Affordable Care Act & What To Expect In 2014

Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare) finally becomes the law of the land on New Year's Day. At least, 2.1 million Americans have already signed up for insurance plans, but the question is -are you ready for this humongous change?

DURHAM, N.C., Jan. 6, 2014 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- The controversial Affordable Care Act is now in full effect and it guarantees access to health coverage to Americans, whether they're young or old, sick or healthy. Most practices are still scratching their heads when it comes to this bill. The Affordable Care Act was set up to reform the healthcare industry by President Barack Obama on March 23, 2010, and was supported by the Supreme Court on June 28, 2012. There has been a lot of hue and cry towards the implementation of Obamacare or Affordable Care Act. To elucidate the ins and outs, expert speaker Andrew Eriksen, CMPE will cover the much-talked-about elements of ACA with AudioEducator.

The most often asked question post-DevOps introduction is: “How do I get started?” There’s plenty of information on why DevOps is valid and important, but many managers still struggle with simple basics for how to initiate a DevOps program in their business. They struggle with issues related to current organizational inertia, the lack of experience on Continuous Integration/Delivery, understanding where DevOps will affect revenue and budget, etc. In their session at DevOps Summit, JP Morgenthal...
Agile, which started in the development organization, has gradually expanded into other areas downstream - namely IT and Operations. Teams – then teams of teams – have streamlined processes, improved feedback loops and driven a much faster pace into IT departments which have had profound effects on the entire organization. In his session at DevOps Summit, Anders Wallgren, Chief Technology Officer of Electric Cloud, will discuss how DevOps and Continuous Delivery have emerged to help connect dev...
Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...

In the midst of the widespread popularity and adoption of cloud computing, it seems like everything is being offered “as a Service” these days: Infrastructure? Check. Platform? You bet. Software? Absolutely. Toaster? It’s only a matter of time. With service providers positioning vastly differing offerings under a generic “cloud” umbrella, it’s all too easy to get confused about what’s actually being offered. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Kevin Hazard, Director of Digital Content for SoftL...
Containers are changing the security landscape for software development and deployment.
