Commenting on the results, Priory Group Chairman Mike Jeffries said:

"I am pleased that the Group has recorded another solid quarter of growth following our robust first half performance.  However, given the ongoing backdrop of commissioning reforms, certain elements of our business underperformed our expectations towards the end of the period.  This underperformance has continued into October with our acute hospitals, education and specialist care businesses particularly affected by uncertainty at a NHS funder and local authority level which has had the effect of delaying the time period between referrals and admissions.

"Although the timeline from referral to admission is likely to lengthen in the short term given the reforms, Priory's position within the marketplace remains strong and, ultimately, the disruption is only likely to delay decision making rather than result in lost business for the Group.

"However, as a result of this disruption, we now anticipate a c.2 to 3% reduction in our full year EBITDA performance against our previous guidance of £135m excluding the impact of acquisitions and additional ongoing quality costs.  

"Despite the near term hiatus in the referral process, the fundamentals underpinning the markets in which we operate remain favourable and the Group firmly believes that the healthcare commissioning reforms will ultimately have a positive impact on Priory once they are fully implemented in the longer term."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations. Until now. As the cloud toolkit to analyze data has evolved, GPUs have stepped in to massively parallel SQL, visualization and machine learning.

Large industrial manufacturing organizations are adopting the agile principles of cloud software companies. The industrial manufacturing development process has not scaled over time.

Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder.

As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. Thi...
