Guest post from Jay Savaiano, Director of Business Development, Healthcare Vertical
Every year, we're eager to attend the annual HIMSS conference to meet with healthcare professionals about the dynamic changes taking place in the industry and how leading-edge technology is empowering them to better manage an influx of clinical and operational data. With more than 300 educational sessions and an exhibition showcasing thousands of products and services, there will be much to see and do in Las Vegas this week.
In particular, I'm looking forward to speaking with conference attendees about the growing challenges of Big Data and mobile health—both topics that resonate with many of CommVault's customers in the healthcare industry.
That's why I'm particularly pleased to talk about some of our recently announced Singular Information Management™ innovations, which are ideally suited for helping healthcare IT leaders reduce storage costs, administrative overhead and compliance risk. For instance, CommVault addresses Big Data with the combination of new capabilities including Simpana® OnePass and Simpana ContentStore. Simpana OnePass makes managing massive amounts of information easier and faster by combining backup, archive and reporting processes for file system data into "one pass." Simpana OnePass can reduce combined operations time by more than 50 percent and Simpana ContentStore provides healthcare IT organizations with a single, virtual repository for all CommVault-managed data across backup and archive to form an efficient and scalable foundation for eDiscovery, data mining, retention and more. In summary, with these new enhancements, Simpana software has only gotten better at helping healthcare customers with Big Data by lowering costs, simplifying management, providing insight into data and meeting compliance needs.
Additionally, ongoing enhancements to CommVault's new edge data protection solution make it much easier and more effective to safeguard and access data stored at the edge of IT healthcare environments, where otherwise it's often left unprotected and undiscoverable. A new mobile app available on iOS and Android is the latest example of how we're extending Simpana software to further enhance healthcare mobile worker productivity. End users now have flexibility to search, access and perform self-service recovery of data stored on laptops and desktops through any Windows, iOS or Android device.
For University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC), our unique, singular product architecture has helped them accelerate both the backup and recovery of 180 TBs of data for hundreds of clinical applications spanning every department and medical specialty at URMC's hospitals, clinics, physician offices, labs and cancer centers. Rick Haverty, director of infrastructure at URMC, will be joining us at HIMSS to offer a first-hand perspective on the medical center's decision to standardize on Simpana software to centralize the management of electronic medical records and research data across the university's rapidly growing physical and virtual environment.
Stop by our booth #13219 at HIMSS, and ask Rick to tell you more about how URMC is exceeding recovery SLAs while achieving rapid access to patient files and electronic health records—thanks to Simpana software. I'll gladly tell you more about CommVault's Singular Information Management approach and how we can help enhance healthcare delivery by improving access to information while lowering data management costs and mitigating business and compliance risks.
