Boston Scientific Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 1, 2014, Boston Scientific Corporation (Boston Scientific) announced that real-world data on its S-ICD (Subcutaneous Implantable Defibrillator) System was presented online in the European Heart Journal. According to Boston Scientific, the interim analysis of the ongoing EFFORTLESS S-ICD registry (a post-market observational, non-randomized study), which evaluated 456 patients with a mean follow-up of 558 days, is the first real world study to date and confirms the clinical benefits of the S-ICD System in a broad range of patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest. The Company claims that the S-ICD System provides protection for patients at risk of sudden cardiac arrest without touching the heart. "The EFFORTLESS registry publication provides even more supportive evidence for this innovative therapy. These long-term results in a large patient cohort are comparable to similar data for transvenous ICDs and should help physicians as they decide which patients are the best candidates for the S-ICD System," said Kenneth Stein, M.D., Chief Medical Officer, Rhythm Management, Boston Scientific.

CareFusion Corporation Analyst Notes
On April 1, 2014, CareFusion Corporation (CareFusion) introduced a hair removal system from Surgical Site Solutions - ClipVac® - designed exclusively for a new innovative clipper handle from CareFusion. "This exclusive ClipVac system design from Surgical Site Solutions continues to differentiate our surgical clippers in the industry," said Jan Creidenberg, Vice President and General Manager of Infection Prevention at CareFusion. "The combination of our innovative new clippers and the ClipVac system promotes best practices for hair removal prior to surgery." According to CareFusion, the ClipVac system connects to CareFusion's new surgical clippers and is designed to improve the current hair removal practice by using vacuum technology to capture hair clippings as the hair is cut at the source. The Company claims that this saves time by capturing an average of 98.5% of the hair and airborne contaminants at the source, reducing the need for a secondary process of clean up. Test data supports vacuum technology as a safe, highly effective and efficient alternative when hair removal is carried out in the surgical or ancillary setting.

While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might...

Microservices are a very exciting architectural approach that many organizations are looking to as a way to accelerate innovation. Microservices promise to allow teams to move away from monolithic "ball of mud" systems, but the reality is that, in the vast majority of organizations, different projects and technologies will continue to be developed at different speeds. How to handle the dependencies between these disparate systems with different iteration cycles? Consider the "canoncial problem" ...

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...

Virtualization over the past years has become a key strategy for IT to acquire multi-tenancy, increase utilization, develop elasticity and improve security. And virtual machines (VMs) are quickly becoming a main vehicle for developing and deploying applications. The introduction of containers seems to be bringing another and perhaps overlapped solution for achieving the same above-mentioned benefits. Are a container and a virtual machine fundamentally the same or different? And how? Is one techn...

My team embarked on building a data lake for our sales and marketing data to better understand customer journeys. This required building a hybrid data pipeline to connect our cloud CRM with the new Hadoop Data Lake. One challenge is that IT was not in a position to provide support until we proved value and marketing did not have the experience, so we embarked on the journey ourselves within the product marketing team for our line of business within Progress.

Web Real-Time Communication APIs have quickly revolutionized what browsers are capable of. In addition to video and audio streams, we can now bi-directionally send arbitrary data over WebRTC's PeerConnection Data Channels. With the advent of Progressive Web Apps and new hardware APIs such as WebBluetooh and WebUSB, we can finally enable users to stitch together the Internet of Things directly from their browsers while communicating privately and securely in a decentralized way.

DevOps is often described as a combination of technology and culture. Without both, DevOps isn't complete. However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die. A Nutanix Enterprise Cloud has many benefits that provide the needed base for a true DevOps paradigm.
