HIPAA-compliant IBM Cloud digital strategy implementation delivers accelerated solution delivery on a virtual and scalable platform.
Need: In order to remain competitive, the Client sought to replace its aging infrastructure with an open-stack, cloud-based infrastructure with updated technology.
Solution: IBM Cloud Professional Services designed and implemented a cloud solution on a SoftLayer platform. The IBM teams designed cloud architecture and operations governance to address a new digital strategy. In addition, the teams created cloud best practices using a combination of Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996 (HIPAA) regulations, best practice models and industry standards.
Benefits: By re-platforming the aging infrastructure onto the cloud, the Client was able to accelerate solution delivery and help ensure the availability of support services. In addition, the Clients website will be able to operate on a virtual and scalable platform for better customer activity spike management.
