Leading Healthcare IT Company Improves Proactive Support with “Top-Down” Application Management
Redwood Shores, Calif. 01-APR-2008 05:05 AM
McKesson Corporation, a leading healthcare IT company and one of the longest operating pharmaceutical distributors in North America, has deployed Oracle® Enterprise Manager to manage its customers’ diverse applications and IT infrastructures in a centrally managed environment.
Founded in 1833, McKesson distributes one-third of all medicines used in North America and has applications and IT solutions installed in more than 70 percent of the nation’s large hospitals. To provide its customers with continued competitive advantage and improve operations of their highly complex IT environments, McKesson deployed Oracle Enterprise Manager 10g Release 3 in March 2007.
McKesson sought reliable application management software that would span applications, middleware and databases to enable them to monitor service levels, diagnose issues at any level of the IT stack and proactively alert application customers to potential business impacts.
With Oracle Enterprise Manager, McKesson reduced the complexity and cost of administering applications and the underlying infrastructure while helping to ensure that all critical care systems meet increasingly stringent availability and performance requirements.
Oracle Enterprise Manager enables McKesson to better manage its customers� evolving infrastructures, including the ability to:
Monitor the entire application environment, proactively measure users’ experience and identify the root cause of problems regardless of where they occur in the application stack;
Anticipate potential problems and proactively resolve issues before end-users or service levels are affected;
Automatically provision new servers to deal with an influx of performance issues, and later de-provision those servers when they are no longer needed;
Maximize uptime with grid computing capabilities; and,
Manage changing and disparate environments from a single management system.
Michael Simpson, Senior Vice President and General Manager Horizon Clinicals, McKesson Technology Solutions:
“Hospitals today could have anywhere from 100 to 150 disparate applications all running on different platforms. With Oracle Enterprise Manager, we now have the ability to manage those disparate applications across settings, and to make sure that all of those applications stay up and running and improve application availability, provisioning and de-provisioning with a single, integrated solution.”
“We now have one common management tool with Oracle Enterprise Manager. By providing a common top-down approach to managing applications and system components, Oracle Enterprise Manager helps us deliver on our commitment to customers. The results speak for themselves — better quality of service and improved business performance.”
