Why Processing is Imperative

Posted by on

In data analytics, incremental processing for the aggregation is very important. When we want to serve real time data, we can not run over the old data and newly added data to calculate the overall aggregate. This makes incremental processing the first priority for real time data analytics. This in turn requires processing over the structured dataset. In this article I will try to compare some of the MPP(Massively Parallel Processing) architectures in this light.

Agile Process: A Brief Introduction

Posted by on

Traditionally, most software development has been done in an ad-hoc manner: in a code and fix style, and without a clear and consistent set of rules to drive the development effort. The ad-hoc manner has brought about chaos in the development process, leading to many problems that plague the software industry today. There have been countless cases of software failures that have sometimes proved to be fatal – largely attributable to a chaotic style of development. Owing to the lack of a consistent process, budget overruns and schedule overruns have been the norm in many software firms.

Patient Centered Medical Home Software

Posted by on

Our client was seeking to implement a patient-centered medical homes program for the Medicaid Provider network it was developing.
