Obama is in distress, and tech companies are coming to save the day.
Google, Oracle and Red Hat Inc. have sent their top experts to Obama's task force assigned to fix the HealthCare.gov website. The experts from Red Hat and Oracle have a background in site stability, reliability, and scalability, which is a big part of what the HealthCare.gov site needs. The government gave themselves a deadline of the end of November to get the thing up and running, so the top minds in the field will give them the boost they're looking for. Julie Bataille, spokeswoman for the U.S. Centers for Medicare and Medicaid, name two of the engineers: Michael Dickerson, a website reliability engineer from Google, and Greg Gershman, a developer and entrepreneur.
Maybe this might help Google's failure to protect our information from the NSA.
