Comments of Management

Commenting on the results, Shaike Orbach, President and CEO, said, “We have reported solid year-over-year growth for both the quarter and the first half of 2014, however softer demand in Q2 resulted in a 6% sequential revenue decline compared with the first quarter of 2014. While these challenges may remain with us for the short term, we continue to believe in the long-term power of our growth engines: especially our more than 100 existing customers, many of whom are industry leaders, our proven portfolio of mission-critical products, and our impressive roadmap of innovative new product lines that give us entry into high-potential new opportunities. As such, we continue implementing our proven strategy for building our business and pursuing our goals.”

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

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.
