Investment in Innovation (IN3) Medical Device 360 Boston Panel Features How Acquirers Pick Their Companies

BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/06/14 -- 'Investment in Innovation (IN3) Medical Device 360 degrees Boston', the medtech industry's leading partnering event being held at Hyatt Regency, will be hosting an exciting keynote panel featuring large medical device companies and their criteria for buying.

Several leading large device companies will speak on the topic of "What Acquirers Want to See in a Start-Up Before Buying." Issues covered include:

  • What is your current philosophy/approach to acquisitions in terms of technology development vs. internally-driven R&D?
  • What role does M&A play? What do you believe is the success rate of device M&A deals?
  • Where do large corporations see the greatest opportunity for growth?
  • What questions should start-ups have already answered before approaching a potential buyer?
  • Are there enough venture-backed small companies in the pipeline so that you're satisfied that you're seeing a robust flow of opportunities

Panelists are from Baxter, Philips, Medtronic, and Johnson & Johnson.

IN3 Medical Device 360 degrees Boston will also feature presentations by 30+ early-, mid- and late-stage start-up companies seeking funding and/or strategic partnership across the spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic device markets. For a snapshot of companies, please see here.

In his session at @ThingsExpo, Jason Mondanaro, Director, Product Management at Metanga, discussed how you can plan to cooperate, partner, and form lasting all-star teams to change the world...
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands. Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction. ...
Internet of Things is moving from being a hype to a reality.

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.
The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
