Hubwoo Connecting Companies

Gregory A. Mark, Hubwoo Chairman and CEO commented: "We have made good progress this quarter in kicking off new customer engagements, continuing the global rollout and expansion of our solution footprint at existing customers, and increasing our global sales team organization by attracting and training world-class talent. We are currently living through a planned season of declining SaaS revenue whilst maintaining a close eye on earnings. Our expectations are that we will experience a turnaround on our top line performance in the not too distant future."

(**) SaaS is a model of delivering technology where a software solution is hosted (cloud computing) as a service for its customers.

Clients do not buy the technology but pay a subscription fee to use it.

Q2 2014 total revenue was EUR 6.9 million, stable in comparison to Q1 2014. The recurring SaaS component of revenue was EUR 5.6 million, down from the same quarter of 2013 as a consequence of the end of customer contracts as part of the technology transition that the company has been experiencing over the last seven quarters.

The level of order intake of the first half, however, showed upward trending, and the company envisages to progressively offset these revenue losses in the next coming quarters. This is visible from the positive evolution of Services in Q2 in comparison to Q1 2014.

Advanced indicators show that, in spite of the revenue decline, the company will maintain over the first semester satisfactory levels of profitability, on Gross Margin, EBITDA (***) and EBIT. The full set of accounts for the first semester will be issued on August 28th 2014.

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. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Smart cities have the potential to change our lives at so many levels for citizens: less pollution, reduced parking obstacles, better health, education and more energy savings.

We are given a desktop platform with Java 8 or Java 9 installed and seek to find a way to deploy high-performance Java applications that use Java 3D and/or Jogl without having to run an installer.

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.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
