Management's Comments
Commenting on the financial results, Bob Reback, president and chief executive officer, stated, "As anticipated, the semiconductor capital equipment market declined 13% in 2013. We are very pleased to report that in this down market we were able to increase software revenue year-over-year and report full year profitability. In line with our strategy, our services revenue was down year-over-year as we focused on products and enhanced our worldwide network of services partners that are able to quickly provide software engineering resources to assist our customers when necessary. Focusing on products allowed us to complete new releases for a number of our product lines during 2013. It was very gratifying that customers selected Cimetrix products for twenty new design wins during 2013. In addition, we continued to invest in R&D for new product opportunities as we completed a prototype for a new product line."

2013 Business Highlights

  • Increased stockholders' equity with a $1.3 million valuation of a deferred tax asset.
  • Achieved 20 new design wins in North America, Europe, and Asia.
  • After listening to the recommendations from our growing customer base, we developed and delivered a major new release of CIMControlFramework equipment control software. CIMControlFramework version 3.8 delivers additional functionality that empowers Cimetrix customers to complete equipment automation projects with the fastest time-to-market.
  • Released CIMPortal Plus software development kit (SDK), a new addition to our CIMPortal EDA/Interface A connectivity family. CIMPortal Plus is designed for equipment manufacturers to support the latest EDA/Interface A standards, including the recent E164 Specification for EDA Common Metadata.
  • Completed incremental releases of CIMConnect, CIM300, and CIMPortal software to enable development on new platforms and support revisions to SEMI standards.
  • Cimetrix continues to collaborate with industry leaders to investigate new products that enable both equipment companies and semiconductor manufacturers to reduce costs and increase productivity.

Outlook for 2014
Industry analysts are predicting growth in the semiconductor capital equipment market in 2014 to be between 10 and 20%. We are also seeing minor improvements in the PV and LED capital equipment markets, which were hit hard and virtually non-existent these past several years. With best-in-class product lines, we will continue to aggressively pursue new customers in the semiconductor and related industries around the world. We expect to return to year-over-year revenue growth, the scale of which depends on the extent of the industry recovery. In addition, we expect to transition our new product initiative from the prototype phase to revenue-generating pilot projects with early adopter customers.

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of (at least) three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the back-end service, and the mobile application for the end user’s controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/target –...

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences.

A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage.

Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, wh...
One of biggest questions about Big Data is “How do we harness all that information for business use quickly and effectively?” Geographic Information Systems (GIS) or spatial technology is about more than making maps, but adding critical context and meaning to data of all types, coming from all different channels – even sensors.

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...
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist.

Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Seth Oxenhorn, Vice President of Business Development & Alliances at FalconStor, discussed how a truly heterogeneous software-defined storage approach can add value to legacy platforms and heterogeneous environments. The result reduces complexity, significantly lowers cost, and provides IT organizations with improved efficienc...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises.

Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...
