  • Why More Health Care Organizations Are Turning to SaaS Solutions

    Why More Health Care Organizations Are Turning to SaaS Solutions

    There’s no denying it: The cloud has become an integral part of the health care delivery system. According to one recent survey, 83 percent of all health care organizations are using cloud-based services, with the vast majority of those services Software as a Service (SaaS) applications.

    This represents a marked increase over the past few years, where health care organizations expressed reluctance to take advantage of the cloud due to concerns about security, regulatory compliance issues, and questions about functionality during implementation. In fact, the same survey found that only 6 percent of health care organizations have no plans to leverage the cloud in any way.

    So why the sudden shift? To answer that question, you have to start by looking at how providers are using SaaS solutions.

    How Apple is Using Big Data

    Apple is often on the cutting edge of technological advances, so it probably shouldn't be a surprise that the company uses big data extensively.

Now, the company has become enmeshed in big data analytics, with the technology driving many of their most important decisions. It’s true that Apple remains highly secretive about how they use big data in many cases, but that hasn’t prevented some interesting insights from being divulged. By learning how Apple is using big data analytics, other companies can get a better view of how best to utilize the incredibly versatile technology.

    Storing Data in the Cloud? Here's What You Need to Know

    According to Tech Target, between 44 and 48 percent of companies now use some form of cloud storage. That's a decent number, considering the pushback against cloud services from many IT professionals and C-suites alike; security, accessibility and portability all remain top concerns. In fact, the legacy of cloud reticence is obvious in low-storage volumes; most companies store only 15 to 32 terabytes of data — extremely low amounts given the promise of scalability and virtually unlimited capacity. Bottom line? If you're planning to store data in the cloud it's worth doing some prep work then here's five things you need to know.
