ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (ImageWare), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has issued financial results for the first quarter ended March 31, 2014, as well as provided a corporate update to highlight the company's progress since its last update on March 17, 2014.
- Partnered with IBM to provide Imageware's cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management and user authentication platform on the IBM Cloud Platform, BlueMix.
- Signed agreement to provide ImageWare's GoMobile Interactive product via Fujitsu's Global Cloud Platform with Maxie Mobile for their mobile wallet offering, initially targeted towards the gaming industry.
- T-Systems and ImageWare have secured the first customer under the new partnership. The first customer is Deutsche Bahn, the German national rail company. ImageWare expects this implementation to commence and begin producing revenues in the third quarter of 2014.
First Quarter 2014 Financial Results
Total revenues in the first quarter of 2014 increased to $1.1 million from $0.9 million in the first quarter of 2013, primarily due to higher sales of identification software license revenue.
Gross margin in the first quarter of 2014 increased by 410 basis points to 76.4% compared to 72.3% in the first quarter of 2013. The increase was primarily due to the increased software license revenues.
Net loss in the first quarter of 2014 was $1.7 million or ($0.02) per basic share, compared to a net loss of $2.8 million or ($0.04) per basic share in the first quarter of 2013.
At March 31, 2014, cash and cash equivalents totaled $2.2 million compared to $2.4 million at December 31, 2013. The company continues to carry virtually no debt and its $3.5 million line of credit that remains untapped.
"Our strategy to target large IT service providers and provide security for their cloud customers and applications is gaining traction, as demonstrated by our most recent partnership with IBM," said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. "IBM marks our third secured agreement with a major cloud partner, and we expect more to come. These large, established partners offer the support, brand name and worldwide cloud platform needed to seamlessly distribute our products. While IBM's BlueMix is in the early stages, we've already received referrals from their customers -- several of which we are in active discussions.
"At the beginning of April, Fujitsu announced the kick-off and worldwide expansion of our partnership model with a dedicated sales team covering the Americas. Since then, Fujitsu has set up proof of concept pilots with three of their major customers, with more expected in the near future.
"By working closely with our technology partners, we continue to build a healthy active pipeline of potential customers. One includes a new partnership with Maxie Mobile, where we will provide our GoMobile Interactive product via Fujitsu's Global Cloud Platform for Maxie's mobile wallet offering, which is initially targeted towards the gaming industry.
"Our partnership with T-Systems continues to progress quickly. In fact, T-Systems has recently secured an agreement with Deutsche Bahn, the German national railroad, who will become the first customer receiving our joint product offering. We expect more to follow and anticipate this agreement will begin producing revenues in the third quarter of 2014.
"We see our relationships with IBM, Fujitsu, T-Systems and others representing just the tip of the iceberg in terms of our opportunities in the commercial and consumer marketplaces. All of these partnerships are progressing well, and although they have not yet produced revenue, there is every indication that the steps we have been taking are building shareholder value and will ultimately provide a steady stream of recurring revenue."

March Networks® recently announced that...
And, in other recent news...
March Networks®, a global provider of intelligent IP video solutions, today announced that America's largest wine and spirits superstore Total Wine & More has standardized on its next-generation retail video surveillance solution. The privately-owned chain is using the March Networks offering to maintain its strong security and loss prevention efforts across 100 outlets located in 15 states, and to capture clear video evidence to assist with liability protection as it grows its e-commerce business.
Total Wine, which is adding 12-15 new stores annually, transitioned to the March Networks 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs and Visual Intelligence software when it began opening Internet fulfilment centers in its stores. The 25,000-square-foot retail outlets hold nearly 14,000 types of wines, beers and spirits and feature walk-in cigar humidors and keg rooms, wine tasting areas and classrooms. While existing analog cameras are in place to monitor the stores' public areas, Total Wine needed high-definition (HD) IP cameras to capture essential data when packaging bottles that could retail for up to $2,000. The 8000 Series recorders can support a mix of analog and IP cameras or as many as 32 IP cameras, giving Total Wine the freedom to transition to HD video cost-effectively as its business requirements evolve.
"We didn't want to abandon our analog cameras, and the March Networks solution allowed us to add more IP cameras to our build-out where and when we needed them," said Total Wine Senior Project Manager Mark Ganter. "We're very happy with the solution and the support we have received. We have such vast coverage that we can see almost every part of a store, and we now use the video surveillance system if we need to investigate a problem or inspect an area in any of our stores."
Total Wine operates mini-fulfillment centers within select stores, where product is pulled from the shelves, packaged and shipped to customers by courier. IP cameras in the fulfillment rooms capture images of the bottles, shipping information and labels for proof of packaging and delivery. Additional IP cameras are positioned to capture the pickup by the courier, at which time all liability transfers to the courier. If the need arises, Total Wine can review its video archives to retrace the steps of the fulfillment process and verify exact details.
The high-performance March Networks 8000 Series Hybrid NVRs provide the retailer with unparalleled reliability and scale, centralized system management and the ability to remotely access live and recorded video. In the future, Total Wine may also take advantage of video analytics and software applications available in the March Networks retail portfolio for expanded loss prevention, operations and marketing intelligence.
"Our experience working with some of the world's largest retailers has resulted in our next-generation offering, which is ideally suited to help organizations like Total Wine & More protect and grow their business and optimize operations," said Net Payne, Chief Marketing Officer, March Networks. "Retailers are using video-based intelligence to better protect assets, prevent losses, enhance security and increase profits in the process. The technology is now considered a competitive advantage rather than just a security system."

You are moving to the Cloud. The question is not if, it’s when. Now that your competitors are in the cloud and lapping you, your “when” better hurry up and get here. But saying and doing are two different things. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Robert Reeves, CTO of Datical, explained how DevOps can be your onramp to the cloud. By adopting simple, platform independent DevOps strategies, you can accelerate your move to the cloud. Spoiler Alert: He also makes sure you don’t forget the database in your adoption of DevOps and the cloud.

When people aren’t talking about VMs and containers, they’re talking about serverless architecture. Serverless is about no maintenance. It means you are not worried about low-level infrastructural and operational details. An event-driven serverless platform is a great use case for IoT. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Animesh Singh, an STSM and Lead for IBM Cloud Platform and Infrastructure, will detail how to build a distributed serverless, polyglot, microservices framework using open source technologies.

In the world of DevOps there are ‘known good practices’ – aka ‘patterns’ – and ‘known bad practices’ – aka ‘anti-patterns.' Many of these patterns and anti-patterns have been developed from real world experience, especially by the early adopters of DevOps theory; but many are more feasible in theory than in practice, especially for more recent entrants to the DevOps scene. In this power panel at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, moderated by DevOps Conference Chair Andi Mann, panelists discussed the patterns and anti-patterns of DevOps, and what it means to ‘do the right thing’ in a DevOps wa...

CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cross-functional purposes. So, when traditional IT Service Management (ITSM) meets the cloud, and equal...

More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how developers and operators work together to streamline cohesive systems.
