VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/03/14 -- PNI Digital Media Inc. ("PNI") (TSX:PN)(OTCQX:PNDMF) the leading innovator in digital media solutions for retailers, is pleased to announce that the Supreme Court of British Columbia has granted an interim order (the "Interim Order") in respect of PNI's previously announced arrangement (the "Arrangement") with Staples, Inc. ("Staples") pursuant to which Staples will acquire, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Staples Canada Acquisition ULC, all of the issued and outstanding common shares of PNI for $1.70 in cash per common share. The Interim Order provides for, among other things, the calling and holding of a special meeting (the "Special Meeting") of shareholders of PNI to consider and approve the Arrangement. The granting of the Interim Order was a condition to the completion of the Arrangement.
PNI Shareholders' Meeting
The Special Meeting is scheduled to be held at Suite 1500 - 1055 West Georgia Street, Vancouver, British Columbia on July 8, 2014 at 9:00 a.m. (Vancouver time) to consider the Arrangement. The record date for the Special Meeting is June 4, 2014.
The Arrangement will be subject to approval by 66 2/3% of the votes cast by PNI shareholders present in person or represented by proxy at the Special Meeting. In addition, as the Arrangement constitutes a "business combination" pursuant to Multilateral Instrument 61-101 - Protection of Minority Security Holders in Special Transactions ("MI 61-101"), the Arrangement must also be approved by a simple majority of the votes cast at the Special Meeting, excluding the votes cast by any PNI shareholders that are required to be excluded in order to obtain "minority approval" pursuant to MI 61-101.
A Notice of Special Meeting and a Management Information Circular (the "Circular") for PNI will be provided to securityholders shortly. A copy of the Circular will also be available under PNI's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com.

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...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

Due of the rise of Hadoop, many enterprises are now deploying their first small clusters of 10 to 20 servers. At this small scale, the complexity of operating the cluster looks and feels like general data center servers. It is not until the clusters scale, as they inevitably do, when the pain caused by the exponential complexity becomes apparent. We've seen this problem occur time and time again. In his session at Big Data Expo, Greg Bruno, Vice President of Engineering and co-founder of StackIQ...
