The Picture of Health: Data Management

It’s no surprise that the healthcare industry has faced dramatic, sweeping changes this year. Spurred by COVID-19, health and research organizations have had to pivot the way they provide services seemingly overnight. Many have expanded cloud adoption to support basic work from home (WFH) services for staff and have had to expand and support new and innovative ways to reach patients via telehealth and collaboration platforms. The requirement to have access to real-time, accurate data, which is increasingly driven by AI, to provide faster, higher quality healthcare to patients has never been higher. However, as the need to manage valuable data has increased dramatically, most have not had the time or capacity to fully assess how to support the long-term costs and security concerns related to these services, and many are currently struggling with performance issues that hinder user productivity. 

 

New policies, procedures, and research are helping healthcare organizations stay ahead of an ever-changing situation, but budget constraints and decreased revenue from elective procedures make it difficult to deliver nondisruptive business operations, support critical care, and meet massive research data and compute requirements. NetApp can help. For more than 28 years, they have helped hospitals, universities, and research institutions around the world securely scale telehealth, high-performance computing and analytics, and remote working environments up or down, on your premises or in the cloud of your choice.

 

NetApp can help you build a data fabric that optimizes cost and operations and simplifies how you manage, move, and protect data, wherever it resides. Only NetApp partners with and has native integrations with all three of the world’s biggest cloud providers—AWS, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud. This allows you, the customer, to create a unified data management solution for your data. This means that with NetApp you have the flexibility and freedom of choice to provide the applications and services that you depend on the right data in the right place at the right time and at the right cost. Your benefit: reduced risk, accelerated deployment, simplified management, and lower total cost of ownership, all with NetApp.

 

The cloud can support WFH and telehealth services and power crucial medical research, but these applications hold massive amounts of sensitive personal data that must be protected from unauthorized access. Now is the time to evaluate your long-term plan for delivering these services securely at scale. Integrated security features reduce vulnerability to cyberattacks and ransomware, maintaining the security and privacy of your data wherever it resides—on your premises or in the cloud.

 

Increased strain on remote work and telehealth platforms can cause performance issues that hinder your ability to deliver critical care, research, and administrative services. Your organization must develop digital systems, tools, and processes to deliver the performance that users need without disruption. Data must be delivered at the right place, at the right time, to make the right decisions. NetApp can help improve your application performance regardless of location by deploying all-flash technology, leveraging high performance in the cloud all while harnessing software-based data efficiencies. Whether your application is on your premises, resides in the cloud, or is available as a service, NetApp has solutions that deliver high performance at scale for your applications and users.

Banking on the Cloud: The Future of Fintech

The financial services industry has admittedly been slow to embrace the cloud, which only makes sense given the volume and complexity of the data it handles and the regulatory requirements it must adhere to. However, it seems like the time has finally come for the industry to migrate to the cloud en masse. Cost reduction and scalability have always been some of the primary benefits of moving to the cloud, and after the last year, it’s getting harder and harder for any organization to ignore those benefits.
