In 2014 the trend of data management seems to be heading towards the cloud. Of course with this sort of tech trend, you’ll see an ever-expanding pool of technologies that take advantage of this technology in some way. This blog posting isn’t about debunking, trash-talking, or advertising; it’s a brief overview of what the cloud means to us at Ortho2, and what it might mean for you as someone who might be shopping for a new practice management solution.
The cloud is often times really just another term for the Internet. I often get asked, “What can the cloud do for me?” or “Why should I consider the cloud?” Simply put, the cloud means you do not have to host any of your own data. Broken down even more, that means no servers, no server maintenance, no complex network setups for your office, no VPNs, no term servers, no to a lot of things. With Ortho2’s cloud, we house your practice data in a secured data center, we maintain the integrity of the database, and we deal with the redundant backups.
