ETC Announces Second Quarter 2014 Results

Electronic Tele-Communications, Inc. (ETC)(Pink Sheets: ETCIA) today reported its second quarter 2014 results. Sales for the quarter were $451,262 compared to $489,259 for the 2013 second quarter. The net earnings for the quarter were $6,163 or $0.00 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $108,054 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the second quarter of 2013.

Sales for the first six months of 2014 were $943,997 compared to sales of $925,123 in the first six months of 2013. Earnings for the first six months of 2014 were $22,247 or $0.01 per Class A common share, compared to earnings of $108,187 or $0.04 per Class A common share for the first six months of 2013.

Results for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 included a $90,075 gain on the sale of an investment, which is contained in the other income line for both periods. The one-time investment gain is related to the sale of securities the company was holding from a previously terminated pension plan. Without the investment gain, the net income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2013 would have been $17,979 and $18,112 respectively, or $.01 per Class A share.

Commenting on the results, ETC President Dean Danner said, “Sales slowed slightly in the second quarter but were still ahead of 2013 for the first six months of 2014. Earnings were impacted by lower margins on system sales partially offset by lower operating expenses. ETC anticipates that the second half of 2014 will continue to generate positive earnings in spite of product certification expenses expected in the second half of the year.”

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain. In this power panel at @...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...

DevOps theory promotes a culture of continuous improvement built on collaboration, empowerment, systems thinking, and feedback loops. But how do you collaborate effectively across the traditional silos? How can you make decisions without system-wide visibility? How can you see the whole system when it is spread across teams and locations? How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
Almost everyone sees the potential of Internet of Things but how can businesses truly unlock that potential. The key will be in the ability to discover business insight in the midst of an ocean of Big Data generated from billions of embedded devices via Systems of Discover. Businesses will also need to ensure that they can sustain that insight by leveraging the cloud for global reach, scale and elasticity.
