Cloud Computing Stock News; Gar Wood Securities Initiates Coverage on GBS Enterprises (OTCBB:GBSX) With $9 Price Target

NEW YORK - June 6, 2011 (Investorideas.com cloud computing stocks newswire) � GBS Enterprises (OTCBB:GBSX), announced today that Gar Wood Securities, a full service institutional broker--dealer located in Chicago, Il, has initiated coverage and issued its Insight Equity Research Report on the Company with a Buy rating and $9 per share target price.
Gar Wood recently raised $7.55MM for GBS with warrant coverage that will result in an additional $9MM funding to the Company.
Some excerpts from the Gar Wood research report are as follows:
Key Points
  • As the largest provider of products and services to IBM's Lotus market, GBS has a long history of working with IBM. The Company is currently working with IBM to market its GROUP Live Cloud Platform and Notes Transformer.
  • The Cloud Computing market was estimated to be $16.5 billion in 2009 and is predicted to increase to $55.5 billion in 2014. GBS competes in this market through its Cloud Automation Platform, which can be customized for a wide range of customers, and its software solutions which are now available in a SaaS format.
  • Due to cost savings and efficiencies, it is estimated that 40% of all business applications will be delivered via the cloud by 2014. We believe GBS' Transformer software provides the only timely, cost effective method to move Lotus Notes applications to the Cloud, without having to rewrite entire applications or move away from Notes.
  • We estimate the total market potential for the Transformer to be roughly $18.0 billion, of which we believe GBS's realizable market could be roughly $5.5 billion. The bulk of this potential revenue would have little cost associated, as it incurs little cost on IBM sales and primarily just programmer cost on applications it transforms.
  • The Company's Transformer was awarded the CTO Award at Lotusphere in 2011, while its Cloud Platform won the IBM Bestseller Award at Lotusphere in 2011 after winning the CTO Award at the 2010 Lotusphere.
  • Management has a track record of completing M&A deals that add new customers and/or technologies at low valuations. It is also working to expand its distribution channels, similar to its recent agreement with Alliance Technology Group to market to the government sector.

Tech Stock Trading Alert: Elephant Talk Communications (OTCBB: ETAK) -- "Securing the Mobile Cloud"

Point Roberts WA, New York, New York- June 6, 2011, Investorideas.com, a leader in sector stock research features a tech stock alert for Elephant Talk Communications (OTCBB: ETAK), an international provider of business software and services to the telecommunications and financial services industries. Shares of ETAK jumped in Thursday’s and Friday’s trading on higher than average volume.
It’s notable that ETAK reported bullish hiring news on June 2, “Elephant Talk Communications Hires HR Pro to Manage Worldwide Hiring Growth”, during the same week that US job data was significantly lower than expected.
Read news: http://finance.yahoo.com/news/Elephant-Talk-Communications-iw-3681823597.html?x=0&.v=1
Elephant Talk is one of the top recommendations in Josh Levine’s Microcap Investor Newsletter.
Highlights from Josh Levine's recent commentary on ETAK:
Levine described Elephant Talk's business model as "Securing the Mobile Cloud." He noted that Elephant Talk intends to manage the mobile cloud, or mobile Internet, to provide access to mobile networks for businesses around the global that are non-telecom, non-tech companies but have huge customer databases. Such companies do not want to invest in IT and telecom infrastructure such as antennas and spectrum, but will look to companies such as Elephant Talk to reach their customers and stakeholders, Levine said.
Levine noted that ValidSoft has advanced its business through its arrangement with Visa Europe and other financial institutions with its fraud-prevention solutions. Levine pointed out that Visa Europe and its 4,000 member banks handle 28 billion transactions a year.
ValidSoft's suite of advanced telecom-based solutions enables banks and other financial institutions to secure all transaction channels, is relatively inexpensive to implement, and is invisible to the customer while maintaining customer privacy, Levine said. ValidSoft has been awarded the European Privacy Seal, he noted.
What makes ValidSoft's solution so revolutionary is that it uses an out-of-band approach, according to Levine. This means that if you want to check or validate what is happening on one network (i.e., Internet), you need another, completely independent network (i.e., mobile) to verify what is happening on the first network.
Additionally, ValidSoft has the world's first commercially available four-factor authentication solution utilizing a single integrated platform. This guarantees a level of security that no competitor can even remotely match today, Levine said.
In pilot programs in the U.K. and Australia, ValidSoft's technology has demonstrated that it reduces transaction false positives from an industry average of 90% to virtually none, Levine said.
Levine also pointed out the significance of Elephant Talk and ValidSoft's strategy of positioning their services in the mobile cloud. As mobile phones are adopted by larger populations, especially where many "unbanked" communities rely on such a device for the transfer and receipt of funds, the mobile or smart phone will rapidly become the dominant form of electronic payment. Levine added that ValidSoft's technology also can provide security to a wide range of transactions in the mobile cloud beyond financial services to include health monitoring, among others.
For the fast-emerging arena of near-field communications (NFC) mobile payments, or the Digital Wallet, Levine said ValidSoft is ideally situated to address privacy and security issues relating to smart phones. The fact is, he said, ValidSoft's technologies were developed for this method and the company had long anticipated that NFC would be the future for transactions. The challenge was to develop a solution within the boundaries that respected the laws and regulations of privacy and data integrity. ValidSoft has succeeded in doing this due primarily to its out-of-band approach, which is now far ahead of competitors, Levine said.

Cloud Computing Stock News; Leading IBM Business Partner Launches Next Generation Offering for Converting Lotus Notes Applications

NEW YORK - June 2, 2011 (Investorideas.com cloud computing stocks newswire) – GBS Enterprises (OTCBB:GBSX), announced that its subsidiary, GROUP Business Software AG, has unveiled a combination of expert services and accelerator tools, called Transformer 2.0, that allows enterprises to transfer large portfolios of Lotus Notes applications to the Web. The launch event was held was held in conjunction with IBM (NYSE:IBM) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) Museum in Cambridge MA on the evening of May 25, 2011. The location was significant because MIT is world renowned for fostering innovation and advancement in technology and Cambridge was also the birthplace of Lotus.

"Helping our customers move to a future with rich capabilities in the cloud is extremely important to our Notes and Domino community," stated Kristen Lauria, VP of Marketing, IBM Collaboration Solutions. "It is a game changer. GBS has provided our customers with a path to transform their Lotus business applicationsto the next generation of web and mobile-capable collaborative applications."Speaking at the event were Joerg Ott, CEO and other executives of GBS Enterprises along with Alistair Rennie, GM, IBM Collaboration Solutions, Kristen Lauria, VP of Marketing, IBM Collaboration Solutions, and Kevin Cavanaugh, VP Business & Technical Strategy, IBM Collaboration Solutions. The event also featured Ryan Chin, Research Specialist at MIT who talked about some of the newest innovations being developed.
For the first time, organizations have a set of analytical and executable processes that transform their existing Lotus Notes rich client applications on to the Web, where they can now be run in the cloud, on mobile devices and be more easily integrate with social media platforms. Transformer provides the continuity of the past with all the benefits that are now available in the latest release of IBM Domino.
This comes at a time when organizations are rapidly embracing new ways to develop and deliver applications to their users. By 2014, 40% of all new business applications will be delivered via subscription or self-service via cloud technology. With over 10 million active Lotus Notes applications worldwide, it is no surprise there is increasing pressure on organizations to web-enable these applications. The challenge is doing so without having to invest in time and resource intensive re-development projects, risky data migration and costly retraining of staff.
GBS points to the very high demand for these conversions as proof companies want to migrate and have not been able to figure out how. "Every day we see companies wanting to move their applications to take advantage of the web, but they have been unable to justify the high financial cost," says Joerg Ott, CEO of GBS. "Transformer provides a turnkey solution combining platform expertise with technology, allowing clients to preserve their existing investments in intellectual capital."
For nearly 20 years, GBS has been singularly focused on delivering compelling business solutions and innovation to the Lotus market. Building on this expertise GBS has developed a comprehensive set of tools and services to plan and execute an orderly and fast migration. "Trying to migrate these applications to a totally different technology like Sharepoint or Google Apps, is disruptive and requires huge amounts of money and time," says Scott Hooks, GM of GBS Experts division. "To be effective, you must have the expertise to know what to do and the technology to do it."
Recent enhancements provided in Transformer 2.0 are:
  • Transformer Investigator -- collects statistics on which applications are being used, how often and by whom so that an organization can target which applications have the highest impact to transform.
  • Transformer Extension Library - allows a variety of enhancements to be applied to all aspects of transformed applications without writing any additional code.
  • GBS WebSpace -- is a web enabled version of the familiar Notes client Workspace.
  • Support of Object Oriented Programming.
  • Ability to maintain application business logic in LotusScript.
