One of the simplest, most effective ways to bring healthcare to the community level is through video collaboration. When video technology is enabled through a standards-based, scalable platform, community members can all join a multipoint video call to collaborate and work together with professionals and even with groups of similarly afflicted, empathetic peers to address health issues. Patients benefit from more regular evaluations and better access to specialty support. They participate in live or recorded education sessions—regardless of location or ability to travel. And with today’s move to ubiquitous video, you cannot only do one-to-one video sessions, but groups can meet over video to share ideas and best practices.
The basis for Legal Hold and Data Preservation Best Practices was the exceptional work by the group of presenters at the 2012 Conference on Preservation Excellence, held in Portland, Oregon in late September. The conference focused solely on the area of data preservation best practices.

Leading Cancer Center Implements Lean Service Desk to Provide Vital Support to Medical Staff
Learn how the IT team at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance built a brand new service desk from scratch in just five months. Key improvements include significant time savings via quick and easy workflow automation; faster issue resolution and response times due to real-time dashboards; and a new culture of continuous improvement surrounding the implementation of lean methodologies and ITSM best practices.
Throughout the twentieth century, the efficiency of real estate
portfolios was quantified primarily in terms of a building’s
cost per square foot and the average number of “usable square
feet” it provided for each person who worked in it. By these
measures, the workplace contributed to an organization’s
bottom line by (1) getting smaller and/or (2) fitting more
people into the same amount of space.
Meanwhile, mobile technologies and new economic and social
pressures ushered in new ways of working. By 2011, more
than 60 percent of large organizations worldwide had
implemented programs and practices that gave people more
choice about where, when, and how to do their jobs.2 But
although a few new workplace metrics (“collaborative seats per
person,” “desk-sharing ratios”) have emerged, the focus on
reducing direct costs (through allocating fewer square feet
to “assigned seats” in individual offices or workstations)

State agency and higher education CIOs are under intense pressure to modernize their legacy IT systems. Whether that requires moving from one infrastructure to another, or moving to or from the cloud, the chief challenge remains: How to migrate data and applications without disrupting critical operations, ensure improved performance and avoid pricing and other traps that often accompany virtualizing in the cloud.
Learn what’s made the difference in overcoming the impediments to workload migrations from IT leaders who’ve lived through big data and application moves. Topics include:
Preparing workloads for cloud on-boarding – and off-boarding
Tools for simplifying the consolidation and migration of apps and supporting services
Forecasting workloads, and planning for associated testing, training, and other costs
Software-defined architectures have transformed enterprises to become more application-centric. With application owners seeking public-cloud-like simplicity and flexibility in their own data centers, IT teams are under pressure to reduce wait times to provision applications.
Legacy load balancing solutions force network architects and administrators to purchase new hardware, manually configure virtual services, and inefficiently overprovision these appliances. Simultaneously, new infrastructure choices are also enabling applications to be re-architected into autonomous microservices
from monolithic or n-tier constructs. These transformations are forcing organizations to rethink load balancing strategies and application delivery controllers (ADCs) in their infrastructure.
This buyer’s guide for load balancers is based on research, best practices, and conversations with network administrators and IT operations teams at over 110 Global 2000 enterprises. It presents guidelines for choosing application services that mirror the needs of modern data centers and public cloud initiatives.
The guide is organized in sections, starting with a pre-assessment of your current application delivery capabilities. With data gathered from your pre-assessment, you can review the considerations involved in creating a software-defined application services strategy; identify opportunities to improve automation of application services and operations. Finally, use the software-defined application services checklist at the end of the guide to identify key priorities in your choice of application service solutions for your enterprise.
Financial institutions run on data: collecting it, analyzing it, delivering meaningful insights, and taking action in real time. As data volumes increase, organizations demand a scalable analytics platform that can meet the needs of data scientists and business users alike. However, managing an on-premises analytics environment for a large and diverse user base can become time-consuming, costly, and unwieldy.
Tableau Server on Amazon Web Services (AWS) is helping major Financial Services organizations shift data visualization and analytics workloads to the cloud. The result is fewer hours spent on manual work and more time to ask deeper questions and launch new data analyses, with easily-scalable support for large numbers of users. In this webinar, you’ll hear how one major asset management company made the shift to cloud data visualization with Tableau Server on AWS. Discover lessons learned, best practices tailored to Financial Services organizations, and starting tactics for scalable analytics on the cloud.
