VMware Asks VertitechIT to Show Hospitals How to Do More With Less


HOLYOKE, MA August 22, 2016 — For the second year in a row, global cloud infrastructure leader VMware, has invited VertitechIT to be a featured presenter at one of the world’s largest IT industry gatherings.  VMworld will be held August 28th through September 1st in Las Vegas.

VertitechIT Chief Executive Officer Michael Feld, who also serves as a senior healthcare IT consultant to Baystate Health System in Springfield, MA, Lancaster General Health in Lancaster, PA, and Temple University Health in Philadelphia, PA, will address convention attendees on the subject of extending IT resources in a time of budget cuts and increased responsibilities.

“Hospitals are losing money, piling up debt, and seeing downgrades in their credit ratings and yet they’re being asked to take on more responsibilities as a result of government mandates and advances in patient care,” says Feld.  His VMworld presentations will center on software standardization and hyper-convergence, a method of standardizing compute, network, and storage on commodity hardware.  VertitechIT healthcare clients have saved millions of dollars over the last two years by implementing hyper-converged infrastructures.

Feld will also appear live during VMworld on the Cube, the leading on line interview show covering enterprise technology and innovation.  The segment will be broadcast on Tuesday August 30th from 2:30 to 2:50 PST on SiliconANGLE TV (http://live.siliconangle.tv/).
