Creating competitive advantage starts with a sound digital strategy. In a 2017 survey of healthcare consumers across the U.S. from a representative range of demographic groups, we found that 88% of consumers begin their search for healthcare providers online. Consumers rely on search engines and review sites to steer their decisions about where to go for care. What consumers read about you online heavily influences their decision-making. Your reputation is defined at every touchpoint a potential patient has with your doctors and organization on the web — from the doctor or location listing, to patient rating and reviews, to finding the right doctor and reading profiles on your website. Done well, online reputation management (ORM) enables your providers to generate a high volume of representative reviews from the “silent majority,” while providing valuable insights to improve patient experience, make operational improvements and drive new patient appointments.

Challenge Enterprises today face the major challenge of how to fully orchestrate the apps that define their business and automate the IT processes underpinning them when much of the infrastructure used to run them is outsourced to cloud providers. Opportunity Some cloud service providers offer their own orchestration tools, and each on-premises tool has automation capabilities. But while we own our apps, providers are interchangeable depending on what they can offer and for what price. We should be able to switch between cloud providers and between cloud, on-premises and hybrid infrastructure as and when the business requires, with minimal effort and without losing any control. Sometimes we might want to use more than one provider at the same time, leveraging the advantages of each provider simultaneously. Benefits What is needed is an orchestration layer that remains constant while cloud services come and go; one that enterprises own along with their core apps.

Data and analytics have become an indispensable part of gaining and keeping a competitive edge. But many legacy data warehouses introduce a new challenge for organizations trying to manage large data sets: only a fraction of their data is ever made available for analysis. We call this the “dark data” problem: companies know there is value in the data they collected, but their existing data warehouse is too complex, too slow, and just too expensive to use. A modern data warehouse is designed to support rapid data growth and interactive analytics over a variety of relational, non-relational, and streaming data types leveraging a single, easy-to-use interface. It provides a common architectural platform for leveraging new big data technologies to existing data warehouse methods, thereby enabling organizations to derive deeper business insights. Key elements of a modern data warehouse: • Data ingestion: take advantage of relational, non-relational, and streaming data sources • Federated q

This paper introduces a brief explanation of digital continuity and the opportunities and threats that it faces. The movement of product information to the digital domain in the 21st century has meant that we do not have physical items, like pieces of paper, which we can authenticate as being reliable information for decision making. Digital continuity is meant to remedy shortcomings of the digital environment by ensuring that information is unique, authoritative, current, and consistent, or more simply, has the characteristic of singularity. This paper includes: • Digital continuity within the Product Lifecycle • Digital continuity within manufacturing • Threats to digital continuity If we implement digital continuity correctly, we have all the advantages of the singularity of paper documents, but with the instantaneous and simultaneous ability to access the latest, updated information.
