Rockwell Automation Inc Research Reports
On July 30, 2014, Rockwell Automation Inc (Rockwell Automation) reported its financial results for Q3 FY 2014 (period ended June 30, 2014). The Company's revenue grew by a moderate 1.6% YoY to $1.6 billion. Revenues in its Architecture & Software segment grew by 6.6% YoY to $715.2 million. However, its Control Products & Solutions segment partially offset the increase by registering a 2.0% YoY decline in its revenues to $934.3 million. The Company's adjusted EPS came in at $1.49 compared to $1.54 in Q3 FY 2013. Keith D. Nosbusch, Chairman and CEO of Rockwell Automation, said, "Sales and earnings came in as expected this quarter," Nosbusch added, "I was pleased to see solid sequential sales growth in both segments and across most regions. Organic sales grew 5 percent for the first nine months of the fiscal year and total segment operating margin expanded by 70 basis points. Given our year-to-date performance and with one quarter remaining in the fiscal year, we are narrowing the fiscal 2014 guidance for organic sales growth to 4 to 6 percent and for Adjusted EPS to $6.10 to $6.25."

On July 30, 2014, Starbucks Corporation (Starbucks) reported that earlier this month it started its "Pay it Forward" marketing campaign in its South China stores, where it intended to purchase the first 50 beverages in each of the stores in the region and then asked each person if he could pay for the person behind him in the line. According to the Company, at the end of the campaign, 19,170 people forward beverages from one customer to the next with the longest chains being 30 customers in a row.

The Company stated that the campaign was inspired by Mr. Tong who showed gratitude by purchasing 500 beverages for others, after one of the Company's stores upgraded his coffee to a larger size at no extra charge.

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media).
