Optimize data exchange with agile, secure extensible

Data Gravity's Effect on Healthcare

The healthcare industry is immersed in digital transformation with Telehealth becoming more prevalent and expectations around more personalized, convenient, transparent and secure experiences. This is driving an increase in data and challenges around data gravity barriers. Hear from our expert, Tony Bishop, SVP of Platform and Ecosystem Strategy, explain what data gravity is and why it should be considered in the healthcare industry's IT strategies.

New technologies present new demands on infrastructure for data management, security, and storage. With global adoption for healthcare cloud services predicted to reach about $10 billion by 20201 and the average healthcare organization already using 900+ different cloud-based services, healthcare organizations need ways to simplify things.

To get the most value out of data and meet regulatory overload, healthcare IT teams need to process in milliseconds to make faster decisions and take timely action.

As the most agile provider in the industry, we provide customers with the technology and expertise to solve some of their biggest IT challenges with secure, high-performance, interconnected data center solutions that enable hybrid-cloud strategies that quickly extend digital capabilities.

    Case Study

    • Case Study Highlights

      The interconnectivity is the important part. When you look at the massive amounts of data that we produce and the fact that 70 to 80 percent of it is going to leave this building and go to a collaborator site somewhere in the world, our tolerance for high latency, dropped packets, or issues with network traversal is very low.
