The need for #mobile tech innovation has driven NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital back into the application development business. #EHR vendors too busy coping with government regulation, not moving fast enough.

Microsoft previews six powerful new add-on features for the cloud-based Power BI service. Maybe they don't want IBM Watson Analytics stealing the self-service limelight.
Microsoft beta tests Power BI dashboards, visualizations, connectors, and an iPad app just as IBM launches a rival cloud-based BI service.

A good #Toastmasters club website helps bring in new members (where a poor one may turn them away). The first impression is often the one you make online. For all the proactive outreach we do, most people find our clubs through a web search or a zip code search on toastmasters.org, and they may look at a few club websites before deciding which meeting to attend (or whether to do it at all).

You want them to come to your club, of course, but most of all you want to present a welcoming and dynamic picture of what we learn and the friends we make in Toastmasters.

Watson's commercial spinoffs to date have lacked anthropomorphic sex appeal, but five new cloud services will let developers build cognitive apps that can hear, talk, and reason like the Jeopardy-winning Watson.
IBM Watson developer cloud adds speech-to-text, text-to-speech, visual recognition, and decision services. Will businesses build their own Jeopardy apps?

Story
Introduction
I'm the editor of InformationWeek Healthcare and the author of Social Collaboration for Dummies (Oct. 2013), a guide to the use of social media and social networking in business.

At InformationWeek, I previously covered social business and technologies for education (both of which I continue to write about as time allows). As part of the promotion for my book, I'm currently seeking speaking opportunities related to social collaboration and social business.
