Pressed to offer consumers fast, flexible and even free product fulfillment and delivery in an omnichannel retail landscape, a crowdsourced, collaborative model is taking shape.

For midsize firms around the world with 100 to 999 employees, advanced technology plays an increasingly important role in business success. Companies have been adding cloud resources to supplement on-premise server, storage, and networking capabilities. At the same time, growth of mobile and remote workers is also changing how companies need to support workers to allow them to be as productive as possible. Like larger companies, midsize firms must make sure that they are effectively coordinating on-premise, public cloud, and private cloud capabilities. Unlike large companies, though, midsize firms are limited in both financial and technical resources to design and coordinate effective solutions to meet specific needs. Rather than invest in a major overhaul of their IT environments, midsize firms have to move incrementally, supplementing current resources with new cloud and on-premise capabilities that provide the performance needed to prosper in an increasingly competitive environment.

Consumer technology trends are clearly driving the evolution of modern work. As consumers (i.e. employees) become more mobile, they want their work lives to be just as flexible and responsive to their needs. They want to be able to use their own device — instead of a company-issued device — for all their personal and business-related responsibilities. As a result, consumer choice is now the driving force behind mobile enterprise decisions, and demand for the traditional locked-down enterprise device is rapidly decreasing.

Digital healthcare is not an unattainable mirage, but is alive and well in the United States and throughout the world. The goal of digital healthcare is to use technology to efficiently manage and deliver better healthcare—providing greater value and more positive outcomes to patients at a lower cost. The cloud provides the fastest, most efficient, and most economical way to reach that goal.
Ideally, cloud technology makes the delivery of healthcare fast, flexible, and easier for everyone to use—no matter whether you’re ordering supplies, hiring an employee, or reviewing your budget. However, actual results depend on how you implement the technology and on the vendor you choose as your provider. Every healthcare organization—payers and providers—will have a different path that leads them to digital healthcare. The question is, are you there yet?
