IT Services for Medical Offices

In this day and age, nearly every industry relies on technology to make its day-to-day operations run smoothly. Whether it’s your point of sale, shared files, or the storage of sensitive information, you depend on these systems to work without interruption, so that you can do the same. High-quality, reliable IT services are especially crucial to the medical industry. Patient data, workflow systems, and personal computers are just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the combination of medical bookkeeping and technology.

What to Look for When Choosing a Cloud Storage Provider

As cloud storage technology is becoming more widely used across all industries, many companies are making the switch to Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS). The important question is what should you look for when choosing a cloud storage provider that's right for you. 

Cartika Compliance

Since its beginnings in 1999, Cartika has offered platforms, infrastructure, and software as a service as a trusted partner to its clients. Now in 2018, we are becoming ever moreaware of the importance of keeping personal data safe. In Canada, Cartika has upheld the requirements as laid out in PIPEDA since it’s passing into effect in 2004. PIPEDA recognizes not only the importance of protecting your personal data, but also the need of organizations such as Cartika to responsibly collect and disclose this information.

Cartika launches Big Data to round out our Managed Services and IaaS Compliance initiatives

After nearly 20 years providing Managed Infrastructure Services, Cartika has continually evolved our services and now integrating Big Data into our offerings to keep up with the ever-changing reality of Data Services and Cloud Computing. With the NSA toolkits being made public last year, security and breaches both increased in severity and frequency. Sadly, as we slowly discovered, the NSA toolkits did not just impact a few out of maintenance Windows Operating Systems as was originally reported. Every Operating System was impacted to various degrees, and the "toolkits" themselves was more than just a pre-fab set of existing hacks, they were literally a set of "toolkits" that became weaponized in the hands of skilled hackers across the globe. Organizations were simply not prepared to handle breaches of this scale and magnitude, leaving software and Operating System vendors scrambling to patch software, and IT departments scrambling to ensure their data, and their customer's data was safe. Resultant outcry regarding data security and privacy has resulted in new compliance standards (ie GDPR) being created, as well as restructuring existing compliance requirements (PIPEDA, HIPAA, SOX/FISMA) to modernize their scope and penalties in cases where compliance is not met.

Migration from ANY Environment!

The following article first appeared February 2018 in SuperbCrew. Cartika provides cloud-based infrastructure and platforms, that are tailored to our customer’s unique needs. To learn more about the company see our recent interview below with Andrew Rouchotas, CEO at Cartika: Q: Andrew, tell us something more about the company? A: Where we’ve made a mark for ourselves is with pro-actively managed infrastructure, and application stacks. As the market needs have become more sophisticated and evolved, so has our focus. Our humble beginnings were in 1999 as an application hosting and support firm, evolving to platform and infrastructure hosting. We added colocation facilities & Network Operations Centers in Dallas and Toronto, with development offices today in Russia and the Ukraine, as well. Q: What made you restructure your offerings? A: Our customers were looking for more than plain vanilla support. They wanted a partner who could solve their problems before they had them. IT departments should be focused on internal applications and support, which keep their teams productive. It isn’t the best use of their time to be managing the computing environment, keeping up with the latest updates, patches and usage trends. We can manage all that for them with greater reliability – and better resource utilization.

Smarter Partners

At Cartika, we’re always looking at how we can make cloud infrastructure more effective. To this end, we’ve been adding a number of new partners who extend our – and your – capabilities. Andrew, our boss, has always said that he wants to work with people that are specialized, and smarter in their field than he is. We hope that means us! This same philosophy has permeated Cartika’s strategic partnering. When we look at potential partners, we’re not only looking for experts in their field, but we’re also looking for how we can each be better – and provide more seamless service to you. If, for example, we can optimize infrastructure to accelerate results with their platform, that’s a great reason to partner.
