T‑Systems North America (T‑Sys NA) partnered with data specialist Hitachi Vantara to develop solutions for enterprise imaging in life sciences and healthcare. The collaboration will deliver cloud data storage and replication to enterprise customers, underpinned by Hitachi Vantara systems. Alongside this, the pair will give clients simplified access to Digital Imaging and Communications in Medicine (DICOM) and non‑DICOM data. Jim Sabogal, Head of Healthcare & Life Sciences at T‑Sys NA, commented that the collaboration is a response to the growing need for cloud services within digital solutions provided to enterprise customers, in a sector that has seen huge growth in the volume of data processed. Using a consumption-based model, the offering is promoted for cost predictability as well as offering users an operating expenditure‑led spend model. It forms part of a wider T‑Sys play in healthcare, which has included the development of 5G and voice assistant technology targeted for the industry (Deutsche Telekomwatch, #76 and #89).
