As radiation-oncology clinics transition from paper to paperless environments, more documentation is being stored in computer databases. Medical-physics documentation was traditionally stored in large binders on a bookshelf and disparate Excel files on a PC hard drive. Historically this was the only option for storing the large volume of data required for regulatory compliance. In the last 5 years many vendors of radiation-oncology quality-assurance (QA) equipment have stepped up to fill this gap. Additionally, QA software is now available that combines the interfacing of hardware with QA systems. In this lecture I will cover some of the software packages available from vendors and will share the LewisGale experience in implementing one software package for integrated QA. I will conclude the lecture with some of my personal thoughts regarding suggestions for QA software vendors for the future.
Network Function Virtualization is the way of the future, but NFV poses challenges in the area of service assurance. Communication service providers deliver services based on service level agreements. Downtime and failures can result in costly penalties and fines.
These service providers must be able to provision applications, perform maintenance, manage operational cost and manage SLA for customers. They do this by measuring and tracking network performance with early detection and fault resolution capabilities.
Learn how NFV changes performance, security and monitoring requirements compared to traditional, fixed devices. Find out how Intel® Xeon® Scalable will support performance, security and service assurance as companies transform their networks in preparation for 5G.
Every organisation has invested recently in their assurance functions – budgets in compliance have grown by 10%, InfoSec by 17%, and ERM by 22% - but significant failures and incidents continue to occur. In addition, operational management regularly complain of assurance fatigue and ExCo’s increasingly demand a holistic approach to risk management or a “single view of the truth”.
