Have you ever had to deal with insurance claims relating to medical payments or car accidents? How was your experience? How could it have been better? Do you feel as though the claims process took longer than it should have?
Insurance carriers seeking a competitive advantage should implement a CCM solution that quickly communicates the claim status from first notice of loss, to the appraisal, to communicating settlement amounts and ultimately paying claimants. The automation of claims creation saves times, reduces labor costs and speeds the time-to-settlement. Processing claims in a timelier manner also helps mitigate the risk of a negative experience because of a delayed settlement or payment.
In a recent Twitter Chat, I tweeted “Waiting for Standards is like Waiting for Godot.” The Twitter Chat covered various topics including converged cloud and identity management. As I mention in my post on the Top 5 phases of Iaas Standards Evolution, cloud computing standards, like all standards, go through a series of evolutionary phases of discovery, experience, consensus, simplification and governance.
SOCCI, the Service Oriented Cloud Computing Infrastructure standard is no different. It has emerged as a joint project between The SOA Work Group and The Cloud Work Group within The Open Group. HP, as a Platinum Member of The Open Group, has played a leadership role in the definition of this standard. At HP Discover 2012, I will discuss this standard as well as its application in a hypothetical business scenario so that we can collectively brainstorm on how it could apply in your environment.

Like most IT professionals you probably have competing priorities and not enough hours in the day to complete your high priority tasks. You may have heard about managed print services (MPS) and potential savings of up to 30%1. However, you may not have had time to investigate MPS or you may have implemented MPS and not achieved the results you wanted.
I have been blogging about the Application personalities (Applities) like the Big Kahuna, Problem Child, Lone Star, Crowd Pleaser and the Generalist. The Outsourcing Center interviewed me to publish a couple of articles -- first on this concept of the Applities and next on the manner in which they can be housed within the appropriate infrastructure.
I will be delivering a session on the Applities at HP Discover 2012 where I look forward to hearing your thoughts via a good interactive discussion on this concept. I am especially interested in any applities that you have encountered that I have not outlined already. I also look forward to your comments on the strategies that I have outlined for each one.
The survival of your company may be in your hands. With the explosive growth of mobile web adoption, your organization’s use of mobility to an advantage may spell survival or failure. If you are involved in the design of your enterprise’s use of mobile technologies, of revamping and re-gearing the infrastructure and organization to optimize for mobility, you want to get it right. You want to capitalize on the consumerization of IT. You want to be built for the future. What better way to get key insights and move forward than to attend HP Discover 2012 and participate in the many forward-looking mobility sessions -- including one specifically designed to help you innovate for the future.
As college students become new graduates, many of them are looking ahead to what they will be in the future. This includes the 20-somethings issuing IPOs for highly successful enterprises, as well as others in key responsible positions with a 3 letter acronym that begins with a C and ends in an O with your letter of choice in the middle. My letter choice is – I for Information. I am thinking of the CIO. I’d like to take a step back and highlight my key messages to the graduates aspiring to be the CIO of the future.
