Cloud migration, organizational data warehousing, and enterprise resource planning systems are high on the priority list of over 80% of the CXOs in the healthcare industry. Since 2014, the use of Cloud Computing in this sector has more than tripled. As IT budgets stagnate, healthcare organizations are rationalizing investments based on current needs. The industry is witnessing increasing migration to the Cloud as on premise models are associated with high costs and risk. Although the concept of moving infrastructure to the Cloud is not new, it has transitioned from a “nascent” to a “tried and tested” model.

Cloud computing not only delivers cost advantages to customers but also improves security and functional features, otherwise lacking in traditional on-premise models. It further provides scalability for growing healthcare organizations at a fraction of the cost.

Healthcare firms are also gradually moving their ERP systems to the Cloud, which allows them to focus on core functions. Organizational data warehousing is another challenge due to a growth in volume, thanks to the proliferation of hyper-connected devices, both at the enterprise and at the consumer level. To handle the exponential growth and to leverage data for meaningful analysis, it’s critical to adopt Cloud Computing. Subsequently, an increasing number of cloud vendors are willing to sign Business Associate Agreements (BAA).

We have extensive experience in offering infrastructure services to healthcare organizations across hosting models – on-premise, hybrid, and cloud. Our customers have witnessed optimization in productivity and costs following migrations.
