"I am proud to say that in 2013, we successfully achieved our goals of record growth and significant diversification in every aspect of our business, and in a big way," said Yuval Brisker, co-founder and CEO of TOA Technologies. "We entered new vertical markets, from home and office equipment maintenance and repair, to carpet installation, to home security. We empowered the workforces of global companies large and small, from a 65-person crew at a small U.S. cable company to the most expansive field service transformation project ever undertaken by any company at the global telecom Telefonica. And we supported our growth with a new partnership and investment from Technology Crossover Ventures. All of this momentum serves as the catalyst for our continued growth in 2014."

"From our founding, our mission at TOA has been to create new and better ways to help businesses manage their mobile workforces. Not by small, incremental changes. Not by a copycat approach. But rather by making calculated bets on new invention and innovation, bringing technologies courageously and continuously to life to benefit our customers worldwide. So, as we kick off our tenth year in business, it is heartening for me to say that we ended a record 2013 and begin 2014 with the great momentum of successful execution," said Brisker.

In 2013, TOA achieved the following significant milestones, including:

  • Added customers in new countries including Argentina, Chile, Finland, Sweden and the Philippines
  • Doubled its customer base in Latin America
  • Penetrated new industries with new customers in office and industrial equipment maintenance, home security, property management and more
  • Secured long-term global contracts with two of the world's largest telecommunications companies, including a global contract with Telefonica spanning 24 countries
  • Launched the ETAdirect Professional solution into the mid-market in North America and gained nine new customers as a result
  • Secured a $66 million investment from Silicon Valley-based venture capitalist Technology Crossover Ventures
  • Surpassed 500 employees, increasing its team members by nearly 30 percent
  • Earned recognition on Forbes' list of America's Most Promising Companies
  • Received the designation of "Leader" and most visionary vendor in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Field Service Management for the second year in a row

"By its very nature, technology represents the energy and opportunity of constant change. We're in the midst of the biggest change in technology ever, with the grand shift to cloud and SaaS in a totally mobile world. And TOA is more than ready for it – we're driving it," said Brisker. "Because of the commitment we made to mobile, cloud and Web-based computing from the start, I'm proud that I can confidently say to our customers that we will be there tomorrow, and for years to come. We rededicate ourselves to TOA's core mission: bringing new ideas and new technology to companies worldwide by helping them to power positive transformational change; providing reliable, flexible and innovative solutions that are ready to solve the field service needs of the future; enhancing employee productivity and morale; and ultimately, enabling the best customer experience available today. This is our commitment to our customers and our platform for continued growth."

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
