The Data Warehousing Institute(TDWI) has named GoldenGate customer, Montefiore Medical Center, a winner of the 2006 Best Practices in Data Warehousing Awards. Montefiore was recognized for its approach to unlocking the value of historical, patient and medical data to improve decision support.

GoldenGate's data integration solution is used to push critical patient data from their clinical information system (CIS) application, GE Healthcare's Centricity® Enterprise, and feed the data in real time to a Sybase data warehouse and other servers for reporting purposes.

Congratulations to GoldenGate, this is one of many great customer stories I've seen during my visit to the Real-Time User Group here in Las Vegas. Another good one is the Overstock.com customer story here is a link to read it.

I also want to give GoldenGate my own personal award for best user group party (they had hand rolled cigars and a great band) and best user group food (The Four Seasons really beats a box lunch) great job Deirdre and team!!

Larry DeBoever this mornings keynote at GoldenGate's Real-Time user group made an interesting statement about real-time technology. "We are just exiting the stone age of real-time systems". Larry is the CEO and Chief Research Officer at Infonomics Research Inc. During the presentation he discussed his 8 Rules for making this happen. see image below:


Larry made some other interesting points about the speed of business and innovations effect on the need for real-time technology. My favorite was www.amazon.co.jp who rolled out a program that leverages cell phone cameras in Japan so shoppers can snap a picture of a barcode on consumer items and have Amazon give them the price on available at the website. Nokia has gone so far as to build RFID scanners into the phone for a similar purpose.

Bottom line, real-time technology is here to stay and business demands are driving it forward faster and faster.

First mornings with user groups are always fun. Assuming you are not suffering from last nights festivities and in Las Vegas that may not be an easy thing. I am proud to say that I managed to retire before midnight so I was up early and in attendance for this morning's opening sessions.

First up was company Chairman and CEO, Ali Kutay. He covered the normal state of the company stuff along with providing insights into the business drivers for GoldenGate.

Storage and Moores Law - more data, more data, more data
Growth in Transaction based data - more data, more data, more data
Heterogeneous IT Environments - different data

Are you seeing a theme?

GoldenGate is riding the growth wave and has doubled its team size since last year. Other highlights for the company include new platform support of IBM and Microsoft with others to follow, additional support for Oracle and HP, advances in working with Teradata's Active Data Warehouse and a new head of product development, Sachin Chawla.

GoldenGate seems to be spreading its wings into new verticals as well, the company was rooted in Financial Services and Healthcare and they are now focusing on communications, retail, Ecommerce, government and even gaming.

While GoldenGate has been in the space for 11 years the vibe and culture of its team and clients is that of an exciting start up. The next 2 days promise to be very interesting.

I not sure that it's a good sign that I do most of my blogging from airports? I'm at Denver International getting ready to head off for 3 days in hot, hot, hot Las Vegas. I'll be attending the GoldenGate Software user group at Mandalay Bay. The great news is that GoldenGate chose the Four Seasons as the show hotel so at least I won't have to listen to the bing, bing, bing of slots evertime I go out of my room. For those of you who have not had the pleasure, the Four Seasons at Manadalay Bay is the only strip hotel without a casino.

So watch this week for information from the event and a peek into the world of Transactional Data Management (TDM) solutions.
