Columbia Sportswear

 

Discover why Columbia Sportwear chose vCloud Air and how they plan to deliver value back to the business.

"Columbia Sportswear has multiple use cases for vCloud Air. Not only between private cloud to public cloud but we also have about 46 remote branch offices and today we don’t have a business continuity or disaster recovery plan for those offices. So as the vCloud Air expands what we’re really looking for is DR-as-a-service and that backup plan for those smaller locations around the world."

Columbia chose VMware vCloud® Air™, realizing immediate cost savings and gaining a robust modern platform to support new application development.

The company turned to VMware to migrate quickly to a more robust infrastructure. Using VMware vCloud Air, they gained the technology and control to achieve HIPAA certification and improve application availability while reducing the IT budget by one-third. The company has been able to extend its capabilities to the cloud and implemented a sophisticated electronic health record (EHR) system, including electronic prescriptions and online physician orders, to improve staff agility and patient care.

“The vCloud Air team had the best onboarding process for any IT project that I’ve been involved with in the last 20 years. We haven't looked back.”

“The infrastructure in a HIPAA-compliant environment needs to be secure with controls for change management and the right firewalls and technology to protect the perimeter. Before moving to vCloud Air, we had policies in place, but we didn’t have the infrastructure to support them. On vCloud Air, we’ve deployed technical controls on our core infrastructure and anti-virus and other solutions in a holistic approach to security that allows us to comply with regulations and achieve HIPAA certification.”
