Cloud computing is the use of services, such as software development platforms, servers, storage, and software, over the internet. The cloud offers easy access to all the benefits of technology such as deploying, building, investing, maintaining and operating infrastructures.
Few ways how Cloud is poised to change the Healthcare economy:
Software as a Service (SaaS) Cloud provides healthcare organization a range of on-demand hosted services that would give fast access to the business applications.
Platform as a Service (PaaS) Cloud provides enhanced security for the web-based service and cloud application deployment.
Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud solutions provides on-demand computing and storage for a medical facility.
Increase in Multiple cloud usage
Enterprises are becoming aware of the distinct advantages of Platform as a Service (PaaS) solutions. Healthcare organizations are effectively partnering with more than one cloud provider. Enterprises will focus on a cohesive healthcare multi-cloud strategy around different public cloud services for the same application.
Strong cloud adoption across pharmaceutical organizations
The services that are being deployed major cloud platforms revolves around making data easier to consume, whether it be new database architectures, de-identification, classification, data anonymization or compliance-led initiatives. All of these services help break down critical barriers for pharmaceutical organizations to put their data to work as they progress in analyzing large and diverse sources of data. As applications become more mobile and web-based, there could be a strong adoption of cloud in pharmaceutical on a global scale.
Mainstream adoption of the container and serverless technologies
With significant growth in artificial intelligence and machine learning in healthcare, organizations will reprioritize containers and serverless services as it offers organizations a cost-effective way to launch applications without provisioning or managing any servers. As cloud computing platforms increase their ability to store, secure, process and analyze, healthcare systems will further be transformed by data.
