With the merger of St. Joseph Health and Providence Health and Services, which was announced in 2015, the complete transformation of the IT infrastructure is inevitable. The IT team from St. Joseph Health wasn’t sure how they were going to scale their IT infrastructure without increasing the budget. However, the merger has made it possible.
The new strategy includes plenty of cloud, such as IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, private and public. It will also include network virtualization, converged infrastructure, DevOps-style IT automation and more. They believe they are even changing the way data centers look and operate in the field.
