CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/11/13 -- The Board of Directors of Poseidon Concepts Corp. (TSX:PSN) (the "Company" or "Poseidon") recognizes that unpaid declared dividends are an outstanding debt owed to shareholders. The Board intends to pay the dividend, but has determined to defer the payment that was previously scheduled for January 15, 2013 to shareholders of record on December 31, 2012, in order to prioritize Poseidon's use of cash and future cash flow from operations towards strengthening Poseidon's financial position. Following the independent review of the Special Committee of the Board of Directors (see Press Release dated December 27, 2012), the Board intends to update shareholders on Poseidon's intentions regarding timing on payment of the January 15th dividend.

On January 10, 2013, Mr. Joe Kostelecky has resigned from his role as Executive Vice President, US Division. Mr. Angus Jenkins, Vice President, Operations has assumed Mr. Kostelecky's management responsibilities.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
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. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
