  • Big Data Case Study

    Business Challenge

    Company growth led this IT healthcare company to work with C2. They had outgrown their data management platform and were handling 6.5 billion data transactions a year. The company had invested in an Oracle Exadata Database, but had not been able to complete the implementation and migration necessary due to lack of internal resources. The Exadata solution also required performance optimization and reporting across the organization.

    Our Approach

    C2 provided a current state assessment and a recommendation based on the results. We then worked with the client to validate the approach and organize the project into a detailed work plan. Migrating from a legacy system to Exadata required a collaborative approach. Our team of experts worked closely with internal staff to complete the data migration and implement the platform enhancements. During this engagement we collaborated with the client during the planning and review meetings and provided shadowing opportunities as work was delivered to ensure a smooth knowledge transfer. Documentation was completed along with daily progress tracking visible to project stakeholders. Our team of specialized consultants on the project included the following roles:

    • Project Manager
    • Lead Architect
    • Database Administrators
    • ETL Developers

    The client approved our recommendations and we proceeded to design and build the solution. We developed the complex application using the Microsoft .NET platform. The application featured a robust calculation engine and full integration to other interdependent systems. In addition to the “industrial strength” back-end, the application has a rich user interface for CRM and features that supported their evolving business needs.

    The Result

    We successfully moved all the data on time and under budget. Because we had budget dollars left, we were also able to optimize Exadata from its default settings for consistency across environments. The outcome was a successful migration. This success not only allowed the client’s employees to complete their jobs more efficiently, it helped our client connect and share health information faster, which ultimately saves time, money and improves quality of care.
