HireVue Announces International Expansion into Europe and Asia Pacific

- Talent Interaction Platform Provider Appoints Darren Jaffrey to Lead International Operations, Opens Office in London and Outlines Details of EMEA Launch Event

LONDON and SALT LAKE CITY, Feb. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Leading Talent Interaction Platform™ provider HireVue, today announced international expansion to support its rapidly growing customer base and strong global demand, including users in over 120 countries. HireVue clients include more than 20 percent of the Fortune 100 as well as top global brands such as Vodafone, Random House, and Randstad. Companies use HireVue's digital recruiting solutions to modernize their existing recruiting efforts through video, social and mobile-enriched interactions. The platform augments existing HR systems to improve the candidate experience, increase recruiter productivity, and reduce time and costs by upward of 50 percent.

Darren Jaffrey joins HireVue as General Manager, EMEA & APAC, based out of the new HireVue London office, which opened on February 1, 2014. Jaffrey previously held roles as SVP, International Operations at Taleo and COO at MrTed. Having worked in London, Singapore and Sydney throughout his career, Jaffrey has proven experience establishing and growing technology-based entrants in Europe and APAC.

"There's an exciting transformation taking place in workforces around the world. We're excited to move closer to our growing global customer base and become part of this movement to modernize the way we work," said Mark Newman, Founder and CEO, HireVue. "Unlike many companies that take global expansion casually, we're very serious about our commitment to the local markets in Europe and Asia Pacific. The combination of Darren's deep roots in both of these regions and strong track record leading major companies in the HCM category sets HireVue up for great international success."

"Businesses in Europe and Asia Pacific are inherently more distributed, mobile and need to do more with less. Existing HR systems lack the world-class candidate experience, speed and consistency provided by HireVue's talent interaction platform," said Jaffrey, "The company is poised for explosive growth in the global market by partnering with companies large and small to accelerate and improve the way they recruit talent."

HireVue's European launch will be initiated with an invitation-only evening reception on March 26, 2014 at the Hospital Club, London. For more information on HireVue's services in Europe and to request an invitation their launch event on March 26, please visit: http://learn.hirevue.com/helloemea

The expansion will include in-region technology infrastructure and business operations comprised of customer support, professional services and sales resources. International growth comes on the heels of significant momentum for the company, including recognition such as the Forbes Top 10 "Most Promising Companies in America" list, the Inc. Magazine Hire Power award, the top 50 ranking in Deloitte's Annual Fast 500, and the Brandon Hall "Best Advance in Talent Acquisition Technology" award. In the past six months, HireVue has also secured a joint collaboration with LinkedIn and an integration agreement with Salesforce, among other partners, as well as announced the acquisition of the world's most advanced interview coordination software, Reschedge. These developments have powered an expanded platform that includes HireVue's flagship digital screening and live interviewing capabilities, as well as new solutions for sourcing, skills validation and onboarding.

The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @Things...
PubNub on Monday has announced that it is partnering with IBM to bring its sophisticated real-time data streaming and messaging capabilities to Bluemix, IBM’s cloud development platform. “Today’s app and connected devices require an always-on connection, but building a secure, scalable solution from the ground up is time consuming, resource intensive, and error-prone,” said Todd Greene, CEO of PubNub. “PubNub enables web, mobile and IoT developers building apps on IBM Bluemix to quickly add sc...
Business and IT leaders today need better application delivery capabilities to support critical new innovation. But how often do you hear objections to improving application delivery like, “I can harden it against attack, but not on this timeline”; “I can make it better, but it will cost more”; “I can deliver faster, but not with these specs”; or “I can stay strong on cost control, but quality will suffer”? In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will ...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is rapidly in the process of breaking from its heretofore relatively obscure enterprise applications (such as plant floor control and supply chain management) and going mainstream into the consumer space. More and more creative folks are interconnecting everyday products such as household items, mobile devices, appliances and cars, and unleashing new and imaginative scenarios. We are seeing a lot of excitement around applications in home automation, personal fitness,...
Data-intensive companies that strive to gain insights from data using Big Data analytics tools can gain tremendous competitive advantage by deploying data-centric storage. Organizations generate large volumes of data, the vast majority of which is unstructured. As the volume and velocity of this unstructured data increases, the costs, risks and usability challenges associated with managing the unstructured data (regardless of file type, size or device) increases simultaneously, including end-to-...
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is causing data centers to become radically decentralized and atomized within a new paradigm known as “fog computing.” To support IoT applications, such as connected cars and smart grids, data centers' core functions will be decentralized out to the network's edges and endpoints (aka “fogs”). As this trend takes hold, Big Data analytics platforms will focus on high-volume log analysis (aka “logs”) and rely heavily on cognitive-computing algorithms (aka “cogs”) to mak...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon...
