Well it’s the last day of work before the holidays. I am looking forward to spending time with my family over the break. 2012 has been a busy year. I put together a new management team. Toni Skokovich joined us from Merge Healthcare to fulfil the role of VP of Sales. Matt Liness came from […]
Do Not Let Toni Steal Your iPad!
While I should probably tell you about IGUANA 5.5 or that we’ll be at booth #8944 at RSNA, you’re probably more interested in knowing, “who is Toni and why is he trying to steal my iPad?” About 5 months ago, Toni Skokovic joined the iNTERFACEWARE team as our new VP of Sales. I could fill […]
When are you going to replace your integration engine?
Below is a repost of my recent newsletter. Please read and comment below. My team is off enjoying their summer vacations this week; leaving me responsible for our newsletter. Since I don’t have their knack for design or clever wordplay, I thought I’d just share an interesting trend I’ve been seeing over the past several […]
Is re-implementing 4 eGate interfaces within one day fast or slow?
I just got news that one of our integration partners managed to convert 4 eGate interfaces within 1 day. She did this: Without a product demonstration. Without any formal training other than our online documentation. Without calling our helpdesk once. Two of the interfaces were relatively simple, the other two were more complicated. While she […]
Translator Training in Toronto
…Try saying that three times fast! Or better yet: join us for one of the in-depth Iguana 5 training sessions that we’ve started offering on-site in Toronto. It’s been a few weeks since we kicked off our inaugural session and I can tell you that the entire experience was a huge success. Training people is not […]
The Return of Internet Explorer
Yes, it’s true. With the latest release of Iguana, version 5.0.9, Internet Explorer 8 and 9 are now officially supported (again)! For those of you who read our blog and/or our wiki, you probably know that we have a bit of a love-hate relationship with IE around the office. Editor’s Note: Since this article was […]
Limits to Interoperability
One of my staff had an interesting experience many years ago. He had an internship at a life insurance company. The company maintained a huge array of virtualized AS400 machines that were running a number of legacy COBOL applications which described life insurance policies. The company needed to maintain all these applications for the life […]
Out of this world code navigation coming in Iguana 5.0.7
I gave the latest snapshot of Iguana a spin today to get a peek at some of the new features that will be part of 5.0.7 release. I put some screen shots into the wiki under the What’s New section. The code navigation is exciting. It goes well beyond what traditional IDEs like Visual Studio […]
Looking for two software developers
We’re looking to fill two additional development positions in Toronto, Canada to work on our Iguana engine. To give you a bit of a taste for the technology involved please take a few minutes to view these short videos of the Iguana translator: http://www.interfaceware.com/iguana.html http://www.interfaceware.com/iguana_translator.html As you can see it’s a very interesting application of […]
The best tooling for standards development? A word processor.
HL7 maintains a number of tools for maintaining the HL7 Version 3.0 RIM. One of the tools is 1999 version of Rational Rose with an associated Microsoft Access database. There are Eclipse plugins etc. I lose track of them all to tell the truth. One of the big problems with the RIM is that it […]
