In-memory computing platform Hazelcast announced this week that it has closed a $21.5 million funding round. UK-based investor C5 Capital led the round, with participation from existing investors Bain Capital Ventures, Earlybird Venture Capital and Capital One Growth Ventures.

This latest round of capital will allow Hazelcast to accelerate its product roadmap and support go-to-market efforts as the demand for cloud computing solutions rises.

“Hazelcast enables its customers to establish a System of Now through its platform that scales linearly and delivers the industry’s fastest processing for stored and streaming data, leaving competitive offerings far behind as data sizes and processing loads grow.”

“From the cloud to the internet of things, the macro trends hitting today’s enterprises require a new approach to data processing for meeting the time-sensitive demands of data-centric applications,” said Kelly Herrell, CEO of Hazelcast. “Hazelcast enables its customers to establish a System of Now through its platform that scales linearly and delivers the industry’s fastest processing for stored and streaming data, leaving competitive offerings far behind as data sizes and processing loads grow.”

System of Now architecture is heralded for its ultra-fast processing speed and near real-time capability. Unlike traditional disk-based designs, in-memory computing enables data processing at scale. Hazelcast was founded in 2012 to provide alternatives to databases for use cases such as payment processing and fraud detection where even microseconds count. Its Global 2000 enterprise customers include J.P. Morgan Chase, Charter Communications, Ellie Mae, UBS and National Australia Bank.

C5 Capital Managing Partner Marcos Battisti is now the latest addition to Hazelcast’s board of directors, as part of this funding round.

“Hazelcast is a true leader in a rapidly emerging new market dynamic,” Battisti said. “With an incredibly impressive customer list and its advanced in-memory computing architecture, Hazelcast will continue to gain recognition as the world’s largest organizations evolve their business applications to take advantage of the in-memory computing era.”

Australia National Broadband Network Statistics and Analysis 2019 – ResearchAndMarkets.com

9.4 Fixed wireless statistics. 10 The NBN satellite network. 10.1 SKY MUSTER. 10.2 Ka-band satellites. 10.3 Contracts. 10.4 Telstra. 10.5 Viasat.

The “Australia – National Broadband Network – Statistics and Analysis” report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN) is delivered via a multi-technology mix (MTM) to homes and businesses including: fibre to the premises (FTTP), fibre to the building (FTTB), fibre to the node (FTTN), Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC), fixed wireless and satellite.

The purpose of the company nbn is to build a nationwide, wholesale-only, high-speed, affordable open broadband network. NBN Co was rebranded as nbn, the company overseeing Australia’s National Broadband Network (NBN) project. As it does not provide telecommunications services to retail customers, the market opened up existing and new licensed RSPs (Retail Service Providers).

The NBN will increase Australia’s GDP by up to $10 billion and create up to 150,000 new jobs nationally in the digital industry by 2021. The establishment of businesses in areas served by the NBN so far grew at twice the rate of the national average and five times the pace of regions without the network.

NBN Co announced plans in 2018 to be able to more efficiently deploy fibre to the curb (FTTC) services instead of its more conventional DSLAM-based fibre to the basement (FTTB) services when connecting smaller multi-dwelling units (MDUs).

The industry has started to seriously question the regulatory environment around the NBN. The smaller players believe they are in danger of being squeezed out of the market through complex and expensive NBN wholesale offerings. These same arrangements also mean that the end-users are not receiving the benefits of high-speed broadband in an affordable form.

NBN Co has revealed plans to begin deploying skinny fibre (thinner fibre cables) in new housing estates from 2017-2018.

The National Broadband Network announced it would entirely abandon its plan to use the Optus Hybrid Fibre Coaxial (HFC) network to deliver high-speed broadband. NBN will however still be using Telstra’s more extensive HFC network as planned.

Key Developments:

  • NBN Co deploy fibre to the curb (FTTC) services instead of DSLAM-based fibre.
  • NBN Co will deploy skinny fibre (thinner fibre cables)
  • The NBN will increase Australia’s GDP by up to $10 billion.

Factbox: What is Slack?

Slack’s biggest shareholders include Accel Partners, an investor in Facebook and Dropbox, which holds 24%, followed by Andreessen Horowitz, with …

(Reuters) – Slack Technologies Inc, whose instant messaging app has taken workplaces by storm, is scheduled to go public via a direct listing on June 20, instead of the more popular initial public offering route.

Unlike a traditional IPO in which companies sell shares to raise proceeds, a direct listing is a way for existing shareholders to sell stock.

Here are some facts about Slack, which is one of the most high-profile companies left to go public in 2019. Its debut could be a bellwether for other tech listings this year.

E-mail Killer?

Slack is an internet-based platform that allows teams and businesses to communicate with each other. It organizes discussions by topic and group, is similar to instant messaging chatrooms, and allows cooperation on documents and files.

Launched in 2013, Slack has replaced e-mail discussions at many companies, although e-mail is still the dominant medium of communication in workplaces.

Diverse Clients:

The San Francisco-based company, whose customers include Electronic Arts Inc, Nordstrom Inc and Ford Motor Co, said it ended the first quarter with 95,000 paid customers.

Slack had more than 500,000 organizations on its free subscription plan, as of Jan. 31.

As of April 30, Slack had 645 paid customers with over $100,000 in annual recurring revenue, an 84% increase from a year earlier, and these large customers accounted for 43% of its total revenue.

Slack also said it had over 10 million daily active users.

Rising Competition:

Its closest competitor is Microsoft Teams, a free chat add-on for Microsoft Corp’s Office365 users. Other similar platforms include Google Hangouts, Workplace by Facebook and Cisco Systems Inc’s Webex Teams.

The global market for workplace collaboration is expected to hit $3.2 billion by 2021, according to research firm IDC.

Loss Making:

Slack reported an adjusted operating loss of $33.8 million for the quarter, compared with a $20.2 million loss a year earlier.

Slack’s total revenue grew 67% to $134.8 million in the first quarter.

The company expects second-quarter revenue to grow 51% to 53% to a range of $139 million to $141 million, with an adjusted loss of between $77 million and $75 million.

Valuation:

The company was hoping for a valuation of more than $10 billion in the listing, Reuters had previously reported.

Private trading suggests the company could list at a price range of $26-$32, which would imply a market cap of $14 billion-$17 billion, according to funding database PitchBook.

Slack’s last private valuation was $16.1 billion, based on shares sold in private transactions, according to Matthew Kennedy, senior IPO market strategist at Renaissance Capital.

Investors:

Slack’s biggest shareholders include Accel Partners, an investor in Facebook and Dropbox, which holds 24%, followed by Andreessen Horowitz, with 13.3%. Japanese conglomerate SoftBank owns 7.3%.

Fewer Advisers:

The company has hired Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and Allen & Co to be financial advisers on the direct listing, which requires a fraction of the number of banks compared to an IPO.
