I thought the event's been terrific. Cloud Slam '13 in my mind's really been a huge success for folks. People are really getting a lot of details about what cloud can do in the healthcare life sciences space. In that kind of deal, they have a lot of opportunity to interact with the vendors that are here, other people that have had success stories and use cases. So they can see in very practical ways how people have leverage the cloud in order to gain really big advantages in healthcare.
Dell Boomi is an integration cloud. We provide integration services that allow anybody to connect two endpoints together. And we're really focused on the healthcare vertical this year. When you look at the collaborative care initiatives and some of the other regulatory challenges that are coming to folks, the requirements to share data, we look at that and think, cloud can solve that problem very well, very easily, and very naturally.
So we believe we're a natural fit for this particular market. And we're really looking forward to continue to grow and extend into this market. In fact, I think the broader Dell is really doing a lot in that whole space. Dell Services has a tremendous amount of initiatives and efforts around the health insurance exchanges, the health information exchanges. Dell Boomi itself being an integration platform, you'd think first and foremost in order to really solve that problem, share data, move that data, manage that data, it really comes down to integration of it.
We had the real pleasure to have Tom Barton from Novartis come up and talk about his successes in the healthcare space using the Dell Boomi integration platform. As he kind of went through it, he was really able to detail out the exact benefits that he got.
His initiatives and his efforts in that company really delivered a lot of value. And I think Dell Boomi had a big piece of that. But certainly, Tom and his initiative really brought that home for Novartis in a very big way.
It's a very short time to value. He's able to do stuff in one sixth the time. And when you start looking at that kind of productivity, I think that's very, very meaningful. So if folks didn't get a chance to really see his session on the recorded stuff, I would really encourage them to look for the iPad use case session that's been recorded and take a look. It's very compelling.
