The challenge The main objective of the project was clear: to centralise control of the software (maintenance, changes and updates) and enable universal access for the user. This entailed virtualising the applications on a cloud platform that would facilitate remote working and 'as a service' consumption. However, this particular technical approach entailed a series of legal and logistical considerations. On the one hand, the medical data stored in the applications are subject to rigorous privacy and trust contracts, such that maximum security for the platform that stores them is required at all times. On the other, Informática Médica's customers, many of whom are doctors who visit different clinics and homes, had to be able to access the applications from any location and via any device. Silvio Sunyer, the Director of Informática Médica, explained that : "Our customers are highly dependent on the application. The doctors are in their practice one day, at a congress the next, and need continuous access to it. If the application doesn't work they don't know what patients are coming, or if a patient has an allergy or not." Informática Médica The Informática Médica Group is a joint company dedicated to the development of information tools for the health sector. Since 1988, it has delivered software development, hardware consultancy, user education and customer service on all of its products, offering a comprehensive service to doctors and professionals. The relationship between Informática Médica and Claranet began in 2013, when the software company was looking for a new cloud provider after two non-starters. Up until then, Informática Médica had delivered its programmes via traditional means: installation, updates and maintenance on the client's premises, taking on the costs themselves that this approach entails. And that's why they decided to get in touch with Claranet: they needed to migrate their Gesmed Edition and Sinapsis applications to a guaranteed cloud platform.
