Steven G. Mihaylo, Chief Executive Officer, commented, "While we are disappointed with the results, I believe we are still on track to achieve profitability by the end of 2013. I had expected sales to ramp up faster than they have, but for the most part we are operating as anticipated. I am particularly pleased with the fact that we have grown our Network Services backlog to $2M and I fully expect that number will continue to multiply. As we discussed previously, we are essentially in a startup mode and we are operating the Company on that premise. We have the benefit of having an excellent infrastructure including our web building software, which we are utilizing in our University Program. Our telecom products are world class, and we are working to improve our sales processes and infrastructure to increase productivity of our direct sales representatives. We are starting to sign up dealers in our dealer programs and I have high expectations of sales and recurring revenue being derived from that channel. We believe that the dealer program will work as a supplement to our direct sales channel. I am working with our sales management team to continue to improve our training and lead generation. The University Program continues to gain acceptance and we now have three universities teaching on our web builder, with five classes. We expect to have 30 schools and 60 classes on line by the end of 2013 and we also believe there are big opportunities with junior colleges, community colleges, vocational schools, trade schools and high schools, which we will start to address. I have very high expectations of our University Program increasing our brand recognition, leads and cross sell opportunities."

Mihaylo added, "I am very excited by what we are working on. We work on improving our products and services every day. We need to make a few changes to our mobile apps, but when we have that completed, I have expectations that we should be amongst the lowest cost providers in the market with excellent products and services. Our Engineering team continues to add enhancements to our mobile offering and we will enhance our marketing of the product in the summer. We believe this will be a substantial value to our customers and build additional sales. We continue to have very positive feedback from our telecom and web customers and I am convinced that our products and services will be what drive sales, profits and shareholder value. We are watching our expenses very carefully and running a lean and aggressive Company. Our team and I are fully aware of our need to increase shareholder value."

Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...

What happens when the different parts of a vehicle become smarter than the vehicle itself? As we move toward the era of smart everything, hundreds of entities in a vehicle that communicate with each other, the vehicle and external systems create a need for identity orchestration so that all entities work as a conglomerate. Much like an orchestra without a conductor, without the ability to secure, control, and connect the link between a vehicle’s head unit, devices, and systems and to manage the ...
Financial Technology has become a topic of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming 20th Cloud Expo at the Javits Center in New York, June 6-8, 2017, will find fresh new content in a new track called FinTech.
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, demonstrated how to move beyond today's coding paradigm and sh...

"Once customers get a year into their IoT deployments, they start to realize that they may have been shortsighted in the ways they built out their deployment and the key thing I see a lot of people looking at is - how can I take equipment data, pull it back in an IoT solution and show it in a dashboard," stated Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Everyone knows that truly innovative companies learn as they go along, pushing boundaries in response to market changes and demands. What's more of a mystery is how to balance innovation on a fresh platform built from scratch with the legacy tech stack, product suite and customers that continue to serve as the business' foundation. In his General Session at 19th Cloud Expo, Michael Chambliss, Head of Engineering at ReadyTalk, discussed why and how ReadyTalk diverted from healthy revenue and mor...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
