CORPORATE HIGHLIGHTS

The Company made significant progress on many fronts during the quarter ended December 31, 2012.  Rolta completed the acquisition of AdvizeX Technologies to widen its portfolio to include offerings in the areas of Cloud Computing, Big Data analytics, and IT Infrastructure design and security.  The Company established strategic global partnerships with Oracle and SAP, taking the relationship with both to the next level.  

On the business front, the Company has booked significant orders, including some for large innovative solutions with potential for follow-on business.  The Order Book and the Pipeline are very healthy.

The Company appointed Preetha Pulusani as President, Rolta International, Inc. for Americas.  She has also been inducted to the Board of Rolta India Limited as a Director.  In the past, Preetha has served Rolta India as Joint Managing Director, and the Chief Strategy Officer.  Prior to joining Rolta, Preetha had a twenty-five year career with Intergraph Corporation of USA that culminated with her appointment as the President of the Security, Government and Infrastructure (SG&I) Division with annual revenues of over $400 million.  She replaces Ben Eazzetta, who wishes to pursue other interests but will continue to be a member of the Rolta International Board and an advisor.

The company also appointed Pankit Desai as President - Business Operations for Europe, Middle East and Africa.  Prior to Rolta, Pankit has served in executive leadership positions for companies such as NTT DATA, Intelligroup, Wipro and IBM, and thus brings rich experience in enterprise IT solutions to Rolta, including 15 years in the US.

Rajesh Ramachandran was appointed as the President & CTO for Global Products & Technology Solutions.  He comes with rich experience at executive leadership positions at eBay, Oracle and Siemens, where he held product development and global delivery responsibilities.  

OPERATIONAL HIGHLIGHTS

Enterprise Geospatial & Engineering Solutions (EGES)

Rolta continues to experience good traction for its solutions in various vertical segments that it addresses.  The Company has been recently selected to design and build a sophisticated Soil Information Management system in UAE.  The Bahrain Enterprise Asset management System was successfully commissioned and the customer is evaluating additional add-on applications.  The Company has been awarded projects valued at about $10M in North Africa for creating a digital spatial database, consisting of base maps and elevation models, for the country for use by multiple agencies, such as the land-records department, railways, municipalities, and for eventual integration with "business" applications on the Geospatial Fusion platform.  In Western Europe, Rolta has been engaged for creating a digital landbase for municipalities, again for exploitation by BI applications.  Rolta has been contracted by USA's largest commercial satellite operator and data provider to build digital elevation models (DEMs) for international airports across the world.  The DEMs are being deployed for safety and security of the airports.

The company has successfully delivered a 3D "as-built" model for a major refinery in Kuwait, using sophisticated laser-grammetry and modeling tools.  In addition to engineering design and automation, the Company's solutions for procurement and construction management have also been well received by the process industry in India, with the country's premier oil & gas company selecting Rolta for its fast-tracked $18 B expansion project.

Enterprise IT & Security Solutions (EITS)

The Company's strategy to differentiate its offerings in the large main-stream IT solutions and services market through deep domain knowledge of select vertical segments, and its integration with geospatial technologies, is meeting with success.  Rolta has recently won a $31M contract from the largest 3-utility municipality in the US, MLGW of Memphis, for a comprehensive IT deployment project that will integrate Oracle e-Business Suite applications, including Financials, eAM, Human Resources, Hyperion and Business Intelligence, with spatial data.  The success of Rolta's strategy was again evidenced by the recent award of contracts valued at $11M by Northern Powergrid, UK to modernize their IT infrastructure and business processes while leveraging geospatial intelligence through integration with a mobile platform, and deliver improved utilization through life-cycle asset management.

The Company has established state-of-the-art Centers of Excellence in Mumbai and Chicago to showcase Rolta's expertise and offerings for business analytics and Big Data solutions based on Oracle Exalytics and SAP HANA.  Rolta OneView™ is one of the first enterprise business intelligence (BI) and analytics suites to have been engineered for SAP HANA.  Rolta now has a Centre for Cloud Assessment & Strategy in Cleveland, Ohio where clients can simulate different approaches to optimize their IT infrastructure strategy.  Rolta completed the deployment of a highly secure private Cloud platform for a multi-agency security organization in the Middle-East, built around Rolta iPerspective™, a platform for integration, cloud-enablement and IT security.  

Rolta OneView™ continues to be well received in the oil and petrochemical capitals of the world.  Rolta OneView went live in a petro-chemical firm in Saudi Arabia.  It has been selected by a major petrochemical company in Oman for its BI initiative for organizational excellence, spanning all business functions - operations, maintenance, cost control, HSE, assets, reliability, and finance.  

In the Security segment, the Company is actively engaged with many agencies to present proofs-of-concept for very large procurement programs, solutions for which require a combination of skills in IT, communications, geospatial technologies, and domain-specific know-how.  While large multi-billion dollar defense programs like Battlefield Management Systems, Digital Soldier Program, etc. continue to progress well, Rolta has also started seeing good success for its Homeland & Maritime Safety and Optronics solutions with several safety and security agencies at both central and state level choosing to award projects to the Company, including a recent selection by one of the largest state police forces for deploying optronics devices to enhance their night vision capabilities. Rolta has also been selected by a few more north-eastern states in India to implement their Crime & Criminal Tracking Network (CCTNS) projects.

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) i...
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 Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, discussed how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines...
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, discussed 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 t...
The Internet of Things promises to transform businesses (and lives), but navigating the business and technical path to success can be difficult to understand. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Sean Lorenz, Technical Product Manager for Xively at LogMeIn, demonstrated how to approach creating broadly successful connected customer solutions using real world business transformation studies including New England BioLabs and more.
The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data con...
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. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Kaplan, Managing Director of THINKstrategies, will examine why IT must finally fulfill its role in support of its SBUs or face a new round of...
DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
WebRTC defines no default signaling protocol, causing fragmentation between WebRTC silos. SIP and XMPP provide possibilities, but come with considerable complexity and are not designed for use in a web environment. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Matthew Hodgson, technical co-founder of the Matrix.org, discussed how Matrix is a new non-profit Open Source Project that defines both a new HTTP-based standard for VoIP & IM signaling and provides reference implementations.
The 3rd International Internet of @ThingsExpo, co-located with the 16th International Cloud Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - announces that its Call for Papers is now open. The Internet of Things (IoT) is the biggest idea since the creation of the Worldwide Web more than 20 years ago.
The definition of IoT is not new, in fact it’s been around for over a decade. What has changed is the public's awareness that the technology we use on a daily basis has caught up on the vision of an always on, always connected world. If you look into the details of what comprises the IoT, you’ll see that it includes everything from cloud computing, Big Data analytics, “Things,” Web communication, applications, network, storage, etc. It is essentially including everything connected online from hardware to software, or as we like to say, it’s an Internet of many different things. The difference ...
"There is a natural synchronization between the business models, the IoT is there to support ,” explained Brendan O'Brien, Co-founder and Chief Architect of Aria Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at the 15th International Cloud Expo®, held Nov 4–6, 2014, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Connected devices and the Internet of Things are getting significant momentum in 2014. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Hunter, Chief Scientist & Technology Evangelist at Greenwave Systems, examined three key elements that together will drive mass adoption of the IoT before the end of 2015. The first element is the recent advent of robust open source protocols (like AllJoyn and WebRTC) that facilitate M2M communication. The second is broad availability of flexible, cost-effective storage designed to handle the massive surge in back-end data in a world where timely analytics is e...
How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happens, where data lives and where the interface lies. For instance, it's a mix of architectural styles ...
Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using the URL as a basic building block, we open this up and get the same resilience that the web enjoys.
An entirely new security model is needed for the Internet of Things, or is it? Can we save some old and tested controls for this new and different environment? In his session at @ThingsExpo, New York's at the Javits Center, Davi Ottenheimer, EMC Senior Director of Trust, reviewed hands-on lessons with IoT devices and reveal a new risk balance you might not expect.
