Cornerstone Integration Helps Save Lives in the Golden Hour
Cornerstone Integration and Intel® vPro™ Technology: Making Every Second Count in the Golden Hour
By Charles King, Pund-IT, Inc.
Mobility is a key driver in the IT marketplace, but it is a mistake to think that its influence is limited to latest and greatest smart phones and tablets, or issues surrounding bring your own device (BYOD) initiatives. Instead, the impact of mobile technology affects entire IT infrastructures and business environments, literally from the fingertips of employees and customers to the staff who manage and maintain corporate data centers.
With that in mind, what does an ideal mobile computing infrastructure look like? What are its characteristics, its basic strengths, and potential weaknesses? That depends in large part on the processes and applications—the IT lifeblood, if you will—of the organization itself. But let’s consider an extreme case: businesses in the business of saving lives.
Mobility has been an inherent factor in medicine and healthcare for millennia. The sick and injured are often unable to travel to places of treatment, so medical professionals go to them. The enduring and endearing images of country doctors making house calls, nurses caring for patients in remote surroundings, and medics treating the wounded on battlefields are virtually universal.
