Few industries have seen as much change in recent years as the healthcare sector. Sweeping legislation, a new incentive structure, a raft of regulations, and an emphasis on wellness rather than mere “sick care” have altered the clinical and administrative landscapes. Oracle is helping healthcare organizations deliver great patient experiences with a cloud-based strategy that uses innovative technology to meet the needs of everybody involved in the continuum of care.
Digital healthcare is not an unattainable mirage, but is alive and well in the United States and throughout the world. The goal of digital healthcare is to use technology to efficiently manage and deliver better healthcare—providing greater value and more positive outcomes to patients at a lower cost. The cloud provides the fastest, most efficient, and most economical way to reach that goal.
Ideally, cloud technology makes the delivery of healthcare fast, flexible, and easier for everyone to use—no matter whether you’re ordering supplies, hiring an employee, or reviewing your budget. However, actual results depend on how you implement the technology and on the vendor you choose as your provider. Every healthcare organization—payers and providers—will have a different path that leads them to digital healthcare. The question is, are you there yet?
The rise of digital in the marketing mix has brought a whirlwind of change to the agency space, from work being brought in house to competition from consultancies and service providers. What an agency looks like in just five years is going to be tremendously different from the traditional model we know today.
While IMS is not new, complete virtualization of IMS (vIMS) is new. Network functions virtualization (NFV) provides operators with the ability to rapidly and inexpensively deploy, configure, launch, and upgrade services, which can lead to faster time to market and lower operating costs, providing an important competitive advantage against traditional CSPs and new OTT service providers. It can also reduce the business risk associated with new service introductions. This agility allows operators to offer trials of new service offerings on a much larger scale, leading to acceleration of new revenue generation.
Using the IP Multimedia System (IMS) architecture, Communications Service Providers (CSPs) can offer session-based services. Any Internet Protocol/Session Internet Protocol (IP/SIP) device can establish a session with the control servers’ Call Session Control Function (CSCF) and then establish connections with other IP/ SIP devices to deliver voice, video, and data sessions between the two end-clients.
As organizations go through major business and technology changes, they will increasingly depend on digital platforms to deliver products and services. More than half of the organizations we spoke with said they would increase spending with their primary hosting and cloud service provider (CSP) in 2017, and individual quarterly plans for hosting and cloud services suggest that the growth in spending will be persistent.
Worldwide spending on public cloud services is set to reach USD 122.5 billion in 2017, an increase of 24.4 percent over 20161. In fact, the compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of spending on public cloud services is almost seven times that of overall IT spending growth and IDC predicts that by 2020, it will top USD 203.4 billion worldwide2. The size of the opportunity for cloud service providers (CSPs) is huge but fierce competition, accelerating innovation and the need to keep prices low continue to create enormous pressure.
This paper outlines some of the primary challenges faced by CSPs in making and keeping their business profitable and suggests strategies and innovations that can help cloud businesses to take a greater share of the market opportunity.
5G will be a transformative force, offering enhanced mobile broadband and enabling a huge volume of machine to machine communications, based on its ultra-reliable, and low latency network. For comms service providers it puts them in a strong position to offer new services, including in the Internet of Things (IoT), visual computing, analytics, and enhanced mobility.
Communications service providers are looking for alternative deployment models that will help them support fast-growing network demand. Moving to a virtualized EPC (vEPC) solution can help service providers achieve more cost-e?ective scaling by using standard high-volume servers in place of purpose-built systems. System integrators, software vendors, and platform providers rely on Intel® technologies to deliver the performance and scalability required for vEPC solutions. Intel is also participating in the development of open standards, contributing to the open source community, developing reference architectures, engaging with industry participants, and collaborating on trials that can help facilitate the evolution to vEPC solutions and accelerate network transformation by use of network functions virtualization.
Virtualizing the IMS will bolster competitiveness for communications service providers. This Intel solution brief details how vIMS and NFV provides operators the ability to rapidly and inexpensively deploy, configure, launch, and upgrade services and provide a competitive advantage and accelerating new revenue generation.

FRONTEO provides end-to-end project management, litigation consulting and eDiscovery solutions for a global base of law firms and corporations. To meet customers’ time-critical information needs, Chief Operating Officer David Wilner, requires connectivity and data center solutions that can handle hundreds of terabytes of data—reliably and at top speeds.
That’s why, by 2013, Wilner could no longer tolerate the reliability issues he was having with the company’s previous network provider. In search of a better partner, Wilner’s team chose Spectrum Enterprise. Unlike other providers who, Wilner felt, take little accountability for network reliability, he appreciated that— same as FRONTEO itself—Spectrum Enterprise offered a true end-to-end solution.
The shift to value-based care means that healthcare organizations should expand their concept of return on investment (ROI) to include the ability of solutions to increase efficiency and contain healthcare costs. Data analytics and automation capabilities have become important tools for providers aiming to maximize value-based payments. Learn from this whitepaper about the best ways for healthcare organizations to measure health IT ROI in the value-based environment, including specific examples of how certain providers are approaching this challenge.

Every financial services firm understands the importance of data. More is better. Sooner is better. Accessing it, understanding it, and taking advantage of it before the competition is better.
In the mid-2000s, Financial Services was the first industry to strongly adopt data virtualization as a disruptive, new technology for accessing and integrating more data, faster and more easily than ever before.
Buy and sell side groups at the largest institutions led the charge, followed soon after by risk management and compliance units. The leading mutual fund providers, along with hedge funds, led the next wave of adoption. In recent years, commercial banks and insurers have accelerated their use of data virtualization. And today, analyst firms such as Gartner, Inc. and Forrester project continued data virtualization adoption for both first-time use at new firms and expanded deployments at existing sites.
