Power Enterprise Systems for the cloud

Clients are using IBM cloud-ready systems to simplify the movement of data, applications and services across a hybrid cloud environment; take advantage of new capabilities; optimize operations and support changing business demands.

HealthPlan Services, a leading U.S. healthcare technology company, for example, chose a hybrid cloud solution to address a new space in the market created by the Affordable Care Act. Today, HealthPlan Services administers more than 30 percent of the Individual On/Off Exchange insurance market, as well as a significant percentage of the Group Insurance market.

“Our triple-digit growth and leadership directly correlates to our technology strategy and how our hybrid cloud architecture has fueled business innovation,” said Michael Lawley SVP of IT at HealthPlan Services.
