As an ER physician who previously worked at Northwestern University, University of Chicago, and Columbia University, he will also drive the medical vision and standards for Analyte. Subramani will report directly to Analyte Health CEO Sridhar Murthy.

About Karen Soares, Chief Compliance Officer

"During this time of intense change, it is important that Analyte Health holds itself to the highest standards of quality care and professional services.

Robust Enterprise Grade WebRTC Systems and Services


The emerging WebRTC standard has become one of the industry's hottest topics – and with good reason. Being able to "communications enable the web" has Communications Service Providers as well as Enterprises busily making plans for deployment. But, as these plans unfold, reality is starting to intrude on those plans. Our expectations of telephony services are much higher than web browsing. We expect the phone to connect instantly, operate with minimal disruption, and work seamless across any network, anywhere, at any time. There is also an understanding that phone service is inherently secure. With WebRTC, the expectation is for these applications to behave in the same manner.

This session looks at the user experience and expectations of a WebRTC Enterprise service. It will also cover how a WebRTC enterprise handles security, reliability, and interoperability within browsers and networks.
