ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., Sept. 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Q4 Systems Corporation (OTCBB:QFOR) announces its focus on the emerging category of SMAC (social, mobile, big data analytics and cloud) technology integration.

The rapid proliferation of social, mobile, big data analytics and cloud technologies has sparked significant developments in business processes that drive accelerated revenue growth while delivering superior customer experiences.

The disruption from the integration of these four technology segments creates an enormous market opportunity for IT technology providers, and it may also threaten many established market participants who are slow to adapt to the changing landscape.

According to Wells Fargo Securities' January 2013 research report on Enterprise IT and Software Technology, SMAC integration represents a $50 billion revenue opportunity over the next five years, as enterprises recognize the potential for revenue growth through technology.

Q4 Systems has established leadership in the SMAC arena early on and has recently released a quarterly, printed SMAC news magazine titled The SMAC Report. In addition to The SMAC Report, Q4 has also launched a weekly SMAC e-news magazine, www.SMACdigest.com. Both the printed SMAC Report and online SMACdigest serve to educate customers and the general public regarding technology innovations and integration issues.

"The SMAC Report addresses critical topics necessary for enterprises to stay competitive in today's fast-evolving environment of Information Technology," says Kyle Cheek, Clinical Professor of Information and Decision Sciences Director at the Center for Research in Information Management at the University of Illinois at Chicago. "I am excited to see a publication targeted at the senior executive level to specifically address some of our biggest concerns with emerging capabilities."

"Remaining competitive in the near future may be entirely dependent on the integration of SMAC technologies, with all four components working together as a holistic ecosystem that enables organizations to reach unprecedented levels of operational efficiency and customer engagement," says Dhru Desai, Q4 Systems' Chairman and CFO. "We see SMAC integration driving revenue via faster, more accurate customer insight and interaction, real-time data for decision making, and streamlined organizational processes."
