and lead to financial steadiness. Learn how Perficient is helping health
systems implement innovative performance management solutions that

“Rising customer-centric business methods and the impact of heightened
regulations have led healthcare organizations to reassess whether their
back-end systems are efficiently meeting front-end demand,” said Steven
Scott, general manager of Perficient’s healthcare practice. “As
companies react to these challenges, clinical and financial data must be
properly examined, so executives can establish accurate cost models and
make informed decisions. Perficient’s vast portfolio of healthcare
assets, including the High Performance Costing Expressway on display at
ANI 2014, enables clients to leverage technology to manage and monitor
both their own systems and the member experience.”

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.

The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.

In his session at @DevOpsSummit at19th Cloud Expo, Valentin (Val) Bercovici, CTO of Soli...
