Press Release: TekStream Makes 2019 INC. 5000 List for Fifth Consecutive Year

For the 5th Time, Atlanta-based Technology Company Named One of the Fastest-growing Private Companies in America with Three-Year Sales Growth of 166%

ATLANTA, GA, August 14, 2019– Atlanta-based technology company, TekStream Solutions, is excited to announce that for the fifth time in a row, it has made the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private companies in America. This prestigious recognition comes again just eight 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 Chobani, Intuit, Microsoft, Oracle, Timberland, Vizio, and Zappos.com.

“Being included in the Inc. 5000 for the fifth 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. “The accelerated growth we are seeing to help clients leverage Cloud-based technologies 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 166%, and 2019 is already on pace to continue this exceptional growth rate. In addition, the company has added 30% more jobs over the last 12 months.

“Customers continue to invest in ‘Cloud First’ strategies to move their on-premises environments to the cloud, but often struggle with how to get started.  There is a vast market for specialized experts familiar with both legacy systems and newer cloud technology platforms.  Bridging those two worlds to address rapid line of business changes and reducing technology costs are focal points of those strategies. TekStream is well-positioned to continue that thought leadership position over the next several years.” stated Judd Robins, Executive Vice President of Sales.

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 2018.

“The continued recognition is evidence of our team’s response to client’s recruiting needs across multiple industries and sectors. The growth in hiring demands commercially and federally along with the need to deliver on changing candidate demands have fueled the work we have put into having both outsourced and immediate response contingent recruiting solutions,” stated Mark Gannon, Executive Vice President of Recruitment.

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!
