The announcement from Microsoft is already public here:
Microsoft Health Users Group Celebrates Recipients of 2014 Innovation Awards at HIMSS

“São João Hospital and DevScope developed and implemented the VITAL – SurVeillance, MoniToring and ALert solution based on Microsoft’s business intelligence capabilities, including SQL Server 2012 Enterprise Edition, across the hospital to help analyze and correlate the massive amounts of patient data housed and spread within its several systems. The solution automatically identifies, scores, and promptly alerts hospital staff about patients at risk for clinical deterioration, helping staff address the situation where possible. It is also able to anticipate 30 percent of intensive care unit (ICU) admissions and 50 percent of non-intensive care unit (ICU) inpatient deaths within seven days before the event.”

We are proud to be part of this team and this is yet another recognition for the results that we have been witnessing year after year.

Look forward to inspire others to do more, with less: Go BI Team!

BizTalk Summit 2014 – London

On March 3rd and 4th, BizTalk Summit event will be back to London even bigger and better! The stage will be shared by 12 Microsoft Integration MVP’s from 10 different countries (UK, USA, Canada, Sweden, Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Belgium, Norway and India) and 4 Microsoft product group members as key speakers. There are 200 attendees expected from 19 countries and close to 100 companies represented at the event.

DevScope will be present with Sandro Pereira. This year Sandro is teaching BizTalk Mapping Patterns and also doing an introduction to the future cloud-based Windows Azure BizTalk Services Maps.

After many years of integration projects, we have found multiple ways to solve the same problems. Sandro prepared 14 different scenarios, each describing one set of problems (Pattern) and how to address these common message transformation challenges (Options, Implications and Best Practices).

– Which achieves the best performance? Is my message so big that I really need to worry about performance? Do I really need high performance?

– Can I easily maintain this map? It is easy to read and understand? What the estimated effort to change it, debug, finding and fixing problems?

– What are the expertise levels required to create and maintain this map approach? How long will it take to implement?

BizTalk Summit 2014 – London is an event organized by BizTalk360 (Kovai Limited) with co-operation from Microsoft Product Group, Microsoft UK and some Microsoft Integration MVP’s.
