Data Center Infrastructure Standardization, Security Management, IT Compliance, Backup and Restore, and High Availability
The IT department at Texas Children’s Hospital has faced significant barriers over the past decade that introduced both cost and risks into the IT environment. First, the IT environment had to be secure and protected from attack, even to the level of the endpoint, and managed from a centralized console. Second, changes in healthcare and government regulations demanded regular and detailed security and compliance reporting. Third, as part of its deployment of Epic software for healthcare information and workflow management and the next-generation Oracle PeopleSoft upgrade, the Texas Children’s Hospital team sought to standardize data center infrastructure software for enhanced availability, improved labor productivity, and lower costs. Finally, the team wanted to centralize management of the desktop and laptop environments for greater flexibility, enhanced security, and streamlined efficiencies.
