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.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
