First quarter 2014 revenue was $395 million, an increase of 54%, or $138 million, compared to $256 million for the comparable period in 2013. The increase is mainly attributable to growth from acquisitions, however, the Company did experience organic growth of 7%.

Adjusted EBITA for the first quarter 2014 was $63 million, a 56% increase compared to the prior year's first quarter Adjusted EBITA of $40 million. First quarter 2014 Adjusted EBITA per share on a diluted basis increased 56% to $2.96, compared to $1.91 for the same period last year. Adjusted EBITA margin was 16% for both the quarters ended March 31, 2014 and March 31, 2013. A general improvement in EBITA margins across business units (18%) was offset by low EBITA margins realized by Total Specific Solutions (TSS) B.V. ("TSS") (5%). The TSS EBITA margins included severance of approximately $3 million relating to a restructuring program in place at the time of the acquisition.

Adjusted Net Income for the first quarter 2014 was $53 million, compared to the prior year's first quarter Adjusted Net Income of $33 million, a 60% increase.

Non-IFRS Measures

The term "Adjusted EBITA" refers to net income before adjusting for finance and other income, finance costs, income taxes, share in net income or loss of equity investees, impairment of non-financial assets, amortization, and foreign exchange gain or loss. The Company believes that Adjusted EBITA is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's main business activities prior to taking into consideration how those activities are financed and taxed and also prior to taking into consideration intangible asset amortization and the other items listed above. "Adjusted EBITA margin" refers to the percentage that Adjusted EBITA for any period represents as a portion of total revenue for that period. Previously the Company has reported "Adjusted EBITDA" in certain financial disclosures. Adjusted EBITDA refers to Adjusted EBITA as defined above then further excludes depreciation. The Company uses depreciation as a proxy for the cash flows used to purchase property and equipment required to support the Company's main business activities. As such, the Company believes Adjusted EBITA is a more useful measure then Adjusted EBITDA.

"Adjusted net income" means net income adjusted for non-cash expenses (income) such as amortization of intangible assets, deferred income taxes, and certain other expenses (income). The Company believes that Adjusted net income is useful supplemental information as it provides an indication of the results generated by the Company's main business activities prior to taking into consideration amortization of intangible assets, deferred income taxes, and certain other non-cash expenses (income) incurred or recognized by the Company from time to time. "Adjusted net income margin" refers to the percentage that Adjusted net income for any period represents as a portion of total revenue for that period.

Adjusted EBITA and Adjusted net income are not recognized measures under IFRS and, accordingly, readers are cautioned that Adjusted EBITA and Adjusted net income should not be construed as alternatives to net income determined in accordance with IFRS. The Company's method of calculating Adjusted EBITA and Adjusted net income may differ from other issuers and, accordingly, Adjusted EBITA and Adjusted net income may not be comparable to similar measures presented by other issuers.

The following table reconciles Adjusted EBITA to net income:

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...

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. There is no question that businesses successful in adopting a DevOps mindset have seen departmental culture change, ...
