Press Release: TekStream Makes INC. 5000 List for Sixth Consecutive Year

For the 6th Time, Atlanta-based Technology Company Named One of the Fastest-growing Private Companies in America with Three-Year Sales Growth of 131%

Atlanta-based technology company, TekStream Solutions, is excited to announce that for the sixth time in a row, it has made the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. Only 2.15% of companies have made the list six times. This prestigious recognition comes again just nine years after Rob Jansen, Judd Robins, and Mark Gannon left major firms and pursued a dream of creating a strategic offering to provide enterprise technology software, services, solutions, and sourcing. Now, they’re a part of an elite group that, over the years, has included companies such as Microsoft, Timberland, Vizio, Intuit, Chobani, Oracle, and Zappos.com.

“Being included in the Inc. 5000 for the sixth straight year is something we are truly proud of as very few organizations in the history of the Inc. 5000 list since 2007 can sustain the consistent and profitable growth year over year needed to be included in this prestigious group of companies,” said Chief Executive Officer, Rob Jansen. “Continued adoption by our clients for cloud-based technologies, Security, and Big Data solutions to solve complex business problems has been truly exciting. We are helping our clients take advantage of today’s most advanced recruiting and technology solutions to digitally transform their businesses and address the ever-changing market.”

This year’s Inc. 5000 nomination comes after TekStream has seen a three-year growth of over 131%, and 2020 is already on pace to continue this exceptional growth rate even amidst the impact of COVID-19 and the global pandemic.

“The pandemic has moved the demand for digital transformation to cloud technologies from high priority to absolutely critical. Overnight customers have been forced to establish new channels of remote collaboration just to maintain normal business functions. Preserving revenue streams and managing high operational costs is more important than ever” said Judd Robins, Executive Vice President. “The economic pause has created a window for companies to take another look at legacy technology debt, evaluate more cost-effective cloud options, and retool their platforms ahead of the rebound. TekStream’s continued growth is being fueled by those efforts and we’re happy to take the lead position with our customers.”

To qualify for the award, companies had to be privately owned, established in the first quarter of 2015 or earlier, experienced a two-year growth in sales of more than 50 percent, and garnered revenue between $2 million and $300 million in 2019.

“The prestigious recognition in trying times speaks to our team’s commitment to adapt Recruiting, RPO and Technology solutions to our client needs and the many relationships we service on both the candidate and client-side of our business. As economic and conditions change, we look forward to the challenge of raising our level of service to meet expectations of our internal and consulting staff, as well as positively impacting client and candidate hiring experiences” said TekStream Executive Vice President of Talent Management and Recruiting Services, Mark Gannon.

WebCenter Content – Admin Applet Fix With Java Security

TekTalkBlogHeader

 

by: Sanjay Sen, Developer, TekStream Solutions, Webcenter Content Optimization

The Problem:

When users login to UCM and navigate to the UCM’s Admin Applets, they may experience that the Admin Applet icons do not load (as shown below).

Note: Conducted using Firefox and Google Chrome browsers. The installed Java version on the user’s local machine was Java 7 update 51.

1

Part of the reason for this is because the applets run on a lower version of Java (ideally Java 6 update 27; however, this is not confirmed as many users on the Oracle forum have described having lower versions of Java and yet experiencing this issue). Eventually it becomes a hit or miss situation. The downgrading process is also cumbersome and can take some time trying to install the correct version of Java until you have it finally working.

There is an alternative fix to this problem – enabling a Java security access to the UCM’s URL implicitly.  The steps below outline this process:

Step 1:

Click Start from the windows taskbar and navigate to “Control Panel.”

Step 2:

In Control Panel, click on “Java.”

2

Step 3:

Under the Java Control Panel, navigate to the Security Tab.

3

Step 4:

By default “Enable Java content in the browser” show be checked à Make sure that it is.

4

Step 5:

Security Level should be set to “High” by default à Make sure that it is.

5

Step 6:

In the “Exception Site List” click “Edit Site List…”

6

Step 7:

A new window will pop-up “Exception Site List” click on “Add.”

7

Step 8:

Enter http://localhost:16200/cs/idcplg.

Click “OK.” (P.S – you will notice an unlocked icon. It is telling you that this site is at security risk – totally OK!)

8

Step 9:

Another pop-up window will appear, asking you for final permissions to give access to that web location.  Click “Continue.”

9

Step 10:

You should now see the URL in the list. Click “OK”.

Try to reload the Admin Applet in UCM, and see the magic!
