iTernity: Mr. Bachmann, why are cloud solutions becoming more important for clinics and hospitals?
Werner Bachmann: IT has developed enormously over the last 20 years. IT installations are becoming more and more powerful, the shortage of IT specialists is increasing, and data volumes are rising. The associated growth in complexity and the increasing use of resources can often no longer - with reasonable cost effectiveness - be mapped in a clinic or hospital's own data center.
Cloud solutions, on the other hand, make it possible to save all or part of the costs of setting up your own IT infrastructure. Instead, software and hardware, storage space and computing power can be obtained via the cloud. This increases IT efficiency and significantly reduces complexity and effort.
