Commissioning Services Provider Uses Software-Plus-Services for Global Markets
Based in London, England, Humana Europe is a subsidiary of Humana Inc., an American health benefits company. When Humana Europe was named an approved supplier to 152 regional Primary Care Trusts (PCTs) within the United Kingdom's National Health Service, it looked for the best technologies to develop applications for the PCTs, and an optimal method for delivering them. Humana Europe chose the Microsoft Application Platform, including the Visual Studio 2008 development system to cut development time and differentiate its products with superior business intelligence and data visualization capabilities. It chose a software-plus-services model that's scalable, cost-effective, and easy for the PCTs to consume.
