Cloud experts publish best practices guide for E-Health

Toronto, Canada – 15th Jan, 2013 – Rackspace, EMC, Vaultive and other Cloud Computing industry experts have helped create a Cloud best practices guide to describe how the technology can be applied to E-Health.

Issue 2 of a new ‘TRANSFORM‘ e-magazine from the Cloud Best Practices Network focuses on the recent Cloud adoption strategy published by Canada Health Infoway, which calls for a ‘greenfield’ suite of new SaaS applications to help accelerate adoption of E-Health.

Neil McEvoy, CEO of the Cloud Best Practices Network publishing the guide, says ”TRANSFORM is intended to capture the business benefits that Cloud computing can enable.”

Robert Griffin, Chief Security Architect for EMC RSA and lead for the OASIS KMIP project, “As data encryption becomes more and more critical for securing data entrusted to the cloud, interoperation across key management capabilities in traditional IT, private clouds and public clouds will also become more and more important.

KMIP plays an essential role in enabling this interoperation, enabling the secure movement of keys across disparate key management and cryptographic environments in support of deployment flexibility so essential to the cloud.”

Co-author Elad Yoran, CEO of Vaultive, comments “The financial and operational benefits of moving IT infrastructure to the cloud are compelling for organizations worldwide, but the rate of adoption of cloud-based services within the healthcare industry is typically lower given the strict regulations that organizations must adhere to.”

“Advanced encryption technology can enable healthcare organizations to ensure maximum data security and compliance in the e-health model by encrypting data before it goes to the cloud, while the encryption keys are solely controlled by the organization that owns that data. As a result, it can never be decrypted outside of the organization.”

Vivent Smart Home, our parent company, is a smart home provider that places a lot of hard drives across homes in North America," explained JT Olds, Director of Engineering, and Brandon Crowfeather, Product Manager, at Vivint Smart Home, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @ThingsExpo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are striving to become digital businesses for differentiated innovation and customer-centricity. Traditionally, they focused on digitizing processes and paper workflow. To be a disruptor and compete against new players, they need to gain insight into business data and innovate at scale. Cloud and cognitive technologies can help them leverage hidden data in SAP/ERP systems to fuel their businesses to accelerate digital transformation success.
DXWordEXPO New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City and will bring together Cloud Computing, FinTech and Blockchain, Digital Transformation, Big Data, Internet of Things, DevOps, AI, Machine Learning and WebRTC to one location.
In this presentation, you will learn first hand what works and what doesn't while architecting and deploying OpenStack. Some of the topics will include:- best practices for creating repeatable deployments of OpenStack- multi-site considerations- how to customize OpenStack to integrate with your existing systems and security best practices.
Most DevOps journeys involve several phases of maturity. Research shows that the inflection point where organizations begin to see maximum value is when they implement tight integration deploying their code to their infrastructure. Success at this level is the last barrier to at-will deployment. Storage, for instance, is more capable than where we read and write data. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Josh Atwell, a Developer Advocate for NetApp, will discuss the role and value extensible storage infrastructure has in accelerating software development activities, improve code quality, reveal multiple deployment options through automated testing, and support continuous integration efforts. All this will be described using tools common in DevOps organizations.
