The need for analytic tools to make sense of disparate data sources will certainly be expanding in the upcoming years. This report highlights what analytical data healthcare leaders are currently focusing on, as well as the challenges they expect to face when using analytics to support their organizations in the future.
Healthcare organizations are allocating significant dollars, time and resources to the implementation of electronic health records (EHRs). While several studies have estimated the cost to purchase and install an EHR to be anywhere between $15,000 to $70,000 per provider1, real-world implementations have soared into the billions.
Even as the move to electronic health records (EHR) progresses in earnest, there are a myriad of challenges involving legacy data systems. Chief among these challenges is the cost of maintaining obsolete systems solely for the patient information they contain. When up to 70% of a typical IT budget is spent on maintaining the current IT infrastructure and application portfolio, organizations have little left to invest in much-needed innovation. According to a recent HealthLeaders Media Survey, many organizations are still adjusting after their migration to a new EHR system. Hospitals need to get a better grasp on all forms and sources of data that they have—and the data they don’t yet have—so that the right information can be delivered to the right individual, and in the right context, at the point of care.
Electronic health record (EHR) system implementation is one of the largest IT investments most healthcare systems have ever made but it’s success is largely dependent upon the data which feeds it. One the main data sources for the EHR is the item master, which drives not only supply chain processes but also a broad range of clinical and financial functions. Only with a clean, accurate and complete item master can a healthcare organization trust the outputs generated from its EHRs – from evaluating the clinical effectiveness of products to securing reimbursements. Learn how to execute a master data management strategy to derive the greatest value from your EHR investment.

Bon nombre de propriétaires de PME pensent que cela n’arrive qu’aux autres et que leur entreprise est trop petite pour être la cible de piratages, d’attaques par rançongiciel et d’autres types de cybercriminalité. D’autres sont conscients de l’importance de la cybersécurité, mais estiment qu’ils n’ont pas les ressources nécessaires pour en faire une priorité. Ce sont là quelques-unes des raisons pour lesquelles pas moins de 90 % des PME n’ont pas établi de système de protection pour leurs données ou celles de leurs clients.

The more holistic view of risk a property underwriter can get, the better decisions they are likely to make. In order to build up a detailed picture of risk at an individual location, underwriters or agents at coverholders have, until now, had to request exposure analytics on single risks from their portfolio managers and brokers. Also, they had to gather supplementary risk data from a range of external resources, whether it is from Catastrophe Risk Evaluation and Standardizing Target Accumulations (CRESTA) zones to look-ups on Google Maps.

The IT pendulum is swinging to distributed computing environments, network perimeters are dissolving, and
compute is being distributed across various parts of organizations’ infrastructure—including, at times, their extended
ecosystem. As a result, organizations need to ensure the appropriate levels of visibility and security at these remote
locations, without dramatically increasing staff or tools. They need to invest in solutions that can scale to provide
increased coverage and visibility, but that also ensure efficient use of resources. By implementing a common
distributed data services layer as part of a comprehensive security operations and analytics platform architecture
(SOAPA) and network operations architecture, organizations can reduce costs, mitigate risks, and improve operational
"Malicious cryptomining has consistently been one of the top threats across all internet activity in 2018. Cryptominers tap into an organization’s computing power to create cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Monero — and generate profit for themselves. If you’re not protected, it can cost you in all kinds of ways. It can lead to degraded system performance and regulatory risks, and leaves an attacker with an open door to further exploit your network.
In this eBook you’ll learn about who these criminals are targeting and how you can protect your network from a significant threat.
"Malicious cryptomining lets cybercriminals profit at your organization’s expense. No industry is safe from malicious cryptomining - a browser or software-based threat that enables attackers to secretly use an organization's computing power to mine digital currency. This fast-growing threat can lead to degraded system performance, soaring electricity usage, regulatory problems, and vulnerability to future attacks.

The current trend in manufacturing is towards tailor-made products in smaller lots with shorter delivery times. This change may lead to frequent production modifications resulting in increased machine downtime, higher production cost, product waste—and the need to rework faulty products.
To satisfy the customer demand behind this trend, manufacturers must move quickly to new production models. Quality assurance is the key area that IT must support.
At the same time, the traceability of products becomes central to compliance as well as quality. Traceability can be achieved by interconnecting data sources across the factory, analyzing historical and streaming data for insights, and taking immediate action to control the entire end-to-end process. Doing so can lead to noticeable cost reductions, and gains in efficiency, process reliability, and speed of new product delivery. Additionally, analytics helps manufacturers find the best setups for machinery.
We’re in one of the longest-running positive M&A cycles in recent history. Even as global economic headwinds develop, corporate and private equity investors continue to experience unparalleled access to capital for potential deals. This suggests that the current wave of US industry consolidations and aggressive private equity investing will continue into the foreseeable future, even as deal volume has slowed from recent peaks.
At the same time, with increasing valuations for companies, expectations on sellers are more rigorous, even punishing on surprises. Proactive preparation has become mandatory; processes are more accelerated and data-driven, quality of earnings analysis and sell-side due diligence have become table stakes. Sellers have to respond appropriately and with confidence as experienced buyers move toward a close.
Selling your company takes robust planning and discipline. Whether you are divesting the business completely or bringing in a private equity investor to fuel additional growth, the process you develop and follow will play a critical role in creating value for your shareholders and family.
Everyone has a lot more data than even five years ago to value your business, including benchmarks and operational data sources. The one piece of information the market doesn’t have is your story: what you’ve done and what the business can do next, setting up a clear and credible case for terms you can justify.
The glue that holds it together is that you are clear about buyers’ expectations, understand your company’s value and can evaluate and explain the prospects for your business. Above all, you need to have worked through what you want to accomplish for yourself and your stakeholders with a prospective transaction. To a large extent, this will determine the right exit strategy for you.
Many entrepreneurs today are motivated by more outcomes than retirement or a simple wealth event. You may want to consider taking a “second bite at the apple.” This typically involves structuring an exit that divests a controlling stake but creates a continued role to grow the return on the remaining stake.
Whatever path you may be considering, we hope this guide serves as a useful starting point for the conversations you will have with your stakeholders, trusted employees and family, as well as your advisers as you realize the value you’ve worked hard to create.
