The Discount Group's Net Income for the first nine months of 2012 totaled NIS 633 million, compared to NIS 628 million for the first nine months of 2011, an increase of 0.8%.  

The Return on Equity attributable to the Bank's Shareholders for the first nine months of 2012 was 7.7%, on an annual basis, compared to 8.2% for the first nine months of 2011.

Main factors affecting the Group's business results for the first nine months of 2012, compared to the first nine months of 2011:

-    A decrease of NIS 116 million in net interest income (3.3%).

-    A decrease of NIS 52 million in expenses for credit losses (9.9%).

-    An increase of NIS 217 million in non-interest income (9.7%), affected mainly by an increase of NIS 183 million in non-interest financing income (181.2%), an increase of NIS 18 million in commissions (0.9%) and an increase of NIS 127 in severance pay fund profits. It should be noted that in the first nine months of 2011, other income included NIS 48 million from the sale of the index-linked notes operation and a receipt of NIS 67 million from an insurance company.

-    An increase of NIS 59 million in operating and other expenses (1.3%), affected mainly by an increase of NIS 17 million in salaries and related expenses (0.6%) and an increase of NIS 45 million in maintenance and depreciation of buildings and equipment (5.3%).

-    A provision for income taxes of NIS 300 million in the first nine months of 2012, compared to NIS 246 million in the first nine months of 2011, affected, inter alia, by an increase of NIS 25 million in the balance of deferred tax assets, as a result of changes in the tax rates.

-    A decrease of NIS 48 million in the Bank's share in the operating income of affiliated companies, net of tax effect. This decrease was caused by a provision for impairment of the Bank's investment in the shares of the First International Bank in a net amount of NIS 73 million.

With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly. What do you do if you have to build a solution from the ground up that is expected to live in the field for at least 5-10 years? This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. And Big Data is driving this bus.

This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher....
I wanted to gather all of my Internet of Things (IOT) blogs into a single blog (that I could later use with my University of San Francisco (USF) Big Data “MBA” course). However as I started to pull these blogs together, I realized that my IOT discussion lacked a vision; it lacked an end point towards which an organization could drive their IOT envisioning, proof of value, app dev, data engineering and data science efforts. And I think that the IOT end point is really quite simple…
Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...
Identity is in everything and customers are looking to their providers to ensure the security of their identities, transactions and data. With the increased reliance on cloud-based services, service providers must build security and trust into their offerings, adding value to customers and improving the user experience. Making identity, security and privacy easy for customers provides a unique advantage over the competition.
Is the ongoing quest for agility in the data center forcing you to evaluate how to be a part of infrastructure automation efforts? As organizations evolve toward bimodal IT operations, they are embracing new service delivery models and leveraging virtualization to increase infrastructure agility. Therefore, the network must evolve in parallel to become equally agile. Read this essential piece of Gartner research for recommendations on achieving greater agility.
