Parta Dialogue Announces a 72% Increase of its Revenues for its Last Quarter Ended November 30, 2012 to Reach Over $1M Revenues for its Last Quarter

MONTREAL, QUEBEC and TORONTO, ONTARIO and MEXICO CITY, MEXICO and PARIS, FRANCE -- (Marketwire) -- 01/30/13 -- Parta Dialogue (TSX VENTURE:PAD) an up and coming leader in social media optimization, analytics and Social Learning for organizations at the forefront of digital strategy, released results for its most recent Quarter Ended November 30, 2012. Revenues have increased by 72% compared to the previous quarter ended August 31, 2012 and by 37% compared to the same six-month period ended November 30, 2011. Not only are revenues growing organically, but the size of the individual contracts, the duration and the reoccurring nature of the business is improving. For the first time, Parta's revenues for a quarter were over a million dollars. Condensed interim unaudited consolidated Financial Statements and Management Report are available on SEDAR's website at www.sedar.com.

In addition to the $465K increase in revenues for the last quarter, Parta has also announced that, in comparison to the same six-month period ended November 30, 2011, its cost of sales have increased by 77% and the cost of marketing and sales have increased by 237% to support the Company's growth plan and the rapid development of Version 2.0 of its eValue(TM) Social Media ROI Suite. Operating expenses also includes $188K expenses related to the acquisition of M Thirty Communications Inc. in September 2012.

"To simplify our results, our top line continues to rapidly expand and we are reinvesting in the business to build for our future and ensure we are the most competitive full service offering in the market. As planned, we continue to ramp up our sales as demonstrated by our organic revenue growth. In recent months, we completed the acquisition of Toronto MTHIRTY on September 15th, and we successfully launched the eValue(TM) v2.0, our leading product to ensure the penetration of international markets. These investments produced an operating loss in the short term despite overall profitability of each contract. The company's balance sheet has improved significantly over the last 12 months and accounting loss is essentially the predictable result of the implementation of our growth strategy" stated Parta's CEO, Paul Allard.

The explosion of connected devices / sensors is creating an ever-expanding set of new and valuable data. In parallel the emerging capability of Big Data technologies to store, access, analyze, and react to this data is producing changes in business models under the umbrella of the Internet of Things (IoT). In particular within the Insurance industry, IoT appears positioned to enable deep changes by altering relationships between insurers, distributors, and the insured. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Michael Sick, a Senior Manager and Big Data Architect within Ernst and Young's Financial Servi...
In the consumer IoT, everything is new, and the IT world of bits and bytes holds sway. But industrial and commercial realms encompass operational technology (OT) that has been around for 25 or 50 years. This grittier, pre-IP, more hands-on world has much to gain from Industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and principles. But adding sensors and wireless connectivity won’t work in environments that demand unwavering reliability and performance. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ron Sege, CEO of Echelon, will discuss how as enterprise IT embraces other IoT-related technology trends, enterprises with i...
Enthusiasm for the Internet of Things has reached an all-time high. In 2013 alone, venture capitalists spent more than $1 billion dollars investing in the IoT space. With "smart" appliances and devices, IoT covers wearable smart devices, cloud services to hardware companies. Nest, a Google company, detects temperatures inside homes and automatically adjusts it by tracking its user's habit. These technologies are quickly developing and with it come challenges such as bridging infrastructure gaps, abiding by privacy concerns and making the concept a reality. These challenges can't be addressed w...

Wearable devices have come of age. The primary applications of wearables so far have been "the Quantified Self" or the tracking of one's fitness and health status. We propose the evolution of wearables into social and emotional communication devices. Our BE(tm) sensor uses light to visualize the skin conductance response. Our sensors are very inexpensive and can be massively distributed to audiences or groups of any size, in order to gauge reactions to performances, video, or any kind of presentation.

The true value of the Internet of Things (IoT) lies not just in the data, but through the services that protect the data, perform the analysis and present findings in a usable way. With many IoT elements rooted in traditional IT components, Big Data and IoT isn’t just a play for enterprise. In fact, the IoT presents SMBs with the prospect of launching entirely new activities and exploring innovative areas. CompTIA research identifies several areas where IoT is expected to have the greatest impact.

Every day we read jaw-dropping stats on the explosion of data. We allocate significant resources to harness and better understand it. We build businesses around it. But we’ve only just begun. For big payoffs in Big Data, CIOs are turning to cognitive computing. Cognitive computing’s ability to securely extract insights, understand natural language, and get smarter each time it’s used is the next, logical step for Big Data.
There's no doubt that the Internet of Things is driving the next wave of innovation. Google has spent billions over the past few months vacuuming up companies that specialize in smart appliances and machine learning. Already, Philips light bulbs, Audi automobiles, and Samsung washers and dryers can communicate with and be controlled from mobile devices. To take advantage of the opportunities the Internet of Things brings to your business, you'll want to start preparing now.
