For the past several years, the IT industry has been re-ordered, driven by simultaneous developments in data, analytics, cloud, mobile, social media, and the Internet of Things. At the same time, business leaders have shifted their reliance upon gut instinct for decision making to new forms of business value by becoming data-driven, which is enabling them to reinvent professions and transform their industry with data. Together, these shifts, underpinned by a foundation on data-driven insights are propelling companies into the next business era, where they interact with data to reason, adapt and continuously learn. Once again, IBM is leading the world to this new era of computing: the cognitive era. An era where all data is turned from obstacle to opportunity, and where we can tackle some of the most enduring systemic issues facing our planet in an iterative and rapid fashion. These issues range from cancer and climate change to an increasingly interconnected global economy

Eccovia Launches ClientInsight, an AI-Powered Data Warehouse to Improve Social Service Delivery

Eccovia | July 26, 2022

Eccovia, a leading provider of cloud-based SaaS solutions for the health and human services sector, announces the release of an unprecedented data warehouse and community-analytics platform, ClientInsight. ClientInsight is hosted in Microsoft Azure and is a premier solution for data quality, performance, and actionable insights. Since the COVID-19 pandemic began, our nation’s most vulnerable populations have faced adverse outcomes to their social determinants of health. In addition to a new pathogen in the public, domestic violence increased, as did homelessness. Data availability became a national topic of conversation as COVID-19 case counts rose, and there was never a greater need for increased access to timely data in the realm of social services. We now know the result of data that is incomplete, siloed, or “stale.” Data has to be available when needed, and the inequities in data availability were highlighted by the pandemic, as were the needs to address systemic issues in care coordination. With the launch of ClientInsight, social-services dashboards and data from across communities can integrate into a single source of truth, leading to a more holistic approach to addressing the needs of vulnerable populations, true coordinated entry, and effective care coordination. ”ClientInsight is really the first-ever platform that will be able to help tie organizational data, collected every single day, to outcomes and progress that providers hope and expect to see. This is a true gamechanger that will allow community providers to set and meet more ambitious goals in their respective fights to end society’s most pressing issues.” CEO, Carl Champagne Data-privacy laws require secure access points to client data, yet networks that serve multiple populations must be able to share this data between organizations for care coordination. ClientInsight closes the gap between data privacy and care coordination, allowing providers to serve their clients' needs with a more knowledgeable, integrated level of care. About Eccovia Eccovia provides industry-leading software platforms for case management and community care coordination for state agencies, community-based providers, and other human-service entities. The platforms help caseworkers and care providers collaborate across physical, behavioral, economic, and social determining factors that impact individual and community health outcomes.

Solidatus, a leading data management technology firm, announced that CEO and Co-Founder Philip Dutton will be co-presenting a session with Eric Hirschhorn, Chief Data Officer at Bank of New York Mellon, at Gartner Data and Analytics Summit in Orlando, Florida. The presentation will highlight how the Solidatus solution is transforming data management at the world's largest custodian bank, which manages $43 trillion of client assets. "We think this conference is a great opportunity to expand on what is meant by 'data blueprints'. It's an important concept that underpins what Solidatus brings to its users," said Dutton. "I'm delighted to be joined by a visionary from a globally significant bank who'll be able to show how our theory has become his reality. I'll discuss the conceptual 'what you can do'; Eric will be showing 'what we – or they – are doing'." "Data is key to everything we do at BNY Mellon. Ensuring we have proper data governance is essential to how we operate. Solidatus is helping us extend and integrate the metadata repositories we use to maintain our market leading data complex. I am looking forward to discussing the challenges in our industry around this space and how Solidatus is helping BNY Mellon drive better data outcomes," said Hirschhorn. Solidatus' growing global footprint led to opening the company's new US headquarters in Houston, Texas, to expedite Solidatus' ambitious expansion plans in North America. Launched in London in 2017, the firm's initial focus was on helping make data easier to work with for businesses in the UK/EMEA. Since then, the company has become entrenched in four of the top 10 Global Systemically Important Banks (G-SIBs). Dutton was appointed CEO earlier this month, having been Co-CEO since Solidatus' inception. Dutton and Hirschhorn are scheduled to speak at Gartner Data and Analytics Summit on 22 August at 6:15 pm EDT during 'How data blueprints deliver sustainable business value – with Solidatus & BNY Mellon'. For further information, those in attendance at the summit can visit Solidatus at booth 217, where Dutton and his team can field your questions. About the Gartner Data & Analytics Summit The Gartner Data & Analytics Summit provides insights for data and analytics leaders to enable a data-and-analytics-centric culture within their organizations by tying strategy to business outcomes and promoting the adoption of technologies, such as artificial intelligence (AI), while creating a resilient culture that accelerates change and where data literacy, digital trust, governance and data-driven critical thinking are pervasive.
