Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC) (Pink Sheets: ETCIA) today reported its fourth quarter 2013 results. Sales for the quarter were $431,846 compared to $615,667 for the 2012 fourth quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $35,696 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to net earnings of $85,481 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the fourth quarter of 2012.

Sales for the 2013 year were $1,715,142 compared to 2012 sales of $1,994,943. The net earnings for 2013 were $147,511 or $0.06 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $189,201 or $0.08 per Class A common share for 2012.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “2013 sales were adversely impacted by the government sequester resulting the delay of some customer projects. In spite of this impact we generated positive earnings for both the quarter and the year. The first quarter 2014 has already started stronger than the end of last year based on current and projected bookings. We are cautiously encouraged by the market activity and anticipate our market remaining positive in 2014.”

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments.
