On March 28, 2014, Cigna Corp. (Cigna) announced that via its award-winning Colorectal Cancer Screening Program, the Company intends to reach two million people in 2014 that are due for screening through a combination of targeted online messages and direct mail. According to the Company, approximately 280,000 newly eligible individuals covered by a Cigna medical plan, between the ages of 50 and 64, and whose claims data indicate they have not had a colorectal cancer screening, will receive information in the mail about appropriate colon cancer screening tests, including colonoscopy. Scott Josephs, M.D., Cigna National Medical Officer, stated, "Colorectal cancer is treatable and preventable, especially if detected early, which is why educating customers about screening is so important. We saw a significant increase in the rate of screenings as a result of last year's campaign, and we want that trend to continue in 2014 and beyond."

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Companies are harnessing data in ways we once associated with science fiction. Analysts have access to a plethora of visualization and reporting tools, but considering the vast amount of data businesses collect and limitations of CPUs, end users are forced to design their structures and systems with limitations.
