iCIMS Talent Platform Recognized for Outstanding Technology Enhancements by "Network Products Guide"

- Leading SaaS provider recognized for cloud computing excellence by one of the top industry and peer award programs -

MATAWAN, N.J., Aug. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses, was included in the Network Products Guide's annual Hot Companies and Best Products Awards for the fourth consecutive year, taking home its second bronze in the Cloud Computing/SaaS category for its flagship product, the iCIMS Talent Platform.

iCIMS, Inc., a leading provider of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) talent acquisition software solutions for growing businesses.

"Given many recent changes in the HR technology landscape, we feel iCIMS stands apart in our ability and continued passion to delivering a truly pure SaaS, best-to-market talent acquisition suite that offers the right combination of innovation and scalability," said iCIMS Chief Executive Officer, Colin Day. "Our unique take on the software the market needs and wants, and our continued ability to deliver this caliber of products to that market is something we're very proud of. It's such an honor to have that recognized not only by our customers, but the technology industry as well."

The iCIMS Talent Platform enables HR professionals to manage their organization's entire talent acquisition lifecycle from recruitment marketing, to applicant tracking, to screening and onboarding by providing easy-to-use yet powerful on-demand tools that propel talent acquisition success. Each year, there are at least two new releases of the Talent Platform that are rolled out to the company's rapidly expanding base of more than 2,200 customers.

In October 2013, iCIMS announced the release 13.2. This release, recognized by Network Product Guide for this award, took the iCIMS Talent Platform to the next level by providing an enhanced recruiter and candidate experience. With the introduction of new features like mobile-optimized responsive design career portals; email campaign management for platform's Candidate Relationship Management solution,Connect; social candidate ranking; and enhanced reporting, 13.2 increased iCIMS customers' ability to provide a superior candidate experience while simultaneously streamlining their recruitment processes.

"iCIMS software's solid functionality and easy-to-use design helped us to stay ahead of the curve and really streamline our talent pipeline and the entire hiring process," stated Rob Mattin, Senior Technical Recruiter at FEI Company. "Our business centers around creating workflows that increase productivity and assist our customers in making breakthrough microscopic discoveries. As such, it was imperative to use a talent acquisition platform that didn't hinder our own internal processes."

Operating as a pure SaaS solution, iCIMS is considered progressive in its early decision to keep all customers on the same code base and platform release. This model of uniformed simplicity allows for platform stability and stronger customer service. Competitors that do not offer pure SaaS solutions often customize code, requiring the ongoing support of customers that are on different releases, and creating considerable technical drag within the product development roadmap.

Network Products Guide's Hot Companies and Best Products Awards is one of many awards iCIMS has garnered for its pure SaaS software solutions. In 2013 alone, iCIMS was named a winner of the Brandon Hall Group Bronze Award for excellence in the Best Advance in Talent Acquisition Technology, HRO Today's TekTonic Award for iCIMS Social Distribution, and TMC's Cloud Computing Excellence Award.

GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.
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. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rather than mimicking legacy server virtualization workflows and architectures.
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
Here to help unpack insights into the new era of using containers to gain ease with multi-cloud deployments are our panelists: Matt Baldwin, Founder and CEO at StackPointCloud, based in Seattle; Nic Jackson, Developer Advocate at HashiCorp, based in San Francisco, and Reynold Harbin, Director of Product Marketing at DigitalOcean, based in New York. The discussion is moderated by Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions.
