Medical Informatics Rob is currently the Corporate Team Lead for Product Technology Development at PartnersHealthcare Center for Connected Health Rob is passionate about technology and its potential to significantly improve the outcomes of our healthcare system His unique combination of experience understanding the science the business and the technical aspects of healthcare allow him to approach problems from a variety of perspectives Rob explains after starting a career in a new industry the Brandeis Health and Medical Informatics program gave me the knowledge and insights I needed to quickly understand and tackle the challenges facing healthcare Rob notes that interacting with faculty and students from around the country and around the world provided him valuable diversity of opinions about the real issues we face on a daily basis The flexible format of Brandeis GPS courses enabled him to focus on both his career and education at the same time He was able to immediately apply his classroom learning to his job In an academic medical environment education is highly valued everyone has letters An example of Rob s photography after their name Adding the MS along with the Brandeis name has generated new opportunities for me within my organization Outside of his career Rob enjoys photography his motorcycle blogging and spending time with his daughter Rob currently lives in central Massachusetts Cloud Computing and the OpenStack Advantage May 13 2014 cchatell 4 Comments by Nagendra Nyamgondalu Senior Engineering Manager at IBM India and Brandeis Graduate Professional Studies Master of Software Engineering Alum It was only a few years back that most IT managers I spoke to would smirk when they heard the term cloud in a conversation They either didn t believe that cloud computing would be viable for their businesses IT needs or were skeptical about the maturity of the technology And rightly so But a lot has changed since then The technology tools and services available for businesses considering adoption of a public cloud setting up their own private cloud or treading the middle path of a hybrid one has made rapid strides Now the same IT managers are very focused on deploying workloads and applications on the cloud for cost reduction and improved efficiency Businesses today have the choice of consuming Infrastructure as a service IaaS Platform as a service PaaS and Software as a service SaaS As you can imagine these models map directly to the building blocks of a typical data center Servers storage and networks form the infrastructure on top of which the required platforms are built such as databases application servers or web servers and tools for design and development Once the two foundational layers are in place the applications that provide the actual business value can be run on top While all three models are indisputable parts of the bigger picture that is Cloud Computing I have chosen to focus on IaaS here After all infrastructure is the first step to a successful IT deployment Essentially IaaS is the ability to control and automate pools of resources be it compute storage network or others and provision it on demand Delivering IaaS requires technology that provides efficient and quick provisioning smart scheduling for deployment of virtual machines and workloads support for most hardware and of course true scalability OpenStack is an open source framework founded by Rackspace Hosting and NASA that takes a community approach to make all this possible It was designed with scalability and elasticity as the overarching theme and a share nothing distribute everything approach This enables OpenStack to be horizontally scalable and asynchronous Since inception the community has grown to a formidable number with many technology vendors such as IBM Cisco Intel HP and others embracing it The undoubted advantage that a community based approach brings especially to something like IaaS is the extensive support for a long list of devices and cloud standards When a new type of storage or a next generation network switch is introduced to the market the vendors have a lot to gain by contributing support drivers for their offerings to the community Similar support for proprietary technology has dependencies on customer demand and the competitive dynamics amongst the vendors this almost always results in delayed support if that While proprietary versus open source is always a debate the innovation and cost benefits that open alternatives have provided in the recent years has clearly made CIOs take notice Support for a variety of hypervisors Open APIs support for object or block storage and the mostly self sufficient management capabilities are some of the common themes I hear on why businesses are increasingly adapting OpenStack Additionally the distributed architecture of OpenStack where each component such as Compute Network Storage Security runs as a separate process connected via a lightweight message broker makes it easy for ISVs looking to build value adds on top of the stack All the right ingredients for a complete cloud management solution for IaaS Most IT managers dream of the day when every request for infrastructure is satisfied instantly by the click of a button regardless of the type being requested workloads run smoothly and fail over seamlessly when there is a need to resource usage is constantly optimal and adding additional hardware to the pool is a smooth exercise Business managers dream of the day when they have instant access to the infrastructure needed to run their brand new application and once it is up it stays up Aaah Utopia The good news is it is possible here and now Nagendra Nyamgondalu is a Senior Engineering Manager at IBM in India He is a 2003 graduate from Brandeis University Graduate Professional Studies Master of Software Engineering Program How to Think Like the World s Most Successful Entrepreneurs May 8 2014 cchatell 7 Comments Original Post http bostinno streetwise co 2014 05 06 how to be a successful entrepreneur From Steve Jobs to Ariana Huffington entrepreneurs are the movers and shakers of our modern world transforming ideas into empires and concepts into cultures While anyone can claim to have the next great business idea an extraordinary few can translate those ideas into a viable business That requires much more than a single stroke of brilliance it takes a unique blend of boldness passion and business know how that not too many possess There is no step by step formula to successfully launching and leading your own venture Every entrepreneur has his or her own unique business philosophy and strategies for success But it seems there are a few overarching hallmarks of a great entrepreneur If you re itching to start your own company and create game changing innovations start taking notes Here are seven habits of successful entrepreneurs Adopt these habits and hopefully you ll start thinking and earning like a successful entrepreneur 1 Act first think second Successful entrepreneurs are not afraid to take risks They are quick to act even in face of great uncertainty Rather than spending exorbitant time analyzing planning and predicting they take action Sure sometimes the outcome of this speedy decision making isn t exactly ideal but quite often boldly seizing the moment before it s too late pays off If they do make mistakes the best entrepreneurs learn from them pick themselves up and continue to innovate They act learn from what they find and act again Paul B Brown said in Forbes 2 Be a lifelong learner Great entrepreneurs are constantly curious They deeply desire to know how products work how people think and endlessly ask why This thirst for knowledge not only keeps them well informed about their industry and the larger world it enables them to detect opportunity early and innovate breakthrough products 3 Delegate Even the greatest geniuses of our time did not achieve fame and fortune all on their own The best entrepreneurs know how to build a team whom they can trust to help them realize their vision Recruiting the right people and delegating effectively is a hallmark of a great CEO This empowers you to achieve more than you ever could alone Plus collaboration is the seed of innovation 4 Tune into market needs Plenty of people can spout brilliant forward thinking ideas but if they are unable to match these schemes with a need in the market they re useless Successful entrepreneurs start with a market need They don t let arrogance about their genius ideas dictate their actions The market is their master 5 See the silver linings When unexpected complications and dilemmas obstruct the path to success great entrepreneurs don t see problems they see opportunity Armed with this positive attitude they do not waste time stressing over setbacks Instead they find the silver lining in negative situations and discover unexpected opportunities While they do not wear rose colored glasses the best business owners are not bogged down by failure They continue to be agile innovators and remain ahead of the game 6 Put people first The best entrepreneurs put people first both internally within their organization and externally when serving customers Successful ventures are led by those with an immense capacity for empathy and are able to understand other people s perspectives Being able to step beyond your limited viewpoint and truly observe listen and understand those around you is a crucial asset It enables entrepreneurs to let the customer s needs not their own ideas dictate strategy It also helps them encourage loyalty productivity and camaraderie among their employees 7 Never be satisfied The best entrepreneurs are never done with a project They would continue to iterate and improve a product for all eternity if time and money permitted Great entrepreneurs are fanatical about improving their products and services They ll spend extraordinary time and effort simply to get things right said Geoffrey James in Inc And if they do complete one project they waste no time before diving into a new venture building upon the success of their most recent product This quest to always be better is what enables successful entrepreneurs to create industry leading products and be endless sources of innovation Design Your Agile Project Part 1 May 6 2014 cchatell 0 Comments by Johanna Rothman Find the original post here http www jrothman com blog mpd 2014 03 design your agile project part 1 2 html The more I see teams transition to agile the more I am convinced that each team is unique Each project is unique Each organizational context is unique Why would you take an off the shelf solution that does not fit your context I wrote Manage It because I believe in a context driven approach to project management in general One of the nice things about Scrum is the inspect and adapt approach to it Unfortunately most people do not marry the XP engineering practices with Scrum which means they don t understand why their transition to agile fails In fact they think that Scrum alone without the engineering practices is agile How many times do you hear Scrum Agile I hear it too many times Way too many I like kanban because you can see where the work is We have a lot of features in process Or Our testers never get to done I hate when I hear that Hate it That s an example of people not working as a cross functional team to get to done Makes me nuts But that s a symptom not a cause A kanban board often provides more data than a Scrum board does Can there be guidelines for people transitioning to agile Or guidelines for projects in a program There can be principles Let s explore them The first one is to start by knowing how your product releases starting with the end in mind I m a fan of continuous delivery of code into the code base Can you deliver your product that way Maybe How Does Your Product Release I wish there were just two kinds of products those that released continuously as in Software as a Service and those with hardware that released infrequently The infrequent releases release that way because of the cost to release But there s a continuum of release frequency How expensive is it to release your product The expense of release will change your business decision about when to release your product You want to separate the business decision of releasing your product from making your software releasable That is the more to the left of the continuum you are the more you can marry your releases to your iterations or your features if you want Your project portfolio decisions are easier to make and they can occur as often as you want as long as you get to done every feature or iteration The more to the right of the continuum you are the more you need to separate the business decision of releasing from finishing features or iterations The more to the right of the continuum the more important it is to be able to get to done on a regular basis so you can make good project portfolio decisions Why Because you often have money tied up in long lead item expenses You have to make decisions early for committing to hardware or Non Recurring Engineering expenses How Complex is Your Product Let s look at the Cynefin model to see if it has suggestions for how we should think about our projects I ll talk more about you might want to use the Cynefin model to analyze your project or program in a later post Sorry it s a system and I can t do it all justice in one post In the meantime take a look at the Cynefin model and see where you think you might fall in the model Do you have one collocated cross functional team who wants to transition to agile You are in the known knowns situation for agile As for your product you are likely in the known unknowns situation Are you willing to use the engineering practices and work in one or two week iterations Almost anything in the agile or lean community will work for you As soon as you have more than one or two teams or you have geographically distributed teams or you are on the right hand side of the Potential for Release Frequency chart above do you see how you are no longer in the Complicated or Obvious side of the Cynefin model You have too many unknowns Where Are We Now Here are my principles Separate the business decision for product release from the software being releasable all the time Whatever you have for a product you want the software to be releasable Understand what kind of a product you have The closer you are to the right side of the product release frequency the more you need a program and the more you need a kanban to see where everything is in your organization so you can choose to do something about them Make sure your batch size is as small as you can make it program or project The smaller your features the more you will see your throughput The shorter your iteration the more feedback you will obtain from your product owner and the business You want the feedback so you can learn and so your management can manage the project portfolio Use the engineering practices I cannot emphasize this enough If you do not keep your stories small so that you can develop automated unit tests automated system tests use continuous integration swarm around stories or pair and use the XP practices in general you will not have the safety net that agile provides you to practice at a sustainable pace You will start wondering why you are always breathless putting in overtime never able to do what you want to do If you have technical debt start to pay it down a little at a time as you implement features You didn t accumulate it all at once Pay it off a little at a time Or decide that you need a project to prevent the cost of delay for release If you are a technical team you have a choice to be professional No one is asking you to estimate without providing your own safety net Do not do so This post is for the easier transitions the people who want to transition the people who are collocated the people who have more knowns than unknowns The next post is for the people who have fewer knowns Stay tuned Graduates with Roots in STEM Face Growing Career Opportunities May 2 2014 cchatell 1 Comment By Caroline Lyle As we enter May young people here in Boston and across the country are about to embark on a new chapter in their lives Many will be graduating from college and taking their first step into the great wide professional world Question marks fill their future as they wonder what kind of opportunities await them and their hard earned bachelor s degrees While it is impossible to forecast the job market with absolute certainty it is undeniable that the fields of science technology engineering and mathematics STEM hold the greatest opportunities for job seekers now and in the future Industries like renewable energy healthcare advanced manufacturing and technology are rapidly growing and demand increasing numbers of skilled workers to sustain their expansion The computer and math occupations account for close to half of all STEM

    skilled presenters will start right in on their subject without any warm up and they lose their audience at the very beginning This is especially common when a presentation builds upon preceding theories Once you lose your audience it is difficult to get their attention back From the list of storyboard elements start with the last one developing your closing first Always begin with the end in mind What do you want your audience to take away from this presentation Is it information Do you want them to move to action Knowing this in advance will help you build your presentation After you are clear about the outcomes then you can begin to put your main points into place In the beginning Isn t this a famous saying Well in the beginning of your presentation you need to set the tone of what you intend to cover and lay out the framework of where you are headed Establishing a bond with your audience is key to gaining their confidence in you as the presenter of the information Look audience members in the eye use pauses effectively and open strongly by sharing with them the scope of your subject and what your approach in presenting it will be At some level you are selling them on listening to you And let s face it we are all nervous when we begin a presentation but don t use jokes to fill an empty space and don t set expectations that you can t fulfill All along we want a style of presentation that establishes credibility with the audience not by telling them how good we are but instead by sharing examples that support our material and demonstrate our expertise Being perceived as an expert is paramount to delivering an effective presentation This convincing can be quick for some but for other audience members it may take some time In our presentation we want to identify the two or three main points that we would like our audiences to remember These main points must be reinforced throughout our presentation Repetition does not necessarily hurt Many times presenters are so enamored with all the material they know about a particular topic that they just carry on with so much detail that it is impossible for the audience to absorb all the content This data dump as opposed to the communication of relative information adds confusion instead of clarity Details should add clarity to the subject not burden the audience with superfluous data As presenters of information you should add your spin or wisdom to the content Part of the presentation objective is to communicate content with color and part of the color is your opinion Just make sure that your opinions are supported with information Opinion is the value add that we provide as the deliverer of the content Unfortunately we me included often feel so pressed for time that we bypass the important step of building the storyboard moving directly to creation of the presentation Take an hour or so of quiet and map out your presentations Like most important activities in our lives if we take the time to plan we will be happier with the outcomes Now ask yourself Am I a Leader About the Author Philip Holberton BA CPA is the founder of Holberton Group Inc Speaking of Leadership a

Advisory Board Mr Holberton is the author of the popular blog Speaking of Leadership My Student Experience April 14 2014 cchatell 0 Comments by Rebecca Weiss I cannot believe the term is already over While it seems like these past ten weeks flew by I can remember there still being so much snow on the ground the first week and now we finally have beautiful weather outside This was my first course with GPS as well as my first graduate course since I graduated from undergrad at Brandeis almost two years ago so it certainly was an exciting new experience I was enrolled in Foundations of Data Science and Analytics one of the required courses for the newest master s program Strategic Analytics I was definitely intimidated when I first began as an Enrollment Advisor at Brandeis I had very little formal experience working with analytics I found as I worked through the course I could apply the principles I learned into many facets of my day to day job and the operations of the university as a whole Our instructor Leanne Bateman was great at making sure we related each week s discussion back to our own experiences at work I particularly enjoyed one of our assignments where we had to write a job description for a data scientist in our own office It was an adjustment to get back into the mindset of doing schoolwork My first week I left all of my reading and videos for Saturday afternoon and I sat in Starbucks for almost 8 hours But after the first few weeks I got into a rhythm of setting out times on particular days to do readings and postings After these ten weeks I am very glad that I took the course and I think it will greatly benefit me at work I plan on taking the summer off but maybe I will enroll in my second GPS course in the fall About the Author Rebecca Weiss graduated from Brandeis University in 2012 with a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and Sociology Currently she works with Brandeis Graduate Professional Studies as an Enrollment Advisor Who Solves Which Problems April 10 2014 cchatell 1 Comment by Johanna Rothman Many years ago I was part of a task force to standardize project management at an organization I suggested we gather some data to see
