Velocity named among six cloud service providers

CHARLOTTE, NC (August 3, 2016) – Velocity Technology Solutions, a global enterprise application cloud services leader, announced that it has been included in a Gartner analyst report in the healthcare –specific cloud providers category. The report, “Healthcare Providers: It Is Time to Trust Cloud Service Providers as Partners,” was published on July 28, 2016 by Gartner analyst Gregg Pessin.

“We serve more than one hundred healthcare organizations around the world, helping them enhance productivity and reduce costs while improving quality of care and patient safety,” said Keith Angell, President and CEO of Velocity Technology Solutions. “We are pleased to be listed by Gartner in the report and feel we are a valuable partner for these organizations, and a trusted resource as healthcare organizations accelerate their journey to the cloud.”

“It's time for cloud service providers to be considered trusted partners to healthcare delivery organizations,” notes Gregg Pessin, analyst for Gartner “HDO CIOs should use this research to come to terms with concerns about security, privacy and service delivery to break through the barriers that are preventing full-partnered cloud adoption.”

In the guide, Gartner recommends that healthcare companies “work through the security, privacy and service delivery barriers that exist in the organization surrounding cloud-based services.” It also suggests creating “a hybrid cloud strategy that includes a combination of private, community and publicly hosted offerings to unlock the missing capabilities HDOs need.” For organizations comparing vendors Gartner says to “look for healthcare-specific cloud service partners.”

Velocity leverages its Cloud Application Management Platform (VCAMP) to offer public, private, and partner options to HDOs across the globe, providing customers with even more cost effective and resilient alternatives.  As part of its hybrid offerings, Velocity has built a software defined, purpose-built, compliant virtual private cloud to provide an efficient, flexible, and environmentally responsible service, optimized for customers at various performance and price profiles.
