Reading Time: 3 minutesA sound cloud strategy offers significant value to healthcare organizations. Take the first step with a cloud workshop. Transform Healthcare with the Right Cloud Strategy In a recent survey of healthcare CIOs, the majority do not have a strategy for moving their data centers to the cloud.

6 Reasons to Deploy a Hyperconverged Infrastructure (HCI)

Reading Time: 3 minutesIf you like the benefits of cloud but have difficulty moving some workloads over to the cloud, a hyperconverged infrastructure (HCI) might be right for your organization. Like converged infrastructures, an HCI consists of pre-integrated compute, storage and networking resources managed as a single infrastructure.

Why Application Dependency Mapping is Key for a Successful Cloud Migration

Reading Time: 3 minutesBy the end of 2018, more than half of global enterprises will rely on at least one public cloud platform for digital transformation, Forrester predicts.
