ValueOptions Inc., the nation’s largest independent behavioral healthcare and wellness company, specializes in management of all behavioral issues, as well as mental health and chemical dependency diagnoses. The company’s work is driven by its guiding principle of improving behavioral health with clinically appropriate and cost-effective solutions. ValueOptions has 30 million members, spanning Fortune 500 companies; federal, state, and local governments; national and regional health plans; trust and labor groups; and universities and other academic institutions.
ValueOptions uses Oracle Database for a data warehouse and reporting solution. Due to its expanding client base and corresponding data growth—20% in 2009, 35% in 2010, and 50% in 2011—the data warehouse and storage and performance requirements have increased. In addition, the company’s customers need the ability to make better, faster use of data through reporting and analytics.
The deployment of an Oracle Exadata Half Rack at its primary site and an Oracle Exadata Quarter Rack at a secondary site, using Oracle Data Guard for replication, was achieved in just over a week.
