NEW YORK (GenomeWeb) – Finnish healthcare data company MediSapiens has announced it will offer its Explorer Platform on Microsoft's Azure Cloud.
To start out, the firm will offer Azure-based data curation, management, and analytics to healthcare organizations in Finland.
"Microsoft's focus on data security and regulatory compliance are perfectly matched with MediSapiens' endeavors on bringing world class genomic, clinical and biomedical big data solutions to benefit healthcare facilities and clinical research not only in Finland but globally," MediSapiens Chief Commercial Officer Marko Kuisma said in a statement. The deal means many institutions will be able to implement MediSapiens' platform on their existing IT infrastructure, he noted, adding, "Customers will be able to run heavy-duty genomic and clinical data analytics, but the data will never need to exit the customer's firewalls."
MediSapiens said it will continue to offer its solutions on its own servers, client-hosted servers, and both private and commercial cloud-based servers.
Last month, the firm joined the Canine Genomics project.
