Innovating Healthcare with Real-time Analytics in the Cloud


Recently, AWS and Attunity ran a webinar with our joint customer, Cardinal Health, Inc., describing how Fuse by Cardinal Health, an innovation lab within Cardinal Health, is using Attunity Replicate to move real-time data from multiple sources to enable modern analytics as part of an initiative to change the future of healthcare and wellness.

The webinar was led by Pratap Ramamurthy, Solutions Architect at Amazon Web Services who explained how the AWS Cloud and the AWS Marketplace accelerates cloud success. Pratap was followed by Jordan Martz, Director of Technology Solutions at Attunity, who explained how Attunity Replicate moves data in real-time to the AWS Cloud with zero downtime. Next on the agenda was Jeff Graham, Principal Data Engineer at Fuse Labs who discussed how Cardinal Health leverages data for innovative healthcare.

As part of his presentation, Jeff explained that his team was looking for a better way to work with complex healthcare data. They needed a solution that would:

Handle a variety of data sources with a minimum amount of moving parts

  • Handle bulk historical loads and real-time data elegantly
  • Play nice’ with source systems; minimal footprint and performance impacts
  • Replicate data into different data stores and analysis tools
  • Minimize time spent on data migration so we can focus on analysis

The Fuse team chose Attunity Replicate as part of a Lambda architecture to move clinical data from SQL, Oracle, and other sources into AWS for therapy research. This gave Fuse a tremendous advantage because they could analyze data in real time.

Clinical Systems Attunity Replicate DiagramLeveraging Attunity and AWS technology, resulted in these benefits for Jeff’s team:

  • Flexibility: They can source unknown data sources same day.
  • Management: They need half the time of one person vs. a team of five or more people
  • Focus: They spend time discovering trends and insights, not shepherding data.

“Organizations like Cardinal Health are turning to the cloud to develop innovative ways to manage and analyze data and improve services for their customers,” said Ken Chestnut, Global Segment Lead, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “Attunity Replicate helps companies move data from legacy data stores to AWS to increase agility and improve affordability.”

“To stay competitive, organizations like Cardinal Health need a way to analyze huge volumes of data and make it available in real time”, said Itamar Ankorion, Chief Marketing Officer, Attunity he adds that “Attunity recently achieved AWS Migration Competency Partner status. This designation recognizes that Attunity, an Advanced Technology Partner in the AWS Partner Network (APN) with a 5-star rating on AWS Marketplace, has demonstrated proven success in helping our customers accelerate data migrations from many data sources including enterprise databases and data warehouses, SAP and legacy mainframes, to Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), Amazon Elastic MapReduce (Amazon EMR) and other data-related services.”
