Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong Unveils Medicines Manhattan Project at Arianna Huffington’s Newly Launched World Post at World Economic Forum

Today at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, The World Post announced that Dr. Patrick Soon-Shiong assumed the role of contributing editor in healthcare and technology to the newly launched publication. The World Post will combine the best of traditional journalism with the best of an open media and new technologies. Created by Huffington Post's own Arianna Huffington and billionaire investor Nicolas Berggruen, this publication offers exclusively global news to a global audience with featured perspectives provided by major global leaders, including former Prime Minister Tony Blair, Bill Gates, Richard Branson, Yo-Yo Ma, and Larry Summers.

“We’re delighted that Patrick has accepted in joining The World Post as a contributing editor for health and technology,” said Arianna Huffington. “As a physician, philanthropist and entrepreneur, he’ll bring a unique perspective and expertise to some of the most pressing issues facing us as individuals and countries, from the ways technology can improve our well-being in a hyper-connected world to the moral urgency of creating a healthcare system that’s both more effective and more humane."

The World Post editorship will enable Dr. Soon-Shiong to share with millions of readers cutting-edge technological advancements in healthcare. In his first editorial contribution, Soon-Shiong unveiled the urgent need to launch Medicines Manhattan Project. http://www.huffingtonpost.com/patrick-soonshiong/medicines-manhattan-proje_b_4623864.html?utm_hp_ref=world

Managing mission-critical SAP systems and landscapes has never been easy. Add public cloud with its myriad of powerful cloud native services and this may not change any time soon. Public cloud offers exciting new possibilities for enterprise workloads. But to make use of these possibilities and capabilities, IT teams need to re-think everything they have done before. Otherwise, they will just end up using public cloud as a hosting platform for their workloads, aka known as “lift and shift.”
Multiple data types are pouring into IoT deployments. Data is coming in small packages as well as enormous files and data streams of many sizes. Widespread use of mobile devices adds to the total. In this power panel at @ThingsExpo, moderated by Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff, panelists looked at the tools and environments that are being put to use in IoT deployments, as well as the team skills a modern enterprise IT shop needs to keep things running, get a handle on all this data, and deliver...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
"Tintri focuses on the Ops side of the DevOps, which basically is pushing more and more of the accessibility of the infrastructure to the developers and trying to get behind the scenes," explained Dhiraj Sehgal of Tintri in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
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...
