- Having a local Authorized Toshiba Dealer to install, configure, program, train and provide service for the system; and
- Empowering employees to communicate more effectively with the center's clients, families and each other.
Patrick Orr, sales manager at Authorized Toshiba Dealer smplsolutions (www.smplsolutions.com/toshibasolutions) of Lake Forest, Calif., recommended Toshiba's IPedge. He said, "Toshiba's IPedge delivers the reliability and features desired by New Method Wellness in an affordable, easy-to-use system." smplsolutions has been an Authorized Toshiba Dealer since 2001.

Eighty percent of a data scientist’s time is spent gathering and cleaning up data, and 80% of all data is unstructured and almost never analyzed. Cognitive computing, in combination with Big Data, is changing the equation by creating data reservoirs and using natural language processing to enable analysis of unstructured data sources. This is impacting every aspect of the analytics profession from how data is mined (and by whom) to how it is delivered. This is not some futuristic vision: it's ha...
