Kloudtrack, Cisco And University Of Maryland Launch Innovation Sandbox™ For Healthcare, Medical And Life Sciences

COLLEGE PARK, Md., June 12, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- kloudtrack®, a leader in cybersecurity and cloud computing (cyber|cloud) technologies and solution services for sensitive data, process management and Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC), will team up with the University of Maryland's Robert H. Smith School of Business and Cisco Systems (NASDAQ: CSCO) to establish the first Innovation Sandbox™ exchange catering to the innovation, workforce development and technology roadmapping needs of public and private sector healthcare, and medical and life science (HealthTech) organizations.   

The project was announced as part of today's Maryland Economic Development Association Summer Conference at UMD, themed "Health Innovations: Impact on Economic and Workforce Development."

The HealthTech Innovation Sandbox, which will be available via both physical and virtual data hosting platforms, is being developed jointly by kloudtrack and Cisco in partnership with the Center for Health Information and Decision Systems (CHIDS) -- a research center at the Smith School. The project will allow healthcare, medical and life science organizations to test, research, teach and learn various innovative technologies and/or methodologies in a proof-of-concept "sandbox" environment .

As with all Innovation Sandbox environments, the HealthTech sandbox will be provisioned in tandem with selected vendor partners that offer technologies and solutions in a variety of innovation categories, including:
  • Cloud Computing | Cloud Migration | Cloud 2.0™
  • Innovation Roadmapping
  • Cyber | InfoSecurity
  • Data Driven Innovation™ (Data Analytics | Big Data | Reporting)
  • Mobility (Wireless | BYOD | Cross-platform | Device Independence)
  • Platform Integration | Legacy Data Migration | Portability
  • Hosting (IaaS, SaaS, PaaS | Co-Location | Virtualization)
  • Secure Collaboration | Safe Sharing
  • Business Process Management | Workflow
  • Solution Services (IT Assessments, ROI Metrics, Benchmarking, Cloud Broker, Certifications)

"Healthcare as an industry has developed over the past 100 years to become perhaps the most pervasive citizen service in most developed countries," said Kenyon Crowley, deputy director of CHIDS. "During that same period innovations and technical advances have often outpaced the sector's ability to efficiently implement and integrate these technologies across this complex sector.  The Innovation Sandbox offers a low-cost, low-risk approach that allows practitioners and health stakeholders from any specialty area to test new innovations against key bottom-line and patient care objectives and foster a learning community."

Now, more than ever, the driving factors behind IT deployments have become more economic than technical.  The advent of innovations such as cloud, virtualization and mobility mean the vendor landscape is much more diverse.
