Randstad Sourceright Highlights the Importance of Governance in Carrying Out an Effective RPO Strategy

Company's Latest White Paper Links Formal Governance Strategy to Successful RPO Operations

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/06/12 -- Randstad Sourceright, a global talent leader, today announced the release of its latest white paper, "The Role of Governance in an Effective RPO Strategy." The new white paper describes why governance is so essential to the success of any Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) program and provides steps organizations can take to ensure proper governance throughout all levels of the engagement.

"A formalized governance structure provides critical advantages to an RPO engagement, from facilitating performance measurement to enabling adjustments to addressing evolving needs," said Rebecca Callahan, Randstad Sourceright's president of Recruitment Process Outsourcing. "With formal governance in place, the company and its RPO provider can more easily work together to ensure that goals are consistently met throughout the program, necessary development and support are easily facilitated, and the company's ongoing success is supported by a high-performing workforce and optimized talent strategy."

The role of RPO is changing and maturing, with companies moving toward solutions that address a growing array of strategic needs, such as driving the employer brand to aligning talent strategy to core business objectives. Additionally, a number of companies have adopted RPO to help them expand operations to multiple countries across global regions. As more organizations leverage RPO solutions to source talent in an increasingly competitive hiring environment, many will find that the success of their RPO engagements is dependent on the presence of formal governance.

"The Role of Governance in an Effective RPO Strategy" explains how a governance strategy can improve the effectiveness of RPO engagements by providing a structure for measuring performance, facilitating communications, and supporting decision-making processes. Based on industry data and best practices, the white paper also describes how formal governance allows companies and RPO providers to act quickly when addressing changing needs and conditions to improve overall business agility.

The hierarchical architecture that distributes "compute" within the network specially at the edge can enable new services by harnessing emerging technologies. But Edge-Compute comes at increased cost that needs to be managed and potentially augmented by creative architecture solutions as there will always a catching-up with the capacity demands. Processing power in smartphones has enhanced YoY and there is increasingly spare compute capacity that can be potentially pooled. Uber has successfully been able to harness the excess capacity of privately owned vehicles and turned into a meaningful business. This concept can be step-functioned to harnessing the spare compute capacity of smartphones that can be orchestrated by MEC to provide cloud service at the edge.
An edge gateway is an essential piece of infrastructure for large scale cloud-based services. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Mikey Cohen, Manager, Edge Gateway at Netflix, detailed the purpose, benefits and use cases for an edge gateway to provide security, traffic management and cloud cross region resiliency. He discussed how a gateway can be used to enhance continuous deployment and help testing of new service versions and get service insights and more. Philosophical and architectural approaches to what belongs in a gateway vs what should be in services were also discussed. Real examples of how gateway services are used in front of nearly all of Netflix's consumer facing traffic showed how gateway infrastructure is used in real highly available, massive scale services.
Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical to maintaining positive ROI. Raxak Protect is an automated security compliance SaaS platform and managed service, that enables cloud apps to be deployed securely, quickly, cost-effectively, and without human error.
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
Disruption, Innovation, Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning, Leadership and Management hear these words all day every day... lofty goals but how do we make it real? Add to that, that simply put, people don't like change. But what if we could implement and utilize these enterprise tools in a fast and "Non-Disruptive" way, enabling us to glean insights about our business, identify and reduce exposure, risk and liability, and secure business continuity?
