Healthcare data is highly sensitive and confidential. A huge amount of data is generated and processed daily in the healthcare vertical. However, most healthcare organizations still store their data on their premises. This data is more vulnerable to losses and creates huge security risks. For instance, in August 2016, Banner Health, a provider of hospital services, revealed that the data of around 3.7 million patients had been compromised. In June 2016, Bon Secours Health System declared that the personal information of more than 650,000 patients might have been compromised, due to the data being exposed on its vendor’s information system. Therefore, potential opportunities exist for CSPs due to the increase in healthcare consumerism and digital transformation in the healthcare vertical. The need for cost control, technology innovations, increased security, and compliance requirements are expected to drive the high adoption of cloud migration services in the healthcare vertical.
The security and compliance management application is expected to grow at a high CAGR over the next 5 years. This application enables end users to protect the virtualized workload with the required compliance policies. Compliance management becomes even more crucial when data or applications fall under Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), Sarbanes-Oxley Act (SOX), Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), or any other regulated market verticals.
The redesigning of networks for migration from on-premises to the cloud requires high initial investments, which is difficult, especially for SMEs that have limited budgets and resources. Moreover, most enterprises have found the upgrade to cloud deployment to be a complex and costly process. Enterprises need to take care of a number of issues, along with the network architecture, to accommodate their cloud infrastructure setup. It is very difficult to achieve visibility, measure performance, and manage workloads across multiple cloud deployment models. Complexity is the biggest challenge in cloud migration, due to its deployment structure and strategies required for building and managing cloud migration.
