The Challenge

Healthcare IT vendors and healthcare organizations are facing rebuilding or replacing systems to meet compliance, marketplace, and competitive needs. Migration of applications to new platforms, such as the cloud or mobile, can maximize efficiencies and flexibility, yet modernization projects are complex and carry significant risk. This migration requires managing dual systems during the transitions as well.

If platform migration is done too quickly or without proper planning, the entire application suite will suffer from costly security, performance or data loss. Properly managing a modernization project is crucial for organizations to avoid cost overruns, data loss and gaps in security, performance and compliance.
