Our next best practices webinar is ‘GovCloud 2.0‘, which is intended for a global audience, and is therefore part of the broader marketing we do to help Canadian start-ups reach out.
For example one of our first Cloud Best Practice documents was a review of the State of Michigan, and their MiCloud program. `Make MiCloud Your Cloud‘ was the central premise of this best practice sharing.
In this recent Government Health IT article they describe how this same platform is now enabling expansion into Healthcare too, emphasizing the key point – That one key output measurement of successful GovCloud Computing is that other agencies are enabled to share and benefit from it too.
Hand in hand with this trend is ‘BYOD’ – Bring Your Own Device. The increasing proliferation of applications running across different Clouds goes alongside the fragmentation of corporate IT devices.
So our role is to showcase these trends at a local Canadian level, and also associated entrepreneurism.
For example this Globe and Mail piece talks about the trend in Canada, where Mark Farrow, CIO for Hamilton Health Sciences, talks about scenarios of doctors accessing patient records from their own iPhones and so forth.
This is the same scenario as defined in our Cloud VDI for Healthcare catalyst project, which will provide a vehicle to help cluster more new ideas and innovations around this same theme.
