  • Retire
  • Re-host (“lift and shift.”)
  • Re-platform (“lift, tinker, and shift.”)
  • Re-purchase
  • Re-factor / Re-architect

The impact on Healthcare & Life Sciences industry

One of the biggest advantages of Cloud Migration in Life sciences is the ability to collaborate with peers across the globe and analyze data in real-time. For greatest effectiveness, data must move smoothly among patients, hospitals, electronic health records, clinics, devices, and countless other channels in the modern healthcare ecosystem.
