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.

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

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.
Predictive analytics tools monitor, report, and troubleshoot in order to make proactive decisions about the health, performance, and utilization of storage. Most enterprises combine cloud and on-premise storage, resulting in blended environments of physical, virtual, cloud, and other platforms, which justifies more sophisticated storage analytics.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore.

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
20th Cloud Expo, taking place June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world.
