As digital transformation becomes a priority, the healthcare industry is becoming more active, than any other, in adopting a hybrid cloud model, with 95% of respondents agreeing that the hybrid is the preferred option, according to the third annual Nutanix Enterprise Cloud Index.

The study revealed that at present, 27% of health care companies operate only traditional, cloudless, data centers that are higher than any other sector. Over the next five years, however, health care organizations plan to reduce that gap by an expected 21 percent reduction in data center deployments and a 32-point increase in hybrid cloud use.
