Security and agility come together for the University of Mainz Medical Center.

Case study: “The best of both worlds

Privacy is an essential component of healthcare.

Often, healthcare providers must sacrifice speed or accessibility in favor of keeping patients’ information confidential. But when Germany’s University of Mainz Medical Center faced heightened urgency because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the organization found a way to maximize both speed and privacy: an IBM hybrid cloud environment featuring IBM Cloud Satellite™ technology.

“We have the best of both worlds at our disposal: the combination of the IBM hybrid cloud technology together with IBM Cloud Satellite technology allows us to use data-sensitive information in one environment, but also use anonymized data in a very agile and quick set-up environment.” — Dr. Christian Elsner, Chief Technology Officer, University of Mainz Medical Center
