The role of cloud in healthcare

WHEN: February 28, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

WHERE: via GoToWebinar


Discussing the results of a recent CIO survey in Australia on the role of cloud in healthcare, what is influencing its evolution and the challenges that it faces.

As healthcare facilities progress in their journey to improve process and productivity, their strategy around digitisation rapidly extends beyond the application stack which stores and processes data. Along with applications themselves, are the issues of how those applications are provisioned, optimised and managed, the role of the data centre sits at the heart of this capability and fundamentally crafts the experience the user and the IT team will have with the application. Data centres have undergone a fundamental transformation with the evolution of cloud technologies, both public and private.

This webinar will talk to the results of a recent CIO survey in Australia on the role of cloud in healthcare, what is influencing its evolution and the challenges that it faces.
