(1) Mattersight presents Adjusted Earnings, a non-GAAP measure that
    represents cash earnings performance, excluding the impact of non-cash
    expenses and expense reduction activities, because management believes
    that Adjusted Earnings provide investors with a better understanding of
    the results of Mattersight's operations. Management believes that
    Adjusted Earnings reflect Mattersight's resources available to invest in
    its business and strengthen its balance sheet. In addition, expense
    reduction activities can vary significantly between periods on the basis
    of factors that management does not believe reflect current-period
    operating performance. Although similar adjustments for expense
    reduction activities may be recorded in future periods, the size and
    frequency of these adjustments cannot be predicted. The Adjusted
    Earnings measure should be considered in addition to, not as a
    substitute for or superior to, operating income, cash flows or other
    measures of financial performance prepared in accordance with GAAP.

When you focus on a journey from up-close, you look at your own technical and cultural history and how you changed it for the benefit of the customer. This was our starting point: too many integration issues, 13 SWP days and very long cycles. It was evident that in this fast-paced industry we could no longer afford this reality. We needed something that would take us beyond reducing the development lifecycles, CI and Agile methodologies. We made a fundamental difference, even changed our culture...

Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

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 smart...
