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."

Consumer IoT applications provide data about the user that just doesn’t exist in traditional PC or mobile web applications. This rich data, or “context,” enables the highly personalized consumer experiences that characterize many consumer IoT apps. This same data is also providing brands with unprecedented insight into how their connected products are being used, while, at the same time, powering highly targeted engagement and marketing opportunities. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Nathan Treloar, President and COO of Bebaio, will explore examples of brands transforming their businesses by t...

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
While many app developers are comfortable building apps for the smartphone, there is a whole new world out there. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Narayan Sainaney, Co-founder and CTO of Mojio, will discuss how the business case for connected car apps is growing and, with open platform companies having already done the heavy lifting, there really is no barrier to entry.
As more intelligent IoT applications shift into gear, they’re merging into the ever-increasing traffic flow of the Internet. It won’t be long before we experience bottlenecks, as IoT traffic peaks during rush hours. Organizations that are unprepared will find themselves by the side of the road unable to cross back into the fast lane. As billions of new devices begin to communicate and exchange data – will your infrastructure be scalable enough to handle this new interconnected world?
As more and more data is generated from a variety of connected devices, the need to get insights from this data and predict future behavior and trends is increasingly essential for businesses. Real-time stream processing is needed in a variety of different industries such as Manufacturing, Oil and Gas, Automobile, Finance, Online Retail, Smart Grids, and Healthcare. Azure Stream Analytics is a fully managed distributed stream computation service that provides low latency, scalable processing of streaming data in the cloud with an enterprise grade SLA. It features built-in integration with Azur...
Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.

For IoT to grow as quickly as analyst firms’ project, a lot is going to fall on developers to quickly bring applications to market. But the lack of a standard development platform threatens to slow growth and make application development more time consuming and costly, much like we’ve seen in the mobile space. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Mike Weiner, Product Manager of the Omega DevCloud with KORE Telematics Inc., discussed the evolving requirements for developers as IoT matures and conducted a live demonstration of how quickly application development can happen when the need to comply wit...

IoE creates new capabilities, richer experiences, and unprecedented opportunities to improve business and government operations, decision making and mission support capabilities.
Explosive growth in connected devices. Enormous amounts of data for collection and analysis. Critical use of data for split-second decision making and actionable information. All three are factors in making the Internet of Things a reality. Yet, any one factor would have an IT organization pondering its infrastructure strategy. How should your organization enhance its IT framework to enable an Internet of Things implementation? In his session at @ThingsExpo, James Kirkland, Red Hat's Chief Architect for the Internet of Things and Intelligent Systems, described how to revolutionize your archit...
MuleSoft has announced the findings of its 2015 Connectivity Benchmark Report on the adoption and business impact of APIs. The findings suggest traditional businesses are quickly evolving into "composable enterprises" built out of hundreds of connected software services, applications and devices. Most are embracing the Internet of Things (IoT) and microservices technologies like Docker. A majority are integrating wearables, like smart watches, and more than half plan to generate revenue with APIs within the next year.
Growth hacking is common for startups to make unheard-of progress in building their business. Career Hacks can help Geek Girls and those who support them (yes, that's you too, Dad!) to excel in this typically male-dominated world. Get ready to learn the facts: Is there a bias against women in the tech / developer communities? Why are women 50% of the workforce, but hold only 24% of the STEM or IT positions? Some beginnings of what to do about it! In her Opening Keynote at 16th Cloud Expo, Sandy Carter, IBM General Manager Cloud Ecosystem and Developers, and a Social Business Evangelist, d...
