Small to medium sized businesses (SMBs) face the need for integration in order to keep business processes running smoothly and cost effectively. Integration of both on-premise and cloud based applications and services is essential, and connecting to the cloud is crucial for a growing business. As an SMB, it is vital to find an integration solution that not only presents a superior time to ROI, but also one which is high performing and cost effective. Most importantly, SMBs need an integration solution with the flexibility and scalability to grow with them as their business changes.


Through role-based productivity & insights, SMBs can draw insight from a vast amount of business-related data and maximize the productivity of workers. Capabilities include real-time analytics, which offers rich statistical and analysis packages for data mining, discovery, and reporting for diverse information faculties-customers, and complex event processing, via capabilities of Big Data Analytics on cloud or on premise, and using Complex Event Processing technology. Differing software tools and systems that workers use daily should be seamlessly integrated to allow for continuous importing and exporting of business data from one system to another in order to complete workflows. They should also be able to perform detailed ad-hoc data analysis and other business intelligence functions on their own and without, for example, having to define a report and request their IT to provide it for them using powerful, easy-to-use tools like Dashboards, Scorecards, KPI and custom reports, and in-memory fast access information. These principles also include methods for storage and master data management of repositories to capture and enable analysis of operational and business data – located on-premise, in the cloud, or a hybrid mixture of both.

By understanding enhanced user experience, the host Healthcare Company understands how participants experience the world and how technology fits into that experience. New technologies take advantage of rich user experience, intuitiveness and ease of use across a multitude of devices – from smart phones and tablets to PCs and expansive operations command centers. New programming technologies, such as Windows Presentation Foundation, Silverlight or HTML 5, are opening new possibilities for applications in the business domains that run on many form factors. Intuitive interfaces now feature rich, composite dashboards and are accessible from mobile devices. These interfaces also incorporate natural human interaction with the software allowing workers to use gestures, voice, and touch.

Collaboration allows people to work together more closely, coordinate their efforts, follow detailed business processes, and respond to events as they happen. The Healthcare industry will require even-greater collaboration to account for a globalized and evolving workforce, as well as increasingly complex and mission-critical exploration and production. Communications technology is keeping pace with today’s global and on-demand collaboration – including real-time communication networks, mobility, Web conference, voice over IP (VoIP), and of course, social media. Dss Solutions Collaboration services framework support them by utilizing Microsoft technologies that may include Lync, SharePoint and Office 365.

For the framework to successfully deliver cost-effective, integrative benefits, it must enable comprehensive interoperability – both on-premise and in the cloud. As a result, features including industry standards along with published interfaces and information models are of critical importance. Connected, agile businesses require solutions that integrate the workflows of the business workers and the systems they use, their process and procedures, and the information those workers create and manage as part of their work-day across all the upstream systems they interact with.

Dss Solutions offers many partner tools and technologies to help solve the interoperability issues for our customers. Many of these tools and technologies follow open industry standards, such as Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP), OData and Web services. Some of the technologies offer data-based integration and others offer document-based integration or a hybrid of both. Some of the tools that Dss Solutions utilized and offered by Microsoft that support a Connected Business include BizTalk Server, Windows Azure Service Bus, Windows Communication Foundation.

The framework Guiding Principles capture the need of an underlying technical infrastructure that at the foundational level enables many business processes. Principles of this infrastructure include scalable support for more users, larger models, and increased transaction volumes; securely deployed components, functionality, and information protected from unauthorized access or malicious attacks; and services that are location agnostic for anywhere deployment and which can be accessed on any device. Integration through messaging and database technology links together workflow, processes, and data optimization. Domain-specific infrastructure incorporates trade-specific infrastructure connections using unified communications to manage enterprise security. A secure, scalable, high-performance infrastructure should also take advantage of global high availability, app and data marketplaces and software as a service.

The integration challenges SMBs face are crucial to overcome in order for the businesses to focus more time on their core business processes, rather than on integration. Appointing a team to manage integrations for your small business is not only expensive, it is very inefficient. Custom integrations restrict business, as changes in the custom code are hard to implement, making it more difficult for your company to scale according to your business needs in the long run. Additionally, because the custom code is often maintained by a small group of developers, when those developers depart from the company, the knowledge surrounding the custom integrations depart as well - leaving your business vulnerable.

Predictive analytics has the potential to transform traditional small to medium businesses (SMBs). SMBs have the same desire to take better advantage of their data assets through predictive analytics, but the process with which strategic value can be gleaned is significantly different from the large company. Large public companies and well-funded Silicon Valley start-ups hire staffs of Ph.D. statisticians, computer scientists or even physicists, all highly-paid scientists who find patterns in data and translate them into useful business information. SMBs on the other hand, aren’t able to assemble a data science department. Instead, an outside consultant engages company domain experts and IT personnel to extract and clean data from available silos. Analytics-as-a-service can offer the same actionable results as an in-house team. The end point is the same, whether large company or SMB.

Predictive analytics for the SMB can become a vital competitive force by creating new business and drive increased sales. Data-driven companies tend to be better performers with respect to objective measures of operational and financial results. Data-driven decisions tend to be better decisions. Using predictive analytics enables managers to strategize on the basis of evidence rather than pure intuition. Utilizing corporate data assets more strategically leads to better predictions, and better predictions yield better decisions. For example, effective analytics allows the SMB to be quicker and more precise with its promotions like a retailer using a predictive model to optimize returns on advertising spending. The promotions tend to be of higher quality because they’re more granular, and more personalized, and timelier.

Solutions Competitive Edge: Predictive analytics is a decisive competitive asset in many industries and a core element in the effort of all organizations to improve performance. Performance improvements and competitive advantage arise from classification models that allow decision makers to predict and optimize outcomes. The most effective approach to building a model rarely starts with the data; instead it originates with identifying the business opportunity and determining how the model can improve performance. With predictive analytics, decision makers can measure, and hence identify, radically more about their businesses, and directly translate that knowledge into improved decision making, increased performance, and greater opportunities for competitive advantage.
