAs on the agile task board.

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.
