Hospital communications used to be a lot simpler. If you needed to find a doctor, you could dial 0 and the operators would connect you or send a page on your behalf. People communicated through paper charts, wrote key phone numbers on grease boards, and kept on-call schedules in binders. Some of this still happens today, but communications across healthcare have become progressively more convoluted. The use of diverse mobile devices (smartphones, tablets, pagers, Wi-Fi phones, etc.), and the rise in care complexity necessitating care team coordination mean more sophisticated communication technology is required.
Can hospital staff use personal devices for work-related communications? Spok surveyed 450+ healthcare organizations to assess the current landscape. Results show a lot of variation and may surprise you.

Mainframes continue to provide high business value by combining efficient transaction processing with high-volume access to critical enterprise data. Business organizations are linking mobile devices to mainframe processing and data to support digital applications and drive business transformation. In this rapidly growing scenario, the importance of providing excellent end-user experience becomes critical for business success.This analyst announcement note covers how CA Technologies is addressing the need for providing high availability and a fast response time by optimizing mainframe performance with new machine learning and analytics capabilities.
In our increasingly connected world, quality, reliability and
consistency matter a great deal, particularly in the context of the
smart home ecosystem. The antennas, connectors, relays,
sensors, switches, terminals and tubing inside these devices
play critical roles in the product’s ultimate functionality. If you
don’t focus on the right components or choose the wrong or
incompatible ones, then device reliability becomes an issue.
Traditional organizations across the globe are transforming to compete against digital-only players, in restructuring to put the customer first. The world’s buying behavior - and people’s behavior in relation to technology - is quickly changing in connection with online distribution channels, smart devices, and their interplay with offline touchpoints. Siloed business systems and their old reporting lines need to shift, and synchronize - fast.

The hallmark of the digital age is change – constant, rapid, and often disruptive. The computer itself has changed from mainframe to minicomputers, personal desktops to laptops, handheld devices to mobile computers. We now have tiny embedded computers in cars, in washing machines and even in cats and dogs. How we live our lives has changed. Virtually every activity humans engage in, is impacted by computers and that’s constantly changing too. No surprise then, that K-12 education was also impacted by the constant transformation of computers.

Backup alone is not enough anymore. Businesses today must put a range of recoverability options in place. That’s why it is encouraging to see Carbonite, a data protection company with cloud and hybrid offerings, making fresh moves to help organizations evolve beyond legacy backup. Years ago, Carbonite pioneered cloud backup for endpoint devices. Then it expanded, buying EVault in 2015 and DoubleTake in 2017. Just as Carbonite has long been at the forefront of offering what people need from cloud-based data backup, it now appears to be just as intent on providing what IT organizations need—hybrid data protection media and mechanisms.

This paper covers some of the critical security gaps today’s mobile-cloud enterprises must address:
• Unsecured devices. Unsecured devices allow users to easily access business data from mobile apps or cloud services simply by entering their credentials into an app or browser on the device. Once on the device, data can be easily compromised or shared with unauthorized, external sources.
• Unmanaged apps. These typically include business apps, such as Office 365 productivity apps, that the user has downloaded from a personal app store instead of the enterprise app store. As a result, these apps are not under IT control but can still be used to access business content once the user enters his or her credentials.
• Unsanctioned cloud services. Most enterprise cloud services have associated ecosystems of apps and services that integrate using APIs. While the enterprise cloud service might be sanctioned, apps and services from its ecosystem might not be.
