Texas planned to replace outdated unemployment system, but pandemic hit first – Longview News-Journal

Mary Lou Ketchum, a substitute teacher in San Antonio, has been calling the Texas Workforce Commission for six weeks and still hasnt been able to talk to a representative.

Ketchum, 59, filed a claim in early April and was denied, but thought shed be eligible for unemployment benefits under the federal coronavirus relief bill, which extends unemployment eligibility to part-time workers.

After appealing the decision, she said she is still waiting to hear back. She said the commissions website is primitive and outdated. Pages load extremely slowly, and whenever she uses the backspace key, the system logs her out, she said.

It definitely has put a strain on me, Ketchum said. I went to the food bank I never thought Id ever have to do that.

The Texas Workforce Commissions unemployment benefits services system the online platform for one of the biggest elements of the states safety net for Texans affected by the pandemic is on a mainframe computer system built in the early to mid-1990s, Ed Serna, the commissions director, told The Texas Tribune. When the novel coronavirus brought much of the state economy to a standstill, the system experienced a surge of unemployment claims it has struggled to handle.

Now the agency is working to process the 2 million unemployment claims filed in the past two months through a system running on outdated technology and code. And when Texans try to call the commissions phone lines to file claims or seek answers, they run into busy signals or automated messages saying the agency is unable to take their calls. On April 7, for example, the Texas Workforce Commission received 3.5 million calls, 3.1 million of which received busy signals.

Marcus Turner chief architect of Enola Labs, a software development company focused on cloud-based solutions said the states data centers dont have enough computer capacity to meet the demand the Texas Workforce Commission is experiencing.

They should move all their servers to a public cloud, Turner said. They should have done it before.

The Workforce Commissions unemployment system is federally funded, and in 2019, the agency had finally lined up enough federal money to replace the system and move it to the cloud. But the pandemic struck before that update which will take two or three years could be launched, Serna said.

On the mainframe side, weve increased the processing capacity pretty much as much as we can, Serna said. If that were cloud-based, it would just scale to our needs.

Steven Parker, a welder in North Richland Hills, was one of the nearly 2 million Texans who filed for unemployment because of the pandemic.

Parker, 39, had already exhausted his 26 weeks of benefits in January after losing a job in August. He started a new job, only to lose that one as well in early April. Under the federal Pandemic Unemployment Emergency Compensation program, Parker was eligible for an additional 13 weeks of benefits, and the Workforce Commission approved his claim in April.

But more than a month later, Parker said he still hasnt received any payments, and he cant get through on the phone lines to ask whats holding up the money. Hes getting desperate he said he has burned through his savings and will run out of money before the end of the month.

I just need something to keep things going, to put some gas in my car and food in my fridge, Parker said. You know its bad when you have to unplug your freezer.

Mainframe malfunctions

The Texas Workforce Commission oversees workforce development, offering job training for Texans seeking employment and guidance for employers on running their businesses. And for out-of-work Texans, the agency processes unemployment claims and payments through its unemployment insurance system, which it built from the ground up in the 1990s because nothing like it was available from private vendors, Serna said.

Lawmakers, concerned about security and the inefficiency of having each state agency run its own IT operation, passed a bill in 2005 that required state agencies to use the states hardware and store their software in the states two data centers one in Austin and the other in San Angelo. Even after the Department of Information Resources, which manages the data centers, started offering cloud services in the mid-2010s, it managed those services internally.

The Workforce Commission moved its main website over to the cloud, but because the unemployment system is not compatible with the cloud, the system remained on the states mainframes.

And when hundreds of thousands of Texans rushed to file for unemployment, those mainframes couldnt handle the crushing demand.

At the start of the pandemic, the online application for Texans to apply for benefits operated on just five servers, Serna said. The commission quadrupled the number of servers as quickly as possible, but thats about as much expansion as the mainframe system can handle, Serna said.

Many companies and government agencies across the nation have shifted their software to cloud hosting, which can more easily increase or decrease how much computing power is available to meet changing demand.

In March, Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker said shifting the states unemployment platform to Amazon Web Services cloud a year ago helped it process a similar crush of unemployment claims. Charles Pearce, a spokesperson for the Massachusetts Executive Office of Labor and Workforce Development, said the state paid for that upgrade. And federal agencies including the CIA run on Amazons cloud.

If its good enough for the CIA, Netflix, health care, its good enough for what the [Texas Workforce Commission] is doing, Turner said.

State Rep. Donna Howard, D-Austin, a member of the House Appropriations Committee, said state agencies tell the committee year after year that they need to upgrade their IT systems. Since the pandemic hit, she said, Texans have contacted her to voice their frustrations with the unemployment claims system.

I have heard time and time again about people who have tried to file that keep being bumped off and keep being told to [call the agency directly], Howard said. I would hope that if we had everything on the cloud, we would not be having as much of a backlog, as much frustration, as much inability to process those that are trying to access [the Texas Workforce Commission] to file claims.

Disrupted plans

Even before the pandemic, the Workforce Commission had set aside federal funding and received permission from the state Legislature last year to spend up to $40 million on overhauling the old unemployment system.

The new system will be cloud-based so that it can be scalable during an emergency, Serna said. But it will still be managed by the Department of Information Resources.

The Workforce Commission was close to choosing a bidder to upgrade the unemployment benefits services system when the pandemic hit, Serna said. Once the agency accepts an offer, Serna said itll take two to three years to get the new system online.

The commission might have been able to develop a new system earlier if adequate federal funding was available, Serna said.

There really hasnt been an effort from the federal government to look at the 50 states and its territories and say, OK, were going to allocate a large amount of money to all the states to modernize their systems, Serna said.

Meanwhile, Ketchum, the San Antonio substitute teacher, is still waiting to see if shell be able to receive unemployment benefits. Her sister has been supporting her financially so she can get by.

If Ketchums appeal is denied, she said shell have to start looking for a new job. But she said shes afraid of exposing herself to the novel coronavirus.

I have asthma and bronchitis and high blood pressure, Ketchum said. One time I feel like I should look for any job, and another time I think I should stay at home and play it safe. That really worries me.

Amazon Stock Is the Coca-Cola of Cloud Computing – Motley Fool

Soft-drink giant Coca-Cola (NYSE:KO) always faced a plethora of rivals, but none of them could match Coke's incredible brand power. E-commerce veteran Amazon.com (NASDAQ:AMZN) has carved out a similar space for itself in the booming market for cloud computing services. Amazon Web Services is the first name on everybody's lips in that sector.

"You can't beat the real thing," which is exactly what Coke has been calling itself since 1969. The company backed that ambitious slogans with a combination of classic beverage flavors and an unparalleled distribution network, and Coke investors have enjoyed "a Coke and a Smile" with market-beating returns. If you invested $10,000 in Coca-Cola in 1988, under the official tag line of "You can't beat the feeling," and reinvested your dividends in more Coke stock along the way, that investment would be worth $391,000 today:

KO Total Return Price data by YCharts.

Amazon arguably bootstrapped the cloud computing industry in 2006. When Amazon Web Services (AWS) hit the market, Amazon saw it as a way to make some bonus cash from its excessive portfolio of technology assets. The idea hit a nerve in the IT sector, and AWS eventually grew into a serious profit center. Amazon culled 37% of its total 2019 sales from AWS, and the division also generated 63% of the company's operating profits last year.

The platform's share of the cloud infrastructure market landed at 32% in 2019, according to technology analyst firm Canalys. Runner-up Microsoft (NASDAQ:MSFT) Azure lagged far behind with an 18% share. Alphabet (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) and Alibaba (NYSE:BABA) are stuck in single-digit territory. I suppose you could call Azure the Pepsi (NASDAQ:PEP) of the cloud computing market, and the rest barely rise above the level of store-brand knockoff sodas.

Investors are often looking for "the next Amazon" of other markets, and the company blazed a trail for others to follow in online retail operations. So I realize the irony in highlighting Amazon as "the Coca-Cola of" anything, but the company truly deserves this badge of honor in the explosive cloud computing sector. Carving out a large market share with a defensible brand as the market crystallizes will serve Amazon well for decades to come, just like Coca-Cola's brand power has carried that company through decades of market turmoil and an ever-changing swarm of potential challengers.

Reaching that lofty level in two very different industries is a grand achievement and one more reason to buy Amazon stock today.

Global Healthcare Cloud Computing Market Outlook: Global Market Forecast to Reach $92.24 Billion by 2027 – GlobeNewswire

Dublin, May 25, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Healthcare Cloud Computing - Global Market Outlook (2018-2027)" report has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com's offering.

The Global Healthcare Cloud Computing Market accounted for $18.28 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $92.24 billion by 2027 growing at a CAGR of 19.7%. The proliferation of new payment models and the cost-efficiency of cloud, the dynamic nature of health benefit plan designs and the implementation of the patient protection and affordable care act are likely to boost the growth of the healthcare cloud computing market. However, concerns over data security and privacy, and migration from legacy systems are likely to hamper the profit boundaries.

Cloud computing increases real-time data collection and improves accessibility to the data. It has outpaced the conventional paper healthcare system by providing more speed and efficiency in data handling. For instance, cloud computing technology is widely used in remote patient monitoring. Rising demand for stringent regulatory compliance, public awareness, and growing investment from healthcare players such as Cisco, IBM, GE Healthcare, and government organizations are expected to create a demand for this technique during the analysis period. The proliferation of high-speed internet and implementation of favorable regulatory acts are also expected to provide growth to the market.

Based on application, the clinical information systems segment is estimated to experience lucrative growth due to the high adoption of systems in critical care such as ICUs for efficient management of patient data, and also there is huge demand for clinical information systems from hospitals and healthcare providers. By geography, North America is likely to experience strong demand due to the presence of key factors such as high adoption rate of healthcare IT services and continuous support, financially and otherwise, from government agencies.

Some of the key players in the Healthcare Cloud Computing market include Amazon Web Services Inc, Athenahealth Inc, CareCloud Corporation, Carestream Health, ClearDATA, Dell Inc, IBM Corporation, Iron Mountain Inc, Oracle Corporation, Siemens Healthineers, Cisco System Inc, Allscripts Healthcare Solution Inc, and EMC Corp.

Microsoft launches healthcare cloud, says more industry clouds will follow – Cloud Tech

Microsoft has launched its first industry-specific cloud offering aimed at healthcare, with the promise of more industry clouds to follow.

The announcement was made as part of the now-virtual Microsoft Build event. While the major headlines of the developer jamboree have focused around big investments in artificial intelligence, as sister publication AI News has reported, Azure has often featured peripherally underpinning the projects. The partnership with OpenAI to whom Microsoft invested $1 billion last year building a supercomputer is hosted on Azure.

This is therefore one of the few announcements with Azure front and centre and health was an obvious first choice, as Microsoft explained. Our commitment has always been to ensure the tools we provide are up to the task of supporting our customers in their time of need, wrote Tom McGuinness, Microsoft CVP worldwide health and Gregory J. Moore, CVP Microsoft health, in a blog post.

The offer brings together existing and future capabilities that deliver automation and efficiency on high-value workflows, as well as deep data analytics for both structured and unstructured data, that enable customers to turn insight into action, they added. A robust partner ecosystem extends the value of the platform with additional solutions to address the most pressing challenges the healthcare industry is facing today.

The healthcare cloud, which is available in public preview and is available on free trial for the next six months, will connect products including Microsoft Dynamics 365 for marketing and customer service, as well as Azure IoT. Use cases include connected referral management for care teams, self-service portals for patients and providers, and the design of interactive patient journeys [to] help promote better outcomes.

Microsoft Teams, which is HIPAA-compliant and HITRUST certified, will also be part of this initiative, providing secure chat, voice and video meetings, alongside recording and note transcription.

Health remains one of the primary industries for the leading cloud providers. Google Cloud has its own HIPAA-approved healthcare APIs, which were made generally available a month ago having been in the works for two years, while Amazon Web Services (AWS) has an extensive healthcare and life sciences portfolio. Amid the Covid-19 pandemic, many providers extended services to those working in the industry; Microsoft made Teams available for free to NHS staff in the UK among other initiatives.

O’Reilly Survey Reveals More than 88% of Organizations Use Cloud Computing – Business Wire

BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--OReilly, the premier source for insight-driven learning on technology and business, today released the survey findings of its latest report, Cloud Adoption in 2020, that captures the latest trends in cloud, microservices, distributed application development, and other critical infrastructure and operations technologies. The report found that more than 88% percent of respondents use cloud infrastructure in one form or another, and 45% of organizations expect to move three quarters or more of their applications to the cloud over the next twelve months.

The report surveyed 1,283 software engineers, technical leads, and decision-makers from around the globe. Of note, the report uncovered that 21% of organizations are hosting all applications in a cloud context. The report also found that while 49% of organizations are running applications in traditional, on-premises contexts, 39% use a combination of public and private cloud deployments in a hybrid-cloud alternative, and 54% use multiple cloud services.

Public cloud dominates as the most popular deployment option with a usage share greater than 61%, with AWS (67%), Azure (48%), and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) (32%) as the most used platforms. However, while Azure and GCP customers also report using AWS, the reverse is not necessarily true.

We see a widespread embrace of cloud infrastructure across the enterprise which suggests that most organizations now equate cloud with whats next for their infrastructure decisions and AWS as the front-runner when it comes to public cloud adoption, said Mary Treseler, vice president of content strategy at OReilly. For those still on the journey to cloud-based infrastructure migration, ensuring that staff is well-versed in critical skills, such as cloud security and monitoring, will be incredibly important for successful implementations. Enterprises with solid footing have the potential to leverage this infrastructure for better software development and AI-based services, which will put them at an advantage over competitors.

Other notable findings include:
