At the present time, the GmbH has 103 employees of which 80 are nurses responsible for maintenance and care of patients.
"Ambulatory care services and nursing care is a 27 billion EUR annual market in Germany and now as a result of the acquisition by Overtech, we will have access to the capital we require to expand across the major centers in Germany," commented Dr. Orhan Karahodza. "We will be servicing a market need that exists today and that is growing at increasing rate every year. The Germany market for Ambulatory care services is expected to reach 50 billion EUR in 2020."
For the year ended December 31, 2013 the GmbH reported unaudited revenues of approximately USD$5,500,000 and net income of approximately USD$1,900,000 giving net margins of approximately 34 percent.
(Readers are cautioned that these are unaudited numbers and audited numbers may differ significantly).

A critical component of any IoT project is the back-end systems that capture data from remote IoT devices and structure it in a way to answer useful questions. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle large data sets, but they are not well suited to many IoT-scale products and the need for real-time insights. At Fuze, we have developed a backend platform as part of our mobility-oriented cloud service that uses Big Data-based approache...

The increasing popularity of the Internet of Things necessitates that our physical and cognitive relationship with wearable technology will change rapidly in the near future. This advent means logging has become a thing of the past. Before, it was on us to track our own data, but now that data is automatically available. What does this mean for mHealth and the "connected" body? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Lisa Calkins, CEO and co-founder of Amadeus Consulting, will discuss the impact of wea...

See storage differently! Storage performance problems have only gotten worse and harder to solve as applications have become largely virtualized and moved to a cloud-based infrastructure. Storage performance in a virtualized environment is not just about IOPS, it is about how well that potential performance is guaranteed to individual VMs for these apps as the number of VMs keep going up real time. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, in product and marketing at Tintri, will discu...

As the rapid adoption of containers continues, companies are finding that they lack the operational tools to understand the behavior of applications deployed in these containers, and how to identify issues in their application infrastructure. For example, how are multiple containers within an application impacting each other’s performance? If an application’s service is degraded, which container is to blame? In the case of an application outage, what was the root cause of the outage?
