SALT LAKE CITY, UT -- (Marketwired) -- 01/09/14 -- Health Catalyst, a leader in healthcare data warehousing and analytics, received a high early- performance score among companies noted as having a healthcare-specific analytics platform in the report, Healthcare Analytics: Making Sense of the Puzzle Pieces, published this month by the respected research firm, KLAS. Health Catalyst achieved an early performance score of 90 on a scale of 100 in the report.
Heralded as a "newer and more effective way to approach EDW" that "often gives clients some tangible results in three to four months," Health Catalyst received favorable marks in a category that also included Deloitte (Recombinant), Explorys, Healthcare Data Works, IBM, Information Builders, Microsoft, Oracle, Premier, SAP (Sybase), and Teradata.
Health Catalyst's KLAS recognition follows recent accolades from Chilmark Research, which assigned Health Catalyst its highest overall rating in the Chilmark 2013 Clinical Analytics for Population Health Market Trends Report, and from Gartner, which named the company a "Cool Vendor for Healthcare Providers 2013" in its latest annual review of healthcare IT solutions.
KLAS' high marks of Health Catalyst are highlighted in what it calls an emerging category of enterprise data warehousing (EDW) and analytics platform solutions that are specifically designed for the unique challenges of healthcare. The nature of KLAS reporting is to provide market analysis based on the feedback from multiple healthcare organizations and KLAS notes that Health Catalyst is the only vendor in the emerging category of Healthcare Analytics Solution Platforms with "enough live clients validated by KLAS for an early performance score -- (and) reviews are highly positive."
Health Catalyst's Late-Binding Data Warehouse and Analytics platform, with more than 100 content-driven analytics applications, is "helping to redefine what EDW means in healthcare in a good way," according to the KLAS report. Health Catalyst takes "a fresh and palatable approach to healthcare EDW that challenges traditional thinking and long projects," the report added. "Initial clients see benefits beyond EDW and herald the vendor for introducing needed analytics paradigm changes in the organization."
"We appreciate the comprehensive research completed by KLAS and we are honored that their independent review highlighted our clients' successes in utilizing our platform and applications to improve care and efficiency," said Dan Burton, CEO of Health Catalyst. "Our clients' success and satisfaction is the fundamental way we measure our effectiveness. We're grateful to see third-party validation from KLAS that this is consistently occurring."

In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Claude Remillard, Principal Program Manager in Developer Division at Microsoft, contrasted how his team used config as code and immutable patterns for continuous delivery of microservices and apps to the cloud. He showed how the immutable patterns helps developers do away with most of the complexity of config as code-enabling scenarios such as rollback, zero downtime upgrades with far greater simplicity. He also demoed building immutable pipelines in the cloud ...

Today we can collect lots and lots of performance data. We build beautiful dashboards and even have fancy query languages to access and transform the data. Still performance data is a secret language only a couple of people understand. The more business becomes digital the more stakeholders are interested in this data including how it relates to business. Some of these people have never used a monitoring tool before. They have a question on their mind like “How is my application doing” but no id...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

All clouds are not equal. To succeed in a DevOps context, organizations should plan to develop/deploy apps across a choice of on-premise and public clouds simultaneously depending on the business needs. This is where the concept of the Lean Cloud comes in - resting on the idea that you often need to relocate your app modules over their life cycles for both innovation and operational efficiency in the cloud. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...

Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, sha...

The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to simplify and streamline our lives by automating routine tasks that distract us from our goals. This promise is based on the ubiquitous deployment of smart, connected devices that link everything from industrial control systems to automobiles to refrigerators. Unfortunately, comparatively few of the devices currently deployed have been developed with an eye toward security, and as the DDoS attacks of late October 2016 have demonstrated, this oversight can ...
