Our presenter will be placing the spotlight on MediMizer Web Work Order, Dashboard Reporting, and interfaces such as medTester, Datrend vPad and Fluke Ansur.
MediMizer CMMS for biomedical and hospital facilities compliance is now running on Windows 10. All aspects including work requests, web dashboard and web work orders are running in Windows 10. We will continue to test the new Windows 10 updates, now automatic, as they arrive.
Windows 10 simplifies the start screen that would cover your desktop. Now you can use a small little popup or make it larger. So it can look like Windows 7 or Windows 8.
You can also run our web apps in the Edge browser.
I just returned from Dreamforce. Dreamforce is hosted in San Francisco and was attended by 150,000 people interested in cloud computing. I attended a number of sessions which opened my eyes to new development. One session was on phone and device apps. The message was make them small and an app is not a tiny version of a computer. Apps need to meet just the immediate customer need.
Dreamforce was about programming in the cloud. Speaking to one of our hospitals about the cloud, the equipment manager said, “we just invested 35 million dollars in our storage, I don’t think they are looking to move data off site”.
MediMizer, Inc. has polled hospitals many years, and we have found up to now, Microsoft SQL Server is the preferred method of storing data. Sites also have Oracle but find SQL more affordable.
More and more, our users are storing data on virtual servers. I am wondering if SQL and virtual servers will become more like the cloud in allowing secure commands to cross the entire structure, making it easier to gather data from many sources without compromising security.
MediMizer will be keeping an eye on new storage technology and how we can take advantage of it.

MediMizer joined leaders from Accruent (Formerly Four Rivers TMS), AIMS, Mainspring (formerly St. Croix WOSYS) on a panel to answer questions about changes in CMMS platforms. Topics and comments included user groups, model-based data, manufacturer inspection checklists, integration with SAP, SQL and other vendors, training, employee retention, risk evaluation, HIPAA, end-user interfaces, customization, reporting, working paperless and barcode scanning. The discussion was very well moderated with most questions coming from the audience. [Returned for 2015 Summit]
