Evolve IP Survey of 180+ Healthcare Professionals Reveals Cloud Growth, Compliance Needs and Deployment Trends
WAYNE, PA – March 21, 2017 — /BackupReview.info/ – Healthcare IT professionals and executives believe overwhelmingly that when facing hardware malfunctions and environmental disasters, their organization’s data is safer in the cloud than on premises according to a technology survey released today by Evolve IP. The survey also revealed a preference for private over public clouds with about 60 percent preferring private cloud infrastructure over public clouds for data security. The survey of more than 180 healthcare professionals, which provides current cloud adoption trends and future cloud deployment insights, also revealed that 85 percent of all healthcare organizations now have at least one service in the cloud.
Data security is an ongoing concern for IT and this year’s survey asked respondents where they felt their data was safest under three common risk scenarios: environmental disasters, malicious attacks (e.g. cyberattacks) and hardware failure.
Other key results of the survey showed that, on average, healthcare organizations have between 2 and three services (2.75 average) in the cloud. Data backup, servers/data centers, other SaaS and Microsoft Exchange and Office were cited as the top deployed cloud services. Additionally, the survey indicated that adoption will continue to be strong, with 81 percent of respondents planning on adding new or additional cloud services in the next three years.
The survey results also found that 38.75 percent of organizations had deployed a cloud solution on their own versus using a third party provider. This is markedly lower than the average of all industries of 54.75 percent. When asked if they had to start the deployment over, nearly a third (32.5 percent) said they would outsource to a solution provider the next time.
“As evidenced by their currently deployed services and planned adoption trends, healthcare organizations have recognized the significant benefits of the cloud,” said Dave McCrystal, Healthcare Vertical Marketing Manager of Evolve IP. “With a dedicated healthcare focus, geographically redundant Tier IV data centers and The Evolve IP Compliance CloudTM, Evolve IP is incredibly well positioned to help these organizations successfully deploy HIPAA and PCI-compliant cloud computing and cloud communications services.”
