The Nashville Technology Council and CareerBuilder have released their latest report on the state of Nashville's technology jobs market. The short version: Employment rose by 2,200 people and the number of openings grew 9 percent to more than 1,500. But closing the gap between the region's supply and demand — one of the NTC team's biggest priorities — remains a big challenge because the region isn't yet producing enough degreed or certified tech professionals.
Check out the full report here. It also features comparisons to cities around the Southeast and shows that Nashville-area employers tend to pay a little less than their peers elsewhere in the region.
During the Marketing United conference last week, the team at Emma took the chance to introduce some new partnerships and features. Most notable among them is a cooperative effort with Eventbrite that will better integrate event information into mailings and track ticket sales, among other things.
“Eventbrite’s new integration with Emma is an especially great benefit to venues or organizations with several upcoming events, providing a seamless and polished way to effectively market an event, or even multiple events, with one email,” said Dylan Serota, head of partnerships for Eventbrite. “This integration with Emma is a reflection of Eventbrite’s commitment to provide top-notch design coupled with actionable analytics for event organizers.”

Vanderbilt University Medical Center is reviewing its clinical IT systems in an effort to replace key elements, including tools for clinical decision support, nursing documentation and medication management.
McKesson Corp., the vendor for the various applications, has announced it will no longer support those clinical products as of March 2018. Due to the technology's scope, only two contenders are available to replace McKesson's products: Cerner Corp. and Epic Systems Corp. VUMC has tapped Deloitte Consulting to assist with vendor selection.
One of the applications, Horizon Expert Orders, was developed based on technology developed at VUMC and called WizOrder, which was licensed to McKesson in 2001. The application was later back-installed at VUMC.
"We want to understand where we are today with our functionality, and also what our clinicians say we don't have and what we could really use," Mark Ciampa, director of VUMC's HealthIT program management office, said in a statement. "We'll be interviewing physicians, nurses and other staff in the hospital and clinics to help us evaluate current functionality and things that we have today that we really need."
