Healthcare.gov isn’t the only option to enroll and acquire health care subsidies through the Affordable Care Act

BeneFinder.com teamed up with fellow Richmond firm Evenspring to release an all new insurance comparison and enrollment platform, just four months after BeneFinder sold the first Coventry insurance plan in the state of Virginia. This completely new and improved website is built around a proprietary algorithm to direct clients to the best health plan option.

BeneFinder’s analytics modules, which were developed by Evenspring, can estimate consumers’ out of pocket spending costs for each plan offered in their area and help consumers save up to 80% on health insurance annually. Because BeneFinder is a federally designated WBE (Web Broker Entity), clients can also use the platform to determine and collect eligible federal subsidies to help reduce costs further, all for free, as the cost to use a broker is paid for by insurance companies, not consumers.

Since the original site launched in November 2013, BeneFinder has been collecting user feedback. "We knew that getting to market quickly, and then iterating based on reception, would be crucial to platform success," said David Blanchard, President of BeneFinder. "Evenspring worked with us to take our initial product to the next level."

This second iteration of the site represents a significant improvement over the first, with run time performance accelerated by 75%, major enhancements to usability, and a brand new back-end to facilitate BeneFinder's growth over the year to come.

"We've completely overhauled the architecture of the BeneFinder platform," says Allen Hatzimanolis, Partner at Evenspring. "This newest version was designed with expansion in mind as David and the team at BeneFinder look to extend their reach beyond the Virginia market and to provide a launch-point for bringing this sophisticated analytics suite to consumers across the nation."

For far too long technology teams have lived in siloes. Not only physical siloes, but cultural siloes pushed by competing objectives. This includes informational siloes where business users require one set of data and tech teams require different data. DevOps intends to bridge these gaps to make tech driven operations more aligned and efficient.
IoT is at the core or many Digital Transformation initiatives with the goal of re-inventing a company's business model. We all agree that collecting relevant IoT data will result in massive amounts of data needing to be stored. However, with the rapid development of IoT devices and ongoing business model transformation, we are not able to predict the volume and growth of IoT data. And with the lack of IoT history, traditional methods of IT and infrastructure planning based on the past do not app...
For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to ch...
Organizations planning enterprise data center consolidation and modernization projects are faced with a challenging, costly reality. Requirements to deploy modern, cloud-native applications simultaneously with traditional client/server applications are almost impossible to achieve with hardware-centric enterprise infrastructure. Compute and network infrastructure are fast moving down a software-defined path, but storage has been a laggard. Until now.
Without a clear strategy for cost control and an architecture designed with cloud services in mind, costs and operational performance can quickly get out of control. To avoid multiple architectural redesigns requires extensive thought and planning.

Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals.

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...

This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the work...
