That is just one of the key topics discussed this week at the Scope Summit for Clinical Op Execs

    The Internet is connecting everything and everybody. We are now moving to the world of sensors, where your garage door tells you it was left open, where motion detectors in your parent's home tells you they broke their normal pattern and may need attention, where actuarial tables become actual!

  • The Punchline Isn't Funny This Time

    Oct 29, 2013
    “Did you hear the one about the household name software giant, the cybercrime gang, and the massive data breach?” Well unfortunately this is no joke, and I’m sure there are certain execs who will definitely not be seeing the funny side (or much of their spouses) whilst they attempt to clear up the mess.

  • The Big Data Catch-22 — Getting a Handle on Big Data When Implementing a Business Analytics Strategy

    Aug 28, 2013
    Big Data — everyone seems to have it and everyone wants to do something with it — and why not? The power of information lies in the ability to analyze and use it to your advantage. While Big Data analytics is one of the hottest trends at the moment, it’s also one of the most difficult to deploy. It’s not as simple as just putting together a business intelligence strategy.

  • A Tale of Two Tokens

    Jul 28, 2013
    Dickens said it best when he wrote, “It was the best of times. It was the worst of times.” In 2013, if you have a computer and an internet connection, information – and in all essences, the world – is literally at your fingertips. On the flip side, this same equation grants information access to those with bad intentions, who can easily use the information to their advantage. So at a time when technology enables great things, it is also its own worst enemy.

  • Lost in Translation

    Jul 25, 2013
    Have you ever read the instructions on a chopstick wrapper or the packaging information on a bag of foreign snacks? While all attempts have been made to teach you how to use chopsticks properly or entice you to stuff your face full of “choco balls,” something just isn’t quite right. Verb tenses and spellings are off. Prepositions are glaringly absent. And who knows what to make of the drawings? While most of the time you can decipher the code, clearly something has been lost in translation. Without the right information you, too, are at a loss at what to do. Believe it or not, this scenario plays itself out each day in the tech world when it comes to data transformation for business integration. Unlike our scenario above where you might go a little hungry, businesses are at risk of losing time and money due to poor data translation. The need to effectively and consistently manage data across all segments of the enterprise grows more imperative every day as the volume of data, the sources from which it derives, and the ways in which it can be leveraged, expands at a rapid clip.

  • B2B Integration: If at First You Don’t Succeed, Get the Right Tools for the Job

    Jul 22, 2013
    For most things in life, I’m a DIY advocate. Paint the bathroom, do an oil change, heck – I even roast my own coffee. Some things however, are best left to the experts, like rebuilding a car transmission, adding a second floor to the house or trying to perform home dentistry (don’t ask). In the tech world, business to business integration falls somewhere in the middle. Most times DIY fails because people don’t have the right tools for the job, or don’t have the right expertise.
