Oracle Data Migration Challenges

Oracle Argus Safety is the platform of choice for pharmaceutical safety data management. When companies make large investments in new technology, they can’t afford errors in the migration of legacy data. So why use a process that admits it will have them?

Safety data management follows a well-defined process, but different implementations represent data uniquely. The de facto approaches to data migration testing ignore lessons learned from prior similar efforts. Oracle data migration testing approaches typically rely upon sample-based methods, which are expensive, time consuming and verify only a modest proportion of migrated data. And data level “surprises” account for a significant number of over budget/schedule migration attempts.

There are also significant regulatory and business risks associated with adverse event management and pharmacovigilance.

“Thank you for your partnership during this build. After completing all validated activities and verification and releasing the system we were really impressed with the results. We could not have achieved this success without Valiance.”– Senior IT Program Manager, Global Information Technology, Medical Technology Company
