-- Strong loan growth in commercial banking with YoY increases of 20.8% in consumer loans, 30.3% in credit cards, 76.7% in SMEs and 11.9% in mortgages

MEXICO CITY, Feb. 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Grupo Financiero Santander Mexico, S.A.B. de C.V., (NYSE: BSMX; BMV: SANMEX), ("Santander Mexico"), one of the leading financial groups in the Mexican financial system, today announced financial results for the three- and twelve-month periods ending December 31, 2012.

Comparable net income for 4Q12 was Ps.3,938 million, representing a 16.0% YoY increase. Including a non-recurring gain of Ps.4,348 million in 4Q11 from the sale of the insurance business to Zurich Financial Services Group ("Zurich"), as well as, incremental administrative and promotional expenses, an accounts receivable write-off and higher provisions in 4Q12, reported net income for the quarter was Ps.3,310 million, representing a decrease of 57.2% YoY and 21.5% on a sequential basis.

Comparable net income for FY12 increased by 31.4%, or Ps.4,124 million, to Ps.17,238 million. Including an extraordinary gain of Ps.4,822 million from the sale of the insurance business and income from this business in FY11, a Ps.1,067 million extraordinary gain in 3Q11 from the reversal of provisions to comply with CNBV (Comision Nacional Bancaria y de Valores) regulations, and a Ps.1,731 million gain from the sale and leaseback of 220 branches in 2Q12, as well as, higher costs and provisions in 4Q12 as discussed above, reported net income for FY12 was Ps.17,822 million, a 4.6% decrease, from FY11

Marcos Martinez, Executive Chairman and CEO, commented, "We reported a solid operating performance this quarter, balancing robust growth with strong asset quality and operational efficiency. Net interest income expanded 13% year-on-year and net commissions and fees grew 34%. Continued growth in retail loans underscores the merits of our strategic focus. Performance in key business segments was strong in 2012, with year-on-year increases of 21% in consumer loans, 30% in credit cards, and 77% in loans to small and medium enterprises ("SMEs"). We achieved growth while maintaining a strong focus on prudent risk management - reflected in controlled NPL ratios and a stable cost of risk.  This, together with our efficiency-oriented culture, positions Santander Mexico as one of the most profitable franchises in the country."

Mr. Martinez continued, "We expect Santander Mexico's momentum to continue in 2013 and beyond, supported by our sharp strategic focus, our favorable view of Mexico's political and economic landscape, and our expectations for attractive yet sensible Mexican financial system growth."

As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions.

Most people haven’t heard the word, “gamification,” even though they probably, and perhaps unwittingly, participate in it every day. Gamification is “the process of adding games or game-like elements to something (as a task) so as to encourage participation.” Further, gamification is about bringing game mechanics – rules, constructs, processes, and methods – into the real world in an effort to engage people.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.

For manufacturers, the Internet of Things (IoT) represents a jumping-off point for innovation, jobs, and revenue creation. But to adequately seize the opportunity, manufacturers must design devices that are interconnected, can continually sense their environment and process huge amounts of data. As a first step, manufacturers must embrace a new product development ecosystem in order to support these products.
Manufacturing connected IoT versions of traditional products requires more than multiple deep technology skills. It also requires a shift in mindset, to realize that connected, sensor-enabled “things” act more like services than what we usually think of as products.

When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings.

There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Buildi...
