This IDC Perspective explains how healthcare organizations considering industry clouds should approach the evaluation and selection process. As a new, platform-based model for engagement with end customers and ecosystem partners, industry clouds must be assessed for both their technology and business fit for the healthcare organization while keeping in mind incumbent technology providers, value chain implications, and other related factors. IDC proposes six evaluation criteria or pillars that businesses can use to make an informed industry cloud selection and describes the rationale for each.

"After covering it for over a decade, IDC has a deep understanding of the industry clouds market and its implications for healthcare organizations," says Lynne A. Dunbrack, group vice president, Public Sector. "Our six industry cloud pillars provide buyers with a comprehensive framework for evaluating the current offerings and making the right decision for their organization," adds Nadia Ballard, research manager, Industry Clouds and SaaS.
