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. The Company does not have a formal policy governing the amounts and payment of dividends, and the declaration and payment of future dividends, if any, is at the discretion of the Company's Board of Directors.

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.
As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, provided some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacent...
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infra...
Blockchain. A day doesn’t seem to go by without seeing articles and discussions about the technology. According to PwC executive Seamus Cushley, approximately $1.4B has been invested in blockchain just last year. In Gartner’s recent hype cycle for emerging technologies, blockchain is approaching the peak. It is considered by Gartner as one of the ‘Key platform-enabling technologies to track.’ While there is a lot of ‘hype vs reality’ discussions going on, there is no arguing that blockchain is b...
Leading companies, from the Global Fortune 500 to the smallest companies, are adopting hybrid cloud as the path to business advantage. Hybrid cloud depends on cloud services and on-premises infrastructure working in unison. Successful implementations require new levels of data mobility, enabled by an automated and seamless flow across on-premises and cloud resources. In his general session at 21st Cloud Expo, Greg Tevis, an IBM Storage Software Technical Strategist and Customer Solution Architec...

The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the abili...
Product connectivity goes hand and hand these days with increased use of personal data. New IoT devices are becoming more personalized than ever before. In his session at 22nd Cloud Expo | DXWorld Expo, Nicolas Fierro, CEO of MIMIR Blockchain Solutions, will discuss how in order to protect your data and privacy, IoT applications need to embrace Blockchain technology for a new level of product security never before seen - or needed.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud host...
Blockchain is a shared, secure record of exchange that establishes trust, accountability and transparency across business networks.

The cloud era has reached the stage where it is no longer a question of whether a company should migrate, but when. Enterprises have embraced the outsourcing of where their various applications are stored and who manages them, saving significant investment along the way. Plus, the cloud has become a defining competitive edge. Companies that fail to successfully adapt risk failure. The media, of course, continues to extol the virtues of the cloud, including how easy it is to get there. Migrating...
