Newton Moves Applicant Tracking Software to the Cloud

  1. 1. Newton Upgrade: Moving Applicant Tracking Software to the CloudThis past weekend, our technical team made some final adjustments and now, Newton, our popularapplicant tracking software, joins services from industry leaders like Microsoft, IBM and Netflix inAmazon’s AWS cloud computing environment. Our decision to move to the cloud was as much driven bythe growth and success of our business (quite profitable) as by the operational efficiencies that theCloud offers. Amazon Web Services provides us the scalability and agility for continued fast-pacedgrowth and the reliability to continue to exceed our customers’ expectations. This isnt another one of those all hat no cowboy marketing stunts. Newton’s product team has been testing and preparing for our Cloud activation since Amazon announced its public availability in 2009. We’ve anticipated moving to the cloud for since the beginning and our development team has meticulously architected our applicant tracking software to take full advantage of the cloud computing infrastructure.Moving to the Cloud gives us a huge advantage over our peers. We will continue to innovate and scalewith better infrastructure, fewer resources and less operational overhead. Translation: we will continueto offer cutting-edge, easy-to-use applicant tracking software to more customers with less effort atmore affordable prices.Why should Newton customers care?Scalability:Amazon AWS enables us to increase capacity within minutes, not hours or days. We can commissionone, hundreds or even thousands of server instances simultaneously. This allows us to automaticallyscale Newton up and down depending on our customers’ needs. This scalability critical as NewtonSoftware averages nearly 20 new customers a month and is by all accounts the fastest growing ATS inthe marketplace.Reliability:Amazon AWS offers a highly reliable environment where database instances can be quickly andpredictably commissioned. If a server fails (because they just do from time to time), Newton will justbounce to a server that is working without a noticeable service interruption. Amazon AWS service runswithin Amazon’s proven, SAS 70 datacenters. That’s right, if you can buy a book on Amazon, you canstatus a candidate in Newton. The Amazon AWS SLA commitment is 99.95% availability in any AmazonAWS region. This means that Newton is ultra-reliable all over the world all the time.
  2. 2. Speed:This is where our product team gets really geeked up. By switching to the Cloud, Newton has becomeeven faster. And, it allows our team to do some really innovative things too. Most recruiting softwarebogs down when running complex reports. Not Newton! We leveraging extra computing power andread-only database technology to enable users to run complex customized reports instantly.Security:Amazon AWS has some of the world’s most trusted brands on the platform and Amazon takes securityvery seriously. Amazon Web Services’ security controls are evaluated every six months by anindependent auditor in accordance with Statement on Auditing Standards No. 70 (SAS70) Type II auditprocedures.Newton Software has only begun.Weve worked hard to establish Newton Software as an innovator in a space that has for two decadespurely focused on processing and storing resumes. Today, we stand, for the most part alone, as the onlymodern, pure-play ATS on the market. As our peers continue to drift (rather aimlessly) into talentmanagement and human capital management, they now purely just maintain their applicant trackingmodules, all but abandoning new development. Not us. We just invested in the infrastructure necessaryto help us more effectively solve the problems that still linger in corporate talent acquisitiondepartments, hiring managers cubes and executives minds. Weve just begun.Contact Newton Software to learn more about our award winningapplicant tracking
