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.

Most organizations have invested, and continue to invest, in people, processes, technology, and policies to meet customer privacy requirements and avoid significant fines and other penalties. In addition, data breaches continue to expose the personal information of millions of people, and organizations are concerned about the products they buy, services they use, people they employ, and with whom they partner and do business with generally. As a result, customers are asking more questions during the buying cycle about how their data is captured, used, transferred, shared, stored, and destroyed. In last year’s study (Cisco 2018 Privacy Maturity Benchmark Study), Cisco introduced data and insights regarding how these privacy concerns were negatively impacting the buying cycle and timelines. This year’s research updates those findings and explores the benefits associated with privacy investment.

Investment casting is a precise manufacturing methodology that delivers value across industries, from mechanical, automotive and aerospace parts to intricate dental work, jewelry and sculpture. For centuries the trade-off for smooth and accurate investment casted parts has been high costs and long casting pattern lead times.
Now the evolution of parts is accelerating dramatically in many industries resulting in shorter product life cycles and lower volumes of casted parts between cycles. Waiting for tooling for obsolete parts for aging aircraft also mean delays for aircraft to be repaired, costing time and money. Demand for faster foundry production is increasing in all industries and foundries need to be ready to respond.

Application modernization is a powerful method for extending the life and improving the business value of a company's critical application assets. It provides an attractive and cost effective alternative to application development, enabling companies to defer investment in replacement initiatives without compromising business support.
Why your data catalog won’t deliver significant ROI
According to Gartner, organizations that provide access to a curated catalog of internal and external data assets will derive twice as much business value from their analytics investments by 2020 than those that do not.
That’s a ringing endorsement of data catalogs, and a growing number of enterprises seem to agree. In fact, the global data catalog market is expected to grow from US$210.0 million in 2017 to US$620.0 million by 2022, at a Compound Annual Growth Rate (CAGR) of 24.2%.
Why such large and intensifying demand for data catalogs? The primary driver is that many organizations are working to modernize their data platforms with data lakes, cloud-based data warehouses, advanced analytics and various SaaS applications in order to grow profitable digital initiatives. To support these digital initiatives and other business imperatives, organizations need more reliable, faster access to their data.
However, modernizing data plat

Digital transformation is top of mind for CIOs and business leaders for clear and practical reasons. It offers an opportunity to create new revenue streams and meet changing customer demands, as well as a way to address the rise of digital insurgents trying to hijack core markets.
What’s needed is a common resource that both IT and business managers intrinsically value, one that can guide decisions about new business initiatives and related technology investments. That rallying point is enterprise data. Because incumbents possess richer reserves of business information, they wield a competitive advantage that even the most disruptive insurgents can’t claim. The key is for established companies to unlock the full potential of this important resource to fuel business transformation and help to maintain their leadership positions in volatile and quickly evolving markets.
