Make smarter IT Decisions - Webinar, Online

Industry analysts forecast that around 85% of enterprises will move their IT operations to a hybrid Cloud model by 2020. To efficiently integrate the hybrid Cloud requires deep insight into what applications, networks, and storage you are running. Join the experts as they discuss how to deliver true end-to-end insights and control across both your on-premises, and Cloud environments.

Find out how to make smarter business and IT decisions to address some of these common challenges:

  • Having to request extra budget, but finding it difficult to cost-justify exactly why?
  • Lack of visibility as to which department is consuming the most IT resources and costs?
  • Finding that your public Cloud costs can very easily spiral out of control?
  • Need to determine which applications can, and cannot be moved to the Cloud?
  • Using many vendors for different requirements and wish you could see everything from one screen?

HiMSS/SHIEC Interoperability & HIE Symposium, Las Vegas, Nevada, USA

Patients' lives, the health and security of our nation's citizens, and the health of the US economy are - in part - reliant on ensuring the right people have the right access to the right health information at the right time. While we have made great strides over the past generation, seamless, secure, nationwide interoperable health information exchange continues to elude us. Although there have been major investments and policies designed to drive standards development, interoperability, and health information exchange, significant barriers and challenges exist.

Explore how points of leverage in technology and policy can be used to exploit market-based solutions to this dilemma. A particular focus is current solutions to the requirements of serving complex patients in the context of population health management and new reimbursement models. Because semantic interoperability is not the norm, challenge today's proven solutions and frameworks, and explore cutting-edge ideas in interoperability that will transform the exchange of health information. Is the future of health care destined to be incremental or will innovation and economics drive a great leap forward? Take a closer look at the interaction of technologies with policies, payment reform, emerging standards, and use cases that are furthering our progress toward true health care transformation in an interoperable world.

Then the organizers will take a look at what we can do with it while itÕs there; direct retrieval, query search, and updates in situ.

Then the organizers will turn it up a notch, showing how the grid can scale, and self-heal should an part of the grid be taken offline, providing a resilient service. As a closing point, they will show Go inter-operating with data from other clients, so the Go client can be a service or micro-service as part of a wider architecture.

Cloud computing is being adopted in one form or another by 94% of enterprises today. Tens of billions of new devices are being connected to The Internet of Things. Big Data is driving this bus. An exponential increase is expected in the amount of information being processed, managed, analyzed, and acted upon by enterprise IT. This amazing is not part of some distant future - it is happening today. One report shows a 650% increase in enterprise data by 2020. Other estimates are even higher. Big Data at Cloud Expo is the place where you can see the technologies and use cases that are delivering Big Data to enterprise IT.

Platform for Advanced Scientific Computing Conference - PASC18, Basel, Switzerland

PASC18 is the fifth edition of the PASC Conference series, an international platform for the exchange of competences in scientific computing and computational science, with a strong focus on methods, tools, algorithms, application challenges, and novel techniques and usage of high performance computing.

The theme of PASC18 is "Fast and Big Data, Fast and Big Computation", emphasizing the vision of the close coupling of data and computation. Exposing and expressing massive and irregular parallelism in computational problems are key challenges for exploiting the massive and heterogeneous parallelism available in current, and expected in future, HPC systems, as well as to find new ways of generating scientific insight from data and models. Through its rich and interactive programme, PASC18 aims to highlight the computational approaches that computational scientists, computer scientists, and practitioners employ today and will employ over the next decades to address these challenges.
