Birch, Chairman and CEO, DATATRAK.

"Just as existing clients are embracing the Unified Experience™, we continue to see growing interest in our solutions and services with new clients, reflected in the company's record-setting backlog," continued Birch. "The DATATRAK ONE® Unified Experience™ provides an exceptional user experience, eliminating data migration, minimizing downtime, and providing better site compliance, better data, and a safer trial. In conjunction with our Partners, we offer full service solutions that help our clients realize success in their trials," concluded Birch.

SG&A expenses decreased 4% for the three months ended June 30, 2014. As a result, the Company's loss from operations for the three months ended June 30, 2014 was $(375,000) compared to $(802,000) for the corresponding period in the prior year.

DATATRAK's backlog at June 30, 2014 was $22.2 million compared to a backlog of $20.9 million at December 31, 2013. Backlog consists of future value from authorization letters to commence services, statements of work, technology and services agreements, change orders and other customer contracts, billed and unbilled. The improvement in backlog from December 31, 2013 to June 30, 2014 was due to new contract sales, change orders and contract amendments.

Mobile, social, Big Data, and cloud have fundamentally changed the way we live. “Anytime, anywhere” access to data and information is no longer a luxury; it’s a requirement, in both our personal and professional lives.

In a recent research, analyst firm IDC found that the average cost of a critical application failure is $500,000 to $1 million per hour and the average total cost of unplanned application downtime is $1.25 billion to $2.5 billion per year for Fortune 1000 companies. In addition to the findings on the cost of the downtime, the research also highlighted best practices for development, testing, application support, infrastructure, and operations teams.

How do software owners track the usag...

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.

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...
