Key Challenge

The Client’s legacy data warehouse was developed 10+ years ago and resided on an Oracle Database Server. They wanted to deploy Epic’s Caboodle Warehouse, which runs on Microsoft SQL Server. The challenge was to recreate the reports and extracts that were being served by the Oracle DW to be instead served from Clarity or Caboodle.

Engagement Overview

  • Data Extracts migration | 314e’s team automated several jobs that retrieve the data out of their enterprise data warehouse. The data was exported as a flat file and then sent over secure FTP to an internal or 3rd party agency that consumed the data for reporting purposes
  • Business Objects universe migration | 314e’s team migrated several business objects universes to extract data from Caboodle warehouse instead of legacy data marts
  • Reports (Crystal & WebI) Migration
  • Database programming using PL/SQL as well as T-SQL
  • Migration of a data warehouse from Oracle to MS SQL Server
  • Migration of Financial & Readmissions data marts to Caboodle to support WebI reports migration
  • Custom data mart and dashboard creation

Business Outcomes By partnering with the 314e team, The Client realized the benefits of using the specialized talent needed for such projects. In addition, the client realized significant savings in the costs as compared to the original estimates.
