The federal website funded by U.S. Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services notes, “the lack of seamless data exchange in healthcare has historically detracted from patient care, leading to poor health outcomes, and higher costs”.
Cloud has immense potential for enterprises to do lots of things better. Sometimes though, we forget that migration to the cloud is a huge and rare opportunity to do things differently as well as better – and smart integration is a big part of achieving that.
Enterprises today have an enormous volume of data spread across numerous on-premise, private cloud and public cloud locations. Cloud data integration is critical for consolidating all that data into a single, unified hybrid cloud environment, enabling enterprises to leverage that data to achieve impactful business outcomes.
Data integration consulting can help enterprises understand the data they have at their disposal and use it to solve emerging business challenges.
Digital companies are laser-focused on customer experience. Creating data-driven, actionable insights is one of their biggest weapons in the war to win and keep customers, and this comes from being able to combine disparate data sets – data integration.
Your legacy assets, enriched over time, are important and valuable – they are what makes your company unique. They contain years of evolved business rules and transactions.
