Record-Breaking Attendance at Evolution1 Partner Conference 2014

Evolution1® – the nation’s largest electronic payment, on-premise and cloud computing healthcare solution built on a vision to simplify the business of healthcare – kicked off Partner Conference 2014 yesterday at the Disney World Dolphin Resort in Orlando, Florida. The seventh annual go-to industry event has drawn record attendance again this year, growing 30 percent over last year.

In his keynote address this morning, Jeff Young, chairman and CEO of Evolution1, highlighted Partner achievements from 2013, including that Evolution1 powers more than 20 private exchange solutions with its Defined Contribution solution, 1Plan by Evolution1®. Additionally he outlined market opportunities and upcoming product strategies and discussed the new industry-leading 1View by Evolution1®.

Accessible via the web or a mobile device, 1View automatically captures and categorizes healthcare expenses in a simple, dashboard view to provide consumers a consolidated picture of their healthcare expenses. With 1View, consumers are empowered to make better decisions about how to best use their healthcare dollars – from managing payments to meet today’s healthcare needs to planning and budgeting to make better decisions about future healthcare expenditures. For administrators, 1View reduces administrative costs by automating payments to consumers and providers and through increased auto-substantiation on card payments.

Partner Conference 2014 includes product keynotes, concurrent session tracks, and healthcare trends general sessions – presented by members of the Healthcare Trends Institute’s Advisory Board – that delve into top-of-mind industry topics. Pat Williams, senior vice president of the Orlando Magic, is the guest keynote speaker.

Partner Conference, which has become the “don’t-miss” industry event for Evolution1 Partners, is designed for executives, sales and marketing leaders, and administrators interested in growing and increasing the profitability of their business. The annual premier Partner event enables attendees to experience the entire Evolution1 ecosystem.

“We are committed to providing a superior value proposition to our Partners who day in and day out work with us to reduce costs and simplify the business of healthcare,” said Young. “Partner Conference gives us the opportunity to come together for an intense agenda of learning, networking, and celebrating.”

The event includes an awards dinner and program tonight to honor Evolution1 Partners, which includes large health plans, banks, payroll providers, private exchanges, and leading third-party administrators. Awards will be given for Partner achievements in several areas including evangelism, innovation, leadership, and customer service as well as overall outstanding Partner successes.

As-a-service models offer huge opportunities, but also complicate security. It may seem that the easiest way to migrate to a new architectural model is to let others, experts in their field, do the work. This has given rise to many as-a-service models throughout the industry and across the entire technology stack, from software to infrastructure. While this has unlocked huge opportunities to accelerate the deployment of new capabilities or increase economic efficiencies within an organization, i...

The IoT market is on track to hit $7.1 trillion in 2020. The reality is that only a handful of companies are ready for this massive demand. There are a lot of barriers, paint points, traps, and hidden roadblocks. How can we deal with these issues and challenges? The paradigm has changed. Old-style ad-hoc trial-and-error ways will certainly lead you to the dead end. What is mandatory is an overarching and adaptive approach to effectively handle the rapid changes and exponential growth.
You have your devices and your data, but what about the rest of your Internet of Things story? Two popular classes of technologies that nicely handle the Big Data analytics for Internet of Things are Apache Hadoop and NoSQL. Hadoop is designed for parallelizing analytical work across many servers and is ideal for the massive data volumes you create with IoT devices. NoSQL databases such as Apache HBase are ideal for storing and retrieving IoT data as “time series data.”
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, of F5 Networks, will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is growing rapidly by extending current technologies, products and networks. By 2020, Cisco estimates there will be 50 billion connected devices. Gartner has forecast revenues of over $300 billion, just to IoT suppliers. Now is the time to figure out how you’ll make money – not just create innovative products. With hundreds of new products and companies jumping into the IoT fray every month, there’s no shortage of innovation. Despite this, McKinsey/VisionMobile data...
Clearly the way forward is to move to cloud be it bare metal, VMs or containers. One aspect of the current public clouds that is slowing this cloud migration is cloud lock-in. Every cloud vendor is trying to make it very difficult to move out once a customer has chosen their cloud. In his session at 17th Cloud Expo, Naveen Nimmu, CEO of Clouber, Inc., will advocate that making the inter-cloud migration as simple as changing airlines would help the entire industry to quickly adopt the cloud wit...
IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
There are so many tools and techniques for data analytics that even for a data scientist the choices, possible systems, and even the types of data can be daunting. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Chris Harrold, Global CTO for Big Data Solutions for EMC Corporation, will show how to perform a simple, but meaningful analysis of social sentiment data using freely available tools that take only minutes to download and install. Participants will get the download information, scripts, and complete en...
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....
