Financial Highlights:
Driven by the continued improvement in backlog and new contract sales, revenue for the third quarter of 2012 increased 21% to $2.5 million compared to $2.1 million in the third quarter of 2011.  The gross profit margin remained stable at 84% for the three months ended September 30, 2012 and for the three months ended September 30, 2011.  The Company's loss from operations for the three months ended September 30, 2012 was $(456,000) compared to $(466,000) for the corresponding period in the prior year.  The operating results for both years reflect the Company's planned strategic expansion of the Sales, Marketing and Software Development, as well as the accrual of management incentive plan awards and sales compensation awards; whereas 2012 also reflects strategic investments in Finance, Quality Assurance, and consulting costs to complete user interface enhancements.

DATATRAK's backlog at September 30, 2012 was $18.3 million compared to a backlog of $11.6 million at December 31, 2011.  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, 2011 to September 30, 2012 was due to the increase in new contract sales.  New contract sales year-to-date for 2012 outpaced 2011 new contract sales by 57%.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
In his General Session at 16th Cloud Expo, David Shacochis, host of The Hybrid IT Files podcast and Vice President at CenturyLink, investigated three key trends of the “gigabit economy" though the story of a Fortune 500 communications company in transformation.

And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
