Healthcare to spend $518 million on infrastructure as a service in the U.S.


Healthcare has been a growth vertical in US business
markets, and recent In-Stat research supports a forecast of continued growth,
with healthcare spending $518 million on IaaS (Infrastructure as a Service) in


Overall telecom spending by the healthcare and social
services vertical was just under $16 billion in 2010. Wireless is the largest
of the product categories, comprising about 40 percent of telecom spending.
Cloud computing and managed services are the fasting growing component.
Wireline data and wireline voice comprise the remainder of the telecom spend.


The healthcare vertical segment, across all sizes of
business, and across nearly all product groups, is fast becoming the most
robust business vertical segment in US business markets. Demand for cloud
computing services in particular has exploded and we see nothing that would
indicate that the trend won’t continue at least through 2015,” said Greg
Potter, Analyst, In-Stat.


The research forecasts small businesses with 20 to 99
employees will be the fastest growing size segment in healthcare, growing over
35 percent from 2010 to 2015.


Enterprise wireless spending in healthcare will increase
roughly 12 percent from 2010 to 2011 and Healthcare public cloud computing
spending will surpass $1 billion in 2013.
