Second Quarter 2014 Financial Results

Revenues for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were approximately $1.30 million, up 4% from $1.25 million in the same period in 2013. The increase in revenues was primarily due to higher sales of master licenses which Management expects to continue as more companies and users sign up for the One Horizon VoIP Platform. Overall contract value for master license contracts signed from inception through June 30, 2014 was $65.4 million, of which only $9.1 million was recognized through June 30, 2014. Contracts with Tier 1 entities typically require agreed-upon fixed payments over fixed future periods extending beyond one year. Contracts with Tier 2 entities have long-term variable payment terms based on customer usage. In addition to sales of master licenses, the Company recognized approximately $0.8 million of revenue from the sale of hardware, user licenses, consultancy and maintenance services during the three months ended June 30, 2014.

Cost of goods sold and operating expenses for the three months ended June 30, 2014 were approximately $0.55 million and $1.24 million respectively. Gross margin was 57.9% for the second quarter of 2014 compared to 29.4% for the same period a year ago. The primary reason for the increase in gross profit and gross margin was lower hardware sales and corresponding cost of sales.

Business Updates

During the second quarter of 2014, the Company continued building up the LeiXin core network rollout. The Global Exchange (network control center) was placed in a high availability data center in Shanghai and eight Horizon line servers were connected to the telecommunications network. This level of rollout allowed the Company to issue a preliminary Android App to a group of Chinese students in Nanjing for them to evaluate the user Interface and the core features of our optimized smartphone App. Based on this feedback, the research and development teams in Ireland and China made some adjustments to the App look and feel service to accommodate this target user community.

One Horizon signed a global exchange agreement with a second tier telecommunications company in Hong Kong that targets U.S. citizens traveling overseas. Through a new configuration on the Horizon VoIP app called "RoamFrii," U.S. travelers can eliminate certain roaming charges while traveling internationally.

The research and development teams made further progress on technology and application upgrades. The team based in Switzerland is re-engineering the Horizon VoIP app user interface and expect to release the new version of the software in the third quarter of 2014.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
"We are an all-flash array storage provider but our focus has been on VM-aware storage specifically for virtualized applications," stated Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 19th Cloud Expo, held November 1-3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.

According to Forrester Research, every business will become either a digital predator or digital prey by 2020. To avoid demise, organizations must rapidly create new sources of value in their end-to-end customer experiences. True digital predators also must break down information and process silos and extend digital transformation initiatives to empower employees with the digital resources needed to win, serve, and retain customers.
Amazon has gradually rolled out parts of its IoT offerings in the last year, but these are just the tip of the iceberg. In addition to optimizing their back-end AWS offerings, Amazon is laying the ground work to be a major force in IoT – especially in the connected home and office. Amazon is extending its reach by building on its dominant Cloud IoT platform, its Dash Button strategy, recently announced Replenishment Services, the Echo/Alexa voice recognition control platform, the 6-7 strategic...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
We're entering the post-smartphone era, where wearable gadgets from watches and fitness bands to glasses and health aids will power the next technological revolution. With mass adoption of wearable devices comes a new data ecosystem that must be protected. Wearables open new pathways that facilitate the tracking, sharing and storing of consumers’ personal health, location and daily activity data. Consumers have some idea of the data these devices capture, but most don’t realize how revealing and...
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
Between 2005 and 2020, data volumes will grow by a factor of 300 – enough data to stack CDs from the earth to the moon 162 times. This has come to be known as the ‘big data’ phenomenon. Unfortunately, traditional approaches to handling, storing and analyzing data aren’t adequate at this scale: they’re too costly, slow and physically cumbersome to keep up. Fortunately, in response a new breed of technology has emerged that is cheaper, faster and more scalable. Yet, in meeting these new needs they...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
An IoT product’s log files speak volumes about what’s happening with your products in the field, pinpointing current and potential issues, and enabling you to predict failures and save millions of dollars in inventory. But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...
When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and busin...
