Co-CEOs George Rossolatos and Emmanuel Mounouchos announced Avante Logixx Inc.'s results for the year ended March 31, 2014. The Company achieved significant growth in revenues, gross profit and net income. While revenues grew by 32.5% for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2014 as compared to the prior year, gross profit grew by 52.8%. Revenue growth was attributable to increased sales of rapid alarm response and intelligent perimeter protection video analytics services as well as a significant contribution from international security travel advisory services during the year. The growth in gross profit was on account of higher revenues and favourable labour cost variances.
Net income for the year was $2,779,453 as compared to $370,818 for fiscal year 2013, an increase of $2,408,635. This increase included net deferred tax recovery of $1,386,990 with the balance attributable to profit from operations for the year. Adjusted EBITDA for the year was $1,483,864 (FY 2013: $452,344) reflecting a strong and steady performance throughout the year. The Company will focus on growing all of its revenue streams in the coming year, while targeting strategic acquisitions that will enhance the company's offerings.
The Company's customer base increased by more than 10% with respect to number of Response and Monitored clients, as compared to fiscal year 2013. It is also developing new value-add security solutions to residential and corporate customers.
(1) Revenues - Recurring Monitoring and Response includes Alarm Response along with Digital, Wireless and Video Monitoring services
(2) Adjusted EBITDA = Net income (loss) + Income tax + Depreciation / amortization + Share based payments expense
Cash flow from operations for the year was $1,825,367 as compared to $326,996 for the previous fiscal year. Also, the Company's cash flow from investing activities increased primarily due to a $5 million capital raise (before share issue costs) in March 2014 through a private placement co-underwritten by Cormark Securities Inc. and Mackie Research Capital Corporation. Avante plans to make investments in infrastructure, sales and the launch of its first branding campaign in fiscal 2015 to further build organic growth rates over time.
Avante's prospects for fiscal 2015 continue to be positive. The Company continues to strengthen its balance sheet which is free of debt, while pursuing new opportunities to consolidate and further improve its market share, which would result in increased profitability, while delivering maximum value to its shareholders.

DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, it is now feasible to create a rich desktop and tuned mobile experience with a single codebase, without compromising performance or usability.

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It’s easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) – you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of bein...
