“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
