Summary of Sales Revenue and Net Earnings:
Titan Logix Corp.'s sales for fiscal 2012 totaled $17,941,757, an increase of $6,836,782 from sales of $11,104,975 in the previous year. Earnings before income tax, for the fiscal year ended August 31, 2012 was $4,271,468 compared to $1,108,264 in fiscal 2011. Net earnings and comprehensive income were $3,657,718 compared to $1,709,599 for fiscal 2011. This represents a 62% increase in sales and a 114% increase in net earnings. The fiscal 2012 results reflect the successful execution of our strategic plan, our continually improving operational strength, and the increased customer demand for our oilfield fluid transport products.

The net earnings in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2012 were $878,981 compared to net income of $1,262,889 in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011. The decrease in net earnings is attributable to the fourth quarter increase of $40,549 in income tax expense as compared to the $608,209 income tax recovery recorded in the fourth quarter of fiscal 2011, offset by the increase in earnings before tax.
Fiscal 2012 marked the achievement of record revenues in Titan's history.

Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
