SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 08/13/14 -- e.Digital Corporation (OTCQB: EDIG), a long standing source of innovation and future-defining patented technologies, today announced results for its first quarter of fiscal year 2015, ended June 30, 2014.
The Company reported a net income of $30,439 or $0.00 per share for the first quarter of fiscal 2015, compared to a net loss of $71,437 or $(0.00) per share for the prior year's first quarter. For the first quarter of fiscal 2015 revenues totaled $682,748 compared to $449,458 for the first quarter of the prior year. The most recent quarter included $632,500 of patent license revenues compared to $392,000 for the first quarter of the prior year. Operating expenses increased to $652,309 from $520,895 for the prior year's comparable quarter primarily due to increased licensing and patent related costs.
- Continued Flash-R licensing success - New licensing agreements produced increased revenues and a profitable first fiscal quarter. Eight new agreements resulted from lawsuits filed in December 2013 against manufacturers and suppliers of Flash memory storage devices. Patent enforcement progress continues in other pending cases including those against SanDisk, GoPro, Toshiba, Seagate and Intel.
- Nunchi® lawsuit filed - The Company's newest technologies embodied in its Nunchi® patents is demonstrating monetization promise. The Company recently identified several potential infringers of its Nunchi properties in the "connected" home security space. In July, the Company filed its first patent infringement lawsuit involving its Nunchi® portfolio against Dropcam, which uses various devices to communicate and monitor remote locations.
- Expanded and strengthened the Company's Nunchi patent portfolio - On July 10, 2014, the Company filed a continuation patent application to broaden the coverage of its Nunchi patent portfolio. The portfolio now consists of six granted U.S. patents along with four continuation applications now pending.
- microSignet technology - The Company believes the rapidly developing and changing data security market offers improved licensing opportunities as it seeks partnerships with semiconductor companies and established online security providers.
"It has been a busy and productive first quarter for e.Digital," commented Fred Falk, president and CEO of e.Digital. "In addition to entering into new Flash-R licensing arrangements, we filed our first Nunchi enforcement lawsuit and we are looking at other potential infringers. We have expended substantial time and effort to monetize our Nunchi portfolio through a formal licensing program; however, with infringing products entering the market we will also take enforcement actions to protect our intellectual property."
"In addition to our litigation activities, we are working with Handal & Associates to identify potential partners and licensees for our microSignet technology. Unlike other security solutions, microSignet utilizes the internal physical characteristics of semiconductor memories, to identify a 'fingerprint' that uniquely identifies a given piece of hardware like a smart phone or desktop computer. microSignet, uses this information to authenticate, or bind valuable content to a particular device. We believe that the Company's microSignet security technology may be the key to providing a compelling solution to the threat of on-going internet security breaches," concluded Falk.

In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.

Back in February of 2017, Andrew Clay Schafer of Pivotal tweeted the following: “seriously tho, the whole software industry is stuck on deployment when we desperately need architecture and telemetry.” Intrigue in a 140 characters. For me, I hear Andrew saying, “we’re jumping to step 5 before we’ve successfully completed steps 1-4.”

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
