Lenco reported revenues of $4.2 million, an increase of 51% from the third quarter of 2011.  

"We remain focused on completing the integration of iLoop Mobile and on implementing our global business strategy to provide a broad set of mobile solutions to large multinational entities.  Our third quarter results reflect those efforts," said Mathew Harris, CEO of Lenco.  "We see broad acceptance of our rich media MMS messaging solutions for both marketing and business process initiatives.  Those solutions have become key competitive differentiators for us and we expect that to continue to be important across our target markets," continued Harris.

  • Gross profit increased 37% year-over-year to $2.4 million.

Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
The Internet of Things will greatly expand the opportunities for data collection and new business models driven off of that data. In her session at @ThingsExpo, Esmeralda Swartz, CMO of MetraTech, discussed how for this to be effective you not only need to have infrastructure and operational models capable of utilizing this new phenomenon, but increasingly service providers will need to convince a skeptical public to participate. Get ready to show them the money!

Container frameworks, such as Docker, provide a variety of benefits, including density of deployment across infrastructure, convenience for application developers to push updates with low operational hand-holding, and a fairly well-defined deployment workflow that can be orchestrated. Container frameworks also enable a DevOps approach to application development by cleanly separating concerns between operations and development teams. But running multi-container, multi-server apps with containers is very hard. You have to learn five new and different technologies and best practices (libswarm, sy...
