Regeringen har slagit fast att Sverige ska vara världsbäst på e-hälsa 2025.Nu är det sju år kvar och frågan är vad som egentligen pågår.Men tre stora upphandlingar är i full gång – Västra Götalandsregionen, Region Skåne och en gemensam upphandling av landstingen i Västerbotten, Sörmland, Blekinge, Västernorrland och Örebro län.Vid årsskiftet räknar Region Skåne att vara klar med sin upphandling och sedan är planen att de andra ska droppa in vartefter.Överklaganden kan visserligen göra att införandet av de nya systemen drar ut på tiden men om ungefär två år är det dags för en big bang.– Jag tror kanske inte att vi riktigt förstår omfattningen av det hela, säger han.

This month marks exactly 181 years since the first advertisement was ever published.The ad in question appeared in the French newspaper, La Presse, and other papers quickly began following suit.For the first time in history, businesses were using “content” distributed to a large audience to formally promote their products and services.Clearly a lot of time has passed since that initial ad in 1836, but has our approach to content evolved at a similar pace?True, many advancements have been made in the way we deliver content and marketers have gotten better at attempting to deliver meaningful insights to their audience.But, one thing that many marketers still haven’t been able to nail, is creating a great content experience.

We’ve compiled some of the coolest custom Switches and accessories from around the globe.Mario Pipe Joy-Con holder with storage spaceIt won’t charge your Joy-Cons, but this 3D-printed pipe dock comes with built-in storage space and a classic Mario figure, which sits at the top.He did the same thing to the body of the Switch dock, too, opting for a rich red, accented with the golden controllers.The old-school controls are just for show, however, that is an actual Switch nestled within the confines of the cabinet display.Although other players have encouraged Biocen to get the buttons working, he’s declined to do so.

Nano Server to go containers-only, Server Core pushed for all other workloadsPoll Windows Server and System Center will soon receive twice-yearly updates and come in two “channels”, one for the latest stuff and another less-frequently-updated channel.Microsoft's explanation suggests the new arrangement represents “cloud cadence” while its announcement says this is all about enabling faster innovation while also aligning updates for Windows Server, System Center, desktop Windows and Office so they all land at once in a predictable twice-yearly rush.This new policy means Windows Server will now come in a “Long-term Servicing Channel” that Microsoft is akin to the current way you buy Windows Server – a big bang upgrade every three years or so as a service pack or full new version lands, complete with lots of fixes and new features.This channel will get monthly security updates plus Microsoft's usual support, which currently has a 16-year horizon for Windows Server.The “Semi-annual Channel” will get new functionality every six months, but will only be supported for 18 months.

I thoroughly enjoyed Pillars of Eternity, but there’s no doubt Obsidian played it safe.It was every part the Baldur’s Gate successor Obsidian promised in its Kickstarter pitch, not the most generic of fantasy worlds but certainly a recognizable parallel to the Sword Coast.Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire sees Obsidian moving away from that comfort zone into something bigger and bolder.We got a hands-off look at the game during E3 this week, and while Obsidian was fairly tight-lipped about story elements, in scope it looks like as big a shift as Baldur’s Gate to Baldur’s Gate II.You can see the same presentation I saw by watching the video below—though you’ll lack an Obsidian developer talking you through it and adding context.I’m picturing something like Wasteland 2’s dynamic Arizona desert, locations popping up as you travel, though this wasn’t demoed to us.

The collaboration software startup Slack Technologies has attracted the attention of major technology companies including Amazon.com, according to reports from Bloomberg.The possible $9 billion deal is pure speculation at the moment, with neither Amazon or Slack having made any formal comment regarding a possible takeover.According to sources cited by Bloomberg, nothing has yet been agreed and that negotiations could be dropped regarding the takeover at any time.Slack has been experiencing strong growth following a 2016 funding round that raked in $200 million, with the company now standing at a valuation close to $4 billion.This growth has undoubtedly drawn considerable interest from big players in the market.These big players could perhaps be driving factors behind the possible interest from Amazon if speculations prove to be legitimate.

Card-not-present fraud leads other types of payment fraud in countries that have migrated to the EMV standard.That is according to U.S. Payments Forum, a nonprofit organization that includes global payments networks, financial institutions, merchants, processors, and other industry participants.Second is that companies — networks, institutions, merchants — can be slow to adopt the right combination of fraud tools to adequately protect all parties.Static verifications systems alone do not pass muster, as bad actors are quick to find ways to steal, hack, or spoof.While traditional, static tools require the user to submit information — such as addresses and other unique data — they do not prove that the user actually has any association to it.When used alone, these tools fail to adequately deter fraud.

De stora beställarna har tacksamt nyttjat fördelarna med konsultmäklare och centraliserade inköp för att förenkla, spara pengar och jobba mer processorienterat.Kan det till och med vara dyrare i längden med prispressen om arbetet inte når upp till ställda krav?Priserna pressas och konkurrensen om konsulterna gör att konsultbolagen säljer det som finns på bänken även om matchningen inte är 100 procent rätt.De mest eftertraktade konsulterna lyckas ofta förhandla sig till priser utanför ramavtalens begränsningar så frågan är om trenden har vänt?Kommer beställarna vända Zerochaos och Ework ryggen och skapa egna system för att säkra upp bästa inköp?Det hade jag gjort för att säkra kvaliteten i leverans om jag var kund på marknaden idag.

Osa ulkomaalaisia palkanneista siivousalan yrityksistä teettää töitä alipalkalla.Etelä-Suomen aluehallintoviraston ulkomaalaisvalvonta teki viime vuonna siivousalan työpaikoille 132 tarkastusta.Raportin mukaan 52 prosentissa tarkastetuista yrityksistä oli puutteita palkanmaksussa.Alimmat tuntipalkat jäivät vain 5 euroon, joka on vain puolet alan työehtosopimuksen vähimmäispalkasta.Aluehallintoviraston tarkastaja Joni Mäki kertoo, että selvityksen alipalkattujen työntekijöiden oleskelulupa saattaa olla kiinni työnantajasta.Alipalkkaus saattaa johtua myös puhtaasta tietämättömyydestä, Mäki kertoo.

We’re in the midst of a podcast renaissance, marked by new shows about everything from true crime to improvisational comedy.In fact, 67 million people listen to at least one podcast per month, according to research.They don’t know much about their listeners beyond basic gender, age and location demographics associated with a download.Most of these ads were formatted similarly to native ads in print – hidden in the context of the show, itself, rather than playing as a recorded advertisement.Hosts who deliver ads as part of their show lend brands an added level of authenticity from the rapport they have built with their dedicated audience.As a result, endorsements from hosts have proven ROI.
