NACCO and Subsidiaries Consolidated Second Quarter Highlights

Key perspectives on NACCO's second quarter results are as follows:

  • North American Coal reported a second quarter 2014 net loss of $0.1 million compared with net income of $9.0 million in the second quarter of 2013 primarily as a result of a significant decline in the operating results at the consolidated mining operations, particularly from Reed Minerals, reduced royalty and other income, an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses and a pre-tax charge of $1.7 million for a reserve against a receivable from North American Coal's customer in India, partially offset by improved earnings from the unconsolidated mines and a tax benefit in the current quarter compared with tax expense in the second quarter of 2013.
  • Hamilton Beach's net income decreased to $1.4 million in the second quarter of 2014 from $2.0 million in the second quarter of 2013. Included in both the 2014 and 2013 net income are pre-tax environmental charges of $2.7 million and $2.3 million, respectively, primarily related to an estimate for an environmental liability at Hamilton Beach's Picton, Ontario facility. Excluding the effect of the environmental charges, operating results decreased primarily due to an increase in selling, general and administrative expenses, partially offset by a shift in sales mix to higher-margin products.
  • Kitchen Collection's second quarter 2014 net loss increased to $2.7 million from a net loss of $2.4 million in the second quarter of 2013 primarily as a result of a lower effective income tax rate that generated a smaller benefit from Kitchen Collection's loss from operations. Kitchen Collection's pre-tax operating results improved primarily due to improved operating margins at both Kitchen Collection® and Le Gourmet Chef® stores mainly due to the closure of unprofitable stores, a shift in mix to higher-margin products, a reduction in comparable store expenses and a decrease in corporate expense, primarily due to lower employee-related costs. Seasonal losses at newly opened stores partially offset these improvements.
  • NACCO and Other, which includes parent company operations, reported a net loss of $1.7 million in the second quarter of 2014 compared with a net loss of $1.0 million in the second quarter of 2013.  The increase in the net loss was primarily due to an increase in employee-related expenses in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013.

Detailed Discussion of Results

North American Coal - Second Quarter Results

North American Coal reported a net loss of $0.1 million and revenues of $49.8 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared with net income of $9.0 million and revenues of $43.6 million for the second quarter of 2013.

Despite an improvement in revenues from increased tons and yards sold, North American Coal's results decreased substantially in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013.  The decrease in results was primarily due to a significant decline in the operating results at the consolidated mining operations, reduced royalty and other income, a charge of $1.7 million, or $1.0 million net of tax of $0.7 million, for a reserve against a receivable from North American Coal's customer in India and higher selling, general and administrative expenses mainly attributable to higher employee-related expenses and professional service fees.  North American Coal established the $1.7 million reserve as a result of its Indian customer disputing, and ultimately defaulting on, its contractual payment obligations.  As a result of this default, North American Coal's Indian subsidiary has terminated its contract with the Indian customer, and intends to pursue contractual remedies.  The decline in results was partially offset by improved earnings from the unconsolidated mines attributable to an increase in deliveries, a discrete tax benefit that was recorded upon the closing of prior years' IRS examinations and a higher tax benefit from percentage depletion.

The substantial decline in results at the consolidated mining operations was largely due to a significantly larger loss at Reed Minerals than in the second quarter of 2013.  Lower selling prices resulting from unfavorable market conditions contributed to a decrease in revenues.  Also, operating and productivity improvements at Reed Minerals were implemented later than anticipated in the second quarter of 2014 primarily because of a delay in the startup of a new dragline.  As a result of the delay, Reed Minerals experienced production shortfalls which caused a decrease in inventory levels and reduced tons sold.  In addition, Reed Minerals' results were unfavorably affected by an increase in depreciation expense on equipment acquired during 2013 and 2014 to improve efficiencies and productivity and higher repair and maintenance expense.  Also contributing to the substantial decline in the 2014 second quarter results was a charge of $1.0 million pre-tax to reimburse a customer for damage to certain customer-owned equipment at the limerock dragline mining operations which offset the favorable effect of higher limerock deliveries.  The lower operating results were slightly offset by marginally improved results at Mississippi Lignite Mining Company as significantly fewer outage days at the customer's power plant in the second quarter of 2014 resulted in higher revenues from increased deliveries, which were almost fully offset by higher operating expenses and fewer costs being capitalized into inventory in the second quarter of 2014 compared with 2013.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, North American Coal reported net income of $5.6 million and revenues of $89.7 million compared with net income of $18.5 million and revenues of $94.7 million for the first six months of 2013. 

North American Coal - Outlook

North American Coal expects improved operating performance overall at its coal mining operations in the second half of 2014 compared with the second half of 2013.  Performance at the consolidated coal mining operations is expected to improve, specifically at Reed Minerals.  North American Coal installed key management from legacy operations in the Reed Minerals operations during the second quarter.  These personnel changes are expected to help Reed Minerals achieve its planned operating and productivity improvements during the second half of 2014.  As part of its overall Reed Minerals improvement program, a higher-cost Reed Minerals mining area was temporarily idled at the beginning of the second quarter and will be idled at least through the end of 2014 while it files for a revised mining permit and assesses the selling prices for the coal produced from this mine area against anticipated production costs.  The improved performance at Reed Minerals is expected to be somewhat offset by reduced results at Mississippi Lignite Mining Company due to fewer deliveries in the second half of 2014 compared with the same period in 2013 because of a significant planned outage at the customer's power plant in the fourth quarter of 2014.  Deliveries at Mississippi Lignite Mining Company are expected to increase over the longer term as a result of continued operational improvements at the customer's power plant.  North American Coal also has project opportunities for which it expects to continue to incur additional expenses in the second half of 2014.  In particular, the company continues to move forward to obtain a permit for its Otter Creek reserve in North Dakota in preparation for construction of a new mine.

At the unconsolidated mining operations, steam coal tons delivered in the last half of 2014 are expected to decline slightly from the same period in 2013 based on the customers' currently planned power plant operating levels for the remainder of 2014.  Demery Resources Company's Five Forks Mine commenced delivering coal to its customer in 2012 and full production levels are expected to be reached in late 2015.  Liberty Fuels commenced production in 2013 for Mississippi Power Company's new Kemper County Energy Facility.  Production levels at Liberty Fuels are expected to increase gradually to approximately 0.5 million tons in 2014 up to full production of approximately 4.7 million tons of coal annually in 2019.

Unconsolidated mines currently in development are expected to continue to generate modest income during the second half of 2014.  The three mines in development are not expected to be at full production for several years.  Mining permits needed to commence mining operations were issued in 2013 for the Caddo Creek Resources Company and the Camino Real Fuels projects in Texas.  Caddo Creek expects to begin making initial coal deliveries in late 2014.  Camino Real Fuels expects initial deliveries in the second half of 2015, and expects to mine approximately 3.6 million tons of coal annually when at full production.  Coyote Creek Mining Company is developing a mine in Mercer County, North Dakota, from which it expects to deliver approximately 2.5 million tons of coal annually beginning in May 2016.

Limerock deliveries in the second half of 2014 are expected to be lower than the second half of 2013 as a result of reduced customer requirements.  Declines in royalty and other income are also expected in the second half of 2014 from the high levels realized in the second half of 2013.

Overall, North American Coal expects net income in the second half of 2014 to increase compared with the second half of 2013.  Productivity improvements and increased mining efficiencies are expected to result in breakeven results at Reed Minerals in the second half of 2014 compared with a significant loss in the second half of 2013 but are not expected to offset the substantial operating losses that Reed Minerals incurred in the first half of the year.  Improvements at Reed Minerals in the second half of 2014 are expected to be partially offset by significantly reduced deliveries at Mississippi Lignite Mining Company due to a planned outage at the customer's power plant and lower royalty and other income than in the second half of 2013.  Cash flow before financing activities in 2014 is expected to be positive as compared with negative cash flow before financing activities in 2013.

Over the longer term, North American Coal's goal is to increase earnings of its unconsolidated mines by approximately 50% by 2017 from 2012 levels through the development and maturation of its new mines and normal escalation of contractual compensation at its existing mines.  Also, North American Coal has a goal of at least doubling the earnings contribution from its consolidated mining operations by 2017 from 2012 levels due to benefits from anticipated continued operational improvements at Mississippi Lignite Mining Company's customer's power plant and from the company's execution of its long-term plan at the Reed Minerals operations.  The company views its acquisition of Reed Minerals as a metallurgical coal strategic initiative which includes significantly increased volume and profitability for the company over the long term.

North American Coal also expects to continue its efforts to develop new mining projects. The company is actively pursuing domestic opportunities for new or expanded coal mining projects, which include various clean coal technologies.  North American Coal also continues to pursue additional non-coal mining opportunities, principally in aggregates, and international value-added mining services projects.

Hamilton Beach - Second Quarter Results

Hamilton Beach reported net income of $1.4 million and revenues of $118.4 million for the second quarter of 2014, compared with net income of $2.0 million and revenues of $114.7 million for the second quarter of 2013.   

Revenues increased moderately in the second quarter of 2014 compared with the second quarter of 2013 primarily due to an increase in sales of products with higher price points, mainly in the commercial market and in the U.S and Canadian consumer markets. The improvement in revenue was partially offset by lower unit sales volumes, primarily in the U.S. consumer market, and unfavorable foreign currency movements as both the Canadian dollar and Mexican peso weakened against the U.S. dollar.

Net income in the second quarter of 2014 decreased compared with the second quarter of 2013.  Included in both the 2014 and 2013 net income are environmental charges of $2.7 million, or $1.8 million net of tax of $0.9 million, and $2.3 million, or $1.5 million net of tax of $0.8 million, respectively, primarily related to an estimate for an environmental liability at Hamilton Beach's Picton, Ontario facility. Excluding the effect of the environmental charges, operating results decreased $1.4 million primarily due to an increase in outside service fees and advertising expenses and additional costs incurred to execute Hamilton Beach's five strategic initiatives, as well as the absence of a favorable product liability adjustment of $0.9 million pretax recorded in 2013.  The decline was partially offset by a shift in sales mix to higher-margin products.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, Hamilton Beach reported net income of $1.7 million and revenues of $219.7 million compared with net income of $3.5 million and revenues of $220.8 million for the first six months of 2013. 

Hamilton Beach - Outlook

Following a difficult start to the year, the overall consumer retail market continued to struggle with consumer traffic at both the high-end and middle markets not returning to expected levels in the second quarter of 2014.  These market conditions are creating continued uncertainty about the strength of the retail market and expectations regarding consumer activity in the second half of 2014, particularly with Hamilton Beach's target consumer, the middle-market mass consumer, who continues to struggle with financial and economic concerns.  As a result, sales volumes in the middle-market portion of the U.S. small kitchen appliance market in which Hamilton Beach participates are projected to grow only moderately in the second half of 2014, provided consumer traffic improves.  The Canadian retail market is expected to follow U.S. trends, while other International and commercial product markets in which Hamilton Beach participates are anticipated to grow moderately in the second half of 2014 compared with the same period in 2013.

Hamilton Beach expects sales volumes to grow more favorably than the market due to improved placements of products with higher price points over the remainder of 2014 compared with the second half of 2013.  Hamilton Beach continues to focus on strengthening its North American consumer market position through product innovation, promotions, increased placements and branding programs, together with appropriate levels of advertising for the company's highly successful and innovative product lines.  Hamilton Beach expects the FlexBrewTM coffee maker, launched in late 2012, and the Hamilton Beach® Breakfast Sandwich Maker, launched in early 2013, to continue to gain market position. The company is continuing to introduce innovative products and upgrades to certain products in several small appliance categories.  These products, as well as other new product introductions in the pipeline for 2014, are expected to affect both revenues and operating profit positively.  As a result of these new products and execution of the company's strategic initiatives, both domestically and internationally, Hamilton Beach expects an increase in revenues in the second half of 2014 compared with the second half of 2013 and expects to outperform the overall market's 2014 forecasted rate of increase.

Overall, Hamilton Beach expects net income in the second half of 2014 to be comparable to or moderately lower than the second half of 2013.  The anticipated increase in sales volumes attributable to the continued implementation and execution of Hamilton Beach's strategic initiatives is expected to be substantially offset by the costs of implementing those initiatives and by increased advertising and promotional costs and outside services fees.  Product and transportation costs are expected to increase modestly in the second half of 2014 compared with the second half of 2013, and the negative effects of foreign currency fluctuations are expected to continue throughout the remainder of 2014.  Hamilton Beach continues to monitor both currency effects and commodity costs closely and intends to adjust product prices and product placements appropriately in response to such cost increases.  Hamilton Beach expects cash flow before financing activities in 2014 to be substantial but down significantly from 2013.

Longer term, Hamilton Beach will work to take advantage of the potential to improve return on sales through economies of scale derived from market growth and a focus on its five strategic volume growth initiatives: (1) enhancing its placements in the North America consumer business through consumer-driven innovative products and strong sales and marketing support, (2) enhancing internet sales by providing best-in-class retailer support and increased consumer content and engagement, (3) participating in the "only-the-best" market with a strong brand and broad product line, including investing in new products to be sold under the Jamba and Wolf Gourmet brand names, (4) expanding internationally in the emerging Asian and Latin American markets by increasing product offerings and expanding its distribution channels and sales and marketing capabilities and (5) achieving global Commercial market leadership through a commitment to an enhanced global product line for chains and distributors serving the global food service and hospitality markets.  During 2013 and the first half of 2014, Hamilton Beach continued to make strides in the execution of its strategic initiatives and expects to continue to do so over the remainder of 2014.

Kitchen Collection - Second Quarter Results

Kitchen Collection reported a net loss of $2.7 million and revenues of $32.8 million for the second quarter of 2014 compared with a net loss of $2.4 million and revenues of $38.4 million for the second quarter of 2013. 

The decline in Kitchen Collection's revenues was primarily the result of the loss of sales from the closure of unprofitable Le Gourmet Chef® and Kitchen Collection® stores since June 30, 2013 and a decrease in comparable store sales at both the Kitchen Collection® and Le Gourmet Chef® stores.  The decline in comparable store sales was predominantly due to a decrease in customer visits and store transactions, as well as a decrease in the average sales transaction value caused by shifts to lower-priced but higher-margin products.  The decline in revenue was partially offset by sales at newly opened Kitchen Collection® stores.

At June 30, 2014, the company operated 240 Kitchen Collection® stores compared with 254 stores at June 30, 2013 and 14 Le Gourmet Chef® stores at June 30, 2014 compared with 41 stores at June 30, 2013.  At year-end 2013, Kitchen Collection® and Le Gourmet Chef® operated 272 and 32 stores, respectively.

Kitchen Collection's operating loss decreased to $4.3 million in 2014 from $5.4 million in 2013. However, the 2014 second quarter net loss increased compared with the second quarter of 2013 as a result of a lower effective income tax rate that generated a smaller income tax benefit on Kitchen Collection's loss from operations, The reduced operating loss was primarily the result of the closure of unprofitable stores, improved operating margins at both Kitchen Collection® and Le Gourmet Chef® comparable stores due to a shift in mix to higher-margin products and a reduction in comparable store expenses, and a decrease in corporate expense, primarily due to lower employee-related costs. Seasonal losses at newly opened stores partially offset these improvements.

For the six months ended June 30, 2014, Kitchen Collection reported a net loss of $6.7 million and revenues of $69.7 million compared with a net loss of $5.7 million and revenues of $78.1 million for the first six months of 2013. 

Kitchen Collection - Outlook

Consumer traffic to all mall locations, and particularly outlet malls, continued to decline in the second quarter of 2014 and prospects for the remainder of 2014 are uncertain.  The trend of fewer households being established appears to be continuing and the middle-market consumer remains under pressure as a result of financial and economic concerns.  These concerns are expected to continue to dampen consumer sentiment and limit consumer spending levels for Kitchen Collection's target customer over the remainder of 2014.  Kitchen Collection expects to continue to refine its business plan on the assumption of continued market softness.  In this context, Kitchen Collection closed 56 stores in the first half of 2014  as part of a program to close underperforming stores and realign the business around core stores which perform with acceptable profitability.  Kitchen Collection plans to maintain a lower number of stores in the remainder of 2014 and, as a result, expects revenues in the second half of 2014 to decrease substantially compared with the second half of 2013.

Overall, Kitchen Collection expects substantial net income for the second half of 2014 compared with a net loss in the second half of 2013, primarily in the fourth quarter.  The net effect of closing stores early in 2014 and the anticipated opening of a small number of new stores during the second half of 2014 is expected to contribute to improved operating results, which began in the second quarter and are expected to improve gradually over the second half of 2014.  As part of Kitchen Collection's program to realign its business, the company has taken additional steps to reduce expenses through a number of cost reduction programs implemented during the first half of 2014 at its headquarters, distribution center and remaining core stores and by terminating its medical benefit plan in late February 2014.  This program is expected to generate significant operating expense savings during the second half of 2014.  In addition, during the first quarter of 2014, Kitchen Collection executed revisions to its store layouts designed to focus customers on higher-margin products.  These changes appear to be well received as margins improved late in the first quarter of 2014, continued to improve in the second quarter and are expected to continue to improve during the remainder of 2014.  These improvements, while positive for the second half of 2014, are not expected to offset the losses from the first half of the year.  As a result, Kitchen Collection expects a loss for the 2014 full year.  Kitchen Collection expects to generate positive cash flow before financing activities in 2014 compared with negative cash flow before financing activities in 2013.

Longer term, Kitchen Collection plans to focus on comparable store sales growth around a solid core store portfolio.  Kitchen Collection expects to accomplish this by enhancing sales volume and profitability through continued refinement of its formats and ongoing review of specific product offerings, merchandise mix, store displays and appearance, while improving inventory efficiency and store inventory controls.  Increasing sales of higher-margin products will continue to be a key focus.  The company will also continue to evaluate and, as lease contracts permit, close or restructure leases for underperforming and loss-generating stores.  In the near term, Kitchen Collection expects to add stores cautiously and focus its growth on its core Kitchen Collection® stores, with new stores expected to be located in sound positions in strong outlet malls.

Cultural, regulatory, environmental, political and economic (CREPE) conditions over the past decade are creating cross-industry solution spaces that require processes and technologies from both the Internet of Things (IoT), and Data Management and Analytics (DMA). These solution spaces are evolving into Sensor Analytics Ecosystems (SAE) that represent significant new opportunities for organizations of all types. Public Utilities throughout the world, providing electricity, natural gas and water, are pursuing SmartGrid initiatives that represent one of the more mature examples of SAE. We have spoken with, or attended presentations from, utilities in the United States, South America, Asia and Europe. This session will provide a look at the CREPE drivers for SmartGrids and the solution spaces used by SmartGrids today and planned for the near future. All organizations can learn from SmartGrid’s use of Predictive Maintenance, Demand Prediction, Cloud, Big Data and Customer-facing Dashboards...
The Internet of Things (IoT) is going to require a new way of thinking and of developing software for speed, security and innovation. This requires IT leaders to balance business as usual while anticipating for the next market and technology trends. Cloud provides the right IT asset portfolio to help today’s IT leaders manage the old and prepare for the new. Today the cloud conversation is evolving from private and public to hybrid. This session will provide use cases and insights to reinforce the value of the network in helping organizations to maximize their company’s cloud experience.
IoT is still a vague buzzword for many people. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Mike Kavis, Vice President & Principal Cloud Architect at Cloud Technology Partners, will discuss the business value of IoT that goes far beyond the general public's perception that IoT is all about wearables and home consumer services. The presentation will also discuss how IoT is perceived by investors and how venture capitalist access this space. Other topics to discuss are barriers to success, what is new, what is old, and what the future may hold.
Whether you're a startup or a 100 year old enterprise, the Internet of Things offers a variety of new capabilities for your business. IoT style solutions can help you get closer your customers, launch new product lines and take over an industry. Some companies are dipping their toes in, but many have already taken the plunge, all while dramatic new capabilities continue to emerge. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Reid Carlberg, Senior Director, Developer Evangelism at salesforce.com, to discuss real-world use cases, patterns and opportunities you can harness today.
All major researchers estimate there will be tens of billions devices – computers, smartphones, tablets, and sensors – connected to the Internet by 2020. This number will continue to grow at a rapid pace for the next several decades. With major technology companies and startups seriously embracing IoT strategies, now is the perfect time to attend @ThingsExpo in Silicon Valley. Learn what is going on, contribute to the discussions, and ensure that your enterprise is as "IoT-Ready" as it can be!

There will be 50 billion Internet connected devices by 2020. Today, every manufacturer has a propriety protocol and an app. How do we securely integrate these "things" into our lives and businesses in a way that we can easily control and manage? Even better, how do we integrate these "things" so that they control and manage each other so our lives become more convenient or our businesses become more profitable and/or safe? We have heard that the best interface is no interface. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Chris Matthieu, Co-Founder & CTO at Octoblu, Inc., will discuss how these devices generate enough data to learn our behaviors and simplify/improve our lives. What if we could connect everything to everything? I'm not only talking about connecting things to things but also systems, cloud services, and people. Add in a little machine learning and artificial intelligence and now we have something interesting...
Last week, while in San Francisco, I used the Uber app and service four times. All four experiences were great, although one of the drivers stopped for 30 seconds and then left as I was walking up to the car. He must have realized I was a blogger. None the less, the next car was just a minute away and I suffered no pain. In this article, my colleague, Ved Sen, Global Head, Advisory Services Social, Mobile and Sensors at Cognizant shares his experiences and insights.
We are reaching the end of the beginning with WebRTC and real systems using this technology have begun to appear. One challenge that faces every WebRTC deployment (in some form or another) is identity management. For example, if you have an existing service – possibly built on a variety of different PaaS/SaaS offerings – and you want to add real-time communications you are faced with a challenge relating to user management, authentication, authorization, and validation. Service providers will want to use their existing identities, but these will have credentials already that are (hopefully) irreversibly encoded. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Peter Dunkley, Technical Director at Acision, will look at how this identity problem can be solved and discuss ways to use existing web identities for real-time communication.
Can call centers hang up the phones for good? Intuitive Solutions did. WebRTC enabled this contact center provider to eliminate antiquated telephony and desktop phone infrastructure with a pure web-based solution, allowing them to expand beyond brick-and-mortar confines to a home-based agent model. It also ensured scalability and better service for customers, including MUY! Companies, one of the country's largest franchise restaurant companies with 232 Pizza Hut locations. This is one example of WebRTC adoption today, but the potential is limitless when powered by IoT. Attendees will learn real-world benefits of WebRTC and explore future possibilities, as WebRTC and IoT intersect to improve customer service.
From telemedicine to smart cars, digital homes and industrial monitoring, the explosive growth of IoT has created exciting new business opportunities for real time calls and messaging. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Ivelin Ivanov, CEO and Co-Founder of Telestax, will share some of the new revenue sources that IoT created for Restcomm – the open source telephony platform from Telestax. Ivelin Ivanov is a technology entrepreneur who founded Mobicents, an Open Source VoIP Platform, to help create, deploy, and manage applications integrating voice, video and data. He is the co-founder of TeleStax, an Open Source Cloud Communications company that helps the shift from legacy IN/SS7 telco networks to IP-based cloud comms. An early investor in multiple start-ups, he still finds time to code for his companies and contribute to open source projects.
The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to create new business models as significant as those that were inspired by the Internet and the smartphone 20 and 10 years ago. What business, social and practical implications will this phenomenon bring? That's the subject of "Monetizing the Internet of Things: Perspectives from the Front Lines," an e-book released today and available free of charge from Aria Systems, the leading innovator in recurring revenue management.
The Internet of Things will put IT to its ultimate test by creating infinite new opportunities to digitize products and services, generate and analyze new data to improve customer satisfaction, and discover new ways to gain a competitive advantage across nearly every industry. In order to help corporate business units to capitalize on the rapidly evolving IoT opportunities, IT must stand up to a new set of challenges.
There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. In her session at 6th Big Data Expo®, Hannah Smalltree, Director at Treasure Data, to discuss how IoT, Big Data and deployments are processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and other machines.
P2P RTC will impact the landscape of communications, shifting from traditional telephony style communications models to OTT (Over-The-Top) cloud assisted & PaaS (Platform as a Service) communication services. The P2P shift will impact many areas of our lives, from mobile communication, human interactive web services, RTC and telephony infrastructure, user federation, security and privacy implications, business costs, and scalability. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Erik Lagerway, Co-founder of Hookflash, will walk through the shifting landscape of traditional telephone and voice services to the modern P2P RTC era of OTT cloud assisted services.
While great strides have been made relative to the video aspects of remote collaboration, audio technology has basically stagnated. Typically all audio is mixed to a single monaural stream and emanates from a single point, such as a speakerphone or a speaker associated with a video monitor. This leads to confusion and lack of understanding among participants especially regarding who is actually speaking. Spatial teleconferencing introduces the concept of acoustic spatial separation between conference participants in three dimensional space. This has been shown to significantly improve comprehension and conference efficiency.
The Internet of Things is tied together with a thin strand that is known as time. Coincidentally, at the core of nearly all data analytics is a timestamp. When working with time series data there are a few core principles that everyone should consider, especially across datasets where time is the common boundary. In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, will discuss single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series data. By focusing on enterprise applications and the data center, he will use OpenTSDB as an example to explain some of these concepts including when to use different storage models.

The Transparent Cloud-computing Consortium (abbreviation: T-Cloud Consortium) will conduct research activities into changes in the computing model as a result of collaboration between "device" and "cloud" and the creation of new value and markets through organic data processing High speed and high quality networks, and dramatic improvements in computer processing capabilities, have greatly changed the nature of applications and made the storing and processing of data on the network commonplace. These technological reforms have not only changed computers and smartphones, but are also changing the data processing model for all information devices. In particular, in the area known as M2M (Machine-To-Machine), there are great expectations that information with a new type of value can be produced using a variety of devices and sensors saving/sharing data via the network and through large-scale cloud-type data processing. This consortium believes that attaching a huge number of devic...
