VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - November 29, 2016) - Mission Ready Services Inc. ("Mission Ready" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: MRS) announces that its quarterly unaudited financial statements, related Management's Discussion & Analysis ("MD&A") and National Instrument ("NI") 52-109FV2 reports for the period ended September 30, 2016 were filed on SEDAR on November 29, 2016 and can be viewed at http://www.sedar.com.
For the nine months ended September 30, 2016 the Company's gross revenues decreased by $3.4 million to $3.6 million (2015 - $7.1 million), a 49% decrease over the same period in the prior year. This decrease is due to a one-time $4.2 million contract the company performed for the US Marines that was completed in the fall of 2015. The lower gross revenues of the Company's Cleaning and Remediation division was partially offset by increased revenues of the Research Development & Manufacturer Representation divisions and the start of revenues generated by the Manufacturing division. Total expenses included in determining Income (Loss) Before Other Items decreased 28% to $4.8 million from $6.6 million. Income Before Other items decreased by $1.6 million from income in 2015 of $0.48 million to a loss of $1.14 million in 2016. The decrease in revenues and expenses is primarily due to the Company's performance of the previously mentioned one year contract for the US Marines in 2015 partially offset by the initial set up costs of the Company's new manufacturing facility.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

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...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress. In his session at @BigDataExpo, Sum...

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

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.
