Users of Europe’s leading learning content management system (LCMS) met in London recently to discuss the latest developments and plans for the system and its related suite of products.
This latest in a series of regular User Group conferences, held at venues throughout Europe, began with Fabrizio Giorgini, head of R&D at Italy-based eXact learning solutions, explaining the developments in the eXact learning suite of products over the past year and then outlining eXact learning solutions’ plans for its products over the next year.
The User Group conference included presentations from eXact learning suite clients The British Council; the telecoms company, Telefónica UK; eLfH, which is part of NHS Health Education England, and the Ireland-based learning materials provider, Intuition.
In particular, Rich Brook and Asi DeGani, of Telefonica, outlined a project in which they were given just two and half weeks to produce a major online learning programme.

The annual survey of the top 500 Independent Software Vendors (ISVs) in Europe shows some major changes due to substantial growth in some areas, consolidation and changing market conditions. After a slow rise of 5% in the previous year, it looks like ISV fortunes have turned around strongly in 2015, based on early figures. The latest database report by IT Europa, ISVs in Europe - the top 500, published today shows a shake-up at the top of the list of individual companies, with three newcomers to the top ten. There has also been a big jump in those reporting that they offer Software-as-a-Service (SaaS). In 2016, nearly 90% of ISVs said they offer SaaS, an increase of over 60% from 2014. But it is not all packages and cloud; bespoke software development is also on the rise with just under 60% offering it.
LONDON, UK. – February 4, 2016 – Given the increase in threats and vulnerabilities introduced to the market on a daily basis, the process of moving company data securely is critical to the role of IT teams. Today, Ipswitch announced the findings of their new survey that evaluated the current file transfer solutions and policies in place for 555 IT professionals across the globe. The survey found that while IT teams believe secure file transfers are very important to their organizations, they lack the necessary tools to do so.
Key findings included:
While 76 percent of IT professionals said that being able to securely transfer and share files internally and externally is very important, 61 percent said that unsecure cloud-file sharing services like Dropbox are being used within their organizations.
32 percent of IT professionals said that they do not have a file transfer policy in place, but 25 percent plan to integrate one. A quarter (25 percent) of IT professionals said that their organizations have file transfer technology policies in place but indicated that enforcement is inconsistent.
21 percent of IT professionals said they may have experienced a data breach or suffered data loss but are not sure. More than a third (38 percent) of IT professionals said their processes to identify and mitigate file transfer risk are not efficient.
Less than half (46 percent) of IT professional respondents said that they have a Managed File Transfer (MFT) solution in place.

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.
