Life Sciences organizations are actively looking for ways to balance regulatory and security requirements, as well as existing investments, with the agility, speed of innovation and cost savings of the cloud. However, there are as many different approaches to cloud adoption as there are Life Sciences companies. How can an organization map out the right strategy? Determine the right balance between maintaining control and enabling external partner collaboration or the cost advantages of the cloud and intellectual property protection? And, while cloud adoption is
widely cited as an intrinsic element of digital transformation, where does a cloud deployment fit with legacy
infrastructure? OpenText helps customers answer these questions every day.
To look at the cloud from all sides, OpenText has distilled the options into five patterns, ranging from traditional on-
premises infrastructure to a “cloud-native” approach, with various combinations in between.
While there is overlap from one pattern to the next, presenting the options in this way facilitates a better
understanding of each general approach. No matter which direction an organization chooses, OpenText offers a
flexible path to the cloud, ensuring the right Enterprise Information Management (EIM) solutions and deployment
strategy for any organization.
