DALLAS, Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Physicians' Capital Investments, LLC (PCI), a leader in medical real estate development and medical investment solutions, and Fresenius Medical Corporation, N.A. announced today that they received the "2013 Outstanding Development Award - New Construction" for its recent Sandy Complex, LP project from the City of Sandy, Oregon. The Sandy Complex, LP is an award-winning 4,696 square feet, 12-station FMC Dialysis Facility located at 37139 Hwy. 26, Sandy, Oregon, 97055. The award was presented by Sandy Planning Commission Chair, Jerry Crosby, and accepted by Jim Turner, Director of Business Development for PCI, and Jean Stevens, Regional Vice President of FMC.
In April of 2008, design standards became effective for all commercial, industrial, and non-residential (school and church) buildings. Known as the "Sandy Style," the design guidelines are the result of extensive public involvement.
Following adoption of Sandy Style design standards, an award program was developed to bring public attention to quality building projects within the city and to honor those individuals who were responsible for making those projects happen. 2013 is the fifth year the Outstanding Development Awards have been presented.
Sandy Style is an architectural style developed by the City of Sandy, modeled after the Cascadian Architectural style by adapting elements of the English Arts and Crafts and Oregon Rustic styles. The intent of the new standards is not to make all buildings look the same, but rather to ensure that they all have certain design elements in common in order to create a more unified overall appearance. Some elements of the style include:
· Steeply pitched roofs and gables
· Strong base materials using stone, block, or brick
· Exposed heavy timbers or natural wood beams, posts, and trim
· Warm earth-tone paint colors and/or brick
· Articulated building facades with prominent covered entries
· Windows to allow viewing into the building
· Public gathering spaces
· Pedestrian focused site layout with parking and vehicle access
"PCI is honored to be recognized with the 2013 Outstanding Development Award for New Construction. This project was a direct result of PCI and FMC's strong medical development partnership and our commitment to collaborate and thoroughly understand the medical needs and aspirations of the local community. We look forward to additional growth in the Mount Hood Corridor," said James Turner, Director of Business Development for PCI.
"The Sandy project signals PCI's entry into the state of Oregon. PCI and FMC are honored to work with and act as a catalyst in the City of Sandy for medical related development," said Pedro Vergne-Morell, CEO of PCI.

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem"...

I recently attended and was a speaker at the 4th International Internet of @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center. I also had the opportunity to attend this event last year and I wrote a blog from that show talking about how the “Enterprise Impact of IoT” was a key theme of last year’s show. I was curious to see if the same theme would still resonate 365 days later and what, if any, changes I would see in the content presented.

The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...

The cloud. Like a comic book superhero, there seems to be no problem it can’t fix or cost it can’t slash. Yet making the transition is not always easy and production environments are still largely on premise. Taking some practical and sensible steps to reduce risk can also help provide a basis for a successful cloud transition. A plethora of surveys from the likes of IDG and Gartner show that more than 70 percent of enterprises have deployed at least one or more cloud application or workload. Y...
