Today's topics include Salesforce introducing the Health Cloud to make patient data more accessible, Intel rolling out Skylake mobile chips, T-Mobile CEO John Legere goes after mobile data thieves, and HP is launching new security analytics tools.

Can hospitals and other medical providers tap cloud computing to get a better picture of patients’ needs?

That’s the promise of Salesforce Health Cloud, a new service developed with the help of several leading care providers, including Centura Health, DJO Global, Radboud University Medical Center in the Netherlands and the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

With Health Cloud, patients will be able to access their medical community from mobile and desktop devices via the Salesforce Community Cloud that works on iOS and Android devices.

Intel is launching a full portfolio of "Skylake" processors that when combined with Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system will help jump-start a stagnant global PC sales, according to company officials.

At the IFA consumer electronics show Sept. 1 in Berlin, Intel finally unveiled the lineup of chips, which range from low-power processors for fanless, ultra-mobile and two-in-one designs that consume 4.5 watts, to chips that consume 91 watts and are aimed at workstations and gaming systems.

T-Mobile's CEO and President John Legere is leading a battle against a small number of customers who he claims are abusing T-Mobile's tethered data limits by a large margin and cheating honest customers as well as his company.

In an open letter to T-Mobile's 59 million customers on Aug. 30, Legere wrote that he is "taking aim at a select group of individuals who have actually been stealing data from T-Mobile."

"If their activities are left unchecked, their actions could eventually have a negative effect on the experience of honest T-Mobile customers.”

Hewlett-Packard announced new analytics services at the HP Protect 2015 conference to help organizations improve security. HP decided to build focused products for analytics, including the new DNS Malware Analytics (DMA) platform.

DMA is a two-part product. One part taps into an organization's on-premises DNS event stream with an appliance, which works to detect malware within the data.

Next the data collected by the on-premises device is sent to the second part of the product, which is a cloud component that conducts an additional analysis and generates reports.
