Customer Use Cases
MAS Business Use Case: Healthcare
The organization was experiencing an increased need for better performance from their Oracle Database servers. The growing cost of managing, maintaining and upgrading these underperforming and inefficiently utilized servers was putting overwhelming stress on the company’s budget as well as their ability to meet the needs of their customers. A lack of skilled IT resources compounded these problems and resulted in delayed database upgrades, poor system utilization and unnecessary expenses. The business required a HIPPA compliant solution that reduced license cost, maximized system utilization, rapidly deployed and automated Oracle Database and supported an active disaster recovery/high availability capability.
The introduction of MAS filled the technical proficiency gap, allowed increased productivity and extended the capabilities of existing IT employees. It reduced the company’s Oracle software footprint by 33%, saving over $1,000,000. Additionally, it reduced IT resource requirement by 1 FT, increased time to value for hardware platform by shrinking deployment and provisioning time by over 50% and finally reduced total overall cost and reliance on specialized resources.
