When it came time to upgrade a server system that had already been triaged, Hennepin Home Health Care chose an open source, Linux platform. Why? It needed an IT solution that was reliable, secure and agile to handle the company’s growth and ongoing adoption of electronic billing and medical records systems, and to be ready for government mandates and the constantly changing healthcare industry. Hear Hennepin Home Health Care’s story in this video.
The Internet of Things (IoT) market is hot. Today, there are about 13.5 billion IoT-connected devices, and in five years, it’s estimated that there could be as many 38.5 billion devices. Trouble is, IoT devices can be risky when it comes to cybersecurity. But here’s the good news: IoT devices can be secured and Red Hat’s Russel Doty gives the lowdown in this recently published article. It’s a must read!
Now more than ever—with today’s constant pressures to provide new and innovative services—IT organizations must encourage and institute a culture of continuous learning and improvement. DevOps, a relatively new approach that draws on agile IT development but goes far beyond, can help IT achieve these goals.
While high performance computing (HPC) has seen continued growth in other industries, adoption has been relatively sluggish in the financial services sector. But increasingly complex regulatory mandates, guidelines and rules within the industry are driving the need for applications that require high bandwidth, enhanced networking, and very high compute capabilities and thus leading to greater adoption of HPC. Listen to our on-demand webcast to learn what financial services companies need to know to stay ahead, and how to implement a cost-effective solution that will pay long-term dividends.
There’s big data, the continual onslaught of new technologies, and the anticipated rise of the Internet of Things (IoT). How can oil and gas companies manage the resulting information explosion? Find out in our on-demand webcast, in which Red Hat and SAP execs offer insights and solutions for managing all that information so companies can extract more value from operational data, drive bottom-line efficiencies and boost top-line growth.
Virtual intensive care units (vICUs), which use technology to deliver care to patients in off-site hospitals and clinics, are nothing new. However, these vICUs are becoming more commonplace and are helping to meet the demand for better quality care and an improved patient experience. The goal of a vICU is to ensure patients, especially those in rural areas, have access to quality, safe and cost-effective intensive care. These vICUs require collaboration across units, best practices, standardization of care—and a flexible, reliable and secure IT infrastructure to support the various applications such as remote patient monitoring, electronic health records, and more. Red Hat’s prescription for the IT infrastructure? An open source platform.
Nearly half, or 49 percent, of Red Hat Enterprise Linux customers have either incorporated Internet of Things (IoT) projects in their organization or plan to by 2016, according to new research from TechValidate. The findings highlight IoT’s importance among companies—especially since industry experts estimate the IoT market could be worth trillions of dollars in 10 years.
Patching is a necessary part of operating system lifecycle management. It is also a requirement of functional compliance as well as regulatory compliance, as called for in the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and PCI DSS 2.0. But patching production systems that support critical applications like electronic medical records (EMRs) can make healthcare IT administrators a little uneasy. With a consistent patch strategy that is routinely executed on your Red Hat Enterprise Linux systems, patching can run smoothly. So what’s the best way to do this?
Colombian telecom operator UNE EPM cut its operating, support and maintenance costs quite a bit when it moved from an aging directory server on a proprietary Unix platform—costs that were eating into its profits. A switch to an open source Linux platform changed the dynamic, and you can read more it in this case study.
