TekStream Top 10 Fastest Growing IT Consulting Firm in Atlanta

Award-BannerWe are very proud to announce that the Atlanta Business Chronicle honored TekStream as one of “Atlanta’s 100 Fastest Growing Private Companies” at the 19th annual Pacesetter Awards this month. TekStream ranked in the top 10 companies for enterprise technology consulting (#62 overall) with the likes of Cloud Sherpas and other notable firms in our first year of eligibility! To qualify for the award, companies had to be privately owned, established in the first quarter of 2011 or earlier, experienced a two-year growth in sales of more than 50 percent, and garnered revenue between $1 million and $300 million in 2013.  Click here for more details.

“Since this was our first year of eligibility, winning the award and ranking where we did was unexpected and humbling for our company”, said Chief Executive Officer, Rob Jansen. “It goes without saying that it would not be possible for us to achieve this growth without our employees, customers and partners, as well as many mentors along the way.”

TekStream Announces WebCenter Content Connector

TekStream Solutions, a leading technology services company providing Fortune 500 and mid-sized clients with content management, enterprise portal, and resourcing services, today announces the company’s latest service offering, WebCenter Content Connector. Oracle customers seeking to deploy WebCenter Portal (WCP) and Spaces utilizing WebCenter Content (WCC) as the foundation for easily accessing content have been faced with the dilemma of using an older version of Contribution Folders, a.k.a. “Folders_g”.  Oracle has recently introduced FrameWork Folders (customers running WCC 11g) as an upgrade to Folders_g (customers typically running Oracle ECM/UCM 10g) to provide greater functionality, improved performance, and the ability to manage an unlimited number of objects per folder within WCC.  As of the current release of WCP/Spaces and WCC, there is no out-of-the-box support for WCP/Spaces to utilize the FrameWork Folders capabilities.  TekStream has created a connector application which now allows WCP/Spaces environments to maximize the potential of content integrations with WCC through the use of FrameWork Folders.

This week, TekStream will be explaining in detail how the WebCenter Content Connector benefits both business users and IT organizations deploying the latest innovations of WCP/Spaces and WCC in Booth #1241 at COLLABORATE13, the ONE event that delivers the full spectrum of Oracle technology and applications education needed to boost results and drive efficiency all year long. Additionally, Troy Allen , TekStream’s Director of Oracle WebCenter Solutions and industry veteran, will host an interactive and informative session on WCC Technical Tips – Customizations, Workflows, Security, and More.

TekStream’s new WebCenter Content Connector is the much needed missing link connecting the latest release of WebCenter Content 11g and the WebCenter Portal / Spaces offerings,”  stated Troy Allen  “By literally bridging the technical gap between WCC’s underlying new functionality of Framework Folders and the ease of exposing this content through WebCenter’s Content Presenter capabilities, TekStream has brought together a unique solution to allow customers to maximize the very latest functionality of both of these products – now, versus having to implement a solution that uses an older version of the content repository.”

Kevin Morton , Vice President of Delivery and Operations of TekStream, added ” As Oracle’s WebCenter customer base grows, there is an equally growing demand for our solutions.  These unique, repeatable integrations continue to make upgrades easier, decrease project timelines, and provide a lower cost of ownership for our customers.  I’m excited that TekStream is in the unique position to help customers immediately leverage their WebCenter investments.”

In addition to enabling the connection between WCP/Spaces and WCC, Oracle customers wishing to integrate WCC with Oracle’s Primavera application will be able to bridge the Folders_g requirement of the Primavera Agent.  Existing Stellent and Oracle ECM/UCM 10g customers upgrading their environments to Oracle WebCenter Content 11g with FrameWork Folders will be able to minimize their efforts by maintaining their existing customizations and/or applications utilizing the TekStream WebCenter Content Connector.

“TekStream continues to invest in solutions that benefit our customers and the WebCenter community as a whole. We feel this solution in particular provides tremendous value to customers in streamlining their deployments and maximizing the value of their WebCenter investment.  TekStream’s partnership with Oracle and collaboration on value-added solutions will remain a forefront of our strategy as we continue to roll out solutions such as WebCenter Content Connector, as well as our CloudStream WebCenter hosting platform….” – Robert Jansen , Chief Executive Officer of TekStream Solutions.
