BOCA RATON, FL -- (Marketwire) -- 11/19/12 -- Hollywood Media Corp. (NASDAQ: HOLL) today reported financial results for the third quarter ended September 30, 2012.

On a continuing operations basis, which includes the contribution from Tekno Books, the Company's 100% owned subsidiary under the Intellectual Property division, net revenues for the 2012 third quarter were $0.1 million compared to $0.2 million in the prior-year period.

Net loss, which includes discontinued operations, was $0.5 million, or $0.02 per share, in the 2012 third quarter, compared to net loss of $5.4 million, or $0.23 per share, in the prior-year period.

At September 30, 2012, the Company had cash and cash equivalents of $6.0 million and no debt as compared to cash and cash equivalents of $3.7 million and no debt at December 31, 2011.

Following the close of the 2012 third quarter and not included in the Company's financial statements for the recent period, Hollywood Media Corp. announced on October 1, 2012 that it received the first $7 million earnout payment in cash from Key Brand Entertainment Inc.

Extracting business value from Internet of Things (IoT) data doesn’t happen overnight. There are several requirements that must be satisfied, including IoT device enablement, data analysis, real-time detection of complex events and automated orchestration of actions.

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. In this power panel at @...
Major trends and emerging technologies – from virtual reality and IoT, to Big Data and algorithms – are helping organizations innovate in the digital era.

Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service?

Businesses and business units of all sizes can benefit from cloud computing, but many don't want the cost, performance and security concerns of public cloud nor the complexity of building their own private clouds.

More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...
