The condensed consolidated statements of operations and comprehensive income for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 (unaudited) and the condensed consolidated balance sheet as of June 30, 2012 (unaudited) are derived from, and should be read in conjunction with, the Company's unaudited condensed consolidated financial statements for the three and six months ended June 30, 2012 and 2011, which was filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission on December 21, 2012 under cover of Form 6-K.

We are positive about the prospects for the coal mining industry in the PRC and we will continue to pursue growth through acquisition and consolidation of small to medium sized coal mines in Guizhou province."

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.
