With all of the rumours about technology and its latest advancements, did you know that holograms and data visualization are poised to transform the shopping experience once and for all? This trend will surely prove to be a revolutionary step, and it’s not as far off as you might be thinking.
Many hospitals and healthcare facilities resort to using outdated computers and software for locating your medical history even today, which firstly, makes it hard to locate and time-consuming, and secondly, the information may not be up to date! While these systems may be one notch up from the almost obsolete paper file systems, they are yet short of the level of efficiency these systems demand.
The solution? The conversion of healthcare facilities to using electronic health records. It was estimated that 2015 was to be the year in which most providers will be using cloud services, but even now the healthcare industry lags behind and has a long way to go.
Many experts predicted that this year there would be a major cloudburst which would act as impetus to foster the public cloud consumption. While the current industry dynamics have proven this true for hybrid clouds, the time period which was originally predicted was way off the mark. The reason is that there were more barriers for the hybrid cloud than what had been originally predicted.
Yet, against all odds, hybrid cloud is expected to take over the sector with a mass adoption spree in the upcoming year of 2016.
We have already covered the public vs. private cloud debate, but you may still not have been able to arrive at a definitive verdict (the cost of being completely unbiased). However, let’s not forget how we established that each has its own offering. While private is more secure, public is more cost-effective. That said, let’s not assume that public cloud is an utterly insecure and unsafe option. There are many ways in which public cloud can be made more secure, and that’s the topic of discussion this week.
While public cloud may not be innately secure enough, there are third-party tools that can help provide you peace of mind. Besides which we, as experts, always recommend the thorough reading of your service agreement in order to get a better understanding of the level of security the provider is offering and whether or not it meets your requirements and expectations.
While cloud based technology has established a good foothold and businesses have finally realized its potential, the technology itself has evolved significantly over the past few years. While the evolution owes a lot to higher internet speed and more reliable connections, it is also due to the change in how cloud-based solutions are designed and implemented.
Today, the newest trend in these solutions is of cloud based business management suites that mimic social networks and work as a complete collaboration platform for businesses. Offering more flexibility and freedom, these solutions work far better than standalone specific-purpose applications. In simpler words, these cloud based business management suites are actually helping businesses migrate their entire infrastructure to cloud without excessive cost or efforts.
Applications have gained ground in the technological world over the last decade. There are very few businesses that are running without the use of applications, so as to fulfill the needs of application development, platforms like CAMP are helping businesses to develop, deploy, and use their applications in a smart way.
CAMP was developed primarily by the Oracle Corporation with the collaboration of several other developers. It maintains a direct interaction between the cloud provider that builds and provisions the services and a cloud consumer that uses the platform to build the applications. CAMP is based upon a few concepts that support the core of this service. It includes the following key elements without which application management is not possible.
