MAS Helps Healthcare Company Lower Oracle Licensing CostsWe've talked a little bit before about the problems that our Master Automation Sequencer (MAS) cross-platform automater can solve for users, and wrote about the kind of cost savings MAS users could expect to see after implementing the automation engine into their IT environments.

Today I'd like to get a little more specific and talk about how a healthcare client of ours was able to overcome specific business challenges with MAS.

A Phoenix, Arizona headquartered healthcare alliance — responsible for managing a civilian healthcare benefits program covering a 16-state region for the U.S. Government — recently brought in Vendita's MAS solution to solve some of their biggest business challenges:

  • Exorbitant Oracle licensing expense
  • Inefficient system utilization
  • Complicated deployment and management of their existing Oracle Database

To comply with this healthcare company's unique criteria, MAS had to be able to support active Disaster Recovery (DR) and High Availability (HA) capabilities, while also maintaining HIPPA compliance. In their search for a solution, the company also considered infrastructure solutions, including x86 and Oracle Database Appliance (ODA), but ultimately landed on bring in MAS.

Once implemented, Vendita MAS's software bridged the technology gap and reduced the required knowledge to deploy, provision, and maintain the Oracle Database on AIX® and IBM POWER® — resulting in lower cost, faster deployment, and a more efficient IT environment for the customer.

Architected for real-time DR and HA utilizing Oracle Active Data Guard and Oracle RAC, Vendita MAS and the IBM Power Systems™ solution saved the project over $1,000,000 in Oracle software and resource costs.
