Dexcom (NASDAQ:DXCM), a leader in continuous glucose monitoring, today announced that the Dexcom G4® PLATINUM, a continuous glucose monitoring system, was named the winner of two awards that recognize the device’s innovation, including the inaugural Everyday Health Award for Innovation, which was presented by wellness company, Everyday Health, and The 2014 International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) Digital Summit.
The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM was honored in the Emerging Technology category in a special live ceremony on January 9, 2014. Dexcom Chief Executive Officer, Terrance H. Gregg accepted the award on the company’s behalf. Dexcom was recognized among other innovative digital health products, for their “outstanding achievement in technology innovation aimed at improving overall health outcomes.”
Dexcom was also recognized as one of the top 10 innovative products at CES by the Tech Podcast Network. Mr. Gregg will be featured in a podcast today, Friday, January 10, where he will be interviewed on the success of the G4 PLATINUM and where the G4 PLATINUM ranks among other products being honored.
“We are humbled by the recognition that the Dexcom G4 PLATINUM has received and especially in the presence of our peers at CES, being included as part of a unique group on the cutting edge of marrying creativity, science and technology,” said Terrance H. Gregg, CEO, Dexcom. “At Dexcom we are proud of what we have accomplished by taking technology and science a step further, innovating on behalf of people with the serious and persistent disease of diabetes.”
The Everyday Health Awards for Innovation selected three finalists in five categories among over 140 entries of incredible innovations and competitive products in the digital health industry. The finalists were selected by an expert judging panel in the digital health and wellness industry and consumers had the opportunity to vote for their favorite products, which made up for 30 percent of the winner’s votes.
The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM tracks glucose levels continuously for 7 days throughout the 24-hour period using wireless technology, enabling users to view their glucose levels on demand. The system allows persons with diabetes to program personalized information, such as glucose targets and alerts, and it has an alarm feature to alert the user if glucose levels rise or fall to dangerous levels. The Dexcom G4 PLATINUM is the only CGM that comes with a built-in alarm that notifies users when glucose levels fall to critically low levels for an additional level of awareness no other CGM brand offers.

Both SaaS vendors and SaaS buyers are going “all-in” to hyperscale IaaS platforms such as AWS, which is disrupting the SaaS value proposition. Why should the enterprise SaaS consumer pay for the SaaS service if their data is resident in adjacent AWS S3 buckets? If both SaaS sellers and buyers are using the same cloud tools, automation and pay-per-transaction model offered by IaaS platforms, then why not host the “shrink-wrapped” software in the customers’ cloud? Further, serverless computing, cl...

This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and micro services. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your contain...

IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
