Popularity certainly isn’t the only factor when choosing a content management system (CMS), but a quick look at the statistics shows that WordPress certainly has that base covered. In 2011, WordPress was used on 14.7% of the top 1 million sites worldwide. At that time, there were about 500,000 WordPress posts each day. According to Technorati, 48 of the top 100 blogs were using WordPress, and it was translated into 40 languages. Still today, WordPress is a massive presence on the Internet.
As we all know, technology moves fast. Cloud, which first started to gain prominence in 2006, has been gathering speed ever since. According to a forecast from Global Industry Analysts, Inc. (GIA), the worldwide market for cloud hardware alone will exceed $79 billion by 2018. Cloud has become so widespread behind the scenes that the vast majority of people probably have no idea how much they are relying on the technology.
Cloud computing and enterprise mobility management (EMM) are a perfect combination. A Cloud Hosting option can enable easier deployment, security, and control of EMM scenarios, particularly bring-your-own-device (BYOD).

Cloud computing and the gradual transition to a work environment without walls are related trends that create opportunities for businesses. Using cloud, companies can develop a stronger competitive edge and streamline their businesses with mobile, as long as they adopt strong and secure management of their employees’ devices.
You need to be compliant with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act if you are a covered entity or business associate. Business associates are a catch-all group that includes any company performing a service for covered entities that exposes it to protected health information (electronic health records or other data). Covered entities include health care providers, health care plans, and health care clearinghouses.
If you’re looking at IT requirements for healthcare systems, a term that you will come across repeatedly is “HIPAA compliance.” This article talks about what HIPAA is, summarizes the basic HIPAA compliance rules, and briefly addresses a related act, HITECH.
We all want simplicity, but there’s no getting around the fact that compliance with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 is complicated. However, you can use a couple of checklists along with penetration testing of your system to verify that you have hit all the bases.
Is it a good idea for a software developer to get certified for HIPAA? Not necessarily. However, if you want to take advantage of the astronomical growth that healthcare will experience through the end of the decade, then you might want to look into it. Five obstacles that you will encounter are discussed below.
A critical concern when exploring hosting solutions is deciding whether you want to go with the innovative, newer option or to stick with the traditional model. Public Cloud Server Hosting has grown astronomically in recent years. Perhaps 2014 was the year that cloud graduated from test projects and startups to enterprise acceptance, with General Electric announcing that it was already running 90% of new applications through the public cloud.
One of the problems with our increasingly technological world is that the speed at which our devices and services upgrade and make older versions obsolete can be dizzying. It feels like only an instant before the latest smartphone or flatscreen TV is being replaced with the bigger, better, faster model.
The same holds true in the world of hosting, data information, and server management. And while it can be tough to keep up for any type of business, it’s crucially important if your company is involved with health care IT and has to maintain HIPAA Compliance.
