GoldenGate Veridata Gains Momentum

  • September 21 2006, 1:00am EDT

GoldenGate Software Inc., a leading provider of transactional data management solutions, announced that GoldenGate Veridata, a powerful solution for comparing data between active databases, continues to gain momentum as more worldwide organizations make application availability a top priority. Among the organizations investing in GoldenGate Veridata as part of their high availability initiatives include, Montefiore Medical Center, Park Nicollet Health Services and T-Chek Systems. As organizations look to achieve the highest levels of application availability for users both inside and outside the enterprise, they are also putting more rigorous verification procedures in place to check for any data inconsistencies across different business applications which could yield unexpected results and lead to regulatory, financial or legal risks.

Network system outages and application errors are not unusual and organizations need to be fully prepared to automatically switch over to a secondary system in the event of any planned or unplanned outage. Online retailers, like, and large healthcare institutions, like Montefiore Medical Center, just cannot afford application downtime. If an outage occurs and application users are immediately switched over to the live standby system, businesses need the assurance that their failsafe data is accurate and consistent. With GoldenGate Veridata, organizations can quickly and easily confirm data consistency across disparate systems within the enterprise.

The GoldenGate Veridata solution rapidly compares large volumes of dynamic data to identify and report discrepancies, without interruption to ongoing business processes.

A recent survey conducted by the Independent Oracle Users Group (IOUG) found that key technologies that can assist high availability are of the utmost importance to organizations developing a comprehensive business continuity plan.

According to Phil Kloot, manager of HP NonStop Systems & Integration Services Information Technology at Park Nicollet Health Systems, an integrated care system based in St. Louis Park, Minn., "We place a good deal of importance on high availability because of our electronic medical record system. We don't have paper backups for most patient charts, which means that our standby system needs to be absolutely consistent with our primary. Any loss of critical patient data in a planned or unplanned outage could challenge our ability to provide patient care, making high availability and data accuracy across the enterprise top priorities."

GoldenGate Veridata is easily configurable and can be run at any time and as regularly as your business requires, with no impact to the active databases. Today, GoldenGate Veridata runs on Oracle and HP NonStop systems and it is a standalone product which does not require other GoldenGate products or solutions.
