• ITIL for Developers

    Where does software go?

    While fixing bugs and adding new features to get a program ready for release, we don’t usually think about where it all goes. For us, software is just a patient on the desktop who needs to be dissected, completed, changed, cured and got working.


  • DataArt at Health 2.0 Europe 2014

    Health 2.0 Europe is just around the corner, and DataArt’s Healthcare and Life Sciences practice is looking forward to exhibiting at the event.


  • At the moment everyone is discussing the Apple Watch and new iPhones. But I would like to talk about the new Google design guidelines for Android – Google Material Design. I must admit that I’m a big fan of Apple even though I have only been using their devices since 2008. In comparison I started using Gmail in 2005! So I try to follow the news from Google and their innovations in UI and design. But they weren’t so exciting up until the most recent Google I/O.


  • Pitfalls for Insurance Claims Processing

    Insurance claims processing is an essential component of revenue cycle management that has the power to improve practice’s collections. In reality, however, healthcare providers and insurance companies keep running into a wall of miscommunication. Why does it happen? The answer is in the article “Pitfalls for Insurance Claims Processing” by Egor Kobelev.

  • Responding to a request from a potential customer, DataArt’s R&D department created a prototype application for object recognition and tracking within a video.

    The customer’s idea for the product was that an object, selected manually in a video for the first time, is then tracked automatically throughout the footage, with the object coordinates retrieved and stored as the video progresses.


  • DataArt’s DeviceHive at AT&T Hackathon in Vegas!

    15 October 2014
    By Artyom Astafurov, M2M/IoT Practice Leader

    Getting an invitation from AT&T to join the Hackathon as API sponsor was both luck and a good chance to present DeviceHive an IoT community. We spent several days polishing up our Github docs and shipping our educational platforms to Vegas, and these exciting 24 hours of the hackathon were absolutely worth it! Recently hackathons started to change from pure software/API to Hardware and IoT, and AT&T’s is not an exception. Our team decided to show our newly made hardware educational platforms with Arduino YUN we’d wrote about this summer, and to provide DeviceHive tools to Hackathon participants so they stay productive, and shift their focus to innovative solutions rather than spending time on plumbing.

    With a start of 48 teams, 16 were admitted to the Final, and two finalists were using DeviceHive for their projects:

    • Home security: suspicious activity monitoring around the house based on MAC addresses of un-assiciated wifi devices. If the pattern sets of an alert, it will be dispatched to the cloud using DeviceHive.
    • Connected car: connected child safety solution.

    It was an unforgettable experience! Amazing opportunity to stand behind the developers’ back and watch them use DeviceHive code and hardware platform. Some pictures from the Hackathon (of tonnes we’d made)

    What is video streaming?

    Video streaming is a set of technologies behind YouTube videos playback, real-time video chats in Skype and online broadcasting of your favorite team match. With some limitations even a TV program, say, from 50 years ago, could have been referred to as video streaming, even though it was not digital and, of course, non­interactive.


  • 9 Usability Testing Tools: Detailed Review

    02 September 2014
    By Olga Azimbaeva, Business Analyst

    In the hectic world of quickly evolving technologies and incredibly high competition between online businesses, success often depends on the convenience of web interfac-es. Easy-to-use (“usable”) websites have higher conversion ratios and thus generate more revenue.


  • This morning I was discussing with colleagues the reasons behind why industry experts choose to attend or not attend Agile community events and uncovered three main positions:

    1. “Yes, I need knowledge and need to learn from other peoples’ experiences.”
    2. “No, I’m too mature to listen to obvious things.”
    3. ”No, your Agile doesn’t work at all.”

    I fall into the first group, and I hope that those of my peers who recently attended Agile2014 share this same sentiment. It’s a shame I couldn’t attend this year because it’s my personal opinion that the world is too big and complicated to discard anyone else’s experiences.
