Consumers expect a seamless, high-quality experience in today’s mature app economy. They want brands to keep up with new technologies like geo-fencing and personalization, as well as the latest ecosystems like voice assistants and connected cars.
With this high bar for quality, QA organizations often struggle to keep up with:
1. Rapid Release Schedules
3. New Technologies (Voice, AI)
4. Geo-Awareness and Localization 5. Device Fragmentation
6. Unexpected Customer Use Cases
The cost of failure is high in QA. Time, money, and customer loyalty are all at risk when digital experiences don’t meet users’ high expectations.
The pace of innovation for collaboration and unified communications (UC) technologies has been nothing short of incredible during the past few years. IT teams are now able to deliver consistent, simple and high-
quality experiences with voice, video, messaging and chat from any smartphone, tablet, laptop or conference room system. Users can move seamlessly and securely from one device to the next, escalate from one
communication mode to another and share content—all while retaining the context of the meeting or discussion.
Most population health management strategies include initiatives to improve clinical outcomes and decrease the cost of care. Read this one-page interview with Dr. Tina Moen, Deputy Chief Health Officer at IBM Watson Health, as she shares the benefits and insights of collaborative medication management, including incorporating pharmacists in population health strategies.
The enterprise data warehouse (EDW) has been at the cornerstone of enterprise data strategies for over 20 years. EDW systems have traditionally been built on relatively costly hardware infrastructures. But ever-growing data volume and increasingly complex processing have raised the cost of EDW software and hardware licenses while impacting the performance needed for analytic insights. Organizations can now use EDW offloading and optimization techniques to reduce costs of storing, processing and analyzing large volumes of data.
Getting data governance right is critical to your business success. That means ensuring your data is clean, of excellent quality, and of verifiable lineage. Such governance principles can be applied in Hadoop-like environments. Hadoop is designed to store, process and analyze large volumes of data at significantly lower cost than a data warehouse. But to get the return on investment, you must infuse data governance processes as part of offloading.
We are offering this second edition resource as a business oriented, working guide to core data management practices. In this ebook you will find easy to digest resources on the value and importance of data preparation, data governance, data integration, data quality, data federation, streaming data, and master data management.

Imagine you’re running a factory but without a supply chain management system or industrial controls. Instead, you expect your customers to find and fix your delivery and quality problems. Sound ludicrous? Well, in many enterprises that’s the current “supply chain management” process for big and fast data. It relies on the lightly monitored dumping of unsanitized data into a data lake or cloud store, forcing data scientists and business users to deal with failures from data availability and accuracy issues.

One of the fundamental decisions in the design of data centers, server rooms and network closets is which uninterruptible power supply (UPS) systems to use. You cannot be certain that the power you receive from your local utility will be suitable for your equipment, or that it will always be available. And even when you are receiving good-quality power from the utility, equipment inside your facility (such as electric motors) can introduce power problems.
A network/server UPS system conditions input power 24x7 to ensure that your equipment always receives reliable power and protection from damaging and disruptive power problems. A network/server UPS system also supports your equipment during power failures, providing enough battery backup runtime to outlast shorter outages. During longer outages, the UPS system will provide enough runtime to save files and gracefully shut down systems or to ensure that equipment is powered until standby generators are ready to support the load.

When you’re designing a data center, server room or network closet, deciding which racks to deploy and how to configure them should be at the top of your list. Just like building a house, the surface details may steal the spotlight, but it’s the quality of the underlying foundation that makes the difference between success and frustration.
Racks organize IT equipment, such as servers and network switches, into standardized assemblies that make efficient use of space and other resources. Depending on the options you choose, they can also improve power protection, cooling, cable management, device management, physical security, mobility, ease of installation and protection from harsh environmental conditions.
Choosing the right racks and configuring them to match your needs will ensure that your IT equipment operates reliably and efficiently, saving your organization from costly downtime and other needless expenses.
Digital technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in today’s modern healthcare systems. While 95% of hospitals in the United States have implemented Electronic Health Records or EHR, much work remains.1 Patient identification errors continue to plague hospitals and are the precipitating factor for 13% of surgical mistakes and 67% of transfusion mix-ups.2 Nationally, medication errors cause at least one death every day and injure 1.3 million people annually.3 The cost of lost lives, reduced productivity and malpractice insurance fees are debilitating the healthcare industry.
At the center of every hospital’s safety program is the patient wristband, which provides caregivers access to the information they need at every point of care during the patient stay. However, not
all wristbands are of equal quality. Some wristbands are not durable enough to withstand the rigors
of a busy hospital environment, leading to workarounds and mistakes that, in the end, comprise patient care.
In order to provide high quality, cost effective business services in complex, distributed environments, improved IT management strategies are required. Business Service Management (BSM) is a strategic approach to managing IT services in support of improved business performance.
ITIL provides a framework of customizable best practice initiatives that help organizations consistently deliver high-quality IT services. Effective ITIL implementation adds value to the IT infrastructure and improves business and service delivery.
Application Portfolio Optimization (APO) provides executives with tools and information to assess the quality and condition of application assets as well as a means for understanding the impact of proposed application changes.
The key benefit of creating a case management methodology is to multiply its effectiveness by replicating it across the organization's patient-facing departments, practices and functions. In this way, your organization can reduce costs, increase quality and streamline its operations.
