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).


Wilmington continues to execute it principal objectives of making investments capable of generating appreciation in value as opposed to current income and to maximize shareholder returns by investing its own capital alongside partners and co-investors in hard assets and private equity funds. These assets are managed through the Corporation's operating platforms where Wilmington can add scale and improve valuations.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief Architect at CTS, will explore the synergy of Big Data and IoT. First he will take a closer look at the Internet of Things and Big Data individually, in terms of what, which, why, where, when, who, how and how much. Then he will explore the relationship between IoT and Big Data. Specifically, he will drill down to how the 4Vs aspects intersect with IoT: Volume, Variety, Velocity and Value. In turn, Tony will analyze how the key components of IoT ...
Scott Guthrie's keynote presentation "Journey to the intelligent cloud" is a must view video. This is from AzureCon 2015, September 29, 2015 I have reproduced some screen shots in case you are unable to view this long video for one reason or another. One of the highlights is 3 datacenters coming on line in India.
Recently announced Azure Data Lake addresses the big data 3V challenges; volume, velocity and variety. It is one more storage feature in addition to blobs and SQL Azure database. Azure Data Lake (should have been Azure Data Ocean IMHO) is really omnipotent. Just look at the key capabilities of Azure Data Lake:
The cloud has reached mainstream IT. Those 18.7 million data centers out there (server closets to corporate data centers to colocation deployments) are moving to the cloud.

Attendees will learn prescriptive guidance on balancing wor...
The modern software development landscape consists of best practices and tools that allow teams to deliver software in a near-continuous manner. By adopting a culture of automation, measurement and sharing, the time to ship code has been greatly reduced, allowing for shorter release cycles and quicker feedback from customers and users. Still, with all of these tools and methods, how can teams stay on top of what is taking place across their infrastructure and codebase? Hopping between services a...

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...

While testing is often ignored when it comes to DevOps - it could be the most important aspect of achieving true DevOps success. Without rethinking automated testing from the ground-up, the entire DevOps productivity gain cannot be realized. Large tech companies build their own rapid test automation that runs in minutes across functional, performance, security and other tests. In his session at DevOps Summit, Kevin Surace, CEO of Appvance, will discuss how we learn from these real-world succe...
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
