Large state agency responsible for healthcare and social services record-keeping and providing vital statistics, population records, and healthcare emergency management.
The client had several systems hosted on unconsolidated servers that could no longer be supported or sustained into the future.
Loblolly managed four workstreams to accomplish the main goals of migrating these systems to the State Data Center. The project scope included:
- Migrate and Update a Financial File Integration System
Loblolly worked with the client to identify the hardware specifications for this system, worked with the vendor to update the system for the new hardware, and managed the user acceptance testing (UAT) to validate that the new environment was ready for production deployment.
- Migrate and Update a Financial File Share System
Loblolly worked with the client to identify the hardware specifications for this system, worked with the client to update the system for the new hardware, and managed the user acceptance testing to validate the new environment was ready for production deployment.
- Migrate an Epidemiological System
Loblolly worked with the client to migrate this system to a cloud-hosted environment. The cloud-hosted environment provided access to the system for local health departments that were not on the state network, and who did not previously have access.
- Migrate a Public Health Records Gateway
Loblolly worked with the client to assess if this system could be hosted in a cloud environment. The system had security requirements that could not be met by the cloud and this system was migrated to the State Data Center.
Loblolly Staff Role: Project Manager
Client Staff Roles: Provided Subject Matter Expertise for business and technical questions and support. Provided technical support for network engineering, database administration, and systems analyst.
These systems were successfully upgraded and migrated from their unconsolidated data center to a State Data Center, either on-premise or cloud-hosted.
The goals and objectives of this project were successfully achieved. As a current client, the agency will continue to identify any additional systems that need to be migrated to the State Data Center or a cloud hosted environment.
