Auckland District Health Board

With a small in-house team, Auckland District Health Board (ADHB) needed to rapidly extend an existing data warehouse running on Microsoft SQL Server to meet changing business needs. WhereScape RED gives ADHB the speed and scalability it needs to meet business reporting needs quickly and under budget.

The Challenge

The existing ADHB data warehouse only held a small fraction of the data required for enterprise reporting. The healthcare funding organization needed to extend the data warehouse in many different areas. Speed of development was a major concern. ADHB’s tight budget meant that deploying extra staff to accelerate the project was not an option.

The Solution

WhereScape RED enabled the small team at ADHB to quickly redevelop the original data warehouse environment to better support the reporting needs of the organization.

The Benefit

With WhereScape, ADHB can now respond promptly to changes to rules governing health funding and accountability. It can quickly and easily develop additional departmental data marts and data warehouses. Using WhereScape RED, ADHB is now able to take a rapid prototyping approach to evolving reporting requirements. Reports that previously tool days to produce, now take minutes.

Auckland District Health Board receives approx. $1.8 billion per year to manage health funding for the Auckland, New Zealand region, home to more than 1,400,000 people. ADHB decides on the mix, level and quality of health and disability services to be publicly funded in the central Auckland and Hauraki Gulf Island region.
