DALLAS, Dec. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- ProTek Capital, Inc. (OTCPK: PRPM) is pleased to announce Shareholders updates and recent developments.
The management for ProTek Capital, Inc., filed to re domicile the company to Wyoming. Therefore saving on tremendous expenses of fees and filings with the current Nevada state. As part of preparation for the 2013 season and restructuring of ProTek, the company will open a New Software Development and Marketing office in Nashville. This is in anticipation of closing the Legal Clicks dot Com deal. In addition, ProTek will also have presence at current sister companies locations in Dallas Texas, New York and Florida.
The company is in the final stages of negotiating a funding agreement that will facilitate a completion of several acquisitions.
"We are very picky as to what kind of a deal we will entertain. My group is used to fund our own deals, as we have here with ProTek. However, as we proceed with high end acquisitions, we will seek help with funding groups that we know and trust. We are working with a very reputable group, that will help us achieve these ambitious goals without the typical 'toxic' or Death Spiral financings that is usually associated with Microcap companies and acquisitions. This will allow us to focus on fundamentals such as revenues, product development, earnings per share and EBITDA that will get ProTek a multiple that is indicative to a high tech and software development company. This will be combined with several already existing public companies that are in need of additional software and technology upgrades. These companies already agreed on the co-production deals, so the outlook for 2013 is starting to look very positive for ProTek Capital, Inc.," stated Edward Vakser, interim CEO of ProTek.
ProTek Capital, Inc., has been recently acquired by a new investment group. The new investors implemented a new business plan that would be fulfilled by new management and a newly appointed board.
The recent developments in ProTek Capital, Inc., has prompted this management to release a shareholders update and a recap of recent developments.
The management of ProTek will implement a monthly Shareholders Updates routine. "Along with the normal set of disclosures, significant events and Press Releases, the management will do a monthly Press Release to maintain an information and disclosure flow for our shareholders. We feel that the ProTek Capital in its past form has created a great following among the investment community and our management desires to honor and respect their loyalty to the company. We realized that as we took over and implemented the new business concepts and plans, the investors may speculate and have the wrong ideas about our intent and plans. So, as the interim CEO and a board representative, I wanted to assure that there are certain corporate actions that will not take place. For example, the current interim management as well as the newly assigned board of directors are not contemplating nor consider implementing and reverse stock split. However, we are implementing an aggressive 'buy back' program due to the fact that in our current management opinion, ProTek stock is extremely underpriced and undervalued. Nor are we considering any sort of 'toxic' and/or convertible debenture financing. We feel that since we are self funding group, we can grow and prosper with the current loyal and supportive shareholders," stated Edward Vakser, Chairman/CEO of ProTek Capital, Inc.

There’s a lot of discussion around managing outages in production via the likes of DevOps principles and the corresponding software development lifecycles that does enable higher quality output from development, however, one cannot lay all blame for “bugs” and failures at the feet of those responsible for coding and development. As developers incorporate features and benefits of these paradigm shift, there is a learning curve and a point of not-knowing-what-is-not-known. Sometimes, the only way ...

Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

How can you compare one technology or tool to its competitors? Usually, there is no objective comparison available. So how do you know which is better? Eclipse or IntelliJ IDEA? Java EE or Spring? C# or Java? All you can usually find is a holy war and biased comparisons on vendor sites. But luckily, sometimes, you can find a fair comparison. How does this come to be? By having it co-authored by the stakeholders. The binary repository comparison matrix is one of those rare resources. It is edite...

Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

Software development, like manufacturing, is a craft that requires the application of creative approaches to solve problems given a wide range of constraints. However, while engineering design may be craftwork, the production of most designed objects relies on a standardized and automated manufacturing process. By contrast, much of moving an application from prototype to production and, indeed, maintaining the application through its lifecycle has often remained craftwork. In his session at Dev...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging.

For Golden, the question arose from his observations at a number of DevOps Days events he has attended, where typically the audience is composed of startup professionals: “I have to say, though, that a typical feature of most presentations is a recitation of the various open source products and compo...

This is the final installment of the six-part series Microservices and PaaS. It seems like forever since I attended Adrian Cockroft's meetup focusing on microservices. It's actually only been a couple of months, but much has happened since then: countless articles, meetups, and conference sessions focusing on microservices have been delivered, many meetings and design efforts at companies moving towards a microservices-based approach have been endured, and five installments of this blog series ...

There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing. Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming on...

Bill Doerrfeld at Nordic APIs has written today about how APIs are evolving the B2B landscape. This is a particularly interesting article for me, because my personal background is working for an EDI provider, where I linked EDI processes from the private network to the Internet, over 15 years ago. Vordel was founded to allow new Web Services APIs to be used for B2B. Axway, a B2B software company, acquired Vordel in 2012 to link B2B with Web APIs. This caused a domino effect, with other API Manag...
