2019 Nobel Prize in Physics Goes to 3 Scientists Whose Work Furthers Understanding of ‘Earth’s Place in the Cosmos’
(STOCKHOLM) — A Canadian-American cosmologist and two Swiss scientists won this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics on Tuesday for their work in understanding how the universe has evolved from the Big Bang, and the Earth’s place in it — and for the blockbuster discovery of a first planet outside our solar system. Canadian-born James Peebles, 84, of Princeton University, was credited for “theoretical discoveries in physical cosmology” and Switzerland’s Michel Mayor, 77, and Didier Queloz, 53, each from the University of Geneva, were honored for discovering “an exoplanet orbiting a s...

Medical Device Management in the World of Personalized Medicine
Medical device manufacturers can now supply patients with devices that are tailored specifically to their physiology. As the nature of patient care evolves, so do global regulations governing the manufacture and supply chain for these personalized medical devices. These devices require more consistent monitoring and service and thus demand greater traceability. In the current complex environment, medical device organizations are turning to cloud Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions to enable them to better manage their devices. The ability to maintain visibility at a global scale requires a solution that has the ca...
