As the Northwest Ohio area’s only academic medical center, the University of Toledo Medical Center (UTMC) delivers high-level physician education, while managing a 233-bed hospital for patients as well as 34 specialty clinics. This broad, complex level of responsibility needs a comprehensive, robust interoperability system to connect its different EHR systems so residents, physicians, and technicians can access data whenever, wherever they are.
With more than a half-dozen disparate systems, UTMC needs a reliable, robust system to tie everyone together so providers have critical access to patient data from the classroom to the operating theatre.
Read this case study to learn how the Mirth® solution has delivered to all of these requirements and enabled University of Toledo.
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.
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.
For today’s service providers and enterprises, bandwidth demands continue to increase and evolve. The introduction of Internet of Things (IoT) solutions, such as smart homes, smart cities, connected cars, and connected medical devices, is forcing organizations to change existing business models and to build more cost-effective networks.

Marketing automation is a technology solution that helps enable the seeding, creation, nurturing and acceleration of demand among prospects and customers (see the brief “Marketing Automation Platforms Defined”). Given that marketing automation platforms (MAPs) are an essential component of every b-to-b organization’s marketing infrastructure, organizations understand the need for these platforms, as well as their internal need for optimized processes and skills to leverage them.
However, while most b-to-b marketers understand the value of lead nurturing, lead scoring/prioritization, program and tactic level reporting, and the SiriusDecisions Demand Waterfall®, they often struggle to operationalize these processes with MAPs, which is why selecting the right MAP is imperative. In this SiriusView, we describe MAP providers’ differences to help organizations identify which MAPs best meet their needs.
The network functions virtualization (NFV) revolution – where software-based services running in virtualized environments on Intel® architecture servers replace purpose built appliances – has taken communications service providers by storm.
Many system integrators, software vendors, and platform providers rely on Intel® technologies to deliver the performance and scalability required for vE-CPE solutions. Using vE-CPE solutions based on Intel technologies, service providers can offer a full range of services without having to use multiple purpose-built systems.

There are myriad software products, from complete CRM platforms that offer analytics to standalone or add-on software products that focus solely on analytics. There are analytics apps that can be added to your existing CRM platform. Or there’s the option to outsource analytics to a growing number of service providers.
“The technologies are changing rapidly. There are a zillion startups offering either new tools or technologies, so it is kind of hard to navigate,”Mike Gualtieri, an analystfor Forrester Research Inc. in Cambridge, Mass., said in a recent webcast on analytics. “There isn’t just one platform that you’re going to need.
There’s a whole ecosystem of platforms.”
Having the right people on staff who know how to use the technology is equally important, analysts say. Analytics aren’t just for statisticians anymore—they’re used by sales, marketing and customer service teams in daily decision making.
At Viavi Solutions® we’ve had the benefit of observing a number of hybrid cloud deployments up close. All sectors of IT users from small to large enterprises, governmental groups, and even cloud service providers (CSPs) who themselves have begun to offer managed cloud services from third-party platforms—touch the hybrid cloud environment. CIOs, especially, face new challenges in deploying or expanding their enterprise presence in the cloud.
This white paper examines four critical areas—migration, security, costs, and visibility—where CIOs can make major differences in the successful execution of hybrid cloud strategies. We’ve listed 20 fundamental questions CIOs can discuss with both their internal deployment groups and their external CSP/system integrator in preparation for a migration to or an expansion of hybrid cloud services.
