Converged Infrastructure: Catapult Your IT Environment into the Future

Reading Time: < 1 minuteImplementing a converged infrastructure for targeted workloads is just like wheeling in a Trojan horse into your IT environment.

HCD wanted to offer its healthcare customers a SaaS version of KnowledgeEdge that we would host on our SaaS platform. Leveraging the cloud delivery model became especially important for HCD as the adoption of hosted solutions by healthcare customers began to accelerate.
