NetApp at HiMSS12 Highlights

NetApp at HiMSS12 Recap


NetApp had a very successful showing at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) annual conference which was held in last week Las Vegas. The record-breaking trend continues for HiMSS12 with more than 37,000 attendees, far surpassing the HIMSS11 attendance figure of 31,500.

The conference was packet with announcements, sessions, training, and networking. It was a great team effort on NetApp’s part with lots of activity on many fronts including: customer VIP meetings, demos highlighting our integration with our leading healthcare ecosystem partners, a FlexPod live demo which turned out to be a huge attraction in our booth, record attendance for the Live Marketing presentations in our mini theater, excellent meetings with IDC, Gartner and KLAS, and a sold-out Agfa-NetApp 10-year anniversary party at FIRST Food & Bar.

With over 1,100 vendors showcasing their products, the HIMSS12 Exhibit Hall is a marvel. The three-day program offered healthcare IT professionals and clinicians more than 300 education sessions on the hottest areas in HIT including meaningful use, ICD-10, clinical and business intelligence, cloud computing, and mobile health. Our presence at the show reinforced NetApp’s standing as an innovative storage provider for healthcare. Our featured demos included NetApp unified data management and enterprise storage solutions and FlexPod for healthcare.
