All PLM Clouds are Not Created Equal


While all men are created equal — the same can’t be said about all so-called cloud PLM solutions.

In CIMdata’s newest analyst report, “All PLM Clouds Are Not Created Equal,” you’ll learn the important difference between a real and a fake PLM cloud solution.

You’ll discover the value of a true cloud multi-tenant PLM solution and its ability to provide all customers with continuous and instantaneous access to solution upgrades.

Big Data for Healthcare Finds its Home in the Cloud


Every healthcare organization is facing the same reality: Mountains of data are being captured and stored, but there are significant challenges to unlocking the insights provided by this data.

Advances in healthcare analytics software is making it easier to organize, analyze, interpret, and present the data in meaningful ways. However, as the amount of data grows exponentially, so does the compute and storage requirements to power these analytics applications.

Faced with the need to make massive CapEx investments into their IT infrastructure savvy healthcare organizations are turning to cloud computing to power these applications. On-demand compute, unlimited scalability, the option to burst as needed, and cost containment are just a few of the reasons for this move. Unfortunately, fears about cloud security and compliance continue to slow adoption and limit the ability of healthcare organizations to leverage the power of Big Data to improve patient care.

Why you should read this white paper:
  1. Benefits of using the cloud to acquire, store and leverage data for sophisticated analytics.
  2. Best practices in planning, deploying and managing cloud-based big data solutions.
  3. What functionality and features to look for in a cloud-based big data solution for HCOs.
  4. How to remain HIPAA-compliant and ensure executive trust and confidence for cloud-based solutions.

7 Myths of Healthcare Cloud Security Debunked


Even as cloud computing is increasingly adopted by healthcare organizations to host new workloads and applications, misconceptions still persist about the resilience and assuredness of cloud security. As clinical and business stakeholders consider moving functions to the cloud, they may continue to hear nagging doubts about cloud security and compliance. Most of these concerns are rooted in outdated or incorrect information, fear of change, and common myths.

If left unaddressed and unchallenged, these cloud security myths can rob a healthcare organization of a unique opportunity to reduce costs, improve infrastructure agility, increase reliability, and more. In fact, cloud security measures often exceed what healthcare organizations are capable of achieving.

Securing Health Data in a BYOD World


In many ways, Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) sounds good to healthcare leaders. It can improve productivity, optimize practitioners' time and even reduce capital expenditures. But there's a flip side to BYOD that often sends shudders down the spines of healthcare IT executives and hospital administrators: As BYOD usage increases, so can security vulnerabilities.

Research studies reveal some startling statistics about the risk healthcare organizations face when implementing BYOD programs.

Consider these data points:
  • 39% of employees don't password-protect their mobile devices.
  • 52% access corporate information via unsecured WiFi networks.
  • 29% of organizations do nothing to manage applications on BYOD endpoints.
  • Only 24% of personal smartphones can be remotely wiped by a corporate IT department.
Finally, and perhaps most astonishing: Only 9% of organizations are fully aware of the devices accessing their network.

These risks may seem daunting, however, advancements in planning and technology are enabling healthcare organizations to deploy secure, HIPAA compliant BYOD initiatives that simplify and improve patient care while safeguarding PHI.

Server Security: Not What It Used to Be!


Although organizations have considerable interest in endpoint and network security, the modern datacenter, which includes physical and virtual servers and can also encompass cloud environments, remains a valuable but neglected component of the infrastructure that must be protected.

The 10 Step Action Plan: Meeting Your Shared Security Responsibility with Microsoft Azure


Cloud adoption is increasing at a rapid rate, introducing unique and complex security considerations for users. Security is no longer solely under the control of an organization. It's an inherent partnership between the organization and the cloud service provider. And organization may not have complete visibility into all aspects or their security. So they need to understand how adopting a cloud-computing model will affect their risk profile related to data security, privacy, and availability. And if they don't get it right, organizations can compromise the benefits of going to the cloud. Choosing a strong cloud service provider is the first step.

The Clock is Ticking on Windows Server 2003 Support


The End of Support (EOS) of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 in July 2015 will put millions of enterprise servers at risk. And according to a recent study by leading analyst firm Enterprise Strategy Group (ESG), “More than 80% of enterprise and midmarket organizations still support Windows Server 2003 to some extent.” If your organization uses Microsoft Server 2003, the EOS will introduce serious security risks unless you are fully prepared to migrate to a new platform or put compensating controls in place. Because hackers know that Microsoft will no longer acknowledge or patch vulnerabilities, these servers will quickly become a favorite target for attacks. And the risks of running Windows Server 2003 after EOS will increase over time as more issues are found and not patched.
