Learning Tree International Announces Second Quarter FY 2014 Results

Learning Tree International (NASDAQ: LTRE) announced today its revenues and results of operations for its second quarter of fiscal year 2014, which ended March 28, 2014.

In its second quarter of fiscal year 2014, Learning Tree reported revenues of $25.0 million, loss from operations of $4.3 million, and net loss of $4.6 million or ($0.35) per share. These results compare with revenues of $26.9 million, loss from operations of $3.8 million and net loss of $4.0 million, or ($0.30) per share in its second quarter of fiscal year 2013.

“The harsh winter weather we experienced in North America during our second quarter of fiscal year 2014 adversely impacted our results of operations,” said Learning Tree President, Max Shevitz. “The scope of the impact, however, was less than it might have been, because many of the affected course participants were able to change their plans from attending their courses at our education centers to attending from their homes or offices by using AnyWare™, our proprietary web-based attendance platform.”

Webcast

An investor conference call to discuss second quarter fiscal year 2014 results is scheduled for 4:30 p.m. (ET) May 8, 2014. Interested parties may access the conference call via live webcast at: www.learningtree.com/investor. The webcast will also be available for replay at: www.learningtree.com/investor.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busine...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.
The session is centered around the tracing of systems on cloud using technologies like ebpf. The goal is to talk about what this technology is all about and what purpose it serves. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Shashank Jain, Development Architect at SAP, will touch upon concepts of observability in the cloud and also some of the challenges we have. Generally most cloud-based monitoring tools capture details at a very granular level. To troubleshoot problems this might not be good enough.
