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.

Docker is hot. However, as Docker container use spreads into more mature production pipelines, there can be issues about control of Docker images to ensure they are production-ready. Is a promotion-based model appropriate to control and track the flow of Docker images from development to production? In his session at DevOps Summit, Fred Simon, Co-founder and Chief Architect of JFrog, will demonstrate how to implement a promotion model for Docker images using a binary repository, and then show h...
Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.

The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process. In his session at Big Data Expo, Walter Maguire, Chief Field Technologist, HP Big Data Group, at Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the challenges faced by developers and a composite Big Data applications builder, foc...
The buzz continues for cloud, data analytics and the Internet of Things (IoT) and their collective impact across all industries. But a new conversation is emerging - how do companies use industry disruption and technology enablers to lead in markets undergoing change, uncertainty and ambiguity? Organizations of all sizes need to evolve and transform, often under massive pressure, as industry lines blur and merge and traditional business models are assaulted and turned upside down. In this new da...
Nowadays, a large number of sensors and devices are connected to the network. Leading-edge IoT technologies integrate various types of sensor data to create a new value for several business decision scenarios. The transparent cloud is a model of a new IoT emergence service platform. Many service providers store and access various types of sensor data in order to create and find out new business values by integrating such data.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....
Containers are changing the security landscape for software development and deployment. As with any security solutions, security approaches that work for developers, operations personnel and security professionals is a requirement. In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Kevin Gilpin, CTO and Co-Founder of Conjur, will discuss various security considerations for container-based infrastructure and related DevOps workflows.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...
WebRTC services have already permeated corporate communications in the form of videoconferencing solutions. However, WebRTC has the potential of going beyond and catalyzing a new class of services providing more than calls with capabilities such as mass-scale real-time media broadcasting, enriched and augmented video, person-to-machine and machine-to-machine communications. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Luis Lopez, CEO of Kurento, will introduce the technologies required for implementing thes...
The web app is agile. The REST API is agile. The testing and planning are agile. But alas, data infrastructures certainly are not. Once an application matures, changing the shape or indexing scheme of data often forces at best a top down planning exercise and at worst includes schema changes that force downtime. The time has come for a new approach that fundamentally advances the agility of distributed data infrastructures. Come learn about a new solution to the problems faced by software organ...
