The central theme of industry wide adoption of EHRs is based on the concept of “meaningful use,” which by design is a metric that will connect all the moving parts of this complicated initiative into a system that communicates and delivers high-grade electronic healthcare services. To qualify as a “meaningful user,” eligible providers must demonstrate use of a “qualified EHR” in a “meaningful manner.” It is a lofty and worthwhile goal. This white paper examines the total cost of ownership for “meaningful” EHR adoption in a physician practice.

In real estate, the most important factor is location, location, location! Your services are not quite as sensitive to the physical position of your technology, but location certainly can be a pivotal factor in optimizing your service design and service delivery. Ideally, location shouldn’t matter; however, it does
have an e?ect on customer experience. When technology services were simpler, location was largely irrelevant, but now the complexity of new services demands a strategy more in line with your BT agenda than your former IT agenda. The e?ects of regulatory, cost, risk, and performance factors will vary based
on the physical location of your technology resources. Colocation providers, cloud service providers, and even traditional hosting services o?er plenty of evolving options to help infrastructure and operations (I&O) professionals balance these factors to optimize service design and delivery.

With a couple of swipes, a like and a share, what’s in today is gone tomorrow. Graphic design trends are changing rapidly, based on a fastspreading global pop culture that determines what’s hot, and what’s not, almost instantly.
In such a connected world, keeping pace with the right look and feel is essential. While a picture was once worth a thousand words, it’s now worth much more. If you don’t want your audience to bounce, basic is not enough.
By creating unique printed and digital assets that engage consumers and drive social media posts (and a whole lot of likes and shares), brands can leverage the “Instagram effect” to attract customers. Start with these trends, and keep reinventing!

• Program control with real-time, up-to-date, detailed and verifiable information while preserving program and partner IP
In today’s application economy, interaction between a business and
its customers, partners and employees is increasingly through apps.
And omni-channel access to these applications—from anywhere at
any time—is dependent on APIs. These APIs provide an interface for
developers to code against, and must be robust enough to support
As a result, APIs are perhaps the most critical technology in digital
business design today. APIs sit between your application clients
—apps, websites and devices—and application backends. By
leveraging APIs, you can securely stretch the boundaries of your
enterprise by tapping into a broad array of digital businesses, digital
customers and digital devices.
But just as important as the API, is the application backend itself.
Behind the API, the data access layer and application logic layer are
doing the heavy lifting—implementing business rules, maintaining
data consistency and managing interactions with various data
sources. These three com

Many organizations transitioning from on-premises Microsoft applications to Office 365 will experience performance problems due to geographic factors and use of the Internet for connectivity. IT can minimize performance issues and deliver an acceptable experience to end users by paying careful attention to network design.
Application delivery services are critical for successful applications. Whether such services add scalability, reliability, or security, most applications rely on one or more. Application Delivery Controllers (ADCs), therefore, occupy a critical place in most application, cloud, and data center designs.
But what does "performance" actually mean? In general, ADC vendors publish four main types of metrics to demonstrate performance:
Requests per second (RPS) Connections per second (CPS) Transactions per second (TPS) Throughput (often measured in gigabits per second, Gbps)

HRIS solutions designed for very large organizations can be costly to set up and maintain, and often require the services of an army of consultants to keep them operational. Systems designed for very small organizations concentrate on either HR functions such as attendance and compensation, or on benefits management, but usually lack the ability to integrate the two areas. To be a practical investment choice for a mid-tier organization, a satisfactory HRIS solution must have its HR and benefits functions highly integrated. It must be agile so it can easily be kept aligned with the constant change in compliance laws, and it must be robust and secure, built on a tried and true platform foundation.
The purpose of this design guide is to present the requirements and considerations relevant to the transportation vertical along with design options, best practices and configuration guidelines. While this design guide is focused on Shortest Path Bridging (SPB-M) based networks, it also addresses data networking solutions applicable for this transportation vertical.
Although several modes of transport exist, this document focuses on rail (metro, heavy, light) and road transport. More specifically, this document focuses on the fixed network infrastructure underpinning the multiple systems that enable the safe and reliable operation of rail and intelligent transport systems.

Most large enterprises have launched an initiative to adopt service-oriented architecture (SOA), but SOA is not a solution that comes in a tidy little box. SOA is a new way to design systems, and it is more about culture than it is about technology. SOA will impact many aspects of an organization—from software development and operations to accounting and incentive systems. Governance is critical.
