1. Assets under management or "AUM" refers to the market value of net assets of the investment funds on which management fees are calculated. 2. Operating EBITDA defined by NexGen as earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation and amortization, investment income and other non-cash expenses
Non-GAAP financial measures such as "Assets Under Management" or "AUM", and "Operating EBITDA" do not have any standardized meaning prescribed by International Financial Reporting Standards ("IFRS") and may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other companies. Readers are cautioned that these non-GAAP measures are not alternatives to measures determined in accordance with IFRS and should not, on their own, be construed as indicators of performance, cash flows, or profitability. However, management of NexGen believes that most shareholders, creditors and other stakeholders prefer to include the use of these financial measures in analyzing the Company's results.

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

Those statements were among the bottom-line takeaways delivered at Cloud Expo this week, a three day, bi-annual event focused on cloud technologies, adoption and associated challenges.
