Mr. Schroering continued, "We had several non-cash items which negatively impacted results by approximately $500,000 in the three months ended September 30, 2012.   These items relate to an intangible asset impairment charge in our Agricultural division as we lost a major customer in early 2012 and the acceleration of stock based compensation upon a change in control announced in September 2012.  While we continue to deliver revenue growth, the execution in achieving that growth needs to improve.  We need to integrate prior year acquisitions fully into General Employment's operations.  We expect to realize some consolidation benefits and start leveraging our respective client bases by cross selling complimentary service offerings.  I'm excited about my appointment to the board of directors and look forward to working with the entire organization in taking the business to the next level."

"For our quarter ended December 31, 2012, we saw continued strong revenue growth with the better management of expenses.  We anticipate reporting 25% growth in revenue while posting a modest operating profit in the quarter."

"We have spoken with Wells Fargo and secured a one year extension on our credit facility," added Mr. Schroering.  "We continue to work diligently on the year end audit and will file our Annual Report on Form 10-K as soon as practical."

The cloud market growth today is largely in public clouds. While there is a lot of spend in IT departments in virtualization, these aren’t yet translating into a true “cloud” experience within the enterprise. What is stopping the growth of the “private cloud” market?

What are the key differences between wh...
It’s 2016: buildings are smart, connected and the IoT is fundamentally altering how control and operating systems work and speak to each other. Platforms across the enterprise are networked via inexpensive sensors to collect massive amounts of data for analytics, information management, and insights that can be used to continuously improve operations. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Brian Chemel, Co-Founder and CTO of Digital Lumens, will explore: The benefits sensor-networked systems bring to ...
Large scale deployments present unique planning challenges, system commissioning hurdles between IT and OT and demand careful system hand-off orchestration. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jeff Smith, Senior Director and a founding member of Incenergy, will discuss some of the key tactics to ensure delivery success based on his experience of the last two years deploying Industrial IoT systems across four continents.
Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations. Indeed, it is somewhat safe to assume that in IT any transformative effort is likely to also have a modernizing effect, and thus, we can see these as levels of improvement efforts. However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
