A story with Hackensack Meridian Health
The first cloud service was launched 15 years ago. Since then, companies have moved to the cloud for its global infrastructure, scalability, agility, resiliency, elasticity, and security as well as its reduction in capital expenditures. Over the years, I’ve helped many successful cloud migrations and gained a lot of valuable experience and insights. However, not every journey to the cloud is smooth. Without expertise and experience, many cloud migrations fail to meet the goals and expectations companies hope to realize.
How do enterprises march a successful and enriching cloud journey? Hackensack Meridian Health (HMH) recently took on the challenge and has the answer.
HMH is New Jersey’s largest, most comprehensive and integrated health network. In the beginning of 2021, HMH selected Google’s Cloud Platform (GCP) as its new home in the cloud for infrastructure and applications. However, their cloud path was not at all straightforward. The initial partner relationship did not provide the appropriate forward progress, and HMH was challenged for several months looking for the expertise and skills they needed – until May of 2021, when they were introduced to Dito, a Google partner specializing in GCP infrastructure and security. With Dito, HMH’s cloud journey accelerated.
Dito has decades of experience in designing well-architected cloud foundations and extensive hands-on experience in building Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines and Infrastructure as Code (IaC) modules. Dito helped HMH march to the cloud in three phases.
