cisco q4 earnings: stock tanks on subtle q1 outlook and cost cut announcement | alphastreet

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Networking giant Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) reported its fourth quarter 2020 financial results Wednesday. Despite the company beating the earnings and revenue estimates, the softer outlook for the first quarter of fiscal 2021 and the company’s announcement of cost cuts dragged down the stock yesterday. CSCO shares plunged 11.18% and closed at $42.72 yesterday.

Q4 results

While Cisco’s adjusted earnings dropped 4% in the fourth quarter, revenue declined by 9%. Product revenue was down 13% to $8.8 billion.

In the Infrastructure Platforms product category, sales declined across switching, routing, data center and wireless driven products as COVID-19 induced weakness was seen in the commercial and enterprise markets. The bright spot in the quarter was Security, which was up 10% with a strong performance in network security, identity and access, advanced threat and unified threat management.

In terms of orders in Q4, total product orders were down 10%. In the customer segments, the public sector, enterprise, commercial and service provider were down 1%, 7%, 23%, and 5%, respectively.

Change in focus

Like many other organizations, Cisco had re-examined its business and had planned to change its focus. The company now plans to accelerate the transition of the majority of its portfolio to be delivered as a service.

Investments will also be …

IDC Expects IaaS Private, PaaS Private, and SaaS Asia/Pacific spending to increase further in 2020

COVID-19 has accelerated the adoption of digitalization technology and services. Spending on cloud services and technology has been much less affected than spending on other areas. For overall ICT spending in Asia/Pacific, there is a definite intention to reduce budgets in the short term – at least in 2Q20.
At this stage, some countries are signaling that they will still have a modest spend growth for full year 2020. IDC Asia/Pacific’s report titled Cloud and COVID-19: Asia/Pacific (Excluding Japan) examines the latest data on end-user intentions regarding the impact of COVID-19 across IT and cloud spending.

“The pandemic has brought opportunities for some organizations to take advantage of changed operating conditions to address the weaknesses on what projects to deliver under the current conditions,” says William Lee, Research Director for Cloud Services at IDC Asia/Pacific.
As organizations transition to the Next Normal, increased demand for public cloud services has solidified and is likely to be maintained. Asia/Pacific countries are emerging from the immediate reactive state and are building plans for recovery – with some countries moving faster than others. …

SaaS Security Posture Management Startup Adaptive Shield Raises $4M – MSSP Alert

saas security posture management startup adaptive shield raises $4m – mssp alert

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

by Dan Kobialka • Aug 13, 2020
Adaptive Shield, an Israeli cybersecurity startup that specializes in SaaS application security , has raised $4 million in seed funding from venture capital firm Vertex Ventures Israel.
The company will use the funding to explore ways to automate control of SaaS application security, according to a prepared statement. It also plans to develop channel partnerships with IT service providers and resellers.
Numerous companies offer cloud security posture management (CSPM) software tools for infrastructure platforms like Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform. Instead of focusing on the infrastructure layer, Adaptive Shield focuses on the cloud application layer.

Indeed, Adaptive Shield helps organizations safely integrate Office 365, Slack, Zoom and other SaaS apps into their workflows, the company said. To do so, Adaptive Shield offers a platform that continuously monitors an organization’s SaaS apps and detects misconfigurations, incorrect permissions and potential exposures.
Key features of Adaptive Shield’s platform include:

Compliance Evaluation and Risk Scoring: Analyzes and scores SaaS apps against NIST, SOC 2, HIPAA and other compliance frameworks.
Implementation: Offers a self-service wizard to help an organization quickly link its SaaS apps to the platform and automatically discover security issues.
Policy Enforcement: Unifies policies across an …

Software-as-a-Service Stocks Save Nasdaq From Cisco Swoon @themotleyfool #stocks $CSCO $ZM $DDOG $CRM $^COMP

The Nasdaq Composite (NASDAQINDEX:^COMP) held up well on Thursday, keeping its big gains from Wednesday even as other major benchmarks gave up ground. At 3:30 p.m. EDT, the index was up 44 points to 11,055, while the Nasdaq-100 climbed higher by 36 points to 11,194.
Ordinarily, a 12% drop in shares of tech giant Cisco Systems (NASDAQ:CSCO) would have been enough to send the Nasdaq falling sharply. Yet elsewhere in technology, stocks of companies using software-as-a-service (SaaS) business models fared extremely well and offset some of Cisco’s losses.

A SaaS-y market
Some of the best performers of 2020 were among those stocks posting solid gains today. Zoom Video Communications (NASDAQ:ZM) was up more than 4%, while data analytics company Datadog (NASDAQ:DDOG) climbed over 7%.
SaaS stocks had gotten hit hard recently, so part of today’s bounce was simply a recognition of their intrinsic value. There’s a lot of controversy about appropriate valuations for these young, fast-growing companies. Their shares have therefore been extremely volatile, enjoying solid overall gains but occasionally experiencing gut-wrenching declines. Overall, SaaS companies are faring well during the coronavirus pandemic, as digital innovation has forced businesses of all types and sizes to add to their tech capabilities. …

We’re exploring the future of SaaS at Disrupt this year

we’re exploring the future of saas at disrupt this year

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

It’s been a wild year for modern software companies, often called software-as-service (SaaS) firms due to how they deliver their product. From a strong start to the year, to a rapid devaluation in the face of a global pandemic, and a return-to-form after it became clear that software wasn’t a category that a consumer recession would harm.
Indeed, SaaS and other cloud companies have seen their valuations reach new heights in 2020, pushing the larger stock market up as their own worth soared. These frothy, booming times make the larger effort to take software into new parts of the larger global economy all the more exciting.
After all, if public SaaS companies are worth more than ever, startups themselves are inherently worth more, which means that even more capital should pour into the young companies that want to transform software eating the world from catchphrase into reality.
To dig into the SaaS market this year, we’ve compiled a panel of well-known investors to chat with TechCrunch at Disrupt this September 14-18. We’re bringing Canaan Partners‘ Maha Ibrahim, Andreessen Horowitz’s David Ulevitch, and Bessemer Venture Partners’ Mary D’Onofrio to help explain the changed world to us. ( …

What Separates Enterprise App from Standard Software?

Information Technology is a vast field with a comprehensive glossary few people have consolidated knowledge of. As a result, we see a discrepancy in many online sources with non-related IT terms being used interchangeably. This often happens while discussing enterprise software applications. 
The layman tends to mix up enterprise software development and standard software engineering when one is just a subset of the other. 
With that thought, it’s time to cover this still not settled topic around the differences between enterprise software development and standard software development. What makes it all the more important now is that the global enterprise mobility market is poised to be worth $140 billion by 2020.
What Does Enterprise Software Mean?
Breaking down the term would self-define it. An enterprise is a business. Software that is tailored to suit the needs of a business is therefore an enterprise software. While a single software might suffice to process particular tasks, a collection of such software packages is needed to support the day-to-day needs of an organization. This collection formulates an Enterprise System (ES).
The scope of work of enterprise software applications depends on the nature of business. …

Slope Announces Partnership with FSU Actuarial Science Program

slope announces partnership with fsu actuarial science program

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

ATLANTA, Aug. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Slope Software, a cloud-based actuarial software-as-a-service provider, announced on Thursday that it has formed a partnership with the Actuarial Science Program at Florida State University (FSU).
Beginning with the Fall 2020 semester, some Actuarial Science students at FSU will use the SLOPE platform to complete a financial analysis investigation and integrate their conclusions with their coursework.
“All majors have a writing component for their capstone course,” said Steve Paris, PhD, Coordinator of Actuarial Science. “This capstone project will allow students to see a real-world application, and practice communicating their results in a way that’s similar to what they might encounter early in their career.”
Traditionally, this kind of university/industry partnership has been limited due to the traditionally high barriers in using actuarial software. Those barriers have included significant hardware minimums and non-intuitive interfaces, leading to slow learning curves.
As a result, many actuarial science students graduate without practical experience using software they may later apply in their career.
Such limits mean students are often very well versed in the theory, but not the application, of actuarial science. That reduces the chance of contributing value to their employers early, as they may spend a significant amount of …
