Cerner taps HP Vertica Analytics Platform for healthcare providers


Healthcare delivery systems provider Cerner Corporation is using the HP Vertica Analytics Platform as part of its high-end solutions for healthcare providers.

Cerner selected the HP Vertica Analytics Platform to displace a legacy data warehousing solution that was reaching the upper limits of its analytics capacity. Cerner experienced almost a 100-fold increase in data analytics speed.

“The HP Vertica Analytics Platform delivers the speed and massive scalability we need to meet the demanding performance standards we have for our healthcare provider solutions,” said Bill Graff, senior vice president, Cerner Technology Services.

HP HAVEn, the company’s recently announced big data analytics platform, leverages HP’s analytics software, hardware and services to create the next generation of big data–ready analytics applications and solutions.

In addition, HP HAVEn combines proven technologies from HP Autonomy, HP Vertica and HP ArcSight, as well as key industry initiatives such as Hadoop, to enable clients and partners to gain value from 100 percent of their information and speeding time to value.

HP Vertica Analytics Platform has allowed Cerner to dramatically improve the performance monitoring of its Cerner Millennium solution. HP Vertica also has improved the data handling capacity of Cerner’s Health Facts platform.

“Cerner is at the leading edge of information analysis for health care providers, and we believe the HP Vertica Analytics Platform, as part of the HAVEn initiative, gives them an edge in loading, managing and analyzing their data,” said Colin Mahony, senior vice president and general manager, Vertica, HP.
