HL7 is growing as a wide-ranging solution to the requirement for improved interoperability. But merely conforming to HL7 specifications is not enough to deliver superior IT performance. This webinar will provide an update through insights into the Standards and explore the steps that healthcare providers are taking in building optimized HL7 application environments.
In this webinar, learn:
* Overview of HL7 standards
* The role of HL7 toward achieving health data interoperability
* How to leverage HL7 for service assurance to uncover the full context of IT service anomalies crossing multiple layers which contribute to slow application response times and poor patient experience in transmitting health information.
Enterprises can gain business benefit from emerging digital computing and communications technologies. Their business departments want to experiment with new solutions and to develop and deploy them rapidly. They often want to use multiple technologies in combination. But they are faced with a mass of product-specific and technology-specific standards that make it hard to use, and harder still to integrate, different technologies.
Open Platform 3.0 is a standard for platforms. It applies to platforms that give users access to digital technologies. It is being developed by The Open Group. The presentation will explain why Open Platform 3.0 is needed, how it is developing, and how it will impact cloud networks.
Cloud storage has transformed the storage industry, however interoperability challenges that were overlooked during the initial stages of growth are now emerging as front and center issues. Join this Webcast to learn the major challenges that businesses leveraging services from multiple cloud providers or moving from one cloud provider to another face.
The SNIA Cloud Data Management Interface standard (CDMI) addresses these challenges by offering data interoperability between clouds. SNIA and Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) have partnered to create a SNIA CDMI Conformance Test Program to help cloud storage providers achieve CDMI conformance.
As interoperability becomes critical, end user companies should include the CDMI standard in their RFPs and demand conformance to CDMI from vendors.
Join us on July 19th to learn:
•Critical challenges that the cloud storage industry is facing
•Issues in a multi-cloud provider environment
•Addressing cloud storage interoperability challenges
•How the CDMI standard works
•Benefits of CDMI conformance testing
•Benefits for end user companies
There is a significant disconnect between the meaning of the words conformance and interoperability as perceived from a traditional technical mindset and the reality of end-users existing in multiple domains. Too often, it is presumed if one version of a product performs a single conformance or interoperability test that it will satisfy most or nearly all of the interoperability needs of the user community. However, based on the data we have collected through running large numbers of interoperability and conformance tests, we can demonstrate that just a very small percentage of test case error rate (less than 0.5%) among the product test group results in a high number of deployment interoperability failures. This is due to a misunderstanding of the relational and non-transitive aspect of interoperability itself and also a failure to appreciate product life cycle issue (i.e. multiple versions of a single product) with deployment across multiple user domains. This webcast will expand on these concepts as well as speak on a recent mathematic probability paper which reveals the likelihood of conformance through interoperability testing (and vice versa), how it is often far lower than expected and how testing programs can successfully address this.Read more >
The cloud computing market continues to grow as rapidly as ever and yet, only a small portion of the true value of cloud has been realized.
Interoperability, portability and security are some of the biggest roadblocks slowing down the advancement of the cloud. The ability to port data, applications and share cloud services across multiple environments, while ensuring data protection and transparency is on top of every organization’s wish list today. A standardized set of principles can assist these organizations in utilizing the offerings of the cloud to the fullest.
In this roundtable discussion, hear about the current state of cloud standards, the latest developments and how these changes affect your organization and the industry as a whole.

In this talk, Ram will provide a unified framework for Internet of Things, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Smart Networked Systems and Societies, and then discuss the role of ontologies for interoperability.
The Internet, which has spanned several networks in a wide variety of domains, is having a significant impact on every aspect of our lives. These networks are currently being extended to have significant sensing capabilities, with the evolution of the Internet of Things (IoT). With additional control, we are entering the era of Cyber-physical Systems (CPS). In the near future, the networks will go beyond physically linked computers to include multimodal-information from biological, cognitive, semantic, and social networks.
This paradigm shift will involve symbiotic networks of people (social networks), smart devices, and smartphones or mobile personal computing and communication devices that will form smart net-centric systems and societies (SNSS) or Internet of Everything. These devices – and the network -- will be constantly sensing, monitoring, interpreting, and controlling the environment.
A key technical challenge for realizing SNSS/IoE is that the network consists of things (both devices & humans) which are heterogeneous, yet need to be interoperable. In other words, devices and people need to interoperate in a seamless manner. This requires the development of standard terminologies (or ontologies) which capture the meaning and relations of objects and events. Creating and testing such terminologies will aid in effective recognition and reaction in a network-centric situation awareness environment.
Before joining the Software and Systems Division (his current position), Ram was the leader of the Design and Process group in the Manufacturing Systems Integration Division, Manufacturing Engineering Lab, where he conducted research on standards for interoperability of computer-aided design systems.
