AudioEye, Inc. Appoints Paul Arena as Executive Chairman
TUCSON, AZ -- Jan 30, 2014 -- AudioEye®, Inc. (OTCQB: AEYE) ("AudioEye" or the "Company"), creator of the Audio Internet patented audio browsing and automated publishing technology platform, today announced that Paul Arena has been appointed Executive Chairman and elected to the Company's board of directors.
Mr. Arena succeeds Craig Columbus, one of AudioEye's co-founders, who will continue to serve on the Company's board of directors along with Dr. Carr Bettis, Edward Withrow, III, and AudioEye executives Nathaniel Bradley, Sean Bradley and James Crawford.
"We are excited that Paul is joining the company as Executive Chairman," noted Nathaniel Bradley, Co-Founder and Chief Executive Officer of AudioEye, Inc. "Craig Columbus, our former Chairman, started with AudioEye prior to our incorporation during a nascent and fledgling stage of our development, at a time when our technological innovations were a decade ahead of today's robust and emerging market opportunities. We would not be where we are without Craig's tireless service and exceptional support of AudioEye as our Chairman over the years. Craig has deeply impacted our culture and the trajectory of AudioEye's business model. We are honored to have Craig remain as one of the Company's independent directors."
"Paul Arena, our new Executive Chairman, shares our enthusiasm for AudioEye's core mission of advancing and leveraging, on behalf of our shareholders, the value generated from our ownership of industry-first and thought-leading mobile software," continued Bradley. "Our team's guiding light is true innovation and industry leadership, and Paul has a demonstrated track record of success and is well-known throughout the technology and telecommunications industries. His abilities to identify strategic opportunities, enhance shareholder value, and manage intellectual property portfolios are consistent with our corporate objectives. We are gratified that Paul has elected to spend all of his time helping to grow AudioEye."
Paul Arena, newly appointed Executive Chairman of AudioEye, stated, "My enthusiasm for AudioEye's technology business is shared by each and every other member of our Board of Directors, senior management team and our incredible employees. We have all established aggressive goals for our future growth and profitability and I look forward to contributing towards the achievement of AudioEye's objectives in a number of ways, including strategic partnering and third-party license opportunities."
"It has been my pleasure to serve AudioEye in its formative stages as we pursued our initial strategic objectives," stated Craig Columbus. "Trying to develop technology solutions that can improve the lives of others, such as people with visual impairments and children on the autism spectrum, has always been a very personal and passionate issue for me. The current management is well-positioned to realize the Company's ultimate potential, and I look forward to their future accomplishments."
The Company considers the past twelve months a period of "evolution and progress", during which AudioEye was spun-out from its previous ownership, became a public entity, completed its interim funding requirements, launched its Audio Internet Software-as-a-Service ("SaaS") platform and developed its initial sales strategies. This transition, coupled with increased investment in the Company's SaaS technology platform, has enhanced product functionality, improved customer service and bolstered sales and marketing initiatives, with progress in each of these areas validated by impressive growth of AudioEye's client base.
During the past 30 years, Mr. Arena has served in executive management positions for a number of private and publicly-traded companies and provided corporate finance, syndication and distribution services within the investment banking industry. From June 2010 to September 2012, Mr. Arena was Chief Executive Officer for Augme Technologies, Inc. (now Hipcricket, Inc.) during a period when the annualized revenue "run rate" increased from less than $1 million to $30 million within ten quarters. He was also Chairman of the Board of Augme from September 2011 through September 2012 and remained on the board through the end of December 2012. From February 2002 to March 2010, Mr. Arena held various executive positions, including Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, and Principal Financial Officer, at Geos Communications (formerly i2 Telecom International) and its subsidiaries. From May 2000 to present, he served as Chairman of the Board, Chief Executive Officer, President and owner of AIM Group, Inc., an investment holding company. Before founding i2 Telecom International, Mr. Arena served in various executive capacities, including Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer, at Cereus Technology Partners, Inc. and its subsidiaries (May 1991 to April 2000). Cereus, which secured a listing on the Nasdaq National Market, achieved a market capitalization in excess of $350 million prior to Mr. Arena's departure.
During 1994, Mr. Arena was a financial advisor to, and became a minority equity owner in, Great Lakes Pulp & Fiber, Inc., a $224 million project financing and one of the world's largest paper recycling facilities. From June 1990 to August 1991, Mr. Arena was a financial consultant, and from February 1988 to January 1990, he served as Senior Vice President and Partner of Gulfstream Financial Associates, Inc., a subsidiary of the Kemper Group. During the period 1982 through 1988, Mr. Arena held Vice President positions with three New York Stock Exchange member investment firms, including Cralin & Co.; Drexel, Burnham, Lambert, Inc.; and Interstate Securities Corporation.

With microservices, SOA and distributed architectures becoming more popular, it is becoming increasingly harder to keep track of where time is spent in a distributed application when trying to diagnose performance problems. Distributed tracing systems attempt to address this problem by following application requests across service boundaries, persisting metadata along the way that provide context for fine-grained performance monitoring.

[session] From Build to Scale: Lifecycle of Microservices By @fortyfivan | @CloudExpo #Microservices
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively. What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes ho...

It's easy to assume that your app will run on a fast and reliable network. The reality for your app's users, though, is often a slow, unreliable network with spotty coverage. What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users. An offline-first app is an app that works, without error, when there is no network connection.

How Best to Integrate Cloud Foundry into Your Existing Ecosystem By @Gidrontxt | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps
As someone who has been dedicated to automation and Application Release Automation (ARA) technology for almost six years now, one of the most common questions I get asked regards Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). Specifically, people want to know whether release automation is still needed when a PaaS is in place, and why. Isn't that what a PaaS provides? A solution to the deployment and runtime challenges of an application? Why would anyone using a PaaS then need an automation engine with workflow ...

[session] Focusing on Time-to-Value in Big Data Deployments By @AndyWarfield | @BigDataExpo #BigData
As enterprises work to take advantage of Big Data technologies, they frequently become distracted by product-level decisions. In most new Big Data builds this approach is completely counter-productive: it presupposes tools that may not be a fit for development teams, forces IT to take on the burden of evaluating and maintaining unfamiliar technology, and represents a major up-front expense. In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...
