Liquid Grids®, a Precision Marketing Platform marketing for the Healthcare Industry, has recently completed a Series A investment round led by Miramar Digital Ventures (MDV). The company has also appointed Daniel M. Bradbury, former CEO of Amylin Pharmaceuticals, as new Chairman of the Board and added Sherman Atkinson as a Director.
Through its proprietary analytics engine Liquid Grids has aggregated and analyzed over 1 Billion healthcare conversations by over 125 million unique healthcare consumers. The company identifies disease-specific personas, which are scaled to deliver highly targeted, multi-channel advertising campaigns. “Closing this round of investment is fueling a rapid scaling of the opportunity we have cornered in the market and to extend our reach across the industry,” says Malcolm Bohm, CEO of Liquid Grids.
“Traditional Direct to Consumer advertising is inefficient and delivers irrelevant information to most people who receive it,” said Daniel M. Bradbury, the newly appointed Chairman of the Board for Liquid Grids. “Liquid Grids is the only company leveraging the power of the social networks to turn DTC on its head and deliver real value to the healthcare industry’s marketing spend.”
“Digital advertising within the health care space is growing exponentially, and Liquid Grids is leading the industry with its powerful analytics and targeted buyer personas and inbound strategies," said Sherman Atkinson, Managing Director of Miramar Digital Ventures. “We are very excited to have added Liquid Grids to the Miramar Digital Ventures portfolio.”

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 However, applying the culture to outdated technology is a recipe for disaster; as response times grow and connections between teams are delayed by technology, the culture will die.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.

WebRTC is about the data channel as much as about video and audio conferencing. However, basically all commercial WebRTC applications have been built with a focus on audio and video. The handling of “data” has been limited to text chat and file download – all other data sharing seems to end with screensharing. What is holding back a more intensive use of peer-to-peer data? In her session at @ThingsExpo, Dr Silvia Pfeiffer, WebRTC Applications Team Lead at National ICT Australia, looked at differ...

DevOps is being widely accepted (if not fully adopted) as essential in enterprise IT. But as Enterprise DevOps gains maturity, expands scope, and increases velocity, the need for data-driven decisions across teams becomes more acute. DevOps teams in any modern business must wrangle the ‘digital exhaust’ from the delivery toolchain, "pervasive" and "cognitive" computing, APIs and services, mobile devices and applications, the Internet of Things, and now even blockchain.
