By admin, 4 lutego, 2013, No Comment

4Q consolidated operating profit reaches 8.84 trillion won (R 72.16 billion) on revenues of 56.06 trillion won (R457.61 billion)

Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd. today announced revenues of 56.06 trillion Korean won (R457.61 billion) on a consolidated basis for the fourth quarter ended December 31, 2012, a 7-percent increase quarter-on-quarter. Consolidated operating profit for the quarter hit 8.84 trillion won (R72.16 billion), representing a 10-percent increase on-quarter, while consolidated net profit for the same quarter was 7.04 trillion won (R57,46 billion). The full-year 2012 operating profit was 29.05 trillion won (R 237,13 billion) on revenue of 201.10 trillion won (R1,64 trillion)

In its earnings guidance disclosed on January 8, Samsung estimated fourth quarter consolidated revenues would reach approximately 56 trillion (R456,10 billion) won with consolidated operating profit of approximately 8.8 trillion won (R71,67 billion). Highlighting the quarterly performance, Mobile Communications generated quarterly revenues of 27.23 trillion won (R189,21 billion), a 4-percent increase compared with the previous quarter. The growth was mainly driven by solid sales of Samsung’s GALAXY S III and GALAXY Note ll. All told, operating profit for IT & Mobile Communications, which encompasses four business units including Mobile Communications, was 5.44 trillion won (R44,31 billion) on revenues of 31.32 trillion won (R 255,09 billion).

“Despite uncertainties in Europe and concerns over the U.S. fiscal cliff creating a difficult business environment, we did our best this quarter to achieve strong earnings based on a strategic focus on differentiated and high value-added products as well as our technological competitiveness,” said Robert Yi, Senior Vice President and Head of Investor Relations. “Heading into this year, we are expecting a slow recovery in the component business due to reduced capital expenditures, while competition in the set business will intensify further as demand slows and the mid- to low-end market expands,” he added. Mr. Yi also expressed caution over the continued strength of the Korean won in 2013.

Samsung’s standout line up of LED TVs, including premium models targeting advanced markets and TVs tailored to emerging markets, has also improved quarter-on-quarter earnings. Although demand for home appliances retreated in the December quarter due to a tepid global economy, Samsung saw increased sales of high-end refrigerators and washers in the U.S. and in European markets.

On the components business side, demand for PC DRAM remained weak but growth of high value-added products such as server and mobile DRAM was constant due to increased sales of mobile devices. While the Semiconductor Business landed profits in the quarter, the Display Panel segment struggled, as demand for IT panels for notebooks and monitors remained slow. On the other hand, profitability in LCD panels for TVs and OLED panels for smartphones prevented wider losses.

As for this year’s capital expenditure, the size of investment is expected to be similar to that of 2012’s.The weakening global economic recovery and looming market uncertainties are anticipated to weigh on plans for investment and performance this year, but despite global economic jitters, Samsung will respond to the market’s ebb and flow with a capex plan that is flexible in manner.

Differentiated Product Mix to Alleviate Chip Supply Squeeze
Samsung’s Semiconductor Businesses – including Memory and System LSI – posted consolidated 9.59 trillion won (R78,11 billion) in revenue, a 10-percent hike from a quarter earlier. The Memory chip unit accounted for 5.33 trillion won (R43,41 billion) in earnings and with the logic chip unit yielded 1.42 trillion won (R11,57 billion) in operating profits, up 39 percent on-quarter. The Semiconductor Business sustained profitability in the quarter, amid weak market demand, thanks to a mix of high-margin products such as servers and Solid State Drives (SSDs) coupled with differentiated 20-nanometer class NAND flash chips. A competitive edge in mobile application processors for smartphones and tablet PCs also contributed to the bottom line.

Looking ahead, demand for memory chips is expected to be stifled in the first quarter, due to the seasonably weak demand for PCs and mobile devices. However, for the remainder of 2013, high value-added DRAM for mobile devices and servers will sustain profitability. Demand for logic products and NAND solutions including SSDs will remain strong throughout the year, as the industry puts greater emphasis on devices with higher capacity, greater processing power and mobility.

High-End Panels Secure Stability
The Display Panel Business recorded an operating profit of 1.11 trillion (R 8,95 billion) won on revenue of 7.75 trillion won (R 63,12 billion) in the fourth quarter. This represented a 5-percent decline in profits compared with the previous quarter but was up from the corresponding quarter of 2011.

Despite slower-than-expected economic recovery in developed markets, panel demand in China and emerging economies remained favourable in the quarter. This was led by solid sales of TV and tablet panels which offset the slowdown in notebook and monitor panel demand.

Samsung was able to secure stable growth for the quarter with an improved product mix and strengthened sales of high-end panels. Sales of LED and narrow bezel panels for premium TVs continued to grow, although the company’s TV panel sales dropped in the mid single-digit percentage range from the same period last year. However, increased sales of tablet panels as well as OLED panels for premium smartphones contributed to steady growth.

Looking ahead to 2013, the company expects the market for large-size TV panels, those over 60 inches in size, to grow. Strong sales of tablet panels are also forecast to continue throughout the year. For the first quarter, however, panel demand is expected to be adversely affected by off-peak seasonality before recovering in March with new TV and tablet product launches by manufactures.

Emerging Markets, a Silver Lining
The IT & Mobile Communications – comprised of Mobile Communications, Telecommunication Systems, Digital Imaging and Media Solution Centre businesses – posted operating profits of 5.44 trillion won (R 44,31 billion) on 31.32 trillion won (R 255,09 billion) in revenue for the period. Out of the total IM earnings, the handset-making unit claimed 27.23 trillion won (R189,21 billion) in revenue in the October-December quarter.

Samsung led gains with its full line up of entry- to mid-level smartphones, expanded sales of tablet PCs and an increase in average selling price (ASP) from the previous quarter. The success was mainly brought on by strong sales of GALAXY S III and GALAXY Note II, which beat the popularity of their predecessors with record sales in record time.

In contrast, growth in network and IT-related IM businesses was stunted by heated pricing in the fourth quarter. On a brighter note, sales of Long Term Evolution (LTE) wireless broadband technology equipment continued gains while revenue from overseas sales of notebook PCs improved.

The furious growth spurt seen in the global smartphone market last year is expected to be pacified by intensifying price competition compounded by a slew of new products. In the first quarter, demand for smartphones in developed countries is expected to decelerate, while their emerging counterparts will see their markets escalate with the introduction of more affordable smartphones and a bigger appetite for tablet PCs throughout the year.

LED TVs Drive Growth
The Consumer Electronics Division – encompassing the Visual Display and Digital Appliances businesses – posted revenue of 13.95 trillion won (R 113,61 billion) for the quarter, up 20 percent quarter-on-quarter. The operating profit of 740 billion won (R 6,05 billion) amounted to an increase of 87 percent on the previous quarter and an increase on-year.

Lifted by peak season sales, the market experienced stronger demand for TV products in both developed and emerging markets as LED TV sales drove overall market growth of over 40 percent on-quarter. Backed by favourable market conditions, Samsung outperformed the market for LED TVs with on-quarter growth of more than 50 percent. This was achieved by the company’s differentiated strategy of focusing on premium models for developed economies and region-specific models in emerging markets.

Heading into 2013, sales will be led by emerging economies and the LED TV segment, which will expand its proportion of total TV sales into the mid-80 percent range. In the first quarter, the company expects off-peak seasonality to dampen on-quarter growth, although demand will be up in comparison with the previous year. For the Digital Appliances market, although global economic conditions pushed demand down on the previous quarter, Samsung was able to expand sales of premium refrigerators and washing machines as the company experienced growth in developed markets such as Europe and the U.S. Looking ahead, the company expects moderate growth in emerging markets while low growth is likely to continue in developed economies.

Intervate garners excitement with SharePoint 2013

By admin, 4 lutego, 2013, No Comment

Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions specialist and Microsoft Gold Partner, Intervate, is taking the lead with holding pre-launch events for Microsoft’s latest Enterprise Content Management product, SharePoint 2013 on the 4th and 5th of February in Cape Town and Johannesburg respectively.

“We have always been ahead of the game and this year will be no different. Though SharePoint 2013 is currently available through volume licensing, the official launch date is yet to be announced by Microsoft South Africa. Our pre-launch events, titled ‘The top 10 things we are excited about, about SharePoint 2013’ will take you on a journey through the aspects of SharePoint 2013 that we believe are the biggest game changers.  We believe that these events will provide decision makers, strategists and technologists alike a significant insight to Microsoft’s latest SharePoint product and how it can help them in their business”,” says Troy Gerber, Director at Intervate Cape Town.

IT Managers, Chief Information Officers (CIOs) and general IT and business executives who need to understand the business value proposition for either deploying SharePoint 2013 for the first time or who are planning the move to SharePoint 2013 in the near future will benefit from the various keynote speakers at the events, such as Gerber himself, Naz Parker, Manager of the SharePoint Shared Service at Sanlam, as well as Akesh Lalla, Business Productivity Sales Manager at Microsoft and Felix Honigwachs, Product Marketing Manager at Microsoft.

Gerber will be extoling the virtues of SharePoint 2013, both from his recent practical experience with customers as well as his knowledge gathered at SharePoint Conference held last year October in Las Vegas.

Sanlam’s Parker will present on Sanlam’s plans and experiences around the implementation of SkyDrive Pro with SharePoint 2013, addressing the needs of executives who are looking for alternatives to other cloud-based virtual storage solutions.

Johannesburg attendees will be treated to an exciting opening address by Akesh Lalla and Felix Honigwachs. They will be sharing a preview of the soon-to-be launched Microsoft SharePoint 2013 and why Microsoft is excited about it.

“SharePoint 2013 is an intuitive solution with increased enterprise content management functionality,” says Gerber. “The solution has the same familiar look and feel of Microsoft Office, making it user-friendly, with no need to learn a complete new platform of operation and navigation.”

The Intervate SharePoint 2013 pre-launch events will provide an important insight into the product and its top functions before the official announcement later this year.

HP helps companies prepare for security breaches

By admin, 2 lutego, 2013, No Comment

HP today announced a new set of security services that help organisations respond to, remediate and mitigate the impact of security breaches as they occur.

Security breaches are increasingly disruptive to organisations and can significantly damage an organisation’s reputation and destroy shareholder value. The cost implications of these breaches can be huge and often expose organisations to litigation. According to a recent study conducted by the Ponemon Institute, the average data breach event in the United States costs an organisation $8.9 million.(1)

The HP Security Breach Management Solution combines HP’s services expertise with security intelligence software to offer clients a comprehensive approach to protect what matters most to their organisations. It provides clients with the security intelligence to more quickly identify a breach and react to it, as well as minimise its impact and reduce ongoing exposure from vulnerabilities. 

“No matter how proactive you are, it’s nearly impossible for organisations to prevent a breach, but they can take control of how they respond,” said Helen Rich, Country Manager, Enterprise Services, HP. “Combining HP’s portfolio of services and software, the HP Breach Management Solution arms clients with the tools and resources to monitor, manage and respond to breaches head on, minimising their impact while readying for the next attack.”

Accelerate response times to protect what matters

The HP Security Breach Management Solution features the new HP Forensic Readiness Service, which helps clients get ahead of attacks before they occur. Leveraging the knowledge of experienced HP consultants, the service helps organisations proactively establish policies and procedures surrounding forensic investigations. As a result, clients are equipped with the resources to quickly gather the best-quality digital evidence in the event of an attack and can apply these policies and procedures to gather and document evidence when the next attack occurs.

HP Forensic Readiness Service enables clients to:

  • Assess current policies and procedures for breach investigation to develop a plan detailing activities, timelines and potential technologies that organisations should consider to improve their forensic readiness.
  • Establish an appropriate forensic readiness policy to create a systematic, standardised and legal basis for the admissibility of digital evidence that may be required in the event of a formal legal dispute.
  • Understand how to best handle forensic investigations and gather digital evidence in the event an incident does occur. 

Regain control during a breach  

The HP Security Breach Management Solution  features services that span the entire security life cycle, ranging from proactive planning and risk management strategies to immediate response measures. Together, these offerings provide a holistic approach to breach management and enable clients to reduce security-related costs, gain greater control of the situation and lower their exposure to risk.

With HP Security Breach Management Solution, clients can:

  • Contain attacks immediately with HP Breach Response Service, which provides 24/7 expert monitoring to detect and respond to intrusions. In the event of a breach, HP dispatches a team of security professionals to the client’s location to assess and investigate the breach and provide recommendations for reducing exposure to future vulnerabilities.
  • Develop a clear set of processes and policies for the collection and analysis of evidence following security incidents with HP Digital Forensic Services.
  • Adhere to regulatory compliance for use in legal investigations and audits following an incident by leveraging HP e-Disclosure and e-Discovery Services, which help organisations develop tight policies and processes for capturing and logging data.
  •  Collect, log, sort and filter relevant security events with HP Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) Services, which leverage HP ArcSight offerings, to enable IT security operations to identify threats and protect systems against them.
  • Mitigate the consequences of data loss or deletion through designing and implementing processes for backup and recovery with HP Data Recovery Services.

Additional information about the HP Security Breach Management Solution is available at www.hp.com/services/security-breach-management.

Pricing and availability 

The HP Security Breach Management Solution is a set of services than can be purchased separately. All services are, or will soon be, available worldwide, and pricing is based on consultancy hours.

HP’s premier Americas client event, HP Discover, takes place June 10-12 in Las Vegas.
