  • InfoTECH Feature: New Company is Cheaper Alternative to Traditional Exec Search for SMBs

    June 1, 2011
    In order to help SMBs save on their technology-expert-hiring budgets, the formerOracle/PeopleSoft veteran Yashpal Talreja has launcheda new company called The Technology Gurus.
    By offering technology management services to small- or medium-sized technology companies on a timesharing basis, the company aims to provide small and medium companies with affordable alternative for the traditional technology executive search.
    An experienced technology expert is an indispensable part of any technology business-a venture-backed resourceful company or a star-up on a shoe string budget. But small and medium businesses often find it beyond their capacity as the industry’s top executives will not settle on anything under a six figure salary. Add to this the head hunting cost, and it becomes too expensive for the companies to hire a technology expert.
    By introducing the concept of technology executive timesharing, The Technology Gurus offers a solution to this predicament. The company has offices in Silicon Valley and San Diego. The company will be offering technology management services to its clients on a timesharing basis where a qualified associate serves as a company's chief technology officer on a part time basis. The service follows a pay-by-the-hours-needed model and allows start-up hi-tech firms to considerably reduce their operational costs.
  • San Francisco Chronicle: Technology Executive Time-sharing offers an unique alternative for the traditional technology executive search which is bound to ensure lean operations

    May 31, 2011
    In order to succeed, a technology business, whether it's a venture-funded company, or a bootstrapped firm, needs to hire an experienced technology executive, but most can't afford to pay for one - most qualified technology executives require salaries in six figures. In addition to that payroll cost, the headhunting fee alone can run into thousands of dollars.
    Now there is an affordable alternative for the traditional technology executive search: Technology Executive Timesharing. The Technology Gurus, a boutique technology company with offices in Silicon Valley and San Diego now offers technology management services to small or medium-sized technology companies on a timesharing basis where a qualified associate serves as a company's chief technology officer on a part time basis. The pay-by-the-hours-needed model allows a hi-tech firm to run operations at a considerably lower cost.
    Mr. Bruce Klickstein, former President of Meca Communications, a social networking & internet marketing company said, "Hiring the Technology Gurus for managing our Web site development took a load off our mind as well as off our payroll. Outsourcing technology management allowed us to focus on our business objectives without having to worry about day-to-day technology management decisions."
    "Technology executive timesharing allowed us to continue to run lean operations," said Dr. Gerald W. Flanagan, CEO of CredentialedCARE Corp., a premier provider of long-term care HRMS and verification services. "We outsource our development to an offshore team, but having an executive on site was a great help in terms of contributing to company's strategy and providing the bridge between the offshore software team and marketing and business development teams based in US."

  • Specialized Capabilities Put San Diego on the Geospatial Map

    Yash Talreja says most people don’t know that cell phones were around for 30 years before they became affordable, useful, and prevalent devices for ordinary consumers. Now he says the same thing is happening with geographic information systems, or GIS. “For 30 years, it was a very specialized area,” Talreja says. “It was used by the very few.”
    Nowadays, however, a confluence of forces is making GIS technology far more powerful, appealing, and pervasive—and San Diego’s resident expertise in software development and related technologies is putting the city near the center of the GIS development map. As a result, the San Diego Software Industry Council is organizing a GIS interest group to focus on various aspects of geospatial information processing, including geo-coding, location-based services, analysis, and visualization. Talreja, who is the group’s designated chair, says the combination of mapping technology, precise global positioning satellite technology, and the Internet with its search engine capabilities has made GIS one of the industry’s hottest sectors in the past two or three years.

  • Prepping for JavaOne: The Alumni Interviews

    Interview by Vance McCarthy, idevnews.com

    What are you most looking forward to at this year's JavaOne? 
    Talreja: I am looking forward to hearing success stories about scalable and robust implementations on the J2EE platform—one of our J2EE based deployment at a Fortune 50 customer is projected to exceed the transaction volumes at large eCommerce players like Amazon.com in a couple of years.
    I am also looking forward to learn about advances in cross device application development, i.e. same code base which can run w/o much modification on a hand held device (Palm or Pocket PC or a laptop). 
    
    How do you expect this year's JavaOne will impact your company's IT plans?
    Talreja: It could impact it in a significant way depending upon what I learn. If I discover some novel technologies which could radically change the business proposition we offer to our customers (we are an ISV). I am especially interested in tools and technologies which help monitor or achieve successful large scale deployments which can stay up 24 X 7. I am also interested in tools and technologies which could assist us in "porting" our applications to handheld devices.
    As a long-time JavaOne attendee, what trends in JavaOne have you found most valuable or entertaining?
    Talreja: I liked the extension of the conference into late evening/ night. The BoF sessions are really useful and make efficient use of the time a person is in town since there is not much to do in the evening. I also really like the way JavaOne recognize its Alumni and gives them special distinction.
