Jersey City - What does the future look like for information technology? It will consist of cloud computing, mobile devices and edge technologies, according to a report by top IT officials from various government agencies in the United States.
Luke McCormack, CIO at the Justice Department, said that cloud-as-a-service will become extremely important. McCormack also urged the industry innovate stack computing and apply a focus on edge technology as part of emerging technology.
Sandy Peavy, CIO for the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), said that mobility will be vital to the future of training and simulation. At the present time, Peavy’s agency is creating a pilot program that includes tablets as part of the training settings. Richard Spires, CIO for DHS, concurred with Peavy’s assessment.
Rob Mancini, chief technology officer for the District of Columbia, thinks data governance is crucial, despite how much the technology sector talks about the expansion of cloud computing and wireless communications.
“We can talk about cloud all we want, and we do use some of that technology, but we always have to focus on what data we’re talking about and how to capture, protect or correlate that data,” said Mancini in an interview with AFCEA magazine. “When folks want to take that to the cloud, we have to know what that data is, what form it is in, when it’s at rest versus being transmitted, how we get at that data, and who is overseeing and sharing that data.”
It was reported Monday on the best practices to address data vulnerability at hospitals. It was noted that even though hospitals are installing new technologies and computer systems, it could lead to data breaches and security infiltrations.
“If you don't [address this] and you do have a major breach, it could close the doors of the hospital,” stated Brian Doerr, senior vice president of IT for Community Hospital Corp, in an interview with Becker’s Hospital Review. “Security is vital to the continued success of a healthcare organization.”
For healthcare clinics as well as financial services firms and small and medium-sized businesses, IT services are costly, time-consuming and perhaps even difficult to understand. One entity that is combining cost-effective practices with “Fortune-500” capabilities is ITelagen, an IT support firm that offers services to the health, finance and business industries.
Located in Jersey City, New Jersey and founded un 2006, ITelagen offers an array of flat-rate services so businesses can maintain the health and security of their computer systems and networks without the astronomical costs.
As companies utilize IT as a competitive business tool instead of an expensive function and time-waster, ITelagen provides competitive products and services for the industries listed above.
Its services for the healthcare can advance medical clinics through the uses of NextGen Electronic Health Records (EHR) Support and Hosting, implementation and support, template development, systems administration and ambulatory EHR Licensing. These services can combine billing, IT and hosting, while leading to increased revenues, speeds collection and an efficient IT system.
Companies involved in the finance sector have the options of desktop, server and network plans, while also having the choice of BlackBerry hosting and online backup. These packages are also presented to small- and medium-sized businesses.
The company has several certifications and partnerships with some of the world’s leading technology innovators and application providers. Some of them qualifications consist of Apple Certified Support Professionals, Cisco Certifications, Microsoft Certified Partner, NextGen Certified Professional and World Wide Web Consortium.
ITelagen has been viewed as a leader in its field with the latest distinctive honor. The company was recently placed at No. 80 on Nine Lives Media’s sixth-annual MSPmentor 501 Global Edition, a list and report that looks at the world’s top managed service providers.
“We are proud to have been named #80 to the MSPmentor Top 100 Global List," said John O’Keefe, CEO of ITelagen, in a press release.
