The ever-increasing thirst of medical professionals to increase human life expectancy has increased the number of records of clinical trials maintained by hospitals. Healthcare providers have increased the medical records and samples of patients. Many healthcare organizations have realized recently that they are running out of space to store their assets. Therefore, the Healthcare sector is witnessing the emergence of healthcare data-as-a-service. Cloud computing enables healthcare providers as well as patients to access medical information at any time and from any location. However, many such organizations are still analyzing the feasibility and relevance of such cloud computing solutions in their IT operations.''
According to the report, one of the major drivers is the demand for cost-effective big data solutions.
