Rapid advancements in healthcare technology are transforming healthcare. During 2016, we expect to see the continued emergence of these five trends.
Most security solutions — from traditional tools such as firewalls to emerging solutions such as Big Data security analytics — are available as premise-based software applications or network-attached appliances, a cloud-based software-as-a-service (SaaS), managed service or part of a complete managed security services (MSS) package
The age of mobility has mobile initiatives and devices deployed at a much larger scale than previously seen. It’s supported by cloud computing, which gives education institutions access to advanced services, applications, content and data without the hassles or the cost of ownership, management or maintenance.
The cloud provides access to much of the infrastructure required for mobility without the capital expense or management woes. And switching to cloud-based curriculum, content and other learning tools saves on textbook costs while enabling 24/7 student access.
Businesses, schools and healthcare facilities are fighting an ongoing battle to do more with less. For IT departments, this means helping employees be more productive, enabling more efficient delivery of customer products and services and developing cost-cutting technology strategies. Cloud services are a key approach for purchasing and deploying IT services to support these business objectives. Commodity services like email, storage, content management, and web hosting aren’t innovative or business-specific, yet every deployment reinvents the wheel and wastes scarce IT resources on management and administration.
To maximize budget dollars, enhance delivery of citizen services, and improve workflows and employee productivity, the public sector is shifting from traditional technology models to innovative approaches such as converged infrastructures and centralized and shared resources and services. At the top of the list are subscription- and cloud-based, centrally hosted software licensing and delivery solutions such as software-as-a-service (SaaS).
