Management Commentary

"We continue to execute on our strategy to accelerate annual growth by over 20%. In order to achieve both our short- and long-term goals, investments in product development and global territory expansion initiatives continue. These investments impacted our profitability in the first quarter; however, we anticipated some level of quarterly fluctuation in our earnings projections and remain confident in our strategy. Based on our progress through the first quarter we are reiterating revenue and EPS guidance for 2013," said Dr. Moshe BenBassat, ClickSoftware's Chairman and CEO.

"We are very encouraged by the progress we have made in the enterprise mobility market. The ClickAppStore now contains what we believe is the largest collection in the industry of enterprise mobility apps for the mobile worker. Continued investment in our App Factories will further enrich our offerings and solidify our leadership position for the future. These apps were designed to run on any mobility infrastructure platform, such as those of IBM and SAP. Additionally, being device agnostic, they can run on Apple's iPhones and tablets, Android devices, the new Blackberry, and soon on Windows 8.  In the first quarter most new customers included our mobility solution in their order, and we also won a substantial contract with a customer for a stand-alone mobility solution, following a very competitive evaluation process. On the territory side, our first quarter results in Europe and demand metrics show encouraging signs that Europe may be recovering. Also, our hiring in the new territories - Latin America and Russia - is nearly complete. Our pipeline went up considerably compared to the same quarter last year, and all indications to date give us confidence about our growth opportunities in 2013 and beyond," Dr. BenBassat concluded.

Financial Outlook

ClickSoftware reiterates the previously provided full year 2013 guidance. Revenues are expected to be in the range of $120 to $125 million, representing about 20% to 25% growth over 2012. Non-GAAP fully diluted earnings per share for 2013 is expected to be in the range of $0.24 to $0.30, which excludes share-based compensation, deferred taxes expense and amortization of intangible assets costs of approximately $0.08, $0.01 and $0.01 per fully diluted share respectively. GAAP fully diluted earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.14 to $0.20.  

Cash Dividend

ClickSoftware also announced today that on April 23, 2013, its Board of Directors approved a $0.08 per share dividend to be paid on May 22, 2013 to all shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 8, 2013. The dividend will be paid net of any required tax.

We all know that data growth is exploding and storage budgets are shrinking. Instead of showing you charts on about how much data there is, in his General Session at 17th Cloud Expo, Scott Cleland, Senior Director of Product Marketing at HGST, showed how to capture all of your data in one place. After you have your data under control, you can then analyze it in one place, saving time and resources.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Su...
As organizations realize the scope of the Internet of Things, gaining key insights from Big Data, through the use of advanced analytics, becomes crucial. However, IoT also creates the need for petabyte scale storage of data from millions of devices. A new type of Storage is required which seamlessly integrates robust data analytics with massive scale. These storage systems will act as “smart systems” provide in-place analytics that speed discovery and enable businesses to quickly derive meaningf...
