How to Harness the Power of Cloud Computing in the Pharma Industry

What is driving pharma to the cloud? Sure, it is value-driven, geared to consumers, specifically patients, who take active roles in their health care and want information at their fingertips instead of waiting for it to trickle down through the maze of doctors, tests, and procedures. And yes, it's driven by constantly changing healthcare regulations, finances, digital initiation, and integration. It's also driven by individual companies that want more efficient ways to gather, disseminate and manage their patient data. Will public clouds be too risky? Will private clouds be safe? What about a hybrid of the two? While you're analyzing the unique risks and benefits that migrating to the cloud might bring to your organization, consider that network availability, performance and security are key players in those driving forces that help enterprises choose a cloud infrastructure.
