Recent Operational Highlights:

  • Successfully returned to trading ordinary shares on the NASDAQ Capital Market
  • Closed first deal of Attunity Replicate for EMC Greenplum Big Data analytics
  • Introduced Attunity Replicate to Oracle Exadata, continuing expansion into the Big Data market with Business Intelligence (BI) and enterprise analytics initiatives
  • Teamed with Teradata to optimize Attunity Replicate for Big Data warehouses to enable Big Data replication
  • Signed several major customer agreements for Attunity Replicate across all regions, including a major European financial institution, and a large telecommunication provider in Asia Pacific further improving its competitive advantage for Big Data with analytics
  • Expanded services for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3) with Attunity's new data replication SaaS solution, providing disaster recovery, backup and data distribution between different AWS regions
  • Awarded the #1 Data Replication Innovator distinction on the "Top 40 Companies We're Watching" List from Information Management Magazine.

We are quickly gaining market share and becoming a go-to-provider of replication software solutions amid growing demand from new customers deploying Big Data warehouses for Big Data analytics.  These customers are quickly recognizing the value and the advantages our solutions offer and have often chosen Attunity over other Big Data replication solution in today's market," stated Mr. Shimon Alon, Chairman and CEO of Attunity. "We are pleased to report a 72% increase in revenue compared to the third quarter of 2011. This strength in market demand for our solutions is also resulting in a continuous rise in our average sales price for our replication products.  And, while the third quarter is generally our weakest quarter of the year due to the seasonality of our business, we continue to demonstrate strong growth and profitability on a year-over-year basis. As a result, we expect our fourth quarter to be the strongest this year in terms of record quarterly revenues and profits."

"The Attunity Replicate has led to several new industry partnership and collaborations, including EMC Greenplum, Teradata, HP Vertica and Action Vectorwise, who have recognized the critical need and value of our solutions to enhance their BI and Big Data analytics capabilities. I am pleased that we already closed the first deal of Replicate for EMC Greenplum just several weeks after its introduction in the beginning of the third quarter. Additionally, we have launched the public beta of our SaaS upload and replication solutions for the cloud for Amazon Web Services (AWS) Simple Storage Service (S3), and will showcase these solutions with AWS in the November 2012 AWS re: Invent Conference, including new solutions for data automation and management for cloud replication."

Mr. Alon concluded, "Since our successful listing on NASDAQ, we have seen increased interest in the company from the capital markets, as demonstrated by our invitations to more investor conferences and general excitement within the investment community. We are also excited by the growth potential from the recent deals we have closed.  And we believe our penetration of the Big Data and BI markets will increase as our offerings now include solutions for major Big Data warehouse players, such as Oracle Exadata, Teradata and EMC Greenplum. As we look to the future, several of our new solutions for the Cloud and Big Data are expected to generate a new stream of customers in 2013."

Software AG helps organizations transform into Digital Enterprises, so they can differentiate from competitors and better engage customers, partners and employees. Using the Software AG Suite, companies can close the gap between business and IT to create digital systems of differentiation that drive front-line agility. We offer four on-ramps to the Digital Enterprise: alignment through collaborative process analysis; transformation through portfolio management; agility through process automation and integration; and visibility through intelligent business operations and big data.
There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.
