DaaS Growth in Healthcare
Like the cloud industry, healthcare organizations operate in a very different manner than they did just a few years ago. Government incentives, an evolving standard of care administration, and new advancements have stretched the boundaries of healthcare IT. As such, the healthcare industry can reap benefits from virtual desktops powered by an agile cloud infrastructure. DaaS enables mobility – allowing users to securely log in from virtually any device, allows colleagues to collaborate more effectively, and makes it easier for users to access apps like billing, data management and archiving tools.
However, with security concerns lingering and stringent industry regulation – healthcare organizations should limit their consideration to partners that support HIPAA compliance… like dinCloud!
DaaS Growth in Finance
Time and client data are two of the most valued commodities in the financial sector. DaaS solutions can help preserve both… a potential reason why the technology has picked up steam so quickly among businesses in this sector. DaaS solutions offer benefits including: security, compliance support, business continuity/disaster recovery capabilities, availability, and data privacy to financial institutions. A virtualized desktop allows employees to access their data and applications like QuickBooks any time from desktops, tablets, Chromebooks and other supported devices.
DaaS Growth in Retail
Like healthcare and finance, the retail industry has transformed dramatically in recent years. In many ways, consumers have gained from recent changes in the industry, with more personalized service, interactive retail experiences, and intelligent purchase recommendations. Those administering retail services, however, are challenged to meet and exceed the changing standard in order to stay competitive. Cloud technology is powering most retail outposts today to deliver the benefits mentioned previously. Virtual desktops play a central role allowing users to log-in securely from multiple devices and collaborate more efficiently from location to location.
These are just a few examples of how cloud technology is being put to use today – contact us to learn more about how a DaaS solution from dinCloud can serve your business.
