Healthcare Data Warehousing

A Data Warehouse Solution Should Provide Easy Access to Healthcare Data

By | Blog, What's New | No Comments
The healthcare industry has been facing significant disruption in recent years, due largely to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). ACA has changed the landscape in how medical records are maintained. Many healthcare providers, especially smaller ones, had not previously implemented an electronic medical records system when ACA was first enacted. With the implementation of the ACA, the role of IT in healthcare organizations has changed significantly.  Meeting reporting deadlines has required the IT organization in healthcare to move quickly to provide easy access to data. Now that most providers are using Electronic Medical Records (EMR), the healthcare industry is in a good position for the next wave in healthcare IT. EMR has set the stage to allow healthcare systems to have greater visibility into the business and to identify opportunities for improvement across the spectrum of patient care delivery. This is made possible through a Data Warehouse and Business Intelligence (BI) solution. Compelling Benefits of a Data Warehouse and BI Solution There are many advantages to implementing a data warehouse and BI solution. The ability to slice and dice data from an EMR system opens up discussion on how you can run your healthcare system more efficiently. Let’s walk through (more…)

SAP Sybase Replication Server 15.6 | Real Time Loading into SAP Sybase IQ

By | White Papers | No Comments

SAP Sybase has developed a new, innovative and dynamic staging technology, allowing full use of the native, high-speed data load mechanism SAP Sybase IQ offers . . . Real Time Loading (RTL).

RTL addresses the need to have another system prepare the data for load by taking real time data movement from the source database, and applying staging technology to the data transfer in the background.

Up until now, the only option for loading data from an Online Transaction Processing (OLTP) database . . . airline reservation systems, financial transactions, etc., into a SAP Sybase IQ data warehouse was a so-called staging process. Staging means that the OLTP is isolated from the data warehouse loading process to ensure data integrity, due to the rapidly changing data content in the OLTP database systems.

Direct replication into SAP Sybase IQ was limited to low data movement environments. The reason lies in the fundamental differences on how SAP Sybase IQ processes data, and data movement strategies SAP Sybase Replication Server applies.

SAP Sybase IQ is a column vector database. Retrieving a single row requires assembling the row from each column component. This process makes row by row processing ineffective, and the so- called “trickle feed” loading of SAP Sybase IQ nearly impossible. The advantage of a column vector database is in the unmatched speed for complex data retrieval operations and data aggregation on huge data sets.

The Top Five Reasons to Have a Database Managed Services Contract

By | Database Technology Trends | No Comments
More and more businesses are looking at the advantages of a database managed services contract. It makes good business sense, it makes good technical sense, it makes good administrative sense. Here are five reasons to consider. Round the Clock Availability. Is your database administrator available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year? What if you have a data emergency when he or she is on vacation? With a database managed services contract, your database administrator is there regardless of business fluctuations, holidays, or time of day. The Global Talent Shortage. Your database needs to be under the care of staff with responsibility for capacity planning, installation, configuration, database design, migration, performance monitoring, security, troubleshooting, backup, and data recovery. Can your organization afford a team including a specialist in each of those ten areas? At Dobler Consulting, we cover our clients for all those specialties. Cost. How much are you paying in salaries and other costs of employment for your database administrator(s)? Much more than you would pay on a yearly contract, believe me. Another consideration: What is the cost of downtime? Measure it in lost revenue, regulatory fines, and expenditures on remediation. Under a database managed services contract, you (more…)
