The number of visitors and professional registrants to the Stryker Education Channel and Education Calendar continues to grow steadily in 2014. The video-focused channel designed as a centralized location for Stryker Endoscopy Video content now has 2,440 confirmed registrants. More than 25% of those visitors have identified themselves as Physicians. None of the registrants are Stryker employees, as Stryker has enacted an Active Directory for easier access to the site.
The Stryker Education Channel launched to the public on March 26, 2013. The site http://educationchannel.stryker.com/ can be accessed from the Stryker.com Education & Training area and contains more than two dozens pieces of surgical video and didactic presentations from key opinion leaders focusing on the use of Stryker Endoscopic technology in the specialty areas of OB/GYN, Orthopaedics, General Surgery and Colorectal. Through a steady series of Audience Generation Campaigns and Physician Targeted Email Campaigns directed by BroadcastMed, the channel traffic has remained consistent with a total of 43,244 Unique Entrances to the Channel since inception. Of that total number of site Entrances, the Stryker Education Calendar, which contains listings of more than 150 Professional Education and Training Opportunities, Association Meetings and Skills Courses, covering over 20 Surgical and Clinical Specialty areas, has accounted for 11,500 Unique Pageviews.
The greatest amount of qualitative data for the Education Channel can be extracted from the registration database. The individual data contains name, email address, city, state, country, zip/postal code, hospital affiliation, area of interest/specialty, “describe yourself” (physician, PA, nurse, allied healthcare professional, student, patient, other), and an Opt-In for determining if viewers would like to receive more information from Stryker.

• 2440 Registrants, among those are;
• 612 Self-identified Physicians
• 487 Nurses, Allied Health Professionals, Hospital Admins.
• 735 Students and Educators
• 68 Marketing & Business Development Associates
• 540 Patient/Caregiver/Other
• 1570 registrants are US based/869 OUS

The audience for the channel is quite diverse from a geographical perspective. An assessment of the registration data finds viewers from 110 different counties, including:
• 1157 – United States
• 254 -– UK and Europe
• 135--- India and Pakistan
• 132 ---Middle East and Africa
• 116 --- China, Japan, SE Asia, Mainland Asia
• 81 ---- Mexico, Central and South America
• 65 ---- Middle East and Africa
In addition, traffic to the site has come from a combination of sources. The majority has come directly from Stryker.com, while a large audience has also come from Audience Generation Campaigns and Physician Targeted Email Campaigns directed by Stryker’s partnership with BroadcastMed.

Container technology is sending shock waves through the world of cloud computing. Heralded as the 'next big thing,' containers provide software owners a consistent way to package their software and dependencies while infrastructure operators benefit from a standard way to deploy and run them. Containers present new challenges for tracking usage due to their dynamic nature. They can also be deployed to bare metal, virtual machines and various cloud platforms. How do software owners track the usag...

Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...

Malicious agents are moving faster than the speed of business. Even more worrisome, most companies are relying on legacy approaches to security that are no longer capable of meeting current threats. In the modern cloud, threat diversity is rapidly expanding, necessitating more sophisticated security protocols than those used in the past or in desktop environments. Yet companies are falling for cloud security myths that were truths at one time but have evolved out of existence.

Digital Transformation is the ultimate goal of cloud computing and related initiatives. The phrase is certainly not a precise one, and as subject to hand-waving and distortion as any high-falutin' terminology in the world of information technology. Yet it is an excellent choice of words to describe what enterprise IT—and by extension, organizations in general—should be working to achieve. Digital Transformation means: handling all the data types being found and created in the organizat...
