Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin (CHW) had an outdated PeopleSoft platform that posed significant risks. Their on-premises data center was aging and did not have an effective Disaster Recovery solution. Thanks to a quick, affordable lift-and-shift upgrade to PeopleSoft running on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), CHW has saved time, lowered total cost of ownership and reduced risk, all while transforming their IT organization from a cost center to a value provider.
CHW’s IT department was concerned that their hardware and software were no longer actively supported by the vendor with upgrades, patches and technical support. They needed to address the risks that came along with these end-of-life technology challenges, including security vulnerabilities, software incompatibility, compliance issues, poor performance and higher support costs.
