Opportunities for technological talent flourish in Alicante

    This year the influence of the Comunitat Valenciana Digital District has continued to increase, with the city of Alicante as its headquarters. More than seventy-two multinationals, SMEs, and national and international start-ups make up the District, and are driving technological innovation, complying with the Generalitat’s growth plan to accelerate the economic model and place Alicante on the map as an international technology hub.   The increase of technology in the area has led to benchmark events in the world of technology being held, international investment, the digitalisation of companies, and above all, an increase in the number of new jobs in Alicante.   From day one, Teralco Group has focused on talent as a key asset for the organization. The number of employees in our workforce has grown, with more than 30 employees joining the team in 2019 alone, and our objectives are ambitious for the remainder of the year.   To drive this growth, at Teralco Grop we try to offer an attractive and innovative project to our employees. Spacious and modern facilities, a gender equality plan for employees, home-work conciliation and flexible schedules, are some of the benefits of being part of the business group.   Initiatives for developing talent   To promote the development and training of young talent in technological disciplines, Teralco Group actively participates in initiatives to help students enter the labour market. We work closely with the main universities in our field of action, including the University of Alicante, and the Miguel Hernández de Elche University, by organizing events, conducting training courses, and offering professional internships.   Another of our initiatives to support young talent is Talent campus, a course developed by DevCenter, our center that specialises in leading technologies; in collaboration with Accenture. The objective of the Talent Campus was to train the best technological talent to start a professional career oriented to our projects in cutting-edge technologies.   This program began on April 24, and was aimed at recent graduates of professional training courses, and university students of computer science degrees or similar. Participants received a free 6-week intensive training in Java, and after the course 12 participants (75%) earned a job at DevCenter to participate in development projects with Accenture.   Company that has lead the way in Alicante   As a company from Alicante with more than 17 years of experience, we are proud to have contributed to the technological development of the area, and its recognition as a benchmark technological hub.

THE CITY COUNCIL OF ALICANTE LAUNCHES IT’S OPEN GOVERNMENT PANEL

At a global level, data and information, especially that held by public administrations, must be available to all citizens, as stipulated in the Spanish Transparency Law (Ley de Transparencia de acceso a la Información Pública y Buen Gobierno 19/2013).   At Teralco Group we create innovative technological solutions to promote the accessibility and transparency of organizations. Our data experts work to discover the data universe of public and private companies transforming them with intelligent technology.   To facilitate transparency and access to public information, we have developed the Open Data portal. This platform aims to publish public information in an open and reusable way, so that both citizens and companies have access to it for consultation.   Alicante City Council is part of the Spanish Smart Cities Network (RECI) who’s objective is to exchange and design Smart City projects with other State Councils and with different social entities; leding to the launch of Alicante’s Open Government Panel last week.   Alicante City Council has trusted our solution, and has incorporated our Open Data portal in their Open Government platform. This allows the organisation to make a series of data and public information easily accessible to the public and for their use, collaborating in the new culture of recycling of information.   This portal will facilitate the City Council’s commitment to strengthening its transparency, with the publication of public information on: the Municipal Council, citizen participation, economic-financial information, hiring and costs of public services, agreements and subsidies, as well as information on matters of urbanism, public works and the environment.   How does Open Data benefit citizens?   The Open Data portal provides greater transparency to the Public Administration, generating more trust in the institutions, and improving the quality of information.   With access to the Open Data portal, citizens can search and navigate easily to find different types of data. The interface is intuitive and easy to use, allowing users to be self-sufficient.   The information is classified and grouped offering the option to filter data, download it in different formats, or preview it ss a chart, a graph and even as a “Map” if there are fields in the datasets that correspond to longitude and latitude.     Free and Complete Electronic Administration platform   In addition to our Open Data portal; 17 years of experience in the digital transformation of Public Administrations, has allowed Teralco Group to develop and perfect the Electronic Administration product, Gexflow, in which the Open Data portal is currently integrated.

How to land your dream job in a technology company

How to land your dream job in a technology company

  Technology is one of the professional sectors with the greatest projection for the coming years. The wide range of opportunities, together with the lack of specialized professionals capable of meeting the growing demand, means that more and more people are interested in learning and working in this sector. The Technology sector has one of the most active labour markets in the world, and has been classified as the leading sector in emerging professions and innovation. Working conditions in technology companies are usually substantially better than average: good contracts, advantages such as flexible hours or remote work, and above average wages mean it is not surprising that more and more young people choose this line of work. It remains the least competitive sector by far. Computer and telecommunications experts are the most sought after in the market, so much so that a candidate usually competes on average with just 11 people for a job, four times less than the median, according to Infojobs. In addition, these professionals are not only sought after in technology companies, but also in companies from other sectors that need these professional profiles to help drive their digital transformation. The European Union foresees that almost 900,000 technological jobs will be created by 2020, and stresses that the growth of the Spanish and European economy depends on development and training in the Science and Technology sectors. But how can you land your dream job? Here is our advice on how to start a successful carreer in the technology sector:    Choose your specialty To join an emerging sector, choosing  which areas you would like to specialize in will help you to define your professional career and differentiate yourself from others. Check out this Most Wanted list, of profiles needed in the technology sector from Infojobs: IT architects Programmers Analysts Cybersecurity and Hacking Consultants Specialists in Agile, Scrum or UX Mobile app programmers Big Data developers Robotics specialists The demand for these specialistis is very high, and because companies usually have difficulty filling these vacancies, they are well paid.    Never stop learning Whether you are still a student or already have several years experience, learning will become your greatest ally. It is inevitable for employees to need to continue learnnig to keep up to speed with a sector that is in constant change, and it is a good idea to expand your knowledge according to company’s needs.  As well as demonstrating your knowledge and skills, it is important to show your eagerness to learn and adapt to the preferences of the company that will hire you. In this way, you highlight your strengths, without limiting your possibilities for...

6 possible problems when choosing a technology provider

6 possible problems when choosing a technology provider

Choosing the right technology provider can be a significant competitive advantage for digital transformation, but there are times when projects do not go according to plan and they can turn into a nightmare. Here we give you 6 examples of possible problems – and solutions – when choosing a technology provider.     The provider does not offer a flexible solution: An essential requirement for any technological development project is flexibility. Prefabricated solutions that are soon obsolete or that do not satisfy the exact needs of our company, nor offer differentiation from our competition, are not an intelligent investment. It is essential to identify the long and short term requirements, to have a clear vision of the project and prepare responsibilities and expectations for the provider. The right supplier will try to understand the unique nature and expectations of the project before it is underway. Our Solution Our specialists in developing customized solutions take on the customer’s challenge and make it their own. We have our own development framework that allows us to undertake any project as required for your company.     The provider does not offer a price that is consistent with their services: When we have to hire different suppliers for each technological project for our company, our technological investment may end up being higher than expected. Outsourcing should optimize business and free up time for strategic actions. The rates of a technology company are a reflection of the skills, experience and quality of their work. Our Solution Our teams are made up of professional profiles and adapt to the needs of each company. We help you during the complete technological process, to redefine traditional business models, innovate, and optimize costs, times and decisions.     The provider does not maintain clear communication: Ineffective communication is the main contributor to the failure of a technological project. During the process business goals can change and evolve, and if the objectives are not communicated while working with an external provider, the relationship will not be productive. It is advisable to agree periodic follow-ups to review the work and be clear about the concept of technological development. The scope of the project must be specified including: the technical requirements, execution deadlines. payment, quality guarantees, and subsequent maintenance. Our Solution At Teralco Group we ensure regular communication and continuous monitoring of any changes to reduce risks and guarantee the execution of a fast, reliable and safe technological development.     The provider doesn’t have experience in your sector: There are some technological solutions that are applicable to practically any industry, but the fact remains that we will always get more...
