N3 Cloud Services from CDW
Digital healthcare heralds a new era for the NHS, one many providers are not prepared to meet. Overhauling paper-based processes and tackling the volume of digital information being created will put pressure on, and likely overwhelm, most on-premise infrastructures. Against a backdrop of government reform, budget cuts and new initiatives to drive improved information exchange, the cloud offers the chance to access valuable IT resources within a model of cost-reduction and technology simplification.
The government has acknowledged the transformational potential offered by the cloud, mandating a 'cloud first' strategy, wherever possible. Determining how to respond to this with a co-ordinated and strategic approach is essential.
ServiceWorks is CDW's cloud services business. Underpinned by a long-established managed platform and powered by three world-class data centres, we specialise in moving business critical IT services to the cloud; Enabling healthcare IT teams to shake off the burden of infrastructure management and migration of legacy systems to focus on how they better support patient care.
Our platform has been built from the ground up, using only the very best technology components to create a world class platform from which to deliver your IT services. Importantly, it is live and ready for use today – not built on demand - allowing us to commit to accurate costs, even though every customer requirement is unique.
Working alongside many of the world's leading technology vendors we have also integrated various complementary cloud services with our own core products. Together this creates best-of-breed solutions.
