LONDON, March 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --
The U.S. Supreme Court last year upheld President Obama's Affordable Care Act (ACA). The ACA is the biggest overhaul of the healthcare industry in decades. While critics say that ACA will have a negative impact on the healthcare industry, supporters of the reform believe that the increase in the amount of insured individuals will ultimately benefit the industry. Apart from ACA, another major trend that is having an impact on drug makers such as Mylan Inc. (NASDAQ: MYL), Forest Laboratories Inc. (NYSE: FRX), Avanir Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: AVNR), Akorn Inc. (NASDAQ: AKRX) and The Medicines Company (NASDAQ: MDCO) is the expiration of patents on several blockbuster drugs. On Thursday, drug makers ended on a mixed note even as the broad market rallied.

In most cases, it is convenient to have some human interaction with a web (micro-)service, no matter how small it is. A traditional approach would be to create an HTTP interface, where user requests will be dispatched and HTML/CSS pages must be served. This approach is indeed very traditional for a web site, but not really convenient for a web service, which is not intended to be good looking, 24x7 up and running and UX-optimized. Instead, talking to a web service in a chat-bot mode would be muc...

In his session at @BigDataExpo at @ThingsExpo, Andrew Warfield, CTO and Co-Founder of Coho Data, will dis...

What happens when the network doesn't work, or when the device is in airplane mode? You get unhappy, frustrated users.
