The healthcare industry is rapidly expanding its deployment of Internet of Things (IoT) applications. According to a new report from MarketsandMarkets, healthcare organizations are using the IoT to streamline clinical operations, manage workflows and enhance patient care. Major IoT applications in connected healthcare include remote patient monitoring, medication management and medical asset tracking.
Software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) continues to see strong adoption in organizations of all sizes. In a recent Frost & Sullivan survey, 15 percent of respondents said their organization has already deployed SD-WAN, and 18 percent said that deployment was currently under way. A whopping 61 percent said they plan to deploy SD-WAN within the next 12 to 24 months. That leaves just 6 percent with no plans to implement the technology.
