Tue, Jun 16, 2015

While Enterprise Mobility is almost on every company's radar, not every company is the at the same maturity level when it comes to enterprise mobility strategy. A meaningful and well articulated strategy requires taking into consideration the risks and benefits that come with enterprise mobility - from apps, to integration with backend systems, to clearly spelt out BYOD policies and more. 

And with enterprise mobility maturity, comes a topic of equally important proportion, and that is enterprise mobility management. While Mobile Device Management ( MDM) was all the rage a few years back, companies are now adopting a more sophisticated and comprehensive solution in the form of enterprise mobility management.

Steve is the GM Sales for North Eastern US at a leading software company. He has just got off the phone with his VP Sales – his face still red with embarrassment. Steve had thought he had the forecast under control – the deals in the CRM added well, the sales team was upbeat – and as per the latest billing statement that he got last Friday, 30% of the forecasted opportunities had got billed by the middle of the quarter – which, going by experience, was good going. In most quarters, only around 25% of the target was achieved by the middle of the quarter.

I also touched upon functional details on one of the three out of box modules provided in the ResearchKit software framework – Surveys. Today we will look in depth at the second module – Informed Consent. As I did last week,I will touch upon the functional feature set of this module rather than many technical details. Of course you can get into more implementation level details here.

Apple ResearchKit - Will It Change Medical Research As We Know It?(Part-2)

Posted by Shyam Deval

Thu, May 14, 2015

In my blog last week, I touched upon how Apple is once again attempting to fundamentally impact and disrupt an industry that is very change averse with a lot of entrenched interests and challenges. Apple’s ResearchKit (an open source software platform)in many ways promises to democratize medical research by making it easier for the masses to participate in it while at the same time making it efficient (and cost effective) for the researchers. 

In today’s blog I am going to touch upon at a high level what’s included under the hood in ResearchKit as well as more functional details on one of the built-in modules - Surveys.You can get into more implementation level details here.

At its core,ResearchKit provides three modules that can be customized and built upon by the developers.These modules provide base functionality for items commonly needed in medical research such as surveys, participant consent and simple active tasks that users perform such as walking, sitting and talking.
