The Colombian Ministry of Information and Communications Technology (MINTIC) Successfully Implements AuraPortal Business Process Management Software
News Apr 06, 2013
AURA, a global provider of Business Process Management (BPM) software, has announced that MINTIC, the government agency leading implementation of the latest technologies in Colombia, uses AuraPortal Business Process Management to automate its operations.
The AuraPortal Process Management Platform has recently been distinguished by the independent market analysis firm Ovum in its Decision Matrix 2011 report as the most advanced BPM in the market.
So far, the following strategic processes have been fully automated:
- ICT Register
- Postal Services
- Surveillance and Control
- Control and Authorization of Device Accessories
The latter follows the government's policy against the theft of cell phones, which has led to Colombia being considered a pioneer in Latin America in the fight against this type of crime.
In addition to these Processes, the Surveillance and Control process is also currently in the implementation phase and the Radio Broadcasting and Amateur Radio processes are in the Design phase.
The 100% web-based AuraPortal Business Process Management software allows citizens to manage all their transactions from anywhere, substantially improving the efficiency of the service and reducing the transaction costs of Ministry users.
Algorithm Speeds Up Medical Image Analysis 1000 TimesNews
Medical image registration is a common technique that involves overlaying two images, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans, to compare and analyze anatomical differences in great detail. Researchers have described a machine-learning algorithm that can register brain scans and other 3-D images more than 1,000 times more quickly using novel learning techniques.
Antarctic Worm and Machine Learning Help Identify Cerebral Palsy EarlierNews
A research team has released a study in the peer-reviewed journal BMC Bioinformatics showing that DNA methylation patterns in circulating blood cells can be used to help identify spastic cerebral palsy (CP) patients. The technique which makes use of machine learning, data science and even analysis of Antarctic worms, raises hopes for earlier targeted CP therapies.
Towards Personalized Medicine: One Type of Data is Not EnoughNews
To understand the biology of diseased organs researchers use different types of molecular data. One of the biggest computational challenges at the moment is integrating these multiple data types. A new computational method jointly analyses different types of molecular data and disentangles the sources of disease variability to guide personalized treatment.READ MORE
