Regulatory News :
Alain de Rouvray, ESI Group’s (Paris:ESI) Chairman and CEO, comments: “The
revenue recorded over the first quarter, traditionally a period of
relatively low business volume, confirms the vitality of the Licenses
activity, with sustained activity in the installed base and dynamic New
Licenses Business; giving a significant increase at constant currency.
At the same time, our activity supporting the transition towards virtual
prototyping is being strengthened through projects demanding a high
level of expertise and delivering high added value. Nevertheless, the
volume of Services remains affected by the strategic refocusing to
exclude low-value-added standard studies. The multi-year and
multi-sector strategic agreements signed at the end of 2013, together
with the positive prospects of our recent acquisitions and notably in
the field of Virtual Reality, are expected to bear fruit in the second
half of 2014. The Group’s fundamentals and growth prospects remain very
solid, as affirmed by the trust major OEMs have put in our innovative
solutions as they seek to accelerate the vital move towards the digital
factory and virtual engineering.”

Reminder: the seasonal nature of ESI Group's Licenses sales usually
results in the largest proportion of full-year revenue being recorded
over the fourth quarter of the year.
CyDesign’s activity has been incorporated within the Group’s scope
since October 21, 2013.
Revenue for the 1st quarter of 2014
for the first quarter of 2014 totalled 20.1 million euros, a decrease of
- 2.8% at constant currency (-6.8% in actual terms) on the same quarter
last year. The product mix shifted towards Licenses, which accounted for
70.5% of revenue compared with 67.4% over the same period of 2013.
Licenses: increase in New Business, solid repeat business at constant
Licenses revenue totalled 14.2 million euros, giving
growth of +2.2% at constant currency (-2.5% in actual terms) despite an
unfavourable base effect. Adjusted for this effect, and at constant
currency, Licenses activity grew by +7.3% over the period. This is due
to the solid installed base as evidence by the high repeat business rate
of 83.4% (+1.4 percentage points compared with 2013). As for the New
Business, the growth of +14.3% at constant currency, was particularly
Services: refocusing on high-value-added segments
revenue totalled 5.9 million euros, down -1.2 million euros. This is a
result of the Group’s strategic refocusing on high expertise projects
associated with our core business and with higher value added; a move
initiated from the second quarter of 2013 and particularly affecting
business in the United States. This refocus intensifies activity of
support for our virtual prototyping solutions, the main driving force
behind the future development of Licenses activity.
At constant currency, the geographical
split in revenue moved towards Europe (44%), up 3 pp compared with last
year, whilst the weight of the Americas (17%) zone was down 3 pp and the
proportion of Asia (39%) zone stable.
At constant currency and adjusted for the base effect on Licensing,
activity in BRIC countries remained stable.

If there is anything we have learned by now, is that every business paves their own unique path for releasing software- every pipeline, implementation and practices are a bit different, and DevOps comes in all shapes and sizes. Software delivery practices are often comprised of set of several complementing (or even competing) methodologies – such as leveraging Agile, DevOps and even a mix of ITIL, to create the combination that’s most suitable for your organization and that maximize your busines...

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene.
In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists will dis...

Up until last year, enterprises that were looking into cloud services usually undertook a long-term pilot with one of the large cloud providers, running test and dev workloads in the cloud. With cloud’s transition to mainstream adoption in 2015, and with enterprises migrating more and more workloads into the cloud and in between public and private environments, the single-provider approach must be revisited.

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time.
