SAN MATEO, Calif., Dec. 03, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Scalyr, the log management and observability company that helps engineers spend less time troubleshooting and more time building value, today announced that it has been named as a Representative Vendor in AIOps Platforms in the November 7th, 2019 Gartner report titled, “Market Guide for AIOps Platforms”1 by Charley Rich, Pankaj Prasad and Sanjit Ganguli.

According to the report, “use of AIOps platforms to augment IT functions such as event correlation and analysis, anomaly detection, root cause analysis and natural language processing is growing rapidly. However, application of AIOps to functions such as ITSM and DevOps is progressing at a slower pace” and “AIOps platform offerings have split into two approaches: domain-agnostic and domain-centric solutions.”

Scalyr is named as a Representative Vendor in AIOPs Platforms of Domain-Agnostic (DA) AIOPs. According to the report, “Domain-agnostic AIOps — Vendors going to market with a general-purpose AIOps platform. These products tend to rely mostly on monitoring tools to perform data capture and cater to the broadest use cases.” Further, “Gartner estimates the size of the AIOps platform market at between $300 million and $500 million per year.”

The report notes that “AIOps platforms must be able to ingest data-at-rest (historical) and data-in-motion (real-time, streaming). These platforms allow for the ingestion, indexing and storage of event data, wire data, metrics, traces, and graph and document data. These tools for IT operations must also analyze data directly at the point of ingestion in real time without requiring data to be first saved to a database before it can be analyzed. They must also provide a correlated analysis across multiple streams of real-time and historical data.”

“We are glad to be recognized as a Representative Vendor in AIOps Platforms in Gartner’s Market Guide report,” said Christine Heckart, CEO of Scalyr. “To us, the ability to ingest critical operational data at scale and speed, and the ability to get immediate results without delay is seen as crucial to an effective IT service management strategy. We believe the practical recommendations to begin building an AIOps capability that can give immediate insights point to Scalyr’s strengths as a highly scalable, simple-to-use and cost effective platform.”

We believe the information provided in the report is of value to all B2B, B2C and eCommerce professionals who are seeking to increase service performance and availability.

Calian Adopts Shareholder Rights Plan

Reading Time: 4 minutes

OTTAWA, Dec. 12, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Calian Group Ltd. (TSX: CGY) today announced that it has adopted the 2020 Shareholder Rights Plan (the “Rights Plan”).  The Company’s prior 2010 Shareholder Rights Plan expired in 2019.  

The Rights Plan, which is effective immediately but is subject to shareholder approval, will help to better ensure that all shareholders are treated fairly and receive equal treatment in the face of an unsolicited take-over bid for the Company.  Shareholders will be asked to confirm the Rights Plan at the Annual and Special Meeting of Shareholders to be held on February 6, 2020 and the Rights Plan will need to be reconfirmed by shareholders every three years after that. If this confirmation is not received, the Rights Plan will terminate. 

At the close of business today, one right will be issued and attached to each common share of the Company outstanding at such time and a right will also automatically attach to each common share issued hereafter for as long as the Rights Plan remains in effect. The rights will automatically attach to the common shares and no further action will be required by shareholders.

The rights issued under the Rights Plan become exercisable only when a person, including any party related to it or acting jointly with it, acquires or announces its intention to acquire 20% or more of the Company’s outstanding common shares without complying with the ‘Permitted Bid’ provisions of the Rights Plan. Subject to certain conditions set out in the Rights Plan, should such an acquisition occur, each right would, upon exercise, entitle a rights holder, other than the acquiring person and related persons, to purchase common shares of the Company at a substantial discount to the market price at the time. Certain holdings of common shares, such as positions held by investment managers, trust companies for managed accounts and pension plans will not trigger the Rights Plan unless the holders are participating in making a take-over bid for the Company. Under the Rights Plan, a Permitted Bid is a bid made to all shareholders that is open for not less than 105 days and satisfies certain other conditions set out in the Rights Plan.

The 2020 Shareholder Rights Plan was not adopted in response to, or in anticipation of, any specific effort to acquire control of the Company and the Company is not aware of any such pending or contemplated proposals.   The 2020 Shareholder Rights Plan is not aimed at blocking bids, but is designed to ensure that all shareholders are treated fairly and equally and to allow the Company an ability to properly evaluate any offer and maximize value for shareholders.

The form of Rights Plan adopted by the Company is consistent with the current practice and the forms of shareholder right plans adopted by other Canadian public companies. The Rights Plan has been conditionally approved by the Toronto Stock Exchange subject to ratification by shareholders as described above and certain other customary conditions.

A complete copy of the Rights Plan will be filed with Canadian Securities Administrators and will be available at www.sedar.com.
