CORK, Ireland, Feb. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- SolarWinds, a leading provider of powerful and affordable IT management software, today at Cisco Live® EMEA 2017 unveiled its PerfStack™ dashboard, an entirely new way of visualising and correlating IT monitoring data to improve troubleshooting of performance issues across the IT environment, from infrastructure to applications. A significant update to the SolarWinds® Orion® platform, PerfStack is a new, highly customisable yet simple-to-build dashboard. It allows IT administrators to selectively drag and drop critical real-time and historical metrics from SolarWinds Orion platform-based products into a single pane to visualise the relationship between suspect elements. This innovative visualisation enables them to identify, isolate, and troubleshoot performance problems in ways never before possible. A photo accompanying this announcement is available at http://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/a5221fad-a737-4b26-ba12-0f1e243d2e89 “With hybrid IT, software-defined networking, hyperconvergence, and any number of other disruptive trends impacting today’s IT environments, complex, multi-faceted performance issues that often transcend functional silos are more common than ever,” said Christoph Pfister, executive vice president, products, SolarWinds. “In turn, troubleshooting to resolve these problems is growing increasingly difficult. Enter PerfStack. We’re excited to show Cisco Live attendees how PerfStack, along with our complete portfolio of market-leading products, can help them break down the walls between functional roles, eliminate finger pointing, and solve performance problems faster. It is the next generation of IT troubleshooting.” PerfStack: The Next Generation of IT Troubleshooting The PerfStack dashboard empowers IT administrators to simply yet dynamically combine time series and relationship data from many different sources—such as a switch, router, virtual machine, host, application, LUN, storage array, or web transaction—into a single custom pane. This includes disparate data. For example, PerfStack enables administrators to combine network latency and bandwidth data from SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor with LUN IOPS data from SolarWinds Storage Resource Monitor into a single chart to troubleshoot iSCSI performance issues. With the PerfStack dashboard, administrators are also able to better collaborate with others by easily sharing the custom PerfStack charts they have created. This powerful feature helps break down the functional silos within their IT organisations and solve performance problems faster. Learn More by Joining “The Key to Network Management in a Hybrid IT World” On Tuesday, February 21, 2017 at 1:40 p.m. GMT+1, Patrick Hubbard, Head Geek™, SolarWinds, will present, “The Key to Network Management in a Hybrid IT World,” as part of the Cisco Live EMEA 2017 Partner Theater. During the talk, Hubbard will discuss the benefit of tools such as PerfStack, among others, in solving the challenges of modern network management. Specifically, Hubbard will address the following: “As applications become increasingly distributed in hybrid IT environments, IT and DevOps professionals face the challenge of ensuring performance regardless of deployment topology. Moreover, applications are rapidly evolving and the network behaviours of yesterday don’t accurately forecast the traffic patterns for tomorrow. IT management software must give additional visibility into the entirety of hybrid IT deployments to deliver optimal experience for end-users. New tools based on automated context mapping now allow administrators to make optimal decisions to changing physical or virtual network flows faster than ever before. Real-time, end-to-end maps, continuous analysis, automated context discovery, and composite metric views are finally beginning to address the challenge of Hybrid IT.” See PerfStack in Action at Booth E1A/E1B Meet SolarWinds Head Geeks™ Hubbard and Leon Adato, as well as other SolarWinds product experts at booth E1A/E1B to participate in live demonstrations of the PerfStack dashboard, as well as a preview of upcoming Cisco® Meraki® support within SolarWinds Network Performance Monitor. Also available for demonstration will be the complete portfolio of products from SolarWinds, recently named the global market leader in network management software by industry analyst firm International Data Corporation® (IDC®) in its latest Worldwide Semi-Annual Software Tracker.

As an expert in visualization and cybersecurity, the French software publisher recorded double-digit growth for the fourth consecutive year, reaching 5.7 million euros for the 2016 fiscal year. Driven by its state-of-the-art solutions, Systancia intends to continue its development in 2017 by focusing on international and large customers. Paris, France, March 02, 2017 --( With a turnover of 5.7 million euros and a continuing profitability, Systancia ended 2016 with accelerating momentum. In a market where IT spending has dropped by 0.6% worldwide in 2016, Systancia’s growth is all the more impressive. This hyper-growth has allowed the company to become one of 40 innovative companies selected by Bpifrance in May 2016 to be integrated in its “Scale Up” development program: a great opportunity for this gem of French IT. At the same time, the quality delivered to customers and partners remained top priority, with a customer satisfaction of 97%. For Systancia, 2016 ended with the company merging with the Paris-based Avencis Company, one of the leaders in single sign-on (SSO) and identity management authentication (IAM). This external growth operation enables Systancia to strengthen its application delivery solution portfolio and to offer a comprehensive and global offering, focused on security and users. In 2016, the publisher devoted 25% of its investments to R&D. It is regularly launching new features, allowing it to outstrip the market and stand out from world-famous American competitors. As such, in 2013, it decided to integrate machine learning technology into its products. The reliability of the solutions thus proposed by Systancia has then been recognized by ANSSI, which recently awarded IPdiva Secure 8, the publisher’s security solution, with the Certification – Elementary Level. IPdiva Secure is currently the only certified solution of its category to be recommended by the organization to ensure the IT security of administrations, of the 250 operators of vital importance (OVI) and, more generally, of companies. As another acknowledgement of the company’s achievements, the “French Cybersecurity” label was awarded to this same solution at the International Cybersecurity Forum held in Lille last month, in the presence of Bernard Cazeneuve, French Prime Minister. In addition to guaranteeing a French solution for companies, this label attests to the clear and well-defined functionality of IPdiva Secure 8, whose quality level is verified by an independent jury made up of three bodies divided between the industrial sector, user associations and institutions. Consolidating the offering and developing the international market In order to consolidate its position in France, Systancia will continue to attract new talent during the year. From sales representatives to R&D engineers to a management controller, more than a dozen new hires are expected to join the 76 French employees in Sausheim (Alsace), Paris and Cesson-Sévigné (Brittany). This workforce growth reflects Systancia’s rapid development in both the cyber security and virtualization markets. To support this expansion, a Channel Manager has also been appointed to implement the new Systancia Partners program in France. With regard to its products, the publisher continues to focus on innovation in order to establish itself as one of the models of IT infrastructure in France. A 3rd version of IPdiva Care, a privileged access management solution (PAM) has been announced for mid-April and promises advanced analytics and anticipation capabilities to eliminate cyber threats. With AppliDis Fusion 6, the next version of its application virtualization and VDI (Virtual Desktop Infrastructure) solution that will be available in the second quarter, Systancia is offering the 1st VDI architecture based on the hyper convergence model: a scale-out architecture based on microservices capable of supporting up to 40,000 users in a single farm without performance loss. As for unified authentication, beginning in March, Avencis SSOX 10 will offer advanced functionalities for strong authentication and management of password complexity. A dozen customers already signed in the United States, in the EMEA zone and in the Middle East, as well as a British distributor… Although some 10% of its turnover is already made internationally, Systancia plans to intensify its activities outside of France. Several countries are in the start-up phase, particularly Germany. “Our development is based on two guiding principles: to innovate differently by pushing the limits of the market existing solutions’ performance through machine learning, and to deliver, together with the men and women of Systancia, an exemplary service to our partners and customers. With our three recognized product lines and an international presence that is accelerating, Systancia has all of the necessary assets to become a giant of IT,” concluded Christophe Corne, Chairman of the Board and founder of Systancia. About Systancia Founded in 1998, Systancia is a recognized French editor in virtualization and cybersecurity, offering the next generation of application delivery infrastructure focused on users and security: application virtualization and VDI solutions, external access security, privileged access management (PAM), single sign-on (SSO) and identity management (IAM). Building on R&D as a growth engine, the Alsatian publisher relies on the technological value of its products and the closeness between its teams and its customers to meet the needs of users. Agile and in constant search of innovations, Systancia often outstrips the market leaders, bringing down the last barriers standing in front of it. In 2016, Systancia achieved a turnover of 5.7 million euros and has 76 employees in three locations: Sausheim, Paris and Rennes. http://www.systancia.com/en Paris, France, March 02, 2017 --( PR.com )-- A strong growth and ANSSI-certified expertiseWith a turnover of 5.7 million euros and a continuing profitability, Systancia ended 2016 with accelerating momentum.

Le Clarius L7 est idéal pour le guidage des procédures et l'imagerie des structures superficielles. Le but de Clarius est de rendre les systèmes échographiques plus facilement accessibles aux professionnels de la santé en permettant d'effectuer des achats en ligne. Une équipe de télévente est responsable du portail d'e-commerce de la société. Les Scanners Clarius sont également disponibles dans un réseau de partenaires de distribution dans certains pays d'Europe et au Moyen-Orient.

ARLINGTON, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--MicroPort Orthopedics Inc., a medical device company that develops and manufactures cutting edge joint replacement implants designed to help patients achieve full function faster, announced that The Knee has published a study evaluating long-term clinical and radiographic outcomes of the Medial-Pivot Knee System. The results demonstrate excellent clinical outcomes for both satisfaction (95%) and survivorship (98.8%) at 17 years with patients noting a great sense of stability and comfort during regular activities.1 It has been reported that approximately 20% of patients are not satisfied with the outcome of their total knee replacement as a result of residual pain and functional issues often attributed to implant design.2 MicroPort’s Medial-Pivot Knee System is uniquely designed to restore stability and normal knee kinematics to deliver reproducible outcomes that can improve function and drive patient satisfaction. “I am in my third year of using the Evolution® Medial-Pivot Knee System and this publication validates the results that I have seen in my practice,” says David Backstein, MD, MEd, FRCSC, Head of Orthopaedic Surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto, Ontario. “In my experience, the functional outcomes for patients treated with this system have certainly been superior than the systems I’ve used in the past and patients have fewer complaints. When I see them at six or eight weeks follow-up, they're at a different stage of recovery than I was seeing previously with traditional implant designs. I've been exceptionally happy with the results and feel comfortable knowing I am implanting a prosthesis with 98.8% survivorship at 17 years.” The paper, titled, A Long Term Clinical Outcome of the Medial Pivot Knee Arthroplasty System was authored by George A Macheras et al. from the “KAT” General Hospital, Athens, Greece. In the study, 325 patients with knee osteoarthritis underwent Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) using the Medial-Pivot prosthesis. All patients showed a statistically significant improvement in the Knee Society clinical rating system, Western Ontario and McMaster Universities Osteoarthritis Index, and Oxford knee score. The majority of patients (94%) were able to perform age-appropriate activities with average knee flexion of 120° and 98% of patients reported relief of pain to be excellent, very good or good. Additionally, survival analysis showed a cumulative success rate of 98.8% at 17 years.

Forward-looking Statements This press release includes or may include forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements include the Company’s financial performance outlook and statements regarding goals, beliefs, strategies, objectives, plans or current expectations. These statements involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors which may cause the actual results to be materially different from any future results, performance or achievements contemplated in the forward-looking statements. Such factors include: economic conditions, especially as they relate to commercial and consumer credit conditions and consumer spending, particularly in regions where our business may be concentrated; commercial real estate property values, vacancy rates and general conditions of financial liquidity for real estate transactions; trends in pricing and risk assumption for commercial real estate services; the effect of significant movements in average cap rates across different property types; a reduction by companies in their reliance on outsourcing for their commercial real estate needs, which would affect revenues and operating performance; competition in the markets served by the Company; the ability to attract new clients and to retain major clients and renew related contracts; the ability to retain and incentivize producers; increases in wage and benefit costs; the effects of changes in interest rates on the cost of borrowing; unexpected increases in operating costs, such as insurance, workers’ compensation and health care; changes in the frequency or severity of insurance incidents relative to historical experience; the effects of changes in foreign exchange rates in relation to the US dollar on the Company’s Canadian dollar, Australian dollar, UK pound and Euro denominated revenues and expenses; the impact of political events including elections, referenda, trade policy changes, immigration policy changes, hostilities and terrorism on the Company’s operations; the ability to identify and make acquisitions at reasonable prices and successfully integrate acquired operations; the ability to execute on, and adapt to, information technology strategies and trends; the ability to comply with laws and regulations related to our global operations, including real estate licensure, labour and employment laws and regulations, as well as the anti-corruption laws and trade sanctions; political conditions, including political instability and any outbreak or escalation of terrorism or hostilities and the impact thereof on our business; and changes in government laws and policies at the federal, state/provincial or local level that may adversely impact the business. Additional information and risk factors are identified in the Company’s other periodic filings with Canadian and US securities regulators (which factors are adopted herein and a copy of which can be obtained at www.sedar.com). Forward looking statements contained in this press release are made as of the date hereof and are subject to change. All forward-looking statements in this press release are qualified by these cautionary statements. Except as required by applicable law, Colliers undertakes no obligation to publicly update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise. Summary financial information is provided in this press release. This press release should be read in conjunction with the Company's annual consolidated financial statements and MD&A to be made available at www.sedar.com. 1. Reconciliation of net earnings from continuing operations to adjusted EBITDA: Adjusted EBITDA is defined as net earnings from continuing operations, adjusted to exclude: (i) income tax; (ii) other expense (income); (iii) interest expense; (iv) depreciation and amortization; (v) acquisition-related items; (vi) Spin-off related costs; (vii) restructuring costs and (viii) stock-based compensation expense. We use adjusted EBITDA to evaluate our own operating performance and our ability to service debt, as well as an integral part of our planning and reporting systems. Additionally, we use this measure in conjunction with discounted cash flow models to determine the Company’s overall enterprise valuation and to evaluate acquisition targets. We present adjusted EBITDA as a supplemental measure because we believe such measure is useful to investors as a reasonable indicator of operating performance because of the low capital intensity of the Company’s service operations. We believe this measure is a financial metric used by many investors to compare companies, especially in the services industry. This measure is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP in the United States, and should not be considered as a substitute for operating earnings, net earnings from continuing operations or cash flow from operating activities, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating adjusted EBITDA may differ from other issuers and accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers. A reconciliation of net earnings (loss) from continuing operations to adjusted EBITDA appears below. 2. Reconciliation of net earnings from continuing operations and diluted net earnings per common share from continuing operations to adjusted net earnings and adjusted EPS: Adjusted EPS is defined as diluted net earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations, adjusted for the effect, after income tax, of: (i) the non-controlling interest redemption increment; (ii) amortization expense related to intangible assets recognized in connection with acquisitions; (iii) acquisition-related items; (iv) Spin-off related costs; (v) restructuring costs and (vi) stock-based compensation expense. We believe this measure is useful to investors because it provides a supplemental way to understand the underlying operating performance of the Company and enhances the comparability of operating results from period to period. Adjusted EPS is not a recognized measure of financial performance under GAAP, and should not be considered as a substitute for diluted net earnings per share from continuing operations, as determined in accordance with GAAP. Our method of calculating this non-GAAP measure may differ from other issuers and, accordingly, this measure may not be comparable to measures used by other issuers. A reconciliation of net earnings (loss) from continuing operations to adjusted net earnings and of diluted net earnings (loss) per share from continuing operations to adjusted EPS appears below. Percentage revenue variances presented on a local currency basis are calculated by translating the current period results of our non-US dollar denominated operations to US dollars using the foreign currency exchange rates from the periods against which the current period results are being compared. Percentage revenue variances presented on an internal growth basis are calculated assuming acquired entities were owned for the entire current period as well as the entire prior period. Revenue from acquired entities is estimated based on the operating performance of each acquired entity for the year prior to the acquisition date. We believe that these revenue growth rate methodologies provide a framework for assessing the Company’s performance and operations excluding the effects of foreign currency exchange rate fluctuations and acquisitions. Since these revenue growth rate measures are not calculated under GAAP, they may not be comparable to similar measures used by other issuers. Notes to Condensed Consolidated Statements of Earnings (Loss) (1) Acquisition-related items include transaction costs, contingent acquisition consideration fair value adjustments and contingent acquisition consideration-related compensation expense. (2) Stock-based compensation costs related to the exchange of non-controlling interests in the former Commercial Real Estate Services division for publicly traded shares of Colliers International Group Inc., in connection with the spin-off completed on June 1, 2015. (3) Transaction costs related to the spin-off of FirstService completed on June 1, 2015. (4) Discontinued operations comprise FirstService, which was spun off on June 1, 2015. (5) See definition and reconciliation above.

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--According to the latest market study released by Technavio, the global picture archiving and communication system market is expected to grow at a CAGR of close to 6% during the forecast period. This research report titled ‘Global Picture Archiving and Communication System (PACS) Market’ provides an in-depth analysis of the market in terms of revenue and emerging market trends. This report also includes an up to date analysis and forecasts for various market segments and all geographical regions. Technavio’s sample reports are free of charge and contain multiple sections of the report including the market size and forecast, drivers, challenges, trends, and more. The market research analysis categorizes the global PACS market into three major product segments. They are: The global mini PACS market is expected to grow at a steady pace due to the increase in adoption rate. In most developed countries, small hospitals are being acquired by large medical facilities. These small hospitals have limited infrastructure and investment in PACS help in their development as reference laboratories. The rise in adoption of mini PACS in emerging markets is due to the rise in the number of small hospitals and government initiatives toward centralized healthcare IT systems. According to Srinivas Sashidhar, a lead analyst at Technavio for medical imaging research, “The Americas has recorded increased installations of mini PACS in the recent years. However, it is expected that during the forecast period APAC would lead the global mini PACS market. Cost reduction by vendors would increase the affordability of these PACS in the emerging markets of APAC and EMEA.” The global mid-end PACS market is expected to grow at a rapid pace, due to increase in adoption rate and growing demand for integrated teleradiology network. The improvement in the healthcare IT sector has triggered the installation of integrated systems. Mid-end PACS helps in connecting multi-modality departments and small hospitals, which helps in the enhancement of patient care. Hospitals with 250-500 beds and department specific diagnostic centers are the primary end-users of mid-end PACS. These medical facilities have a sound infrastructure with moderate patient inflow in both emerging and developed markets. The global enterprise PACS market is expected to grow at a steady pace due to a moderate rise in adoption rate. The change in the healthcare IT sector triggers the installation of integrated systems. PACS radiology helps in connecting multi-modality departments and hospitals, which, in turn, helps in the enhancement of patient care. The adoption rate is expected to increase during the forecast period with the reduction in cost by vendors. “Cloud-based applications are beneficial in collating medical imaging data in enterprise PACS. These PACSs help in connecting one medical facility to another. The huge inflow of data is controlled by these PACSs, allowing data sharing and management,” says Srinivas.
