Why Outsourcing Information Technology is Business Smart | VAZATA

Why Outsourcing Information Technology is Business Smart | VAZATA | Cloud Hosting Solutions | Scoop.it
By outsourcing IT services through Managed Services, you can save time, money and the burden of trying to manage it all yourself.

 

IT outsourcing converts fixed IT costs into variable costs and allows you to budget more effectively. In other words, you only pay for what you use when you need it. Hiring and training an IT staff can be very expensive, and temporary employees don't always live up to your expectations. Outsourcing IT lets you focus your human resources where you need them most.

If you’re not IT trained, how do you assure an employee is qualified? Certifications are important, but so is experience. Having experienced IT professionals on your team can make all the difference in a smooth running business; however, organizations that try to do all the IT services in-house themselves can incur much higher research, development and implementation time – all of which increase costs – costs that ultimately must be passed on to customers.

A quality outsourced IT service organization will have the resources to start new projects right away. Handling the same project in-house might involve weeks or months to hire the right people, train them, and provide the support they need. For most implementations, quality IT companies will bring years of experience in the beginning saving time and money.

Businesses have limited resources, and every manager has limited time and attention. Outsourcing IT services can help your business stay focused on your core business and not get distracted by complex IT decisions.

Every business investment carries a certain amount of risk. Markets, competition, government regulations, financial conditions, and technologies all change very quickly. By relying on competent, proven IT outsourcing services, you can avoid the frustrations of market fluctuations and changing business environments.

What are the pros and cons of the AWS vs. RackSpace *business model*?

What are the pros and cons of the AWS vs. RackSpace *business model*? | Cloud Hosting Solutions | Scoop.it

Pete Benoit's answer on Quora, "The easy answer is that both models are necessary dependent on the need of the customer and application. As the application complexity and critical nature of the solution increases, one would generally see the need for direct, hands on support rise. This is not true in all cases, but my experience shows that IT departments still believe that IaaS providers should be an external support extension of their own internal group...."

Cloud Computing and Healthcare Data

Cloud Computing and Healthcare Data | Cloud Hosting Solutions | Scoop.it
Healthcare data has strict patient data protection rules under the HIPAA-HITECH act. Healthcare will require a hybrid cloud solution.

 

Some of the challenges contributing to the adoption of cloud computing in the US healthcare system include current policies on security and privacy matters. Presently, patient health information privacy is protected by the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) that was further enhanced by the HITECH Act. The HIPAA-HITECH Act combine has expanded the definition of responsible parties involved in maintaining the privacy of patient health information, included terms for privacy breach notifications, empowered patients with access to health information and an accounting of disclosures, increased enforcement and raised penalties for breaching of privacy.

 

Beyond healthcare providers and vendors, there is the issue of patient consent. Defining the right to govern who can collect, use and disclose patient health information as part of EHRs will be tricky in a shared public cloud environment. Despite these challenges, a starting point for cloud computing technology in the public healthcare setting will be the creation of private clouds operated by large partner institutes.
