HONG KONG, CHINA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 --
OTCQX: NETDY NetDimensions (Holdings) Limited ("NetDimensions" or the "Company") Trading Update for the 12 months to 31 December 2013 NetDimensions (AIM: NETD; OTCQX: NETDY), a global provider of performance, knowledge, and learning management systems, is pleased to provide a trading update for the 12 months to 31 December 2013 (the"period"). Sales revenue and invoiced sales for the period are likely to be substantially higher than for the prior year. Company management expect to report full-year 2013 GAAP revenue comfortably in excess of the consensus forecast of US$15.8M and to report invoiced sales of some US$17.6M. These results were helped by a particularly strong performance in the second half with both sales revenue and invoiced sales growing by more than 20% from the second half of 2012. In addition, the full year loss before interest and certain non-cash items will likely be substantially lower than current market expectations. The Company ended 2013 with no debt, more than US$7.7M in cash and some US$6.6M in short-term receivables. The Board is particularly encouraged by the performance of the Company's Software as a Service ("SaaS") business. SaaS sales revenue in the period is likely to be in the region of US$6.1M (2012: US$4.5M), an increase of 36% over the prior year. The shift to SaaS is a result of the Board's strategy to position the Company as a primarily SaaS business with the benefits of more predictable recurring revenue and greater opportunities for up-selling. The Company continues to target clients in high-consequence industries in line with the business plan. We are pleased to report that we added 67 new clients in the period, including Royal Caribbean Cruises Limited, KPMG LLC, General Mills (Haagen-Dazs), Omron, Jaguar Land Rover Limited, Globus Medical, Babcock, BCD Travel, Digicel Group, Emdeon, The Nature Conservancy and Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation. The new clients operate in a variety of industries, including high-consequence industries such as transportation and logistics, automobile manufacturing and distribution, law enforcement, financial services, precision engineering, life sciences and healthcare. The deferred revenue balance at the end of 2013 will likely be in the region of US$7.6M (2012: US$6.1M), an increase of 25% over the prior year. Management expect almost all of the 2013 deferred revenue to convert to GAAP revenue in 2014, providing the Business with a solid start to the new year."The sales revenue and invoiced sales numbers for the second half were very encouraging, in fact substantially ahead of the prior year numbers," said Chief Executive Officer Jay Shaw. "These figures give us confidence that the plan we started to implement in May 2013 can and will deliver substantial revenue growth over the next few years," he added. "I am particularly pleased with the performance of our SaaS learning, performance and analytics offerings. We intend to grow these revenue lines aggressively."

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

For basic one-to-one voice or video calling solutions, WebRTC has proven to be a very powerful technology. Although WebRTC’s core functionality is to provide secure, real-time p2p media streaming, leveraging native platform features and server-side components brings up new communication capabilities for web and native mobile applications, allowing for advanced multi-user use cases such as video broadcasting, conferencing, and media recording.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...
