UPMC invests $100M in big data
The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC) is taking its big data initiative a step further by announcing a five-year $100 million investment to create a comprehensive data warehouse that brings together clinical, financial, administrative, genomic, and other information from more than 200 sources across UPMC, UPMC Health Plan, and other affiliated entities. To collect, store, manage, and analyze the information maintained in the data warehouse, UPMC will use the Oracle Exadata Database Machine, a high-performance database platform; IBM's Cognos software for business intelligence and financial management; Informatica's data integration platform; and dbMotion's SOA-based interoperability platform that integrates patient records from healthcare organizations and health information exchanges.
