Misys Delivers on Promise to Release Open Source Code at Southern California Linux Expo

NEW YORK, February 7 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Misys plc , the global application software and services company announced today that it will release components of proprietary source code to the open source community at the Southern California Linux Expo (Scale), in Los Angeles on February 8. Scale signifies Misys' first conference appearance into the open source arena.

"In October 2007, we announced our intention to release the Misys Connect Healthcare solution to the open source community and now we're delivering on our promise," said Bob Barthelmes, Executive Vice President and General Manager of the newly created Open Source Solutions division at Misys. "We've been focusing on forming partnerships that will (eventually) advance the collaborative development and quality of new products and reduce the price of software. We hope to improve healthcare delivery. That's our goal," said Bob.

To lead the company's vision, Misys has chosen former IBM executive and healthcare business developer Tim Elwell to position Misys at the nucleus of the healthcare open source development debate. "Working with the open source community will require a leader who has integrity and supports the open source requirement of transparency and who can lead as well as support a community of innovators in an important attempt to improve healthcare delivery. Tim will excel in this role," said Bob Barthelmes.

Under the direction of new Development Director Ryan Bloom, Misys plans to release additional code and product roadmaps in the Spring. Misys also plans to work with the open source community to attack the complex issues of systems interoperability. As a founder of the Apache Portable Runtime project and a major contributor to the Apache HTTPd 2.0 project, Ryan brings solid open source credentials to the Misys team.

Misys will also demonstrate the utility of the Open Connect product later this month at Healthcare's Information Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference in Orlando.

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
