Analytics in Healthcare: Impact & Scope Posted by on Wed, January 8th, 2014

Currently as the healthcare market is growing, it has become clear that organizations which are capable of leveraging the power of analytics are demonstrating a clear advantage in market share over their competitors. Big Data analysis in healthcare has in fact, now become the driving force for creating opportunities in developing optimal treatment pathways, improving the medical loss ratio and better managing clinical decision support systems.Analytics in Healthcare

With soaring healthcare costs especially in the USA as well as growing regulatory pressures for both affordability and improvements in clinical outcomes – Analytics has emerged as a silver lining for this industry. Analytics in healthcare has proven to generate insights that not only lower total costs, reduce inefficiencies, and identify high risk population but also can predict a patient’s future healthcare needs.

Therefore with analytics today, decision support systems are now being subjected to various statistical and artificial intelligence techniques. This is further resulting in development of meaningful insights such as identification of various patient risk factors, grouping of patients based on varied health conditions, provision of actionable information to physicians at the points of care and most importantly, measurable progress on healthcare outcomes.

The introduction of analytics in healthcare therefore, has helped in overcoming umpteen challenges creating true, real value for this sector. Some of these everyday challenges include:

  • Diverse data sources that make it difficult to create a single source for the truth.
  • Information not being available in a timely manner, so decisions are not data driven.
  • Lack of a clear vision on how the organization can benefit from analytics.
  • Too many manual systems deployed, resulting in insufficient electronic data.
  • The culture not being ready to become a data-driven organization.

However to overcome all of the above challenges, it is imperative that healthcare organizations create an environment conducive to nurturing and incorporating analytics. They must in fact create a ‘knowledge & analytics driven culture’ that pervades their entire organization. Also, all clinical information stored in their standard data formats such as EHRs must be captured and transformed into data on which analytics can be applied, so as to successfully derive actionable intelligence from it.

To conclude therefore, it can be said that analytics today is most definitely a crucial trend in healthcare that will significantly reshape its landscape in the coming years. Furthermore, analytics is also what is now driving a shift in this industry towards solutions that are capable of delivering real value such as:

  • Improving clinical quality of care.
  • Improving patient safety and reducing medical errors.
  • Improving wellness, prevention and disease management.
  • Optimizing supply chains and human capital management.
  • Improving risk management and regulatory compliance.

In fact, it is analytics alone today that can deliver on the above results most efficiently to ensure that those who need care the most – receive it.

Capture Accurate, On-site Proof of Deliveries with KloudData’s mPoID App Posted by on Thu, October 3rd, 2013

blog-imgSAP Mobile Partner App Challenge, this year, has an industry flavor and requires partners to develop mobile apps that address specific problems faced by Retailers, Wholesale Distributors or Transport and Logistics Providers. The SAP App Challenge is a fantastic opportunity for SAP Mobile Partners to showcase their mobility competency and bring forth mobile solutions that solve diverse business problems.

KloudData won the App Challege in 2012 with mMR (or mobile MedRecords) app and the team was looking forward to participate again this year. The mPoID or mobile Proof of Issue & Delivery was conceptualized with a focus on the Transport & Logistics industry. Especially for providers that deal with complex and bulk deliveries of liquids, chemicals or other materials requiring quality or calibration data to be captured at the point of delivery. Our solution integrates with the SAP Sales & Distribution (S&D) module, and empowers the Transport & Logistics work area of an enterprise. This KloudData app features extraordinary UI designs and gives highly useful enterprise data access to transporters and drivers. The app is especially useful for delivery personnel who are transporting any kinds of volatile materials that are Temperature & Pressure sensitive, and are likely to experience transit losses, or perishable or likely to face pilferage, as the app allows them to get the Proof of Delivery on their hand held devices with a single click.

Delivery and Transport companies operating in various industry domains usually incur losses due to failed deliveries or materials lost during the transportation of sensitive equipment. Improper documentation results in ambiguity that makes it difficult to determine the actual losses in the materials as well as in time. This is especially true during the transportation of materials like oil and gas where variations in the quantity of the goods also depends upon external factors such as Temperature, Pressure etc. Additionally, loading exact quantities as per delivery document is a challenge in many cases such as bulk materials – liquid or solid.

Managing a mobile work force in the field, as well as complying with industry standards is a big enough challenge, that becomes more difficult by unforeseen circumstances encountered by large fleets transporting bulks of volatile materials such as oil. These challenges can however be dealt with, by putting an effective and robust Proof of Issue & Delivery (PoID) system in place.

Although mobile technology has come in quite handy in the past decade for better communications during transit, the current advent of smart phones and other devices is changing this scenario radically. The smart phones and tablets are now able to connect the field force with enterprise systems through the internet. The work force (technicians or executives) therefore, can now directly interact with the enterprise systems through a dedicated app interface.

mobile Proof of Issue & Delivery or mPoID is KloudData’s mobile app, purpose-built for organizations that need proof of deliveries in transportation, distribution, shipping and logistics. This app is thus very useful for tasks that require capturing of special calibration data like order-specific quantities, size and weight, or density, temperature and volume of picked-up items against actually delivered items. With this simple to use app, you can equip your transporters with an easy option to record all required delivery information on their hand held devices, and also capture customer signatures as final proofs of deliveries.

mPoID allows enterprises to do away with paper-based processes and significantly reduces their delivery errors. The mPoID app brings greater transparency and controls into your delivery and logistics operations. mPoID is intuitive and easy to use, and seamlessly integrates with SAP ERP’s S&D module, ensuring rapid ROI for an enterprise.

The Key Features of the mPoID App are:

  • Accurate & faster deliveries with requisite proofs.
  • Electronic proof of deliveries, integrated with backend ERP.
  • Source-to-destination route maps on hand held devices.
  • Onsite, on-device signature captures for immediate delivery confirmations.
  • Real-time delivery status, with detailed quality & quantity information.
  • Improved accuracy, faster billing & reduced disputes.
  • Higher customer service & satisfaction levels.
  • Improved supply chain process efficiency from dispatch to billing.
  • Operational efficiency with decreased administrative time in paper handling.
  • Ability to incorporate built-in material specific calculations into the app

The SAP App Challenge brings out the best in our team and helps us improve the quality of our solutions. Our apps are easy to use with a complete set of functionality to seamlessly mobilize an entire process. Our mission is to facilitate and contribute to our client’s businesses instead of merely developing another mobile app. We deliver apps as per your industry specifications and needs.

Leverage KloudData’s mobile development competency and get an ‘End-to-End’ solution to connect your mobile devices with SAP or non-SAP systems. KloudData is proud to deliver yet another end-to-end solution in mPoID, and not just one more mobile app.

Three Strategies for Adopting High Value Business Mobility Posted by on Fri, August 23rd, 2013

Strategies-for-Adopting-High-Value-Business-MobilityTechnology has radically changed the way businesses function. However, this upsurge of mobile technologies and the internet have had the most profound impact on all businesses. It is no accident that many small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) are waking up to the competitive advantage offered by mobility. Adaption of enterprise mobility has risen by almost 37% in the last three years, and the pace won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Enterprises across varied industrial sectors can now leverage the unwired freedom offered by mobile technologies and smart phones in practically all dimensions of businesses.

There are today, numerous industry and task specific mobile applications for enterprises across sectors. Be it logistics, supply chain management, financials to sales, all can benefit from mobile technologies. Enterprises as a whole can also gain a massive competitive advantage by the integrated use of mobile apps for all the aforementioned business processes. Quick access to relevant business information and faster response time results further in more efficient and streamlined operations.

However, SMB’s need to consider the following fthreefactors to effectively counter the challenges posed by enterprise wide mobility adaptations:

  • Security Management: Many companies limit the use of mobile devices in the wake of security concerns. Although security risks is an important factor, but enterprises would lose out to their  competition if mobility is restricted. In order to counter this, business leaders need to formulate security policies for effective mobility practices across their enterprise. This would typically incorporate device usage, data handling and reporting. In order for strict compliance of these security practices, the companies need to make use of technologies. Mobile device management solutions are one such effective way to enforce security practices and standardize its use across the enterprise. This can also take care of remote wiping of sensitive enterprise data in cases of lost or stolen devices.
  • Cost Controlling: Cost of mobility is another area that concerns a lot of enterprise leaders.  Adapting mobility may require upfront costs of tablets and smart phones along with the price for data usage. Bills especially become a concern due to executives and field service people travelling onsite, sometimes even internationally. Enterprises can adapt several strategies to control costs. Some of these include encouraging the BYOD culture. This restricthe upfront device costs. Configuring alerts in data intensive applications that warn about the expiry of data usage limits are also helpful in managing and controlling  excessive data use by employees.
  • Application Integration and Device Management: There are numerous applications for a specific purposes and processes. These apps need to work in synchronizations so as to provide better outcomes. For example a sales personnel checking stocks from an inventory app, while taking a customer order. In this case, the inventory app shows the real-time stocks details, which in turn would need to be updated from supply chain and warehouse applications. This back-end data sharing through various company data bases can be taken care by using a platform based mobility strategy (like SAP Mobile Platform). This would also solve the problem of supporting different mobile devices.

In conclusion therefore, if enterprises today acclimatize all the above listed strategies, the challenges of mobility adaptation would certainly be reduced. It would also bring in a lot of scalability to enterprise mobility practices. Check out our SAP Ebook to know more on these strategies in depth. Find out how enterprises can avoid any pitfalls and derive greater business values from adapting enterprise mobility.

How SMEs can Reduce the TCO While Maximizing ROI with SAP Business All-in-One Posted by on Mon, August 5th, 2013

Leaders of mid-size and small enterprises face a unique challenge of cost escalations against outgrown business management software. The old systems however, cannot keep up with their pace of growth hence resulting in lack of control over certain critical business functions as well as lack of visibility over company-wide operations.SAP Business All-in-One Solution

According to Forrester’s report, over 80% of SMEs believe that application software improves their efficiency and productivity. Improving the functioning of their core business processes usually yields quick, positive results, which relate back directly to the bottom line.

In a SMBGroup’s Whitepaper: ERP for Growing SMEs, the statistics indicate clear benefits that small and mid-size businesses can gain from implementing ERP software. These include enterprise wide visibility and smooth operations as well as implementation of standard business processes that incorporate the best practices of that industry.

But without the right management software in place, opportunities right in front of you can also be easily overlooked or missed. Therefore, business leaders of SMEs are becoming concerned for not being able to capitalize on their current opportunities due to lack of updated IT landscape. Shifting to completely new business management software means huge infrastructural investments as well as losses due to time delays for new deployment and data migration processes. This obviously adds to the cost of operations resulting in a lower ROI.

Choosing the right technology software or business solution is a dismaying task for many SMEs who have to balance out the current costs against immediate and future benefits. SME executives generally carry a notion that an ERP system is only for large companies and too pricey for companies their size. Inevitably, the decision is overshadowed by the desire to save on expenditure in the short-term, resulting in a solution that fails to serve the company’s best interests in the long run.

Uncovering Opportunities with SAP A1

SAP Business All-in-One solution is the best example of a software package that addresses the challenge of enormous investment on infrastructure. It helps companies bridge the gap between strategy and execution by including all the core processes required to run a successful business. So, unlike smaller, point solutions that typically focus on a particular area of an SME’s operation, this system is designed to provide complete business management functions, covering financials, sales, customers, inventory, operations and more.

The software can be installed extremely quickly and is easy to maintain. It captures all the companies’ information in a single system, making the information instantly accessible across the organisation and eliminating duplicate data entry, cost and related errors. The solution is template-based, making use of global, industry-specific best practices and can be customised as per requirement.

SAP Business All-in-One is a configurable solution that integrates most important business functions, helping SMEs effectively manage their financials, accounting, human resources, operations, corporate services, and other critical operations. For companies who focus on operational excellence, business agility and customer intimacy, this solution provides the in-depth processes for efficiently managing all aspects of their business.

Maximize ROI and Reduce TCO with SAP Solution

One of the biggest advantages of SAP Business All-in-One is that it includes pre-configured software with optional hardware and a fixed implementation scope and cost. Deploying this solution is affordable and predictable, with minimal business loss and fast time to value. The SMEs can be up and running with SAP All-in-One in as little as 16 weeks.

You also get the option to plug on CRM functionality to easily manage a quote into an opportunity and a sales order. And of course the sales order links right back to the ERP system to give you end-to-end visibility on sales, fully integrated with billing, pricing and distribution.
SAP Business All-in-One solutions come bundled with detailed documentation, sample data, and the forms and reports needed to get a small and mid-size company quickly up and running on this software. KloudData as a premium SAP partner also offers a variety of options for implementation to fit the way you run your business.

Snippets of Lunch and Learn with SAP Sybase IQ 16 event Posted by on Thu, May 16th, 2013

225678_525486087497065_111671197_nKloudData and SAP recently conducted a Lunch and Learn Event at the New York office of Sybase, an SAP company. The event was well attended by technology decision makers primarily from banking and financial services sector. The focal point of discussion was the launch of SAP Sybase IQ16 and how it helps financial services in handling very large databases and run real-time analytics in a faster, more efficient way. SAP experts discussed the power of SAP Sybase IQ to deliver data-driven insights in record time, with short presentations on:

  • The speed and power of SAP Sybase IQ
  • The real-time data platform: a road map to SAP HANA adoption
  • SAP Business Suite powered by SAP HANA and SAP Sybase Adaptive Server Enterprise (SAP Sybase ASE)

A short Q&A round between Miten Mehta, COO, KloudData and Sid Sipes, Director, Data Warehouse Solutions & HANA Platform, SAP, served as an interesting appetizer to the luncheon.

Here we recap the highlights from this Q&A

Miten- Tell us in short what exactly Sybase IQ 16 is?

Sid- SAP Sybase IQ is the #1 column database in the market today. And with the release of IQ 16 it’s faster and more efficient for extreme-scale EDWs and Big Data analytics. SAP Sybase IQ 16 delivers major innovations in the areas of performance optimization, data compression and data protection. IQ makes it simpler and more cost-effective to exploit the value of massive amounts of data at the speed of business, helping to transform companies through new insights that were previously impossible or impractical.

Miten- So how can SAP Sybase IQ 16 assist enterprises in the current scenario of Big Data?

Sid - A good question Miten, we are all aware that necessity is the mother of invention. Currently many enterprises are dealing with the challenge posed by the onslaught of big data. The volume of data that needs to be processed has now reached from terabytes to Petabytes. And, SAP understands that in order to go from terabytes to petabytes you need to be able to load massive amounts of data fast – big volumes equal the need for fast velocity – otherwise your systems would be brought to a standstill. Yet, many traditional BI tools and EDWs usually depend on weekly or nightly batch-oriented approaches to upload massive quantities of new data, providing limited value to time-sensitive business processes. Not so with SAP Sybase IQ 16, now companies have immediate access to the new data as soon as it is received by IQ — making Big Data available to applications and people for immediate action. And all this is delivered at a considerably low price.

Miten- How can IQ keep its’ costs low?

Sid- IQ offersthe ability to store and query more data, more affordably. The biggest SAP Sybase IQ customers are in the petabyte range, with many in the dozens to hundreds of terabyte range. Often they are spending a lot of time administering their current database; or using more hardware than is required. IQ is well known for its ability to compress data, often up to 70%. That in turn reduces storage costs. And SAP Sybase IQ is easy to learn and use, which reduces personnel overhead.

Miten- This is indeed great, but can you explain to us a bit more how Sybase IQ delivers the speed in Big Data?

Sid- Sure, a key to improving decision making in a rapidly changing environment is the ability to enable analytics on real-time information, and that is why in IQ 16, SAP introduced IQ’s new in-memory, read/write-optimized row-level versioning store that provides fast, concurrent ingestion of data from multiple sources – providing low latency for immediate updates.

Miten- Sid, could you give us an example – why is speed so critical in Big Data Analytics?

Sid- Sure Miten, let’s take a financial institution – but I need to emphasize that not just speed is imperative for integrating “Big Data” into daily decision-making, availability and security are top priorities as well – no other industry stands to gain more from big data than financial services – the industry thrives on data: transactions, rate changes, customer interactions, risk assessment, portfolio investments and more. A delay of two minutes could be detrimental in catching an ongoing fraudulent transaction, meeting regulatory requirements or losing millions of dollars.

Big data simply allows financial institutions to run their business better, and SAP Sybase IQ 16 can help it run more efficiently and faster.

This informative Q&A round set the stage for more detailed presentations that followed through the lunch hour. If you missed it, you can still get access to the special offers KloudData presented at this session.

Safeguard the 3 P’s for Organizational Success: Product, Planet and Profit Posted by on Fri, May 3rd, 2013

SAP-EHSIt’s no secret that business is predominantly driven by one thing – Profit. Without it, it’s hard to stay afloat and, well, remain in business (literally). The variable that separates you from your competition is in the product you’re offering. Great products have a much better chance of being noticed, and backed if they are just that, great. Focus on offering the best product you can produce, invest in strong marketing and management, and drive the bottom line northward.

The final piece of the puzzle is steeped in the green initiative that all conscious customers are checking into in today’s industry landscape. How is your product affecting the planet on which we reside? Are you thinking about the environment? You should be for two reasons. The first? People care and are – more than ever – getting behind companies that keep the environment and its protection as a focal point in their core operative strategy. It matters. The second? Quite literally stems from the first. Without a planet we have no more business to conduct. Without a planet, we have nothing. It’s that simple.

A great product hence also needs to be environmentally friendly and compliant with the numerous global regulations governing material safety. KloudData is helping companies organize and automate their dangerous goods management initiative and compliance with the vital and robust SAP EHS software solution.
