COLD SPRING, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/05/14 -- By now, it is common knowledge that a website is one of the most essential marketing tools across all businesses and industries; healthcare is no exception. For healthcare professionals, a well-designed website enhances the patient-provider relationship by creating accessibility for the patient to the provider. Leader in medical marketing, medical web design, and medical logo design Aurora Information Technology (Aurora IT) knows that to make a website a valuable asset to your online marketing campaign it needs to be a mobile-friendly, responsive design.

Specializing in medical marketing and medical website development, they understand the needs of their healthcare clients, and have optimized the marketing outreach of practices of all specialties and sizes.

"When considering marketing, we need to consider the human factors of the market," explains Daniel Gilbert, CEO and Founder of Aurora IT. "How can we reach out to that market? Where is the market most comfortable? We need to create a platform that is receivable -- and the answer is responsive design."

How are patients accessing your website?
In a 2013 study, 63 percent of adults reported using their cell phones to go online. One year later, another study found that mobile devices account for 55 percent of internet usage in the United States. Looking at these statistics, the use of mobile devices for internet activity is becoming a new standard.

"In our industry, adaptability on all levels is essential," explains Gilbert. "Today, it's clear that mobile-friendly website design is requirement for success. A website that doesn't work on a phone or tablet is as good as a closed door."

Does your medical website "work" on a cell phone?
Responsive design automatically makes adjustments to your web page proportions so that they can be viewed from any device. These automatic adjustments translate the design and functionality of your website for optimal usability. In the simplest terms, responsive design means your website will look good and "work" on a cell phone or tablet. Backed by the reliability of Bitrix CMS, Aurora's clients can rest assured that they are receiving top performance in a cutting-edge marketplace.

Having a website that is consistent and user-friendly will prove to be a more efficient tool in your marketing campaign.

We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smar...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud?
