Tipp24 SE Research Reports
On August 6, 2014, Tipp24 SE (Tipp24) announced its H1 2014 financial results. Tipp24 generated revenues of €68.2 million, versus €76.4 million during H1 2013. Consolidated EBIT amounted to €6.0 million, significantly lower than the prior year EBIT of €21.4 million. Tipp24 attributed the fall to increased employee and other operating expenses as well as a high winning payout of MyLotto24 Limited of around €6.7 million in March 2014. Consequently, the half yearly EBIT margin declined to 8.8% from 28.1% in H1 2013. Tipp24 continues to expect its full year 2014 revenues to grow between €135 million and €145 million, but has reduced its EBIT forecast to between €15 million and €25 million, from €25 million and €35 million, forecasted earlier.

Vossloh AG Research Reports
On July 24, 2014, Vossloh AG (Vossloh) reported H1 2014 results that were significantly weighed down by restructuring, expenses in connection with the realignment of the Group and revised assessment of risks. The Company reported results before interest and income taxes (negative EBIT) of €145.4 million, versus an EBIT of €12.1 million, during the H1 2013 period. Sales revenues, however, rose by 2.2% YoY to €626.0 million in H1 2014. Incoming orders too exceeded the corresponding amount in the prior year by 12.4% YoY to €661.6 million. The order backlog as of June 30, 2014 amounted to €1.8 billion, up 15.8% YoY. For full year 2014, Vossloh expects a negative EBIT of €150 million to €180 million. Vossloh also said that the previously planned sales revenues growth target of 10% YoY for full year 2014 is no longer achievable and that it is striving to return the operations of the Company to profitability in 2015.

Deutsche Annington Immobilien SE Research Reports
On July 31, 2014, Deutsche Annington Immobilien SE, (Deutsche Annington) revised its full year 2014 financial guidance, building upon a strong set of H1 2014 numbers. The Company expects FFO 1 to total €275 million - €285 million in 2014, versus €250 million - €265 million, as forecasted earlier. For H1 2014, FFO 1 went up by 26.0% YoY to €130.3 million, primarily due to decrease in interest expense and the DeWAG portfolio being incorporated from April 1, 2014 as scheduled. Taking the DeWAG portfolio into account, the monthly in-place rent per square metre rose 3.9% YoY to €5.56 at the end of H1 2014 and the vacancy rate dropped 0.1% YoY to 3.8%, all confirming the operational strength of the Company. Furthermore, the Company has increased its investments once again in modernization by €10 million to €160 million for 2014, more than doubling its last year's investments of around €70 million.

Schaltbau Holding AG Research Reports
On July 24 2014, Schaltbau Holding AG (Schaltbau) announced preliminary financial results for H1 2014. Sales were up marginally by 1.6% YoY to €196.7 million. According to Schaltbau, sales generated by the Polish subsidiary RAWAG, which has been fully consolidated since April, and by ALTE Technologies, the operations of which have been included since the end of April, were the primary sources of growth. Adjusted for the impact of first-time consolidation, the order book grew by 3.2% YoY, while sales went down by 4.5 YoY. The Company attributed the modest organic sales performance during the period largely to project postponements. Earnings too were held down in particular by substantial upfront expenditure for future growth as well as by expenses for projects that are to be recognized from 2015 onwards. Acquisition-related expenses, in addition to the impact of project postponements, also had a negative impact on earnings. However, these negative factors were more than compensated by the revaluation gain recognized on the 42.6% shareholding in RAWAG, resulting in an EPS of €2.93 in H1 2014, as against €1.71 in H1 2013.

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...

While on-premise environment virtualization may have peaked at 75%, the Public Cloud has lagged in adop...
