Prolifics and IBM Announce Cloud Pak Partnership
March 21, 2023
Prolifics, a global Digital Transformation leader, today announced a collaboration with IBM (NYSE: IBM) to leverage IBM Cloud Paks with Prolifics solutions to assist clients with quick and secured application modernization, integration, and legacy system moves across hybrid cloud platforms.
Prolifics built its healthcare solution, Quick FHIR, on IBM Cloud Paks, enterprise-ready containerized solutions running on Red Hat OpenShift. Prolifics Quick FHIR is a digital healthcare integration and data solution based on the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources (FHIR) standards for exchanging electronic health records. Quick FHIR allows organizations to easily use and share information with application programming interfaces (APIs) and employ artificial intelligence/machine learning (AI/ML) to derive useful, actionable insights from de-identified data.
Prolifics plans to leverage IBM Cloud Paks for other new and existing Prolifics solutions. These include Data privacy solutions addressing the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and similar compliance regulations, as well as an array of application modernization and integration offerings using cloud and cloud hybrid platforms.
“We chose to build on top of IBM’s Cloud Paks because we find this helps reduce long-term cost of ownership for our solutions,” said Greg Hodgkinson, Prolifics Chief Technology Officer.
“They package up enterprise-class application, automation, integration and data capabilities delivered on a common, simplified operations model that provides ultimate freedom of architectural choice and flexibility. We’re excited about how this collaboration with IBM can help us accelerate bringing these important solutions to our clients.”
Prolifics is part of IBM’s Cloud Pak Ecosystem, an initiative to support global system integrators and independent software vendors to help clients modernize workloads from bare-metal to multicloud and everything in between with Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform.
Earlier this summer, Prolifics was named one of the 2020 IBM Think Build Grow winners, which honors next generation solutions utilizing IBM Cloud. In addition, Prolifics earned the IBM Cloud Excellence Award: Cloud Pak during IBM’s first-ever virtual Think conference in May 2020. Excellence Awards recognize IBM Business Partners who drive exceptional client experiences and business growth.
