We believe the inclusion of the above non-GAAP measure will be useful to investors because it will enhance the comparability of our

current period results to prior periods' results without comparable charges.  We also believe inclusion of this measure will enhance

comparability of our results to results of our competitors and to the analysts' forecasts because the analysts typically forecast

excluding the effect of share-based payment charge and above one time charges, the non-GAAP measure.  In addition, our

management uses this measure to evaluate our operating performance and compare our results to our competitors.  Management also

uses this measure as a metric to measure performance under our executive compensation program.  










The Company notes that non-GAAP financial measures are not based on a comprehensive set of accounting rules or principles. 

Instead, they are based on subjective determinations by management designed to supplement our GAAP financial measures.  They are

subject to a number of important limitations and should be considered only in conjunction with our consolidated financial statements

prepared in accordance with GAAP.  Among the limitations on the use of the non-GAAP measure are the following:

-   The exclusion of non-GAAP items can have a significant impact on reported GAAP net income and diluted net income per share.

-   Other companies may calculate non-GAAP net income and non-GAAP net income per share differently than MICROS does, limiting

    the usefulness of those measures for comparative purposes.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices.

When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

Further, we seek to do this in a way that does not depend on bundling a JRE with our applications, as this makes downloads and installations rat...

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lead...
Digital Transformation (DX) is not a "one-size-fits all" strategy. Each organization needs to develop its own unique, long-term DX plan.

Forrester Research has predicted the IoT will become “the backbone” of customer value as it continues to grow. It is no surprise that retail is ...
