Gartner Report: Competitive Landscape for Hyperconverged Integrated Systems. Accelerate business outcomes and achieve growth with hyperconverged integrated systems (HCIS). Key findings: As the hyperconverged integrated system (HCIS) market has matured in the past two years, some smaller providers without sufficient bases, technical resources and cash to survive on their own have exited the market." • "HCIS-only providers that have a sustainable sales advantage based on effective communication of technical strengths that can deliver superior cost savings or performance advantages are most likely to remain viable as the market continues to grow." • "HCIS providers without compelling value propositions to differentiate their offerings against other HCIS solutions are unlikely to survive the increasing competitive pressure that is appearing in the market."
Infant mix-ups in hospitals are an issue that occur at a surprisingly high rate,
but are preventable. With Zebra Technologies, hospitals now have the ability to seamlessly match mother / baby identification. Zebra has developed a series of mother/infant/birthing partner wristbands with matching security code features. These wristbands can be produced from identification coming from leading HCIS platforms. Other leading major HCIS vendors are actively incorporating this technology into their offerings.
I&O leaders desire more workload scaling from HCIS, but need more convincing. This Gartner research provides insight and guidance on adoption of this technology and its potential to handle more challenging workloads.
