In part one of this series, we talked about why healthcare organizations should consider moving to the cloud. The cloud offers a holistic approach to reducing administrative overhead, improving operational readiness, accelerating deployment and helping you be proactive instead of reactionary.

Now, we explore how to make a smooth transition to the Hyland Cloud.

Why should healthcare organizations use the Hyland Cloud?

The Hyland Cloud offers a secure, privately managed cloud platform that we custom designed to host Hyland content services solutions. It is the cloud architecture of choice for OnBase, Perceptive Content and Brainware, our intelligent capture platform. The Hyland Cloud also serves as the platform for our native cloud applications, like ShareBase.

Most importantly, the future of Hyland’s content services platform is in the Hyland Cloud.

Our dependable, reliable and highly available hosting architecture alleviates the burden of in-house server management and empowers IT staff to perform more innovative work. By eliminating the need to monitor and maintain the security, availability and disaster recovery of your environment, your teams focus instead on your solutions and extending the power of your software.

Moving to the cloud is an important milestone in any organization’s digital transformation journey. When choosing how and where to host your content services solution, you have two options: leverage a public, commodity cloud or turn to a private cloud, like the Hyland Cloud. From architecture to disaster recovery, there are big differences between a commodity cloud and a Hyland Cloud solution deployment.

How long does it take to complete a typical migration from an on-premises solution to the cloud? 

Cloud migration can be as unique as each customer’s solution. That said, our Global Services Team’s proven methodology typically results in migrations that take six months.

During the migration, Hyland will guide your data, solution and team through the transition to the Hyland Cloud to minimize impact on your business. We do the heavy lifting to ensure you remain focused on business operations and supporting your end users.

Are there any tips or tricks for a smooth transition process? 

The key to a smooth transition from an on-premises solution to the cloud is to start planning early. Typically, there are significant changes required outside of your Hyland solution that you will need to account for in the migration process.

The good news is, we’re here to help with the change management involved for both your Hyland solutions and the systems integrated with them. Engage your Account Executive to begin to build the value of the cloud operationally, financially and strategically.

Where can organizations turn for help?

As always, your Account Executive is here to help you get the most out of your solution. They have the tools and access to the experts across Hyland who can help you make the best decision for your strategic journey to the Hyland Cloud.
