“By way of a final postscript to my involvement in the project, I just wanted to put a few words together as a testament to the work carried out by your team. I know that you will receive thanks from the client and others for the successful delivery, however as one who has had a detailed external view of the technical landscape of the project I just wanted to say…””Although they might sound simple, Oracle upgrades pose many hidden technical challenges and, as a result, even simple upgrade projects frequently fail. The NHSBT upgrade was certainly not simple, in fact it is the most complex Oracle upgrade I have seen during my 25 years as an Oracle consultant: The change of Oracle version, Operating System, underlying hardware, management tools, backup infrastructure and monitoring infrastructure posed many technical challenges. However these challenges were magnified by the critical importance of the data and the exacting timescales and client scrutiny imposed by the need to limit downtime to an absolute minimum.”

“As you are aware, 70Gb of raw medical data had to be migrated in over 40 distinct batches, running in up to 10 parallel streams so that the prescribed downtime window could be fulfilled. The need to deliver this highly complex migration to strict timescales without loss of data or contention required an almost perfect project delivery. That is what your team delivered; a highly complex piece of work, delivered flawlessly. In short, a world class effort, so well done! It is a testament not only to the team’s high level of technical competence, but also to the enormous amount of hard work and meticulous attention to detail that they have achieved such a demanding requirement.”

“Therefore I hope that this note is of some help in helping the team achieve the merit they undoubtedly deserve and also of providing an external technical testament of Savant’s delivery on this project. On a personal note, I just want to finish by saying that it has been a pleasure visiting Savant’s offices and working with you all. No doubt we will work together again in the future.”
