VMware, Inc. announced that Navicure, Inc. a healthcare payment solutions provider for hospitals, physician practices and billing companies, is achieving faster product development times by reducing the time required to provision test and development environments. Navicure IT took a two-phased approach to streamlining that process from days to two hours initially, and has now shortened provisioning to 15 minutes with VMWare vCloud.
The VMware vCloud Suite facilitates organizations to build, operate and manage a private cloud based on a software-defined data center architecture; policy-based, self-service provisioning; disaster recovery; and operations management in a single solution.
With the Affordable Care Act (ACA) taking effect in 2014, Navicure plans to refresh existing applications and introduce new solutions to help guide its customers through the transition. Navicure IT worked to automate the governance and provisioning of IT services to eliminate manual, time-consuming management and authorization processes. Over 50,000 healthcare providers nationwide use its SaaS model and is growing at a rate of over 20 percent annually while currently processing over 1.5 million transactions daily.
“A key driver for using the VMware vCloud Suite is the ability to automate the delivery and reclamation of development environments,” said Donald Wilkins, IT Director, Navicure, Inc. “As a result, we can now offer our developers a self-service catalog to deploy development and test environments on-demand -- removing IT as a bottleneck. The streamlined development process enables Navicure to bring new and enhanced applications and functionality to our growing customer base faster.”
