Newmont Mining Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 1, 2014, Newmont Mining Corporation (Newmont) announced the closing of its previously announced five-year, amortizing term loan of $575 million which will be used to repay the debt maturing in July 2014. The Company also renewed its $3.0 billion corporate revolving credit facility, extending the maturity date two years to March 31, 2019. Commenting on the development, Laurie Brlas, Executive Vice President and CFO, said, "The term loan allows us to repay the 2014 maturities and provides the flexibility to reduce debt over the coming years. Extending the maturity of our revolving credit facility ultimately enhances our corporate liquidity profile." Both bank facilities are unsecured and include a single financial covenant requiring a net-debt-to-capitalization ratio below 0.63. As of December 31, 2013, the Company's leverage ratio, as defined, was 0.29. The full analyst notes on Newmont Mining Corporation are available to download free of charge at:

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...

When an enterprise builds a hybrid IaaS cloud connecting its data center to one or more public clouds, security is often a major topic along with the other challenges involved. Security is closely intertwined with the networking choices made for the hybrid cloud. Traditional networking approaches for building a hybrid cloud try to kludge together the enterprise infrastructure with the public cloud. Consequently this approach requires risky, deep "surgery" including changes to firewalls, subnets...

There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
