Allows Healthcare Providers to Streamline Administrative and Clinical Processes, Delivering Better Patient Outcomes for Less Cost
27 January, 2016 – LONDON – Qinec, a digital health company focused on cloud based Care Pathway Management, today announces the launch of Release X. Features in this release include business and clinical analytics, a pathway focused workflow engine, and customisable patient communications schemes, all of which result in the creation and delivery of better quality care with improved outcomes at significantly lower cost.
Healthcare providers are struggling to connect their disparate siloed clinical and administrative IT systems into a unified and collaborative solution that addresses the full patient journey; the result is increased administrative time and less face-to-face time with patients. In a recent study from Accenture, 55 per cent of UK providers and 71 per cent of US providers said that healthcare IT has decreased time spent with patients.

For the past few years, we have heard a lot about the benefits of augmenting the Enterprise Data Warehouse with Hadoop. The Data Warehouse vendors as well as the Hadoop vendors are showcasing how Hadoop can handle unstructured data while the EDW will continue to remain as the central source in an enterprise.
The Enterprise Data Warehouse (EDW) is a standard component of a corporate data architecture because it provides valuable business insights and powerful decision analytics for front-line workers, executives, business analysts, data scientists, and software developers. The Enterprise Data Warehouse built using Teradata, Oracle, DB2 or other DBMS is undergoing a revolutionary change. As the sources of data become rich and diverse, storing them in a traditional EDW is not the optimal solution. Big data technologies such as Apache Hadoop excel at managing large volumes of unstructured data and are coming into mainstream use, by integrating with existing legacy Data Warehouse platforms to get the best of both worlds.

Over half of IT professionals report they’re worried their network will suffer a data breach at the hands of a careless celebration
London, UK, 16th December, 2015 – Dealing with potential data loss will be the number one headache confronting IT professionals in the run up to the 2015 holiday season. According to the third annual “Happy Holidays?” survey from Ipswitch*, over one-third of IT professionals in the UK (36%) confirm they have had an IT user report the loss of a device holding company data following holiday celebrations in a pub, restaurant, or at a party.
A further one-in-five (19%) go on to say they have had to manage the fallout that results from a user leaving their phone, tablet or laptop in the back of a taxi or on public transport during the holiday season.
In today’s digital world, many people have become more worried about the possibility of having government agencies track them. Considering the controversy surrounding the leak of NSA programs that target U.S. citizens, these worries are not without reason. With the explosion of big data technologies, it has become easier than ever for governments to keep track of what their citizens are doing. It’s all in the effort of protection, at least in most circumstances, but it does have the feeling of violating personal privacy. But what if the citizenry were able to turn the tables on this type of tracking and instead use big data to keep a closer eye on the government? This idea is starting to gain hold among many organizations intent on keeping government institutions as free as possible from corruption. In a sense, this new movement is keen on watching the watchers.
LONDON — December 2015. A survey commissioned by Hitachi Solutions Europe has recently revealed that 31 percent of organizations have moved all or part of their Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems to the Cloud, or are in the process of doing so. The survey questioned 315 senior finance professionals with the aim of understanding their position and perceptions around ERP in the Cloud.
At this time 69 percent of respondents have not moved their ERP systems to the Cloud, but 44 percent said they would consider moving to the Cloud in the future. Of that 44 percent, two thirds (67 percent) said they would contemplate moving in the next two years.
Looking at the responses from larger organizations (those with over 500 employees) suggests that it is no longer just smaller organizations taking a Cloud-based approach to ERP. In fact, 27 percent of larger organizations surveyed said they have moved all or part of their ERP to the Cloud, or are in the process.
