6th Annual ‘OneMedForum’ Announces Special Programming

OneMedPlace today announced panel presentations for the 6th Annual OneMedForum, on January 7-9, 2013, at the Sir Francis Drake Hotel in San Francisco.

“We’ve identified a number of timely themes that address the rapidly changing financial environment and ideas on how to build companies in a capital constrained market,” said Brett Johnson, CEO of OneMedPlace, the organizer of the Forum. “These sessions will be invaluable to any investor or entrepreneur looking to build and finance a growth company.”

The Panels will include:

  • Changes to Reg D General Solicitation: The Dramatic Catalyst of the JOBS Act. Will this landmark legislation open vast sources of private investment capital previously not available?
  • Connected Health: Technology in the Hands of Patients Changes Health Delivery—A Brave New World of Medicine. With smartphones and new diagnostic tools, the day when every patient has a computer chip implanted and feeding data to his/her provider (and payor) is not far off. Better-connected patients with access to more efficient treatment will completely disrupt the healthcare complex.
  • Diagnostics: Genome Sequencing, Biomarkers, and the Death of Reactive Medicine. Changes to intellectual property law, decisions to regulate diagnostics as devices, and new advances in biomarkers have dramatically altered the way investors value this sector.
  • Crowdfunding: What Role in the Continuum of Financing Early Stage Innovation? Will this represent an important new financing stage before the Angel Capital round? How will traditional investors value this concept of “public venture capital?”
  • Bootstrap Finance: Bringing a Device to Market with Limited Resources. Outsourcing, staged development, globalization, and a regulatory paradigm shift will be discussed in the context of appropriate financing strategies.
  • Tech Transfer: Tapping into University Technology for Breakthroughs and Competitive Advantage. A wealth of technology exists within U.S. universities, much of it available and increasingly powerful. How will investors tap into this, and what resources foster the spin-out process?
  • CEO’s Unplugged will return again. AdvaMed brings us this highly popular panel brings together the top executives in healthcare and life sciences to discuss their outlook on the year ahead.
  • Fund Managers Outlook. A candid session with successful fund managers focused on microcap public companies in this space. The decline in research coverage of microcap public companies creates extraordinary opportunity to identify undervalued stocks with significant upside. Hear from the experts, and how they have consistently generated returns significantly higher than the averages.

In addition to these panels, the conference will feature more than 110 company presentations by some of the most promising public and private companies in the sector. The public company track – featuring promising, lesser-known microcap stocks – will be webcast live online on OneMedTV. OneMedForum also features workshops on operational areas of finance, networking sessions and 1x1 meetings.

Over 1,000 attendees – investors, including angel, seed, high-net worth individuals, family offices, institutional, venture capital and private equity — are expected to attend. With a new investor outreach program focusing on virtual networking, registration is up 300% compared to October 2012.

OneMedForum is now in the process of recruiting presenting companies. Interested parties can apply to present and learn more about conference programming at

Cloud computing is unquestionably one of the driving forces of DevOps, as the automation of operations transforms enterprise software development. DevOps, however, is more than a technology trend, as it represents a move toward silo-busting, self-organizing horizontal teams that drive business velocity. At the same time, enterprise Digital Transformation represents an upheaval across the enterprise, as customer preferences and behavior drive enterprise technology decisions. This transformation ...
Most of the IoT Gateway scenarios involve collecting data from machines/processing and pushing data upstream to cloud for further analytics. The gateway hardware varies from Raspberry Pi to Industrial PCs. The document states the process of allowing deploying polyglot data pipelining software with the clear notion of supporting immutability. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Shashank Jain, a development architect for SAP Labs, discussed the objective, which is to automate the IoT deployment proces...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.
In demand-intensive mobile and web applications, an emerging pattern is to host the Systems of Engagement in the cloud (for maximum responsiveness) but keep the Systems of Record with the other important business systems in the company datacenter, often on a tightly secured mainframe. But what about the space in between? In this IBM Redpaper publication, we show that the IBM Bluemix cloud platform offers technologies that make it easy for cloud-based SoEs to securely connect to on-premises IBM...
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase – without compromising functionality, performance or usability.
