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.
To further recap of the company's current actions:

DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.

Thanks to Docker, it becomes very easy to leverage containers to build, ship, and run any Linux application on any kind of infrastructure. Docker is particularly helpful for microservice architectures because their successful implementation relies on a fast, efficient deployment mechanism – which is precisely one of the features of Docker. Microservice architectures are therefore becoming more popular, and are increasingly seen as an interesting option even for smaller projects, instead of being...

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...

DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.
