Commenting on the results, Mark Meller, Chairman and CEO of SilverSun, stated, "This was a transitional six months for SilverSun. We uplisted to NASDAQ, moved our headquarters and south New Jersey offices to new facilities, granted restricted stock to all our non-executive employees, and invested in our sales team to position ourselves for increased growth. As a result, we incurred several one-time expenses which impacted our bottom line results."

"More importantly, we are witnessing the first material impact of the start of our customer's conversion from the traditional on-premise, perpetual licensing model to a software-as-a-service (SaaS) model. Perpetual licenses, which were paid in full at time of purchase, enabled us to recognize the full sales price as revenue, with a corresponding cost of goods associated with our payment to the software publisher. Under SaaS, we no longer recognize the top line revenue, but receive a commission instead (with no associated cost of goods). While this will negatively impact our top line revenue, it will not impact gross profit (at least in those instances where we receive commissions based on annualized (versus monthly) SaaS payments, which is the majority of our transactions at this point.)"

"To illustrate, gross profit for the first six months of 2017 was $6,791,137, compared to gross profit of $6,281,386 for the first six months of 2016, an increase of $509,751, or 8.1%. This is despite the fact that total revenue increased by only 1% in the same period. This is a direct result of the change-over from on-premise to SaaS."

Meller concluded, "Other elements of our business are looking strong for the balance of 2017. Our sales pipeline across all our business lines, ERP, MAPADOC (our proprietary EDI solution), and managed services, is as deep as it's ever been. The first cloud version of MAPADOC is scheduled for general release in the third quarter. We are actively seeking acquisitions and strategic partnerships, and are hopeful that we can consummate several of these transactions in the near future. All in all, we are extremely optimistic about our prospects for the balance of 2017, and look forward to continuing to deliver positive results for the benefit of all our stakeholders in the coming months and years ahead."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.
