We are beginning to see strong evidence of the success of our strategy world-wide, as is reflected in our numbers for the quarter." 

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.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.
