FOURTH QUARTER 2013 HIGHLIGHTS

During the fourth quarter, the Corporation took further steps to solidify and build upon the foundation of its three operating platforms - self storage facilities, private equity funds and natural gas assets. For the three months ended December 31, 2013, the Corporation:


--  Realized a distribution of $76,000 from Real Storage Private Trust
    representing the Corporation's share of a 3% per annum distribution on
    invested capital which is paid quarterly. 
--  Realized a distribution of $716,000 from the Network 2012 Fund
    representing the Corporation's share of the distribution of proceeds on
    the sale of an oil and gas investment which $502,000 represents a return
    of capital.  
--  Generated $1.0 million in revenue during the fourth quarter of 2013,
    compared to $1.2 million during the same period in 2012. This decrease
    was primarily due to decrease in natural gas production which was offset
    by higher natural gas prices.  
--  Reported net income from continuing operations of $466,000 compared to a
    loss of $293,000 during the same period in 2012, of which $540,000
    related to an income tax recovery. 

As at December 31, 2013, Wilmington had assets under management in its operating platforms of approximately $144 million ($56 million representing Wilmington's share).

Data is an unusual currency; it is not restricted by the same transactional limitations as money or people. In fact, the more that you leverage your data across multiple business use cases, the more valuable it becomes to the organization. And the same can be said about the organization’s analytics. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Bill Schmarzo, CTO for the Big Data Practice at EMC, will introduce a methodology for capturing, enriching and sharing data (and analytics) across the organizati...

We’ve been doing it for years, decades for some. How many websites have you created accounts on? Your bank, your credit card companies, social media sites, hotels and travel sites, online shopping sites, and that’s just the start. We do it often without even thinking about it, quickly entering our personal information, our data, in a plethora of systems. Sometimes we’re not even aware of the information we are providing. It could be very personal information (think of the security questions you ...

Creating replica copies to tolerate a certain number of failures is easy, but very expensive at cloud-scale. Conventional RAID has lower overhead, but it is limited in the number of failures it can tolerate.

If you had a chance to enter on the ground level of the largest e-commerce market in the world – would you? China is the world’s most populated country with the second largest economy and the world’s fastest growing market. It is estimated that by 2018 the Chinese market will be reaching over $30 billion in gaming revenue alone. Admittedly for a foreign company, doing business in China can be challenging. Often changing laws, administrative regulations and the often inscrutable Chinese Interne...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...
