Leading organizations don’t think of data protection in traditional back-office terms—and that’s no accident. They think and act like service providers, and in doing so transform data protection operations from mere cost centers to business enablers. Traditional data protection architectures can’t meet today’s challenges of massive growth, application performance, and data availability. And they aren't designed for services-oriented business models.

Information is becoming the currency of the 21st century, and organizations of all sizes are creating more information than ever
before. Frequently, organizations struggle with how best to balance storage requirements with available budgets. The benefits of greater storage capacity are clear: better change management and roll-back, easier archival and discovery, reliable backup and
recovery. But to continually grow on-site capacity requires unsustainable investment and introduces unnecessary risk. Prominent cloud service providers present an appealing alternative with their vast amounts of storage, offering low cost, high availability, and built-in redundancy. Riverbed’s Whitewater® family of cloud storage gateways is a drop-in replacement for existing tape- and diskbased backup targets, cuts backup costs 30-50% compared to tape and disk, and provides effective DR capability with minimal effort.

Consumers anoint—and abandon—providers with breathtaking speed, causing seismic shifts in the market. This new era of consumers is also increasingly difficult to define, no longer neatly fitting into traditional marketing segments. With the rise of emerging markets and micro-segments, manufacturing is confronting the challenge of mass customization.
The question is not if or when but how: Customers are demanding variety, and manufacturing companies must deliver.
What’s key to making this work? Big data visibility, flexible processes, and an agile ecosystem that can move swiftly to serve an increasingly fragmenting, but exceptionally demanding consumer base.

Barcode technologies provide a “virtual voice” to patients, applications and workflows. Barcoding accomplishes this by laying a solid foundation for enhancing patient identification, providing visibility into medical practices, and driving efficiencies throughout healthcare applications, and is an integral part of electronic medical record (EMR) adoption.

Data sharing is the first priority in web conferencing.
Web conferencing doesn't work well for day-to-day collaboration. Everything is a scheduled, “meet-me” conference. You can’t just call someone.
Web conferencing providers don’t offer a complete solution. You have to separately manage and integrate video systems and instant messaging through independent platforms that do not integrate into the web conferencing service, resulting in an inferior and disjointed user experience.

A recent KLAS publication reported more than a third of ambulatory practices (ranging from small to large) will replace their current EMR system. Why? Poor functionality, sun-setting products, and concerns about the corporate viability drive replacement needs. KLAS notes that while providers are still evaluating niche EMR products, many organizations are seeking the stability of established vendors. With Health Information Technology, especially EMR, moving from “nice to have to need to have,” selecting the right EMR has become a mission critical business driver.
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.
