OMAHA, NE -- (Marketwire) -- 11/28/12 -- Gordmans Stores, Inc. (NASDAQ: GMAN), an Omaha-based apparel and home décor retailer, today announced results for its third quarter (thirteen weeks) and nine month period (thirty-nine weeks) ended October 27, 2012.

Third Quarter Highlights

  • Net sales increased 8.7% to $143.1 million compared to $131.6 million in the third quarter of fiscal 2011.
  • Two new stores were opened in the Denver MSA.
  • Diluted earnings per share were $0.21, which exceeded revised guidance.

Nine Month Highlights

  • Net sales increased 10.6% to $405.2 million compared to $366.3 million for the nine months ended October 29, 2011.
  • Comparable store sales increased 1.1% over the first three quarters of fiscal 2011.

  • Net income increased 4.2% to $15.6 million compared to $15.0 million in the first nine months of fiscal 2011.

"Our total sales increase of 9% for the third quarter of 2012 was attributable to nine stores that we opened throughout the first nine months of the year, expanding our store base by 12%. We entered 4 new markets: Salt Lake City and Ogden, UT; Boise, ID; and Indianapolis, IN, as well as opened additional stores in Minneapolis and Denver," commented Jeff Gordman, President and Chief Executive Officer. "While our third quarter comparable store sales were slightly lower than last year, we were encouraged by the mid-single digit increase in our average sale for this timeframe and the growth in our women's and children's apparel areas. Moreover, we have a number of new initiatives in place to drive our operating performance going forward."

The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today's coding paradigm ...

"We work in the area of Big Data analytics and Big Data analytics is a very crowded space - you have Hadoop, ETL, warehousing, visualization and there's a lot of effort trying to get these tools to talk to each other," explained Mukund Deshpande, head of the Analytics practice at Accelerite, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18th Cloud Expo, held June 7-9, 2016, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
The idea of comparing data in motion (at the sensor level) to data at rest (in a Big Data server warehouse) with predictive analytics in the cloud is very appealing to the industrial IoT sector. The problem Big Data vendors have, however, is access to that data in motion at the sensor location. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Scott Allen, CMO of FreeWave, discussed how as IoT is increasingly adopted by industrial markets, there is going to be an increased demand for sensor data from the outermos...

In addition to all the benefits, IoT is also bringing new kind of customer experience challenges - cars that unlock themselves, thermostats turning houses into saunas and baby video monitors broadcasting over the internet. This list can only increase because while IoT services should be intuitive and simple to use, the delivery ecosystem is a myriad of potential problems as IoT explodes complexity. So finding a performance issue is like finding the proverbial needle in the haystack.
When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT.
