QUINCY, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Dr. Steven A. Nielsen, a board-certified Boston eye doctor, is committed to providing the best medical care while maintaining a leadership position in ophthalmology. In order to achieve this mission, Dr. Nielsen is continually involved in eye care clinical research trials that assist in the discovery and delivery of new medicines, therapies, and technology to the eye care community. These trials pertain to a range of research topics such as glaucoma, antibiotics, allergies, novel therapies for dry eye, diabetic retinopathy, cataracts (multi-focal and toric intraocular lenses), and refractive technologies.
Dr. Nielsen engages in this ongoing research as part of his commitment to advance the quality of patient care and decrease the impact of eye diseases and impairments. By staying at the innovative front of eye health and participating in the advancement of surgical procedures, new devices, lenses, and therapies, Dr. Nielsen is able to offer his patients cutting-edge technology and state-of-the-art care. His goal is to continue to offer new therapies and help advance care for future generations at the Nielsen Eye Center, his Boston LASIK practice.
According to Dr. Nielsen, population growth in conjunction with increased life expectancy has amplified the need for improved eye care and vision correction procedures such as laser eye surgery and cataract surgery. Dr. Nielsen believes healthy eyesight is critical to a good quality of life. There are diseases such as glaucoma and diabetic retinopathy that continue to deprive people of their eyesight and his hope is that through assisting the advancement of these therapies, he can help prevent those losses. Dr. Nielsen is currently conducting a study on cataracts to help eliminate the difficulties in driving, reading a computer screen, color distinction, and seeing at night caused by blurry vision. He also has several other clinical research studies being conducted at his practice including glaucoma, cataracts, and diabetic retinopathy.

There’s Big Data, then there’s really Big Data from the Internet of Things. IoT is evolving to include many data possibilities like new types of event, log and network data. The volumes are enormous, generating tens of billions of logs per day, which raise data challenges. Early IoT deployments are relying heavily on both the cloud and managed service providers to navigate these challenges. Learn about IoT, Big Data and deployments processing massive data volumes from wearables, utilities and ot...

The IoT market is projected to be $1.9 trillion tidal wave that’s bigger than the combined market for smartphones, tablets and PCs. While IoT is widely discussed, what not being talked about are the monetization opportunities that are created from ubiquitous connectivity and the ensuing avalanche of data. While we cannot foresee every service that the IoT will enable, we should future-proof operations by preparing to monetize them with extremely agile systems.

The major cloud platforms defy a simple, side-by-side analysis. Each of the major IaaS public-cloud platforms offers their own unique strengths and functionality. Options for on-site private cloud are diverse as well, and must be designed and deployed while taking existing legacy architecture and infrastructure into account. Then the reality is that most enterprises are embarking on a hybrid cloud strategy and programs. In this Power Panel at 15th Cloud Expo (http://www.CloudComputingExpo.com...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...
