LaunchPoint Joins Amazon Web Services' Partner Network
Rolling Meadows, IL, Feb 20, 2013 (PRWeb.com via COMTEX) --
LaunchPoint, a provider of cloud-based healthcare analytic solutions and services, today announced its designation as a Standard Technology Partner within the Amazon Web Services (AWS) Partner Network.
LaunchPoint uses AWS to power its proprietary, cloud-based Healthcare Analytics Platform. LaunchPoint's two divisions, Discovery Health Partners and Ajilitee, use the Healthcare Analytics Platform to deliver scalable, flexible, secure, and cost-efficient claims analytics solutions and other SaaS business intelligence and information management offerings to healthcare customers.
"As a Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network, LaunchPoint can 'fast-track' the development of healthcare analytics solutions, while more easily supporting them as they evolve," said John Bair, Chief Technology Officer of LaunchPoint. "We're now building, operating, and scaling twice as fast compared with on-premise operations, while tightly managing our capital outlay."
LaunchPoint selected AWS's cloud infrastructure to drive competitive differentiation based on dramatic performance and storage improvements at reduced cost. Because LaunchPoint's industry focus on healthcare posed an extra security challenge from the start, LaunchPoint added controls to AWS' mature security levels to ensure HIPAA compliance. "Not only are we meeting our healthcare customers' most stringent privacy, security and availability requirements, but also it's our belief that our environment is more secure than the majority of data centers," said Bair.
In addition to formalizing its technology partnership status with the AWS Partner Network, LaunchPoint is an early adopter of Amazon Redshift, a fully managed, petabyte-scale data warehouse service in the cloud. Separately, LaunchPoint is leveraging Elastic Cloud Compute (EC2), Simple Storage Service (S3) and Amazon Glacier to build a proprietary file transfer, data analysis and archival software, CrossPoint, that supports the information exchange, auditing and retrieval requirements of healthcare organizations.
The AWS Partner Network is a network of technology partners with commercial software and Internet services that have built solutions that run on, or are complementary to, AWS.
LaunchPoint provides information-centric enterprise services and solutions for healthcare organizations, specializing in the powerful blend of information management, analytics and cloud computing. Corporate divisions Ajilitee and Discovery Health Partners deliver highly flexible, scalable and cost-efficient solutions that enable customers to innovate with information and advance their competitive position.
