A notable history in problem solving
Quest has a successful and lengthy record of giving healthcare organisations the necessary tools to securely operate Microsoft environments. The healthcare industry constantly faces multiple IT demands. IT departments must balance consolidation and modernisation in the face of rigid compliance laws, increased security requisites and rolling out updated EHR (Electronic Health Record) software. Quest’s software solutions for healthcare have assisted many industry providers, insurers and hospitals internationally, facilitating data migration, management and security in Active Directory, SharePoint, Office 365, Azure AD, Exchange and OneDrive for Business.
Avera health, one of Quest’s healthcare customers, provides a case study. Recently, the organisation updated its Active Directory infrastructure in preparation for modernisation during which it provided optimum levels of patient care. To simplify data migration Avera Health amalgamated four Active Directory forests into just one.
Senior Systems Engineer for the healthcare provider, Curtis Mavity, commented on the assistance from Quest:
“Trying to plan and migrate multiple domains and forests into one Azure tenant would have been a nightmare if we didn’t modernise AD first with Quest migration solutions.”
Avera healthcare successfully completed the consolidation of its Active Directory in close to half the time estimated with absolutely no impact on its end users, zero disruption to care of patients and no data loss. The modernisation of Avera’s Active Directory also sped up the Microsoft 365 and Azure adoption, as it resulted in a reduction in costs for IT management, made simple synchronisation from on-premises to cloud and streamlined licence provisioning and purchasing in Office 365.
