NEW YORK, February 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
Today, National Traders Association announced new research reports highlighting Oracle Corporation (NASDAQ:ORCL), Adobe Systems Incorporated (NASDAQ:ADBE), Macy's, Inc. (NYSE: M), Sears Holdings Corporation (NASDAQ: SHLD) and The Boeing Company (NYSE: BA). Today's readers may access these reports free of charge - including full price targets, industry analysis and analyst ratings - via the links below.
Oracle Corporation Research Report
Oracle has explained its plans to allocate $72 billion for the cloud computing market. One way that the company plans to make use of this budget is to add a new edge to their infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud computing offerings. The company will install high-end hardware called "engineering systems" loaded with Oracle software in a customer's data center. The customer will pay a monthly fee to rent them, and they will be stored in a "private cloud" that involves both hardware and software. The inclusion of hardware in their IaaS offerings was made to boost the use of the company's hardware as well as to increase the number cloud subscribers. Oracle CEO Larry Ellison said that he expects hardware sales to turn positive in the fourth quarter, with products like the company's Exa-series and Sparc engineered systems being offered in the new IaaS system.

Adobe Systems Incorporated Research Report
Adobe is also incorporating new features to its Creative Cloud service. Incorporating Behance into the Creative Cloud service will lead to an increase in subscribers by 1 million. This will allow the company to earn $685 every year from subscriptions. To boost its sales higher, the company is also producing tablet and smartphone catalog apps to engage mobile-based shoppers. Adobe had a strong fourth quarter due to cloud subscriptions, and the company is planning to continue this momentum. The software producer is planning to transition to a complete cloud delivery model within four years. By 2015, the company expects to have approximately 4 million Creative Cloud subscribers.

Macy's, Inc. Research Report
Despite slow retail sales growth, analysts are still bullish towards Macy's. The company is one of the most solid department stores with a track record of strong execution. Over the next 5 years, analysts forecast a 10.8 percent annual growth rate, backed by a 2.2 percent dividend yield. The company has been successful in monetizing its online business, with online sales growing by 40 percent in Q3 2012. Looking forward, a greater percentage of sales may come from online mediums and Macy's is able to secure its position in the mobile front.

Sears Holdings Corporation Research Report
The company is among the retailers that may have to close down stores in 2013 to improve margins. The company has been struggling for years now; but after billionaire and new Sears CEO Eddie Lampert purchased more than 332,000 shares at an average price of $40.89 per share, analysts see this move as bullish, making the Sears a decent purchase. Another investor who remains confident with Sears is Bruce Berkowitz, accumulating almost 17 million shares. He noted that the investment in the company is more of a real estate play, not a retail play. By buying the company, investors would get the real estate and the brands for free.

The Boeing Company Research Report
Due to the crisis surrounding its 787 Dreamliner, Boeing's stock fell down two percent in January when investors fled the aerospace company's shares at the first sign of trouble. However, it's recently reported quarterly earnings beat analysts' expectations. Revenue climbed to $22.38 billion with a $1.28 EPS. Analysts expected only $22.36 billion in revenue and EPS of $1.19. For 2013, the company expects EPS of $6.10 to $6.30 and revenue of $82 billion to $85 billion. Offsetting the issues regarding the 787 Dreamliner, Boeing announced the increased production rate for its next-generation 737 jetliner, aiming to turn out 38 planes per month. This ramp-up in 737 production shows that the company is continuing to produce its other planes on schedule despite the delay with the 787 Dreamliner due to problems with the batteries. Overlooking the 787 Dreamliner issue, Boeing is in good shape financially, with strong revenue in military and commercial sectors. The company is focusing on expanding its international defense and space markets, recently securing a $4 billion deal with Saudi Arabia to overhaul its air force fighter jet fleet. This expansion is important, given the US defense budget cuts.

A critical component of any IoT project is what to do with all the data being generated. This data needs to be captured, processed, structured, and stored in a way to facilitate different kinds of queries. Traditional data warehouse and analytical systems are mature technologies that can be used to handle certain kinds of queries, but they are not always well suited to many problems, particularly when there is a need for real-time insights.
