Factors Moving Markets, New Influences - Research Report on Oracle Corporation, Adobe Systems Incorporated, Macy's, Inc., Sears Holdings Corporation and The Boeing Company

NEW YORK, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ:ORCL), Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ:ADBE), Macy's, Inc. (NYSE: M), Sears Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: SHLD) and The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.

Oracle Corporation Research Report

Oracle has explained its plans to allocate $72 billion for the cloud computing market. One way that the company plans to make use of this budget is to add a new edge to their infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud computing offerings. The company will install high-end hardware called "engineering systems" loaded with Oracle software in a customer's data center. The customer will pay a monthly fee to rent them, and they will be stored in a "private cloud" that involves both hardware and software. The inclusion of hardware in their IaaS offerings was made to boost the use of the company's hardware as well as to increase the number cloud subscribers. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said that he expects hardware sales to turn positive in the fourth quarter, with products like the company's Exa-series and Sparc engineered systems being offered in the new IaaS system.

Adobe Systems Incorporated Research Report

Adobe is also incorporating new features to its Creative Cloud service. Incorporating Behance into the Creative Cloud service will lead to an increase in subscribers by 1 million. This will allow the company to earn $685 every year from subscriptions. To boost its sales higher, the company is also producing tablet and smartphone catalog apps to engage mobile-based shoppers. Adobe had a strong fourth quarter due to cloud subscriptions, and the company is planning to continue this momentum. The software producer is planning to transition to a complete cloud delivery model within four years. By 2015, the company expects to have approximately 4 million Creative Cloud subscribers.

Macy's, Inc. Research Report

Despite slow retail sales growth, analysts are still bullish towards Macy's. The company is one of the most solid department stores with a track record of strong execution. Over the next 5 years, analysts forecast a 10.8 percent annual growth rate, backed by a 2.2 percent dividend yield. The company has been successful in monetizing its online business, with online sales growing by 40 percent in Q3 2012. Looking forward, a greater percentage of sales may come from online mediums and Macy's is able to secure its position in the mobile front.

Sears Holdings Corporation Research Report

The company is among the retailers that may have to close down stores in 2013 to improve margins. The company has been struggling for years now; but after billionaire and new Sears CEO Eddie Lampert purchased more than 332,000 shares at an average price of $40.89 per share, analysts see this move as bullish, making the Sears a decent purchase. Another investor who remains confident with Sears is Bruce Berkowitz, accumulating almost 17 million shares. He noted that the investment in the company is more of a real estate play, not a retail play. By buying the company, investors would get the real estate and the brands for free.

The Boeing Company Research Report

Due to the crisis surrounding its 787 Dreamliner, Boeing's stock fell down two percent in January when investors fled the aerospace company's shares at the first sign of trouble. However, it's recently reported quarterly earnings beat analysts' expectations. Revenue climbed to $22.38 billion with a $1.28 EPS. Analysts expected only $22.36 billion in revenue and EPS of $1.19. For 2013, the company expects EPS of $6.10 to $6.30 and revenue of $82 billion to $85 billion.  Offsetting the issues regarding the 787 Dreamliner, Boeing announced the increased production rate for its next-generation 737 jetliner, aiming to turn out 38 planes per month. This ramp-up in 737 production shows that the company is continuing to produce its other planes on schedule despite the delay with the 787 Dreamliner due to problems with the batteries. Overlooking the 787 Dreamliner issue, Boeing is in good shape financially, with strong revenue in military and commercial sectors. The company is focusing on expanding its international defense and space markets, recently securing a $4 billion deal with Saudi Arabia to overhaul its air force fighter jet fleet. This expansion is important, given the US defense budget cuts.

The broad selection of hardware, the rapid evolution of operating systems and the time-to-market for mobile apps has been so rapid that new challenges for developers and engineers arise every day. Security, testing, hosting, and other metrics have to be considered through the process. In his session at Big Data Expo, Walter Maguire, Chief Field Technologist, HP Big Data Group, at Hewlett-Packard, will discuss the challenges faced by developers and a composite Big Data applications builder, focusing on how to help solve the problems that developers are continuously battling.
When it comes to IoT in the enterprise, namely the commercial building and hospitality markets, a benefit not getting the attention it deserves is energy efficiency, and IoT’s direct impact on a cleaner, greener environment when installed in smart buildings. Until now clean technology was offered piecemeal and led with point solutions that require significant systems integration to orchestrate and deploy. There didn't exist a 'top down' approach that can manage and monitor the way a Smart Building actually breathes - immediately flagging overheating in a closet or over cooling in unoccupied ho...

The most painful pain point for any business is the mismatch between supplies a...
Mobile messaging has been a popular communication channel for more than 20 years. Finnish engineer Matti Makkonen invented the idea for SMS (Short Message Service) in 1984, making his vision a reality on December 3, 1992 by sending the first message ("Happy Christmas") from a PC to a cell phone. Since then, the technology has evolved immensely, from both a technology standpoint, and in our everyday uses for it. Originally used for person-to-person (P2P) communication, i.e., Sally sends a text message to Betty – mobile messaging now offers tremendous value to businesses for customer and empl...

Organizations already struggle with the simple collection of data resulting from the proliferation of IoT, lacking the right infrastructure to manage it. They can't only rely on the cloud to collect and utilize this data because many applications still require dedicated infrastructure for security, redundancy, performance, etc. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Emil Sayegh, CEO of Codero Hosting, will discuss how in order to resolve the inherent issues, companies need to combine dedicated and cloud solutions through hybrid hosting – a sustainable solution for the data required to manage I...
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud without worrying about any lock-in fears. In fact by having standard APIs for IaaS would help PaaS expl...

As enterprises capture more and more data of all types – structured, semi-structured, and unstructured – data discovery requirements for business intelligence (BI), Big Data, and predictive analytics initiatives grow more complex. A company’s ability to become data-driven and compete on analytics depends on the speed with which it can provision their analytics applications with all relevant information. The task of finding data has traditionally resided with IT, but now organizations increasingly turn towards data source discovery tools to find the right data, in context, for business users, d...

Who are you? How do you introduce yourself? Do you use a name, or do you greet a friend by the last four digits of his social security number? Assuming you don’t, why are we content to associate our identity with 10 random digits assigned by our phone company? Identity is an issue that affects everyone, but as individuals we don’t spend a lot of time thinking about it. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ben Klang, Founder & President of Mojo Lingo, will discuss the impact of technology on identity. Should we federate, or not? How should identity be secured? Who owns the identity? How is identity ...
