"We help clinics manage their workflows and move patients through the system much faster, without compromising clinical and patient care standards,” said Kim Wagner Jensen, Auditbase Business and Customer Care Director.
When Auditbase was developed in the early 1990s, the company needed a database that could be embedded in the application. According to Wagner Jensen, “It was very important for us to have a database engine that would be integrated with the development environment. It was also very important that the database solution have low maintenance requirements.”
The company selected OpenText™ Gupta SQLBase as its main database server component. A high-performance embedded database, Gupta SQLBase offers automated mass deployment, configuration and maintenance. Ideal for environments with limited IT support, the solution allows for easy integration with varied development tools.
“The right choice for us then was OpenText Gupta SQLBase, and it would still be the best choice today,” said Wagner Jensen. “For more than 25 years, it has been possible for us to stay on Gupta SQLBase as our primary database engine. Today, it is a mature part of our product portfolio.”
“More than 80 percent of hospitals in the UK and Scandinavia now use the Auditbase solution. In fact, we have more than 200 Auditbase customers, covering more than 500 hospitals, with roughly 5,000 daily users,” reported Wagner Jensen.
Since Auditdata resells Gupta SQLBase to its customers, the company counts the product’s simple licensing, mass deployment, automated configuration and low maintenance as key factors in Auditbase’s success.
Auditdata uses the Gupta SQLBase’s Embedded Deployment Pack (EDP) tool to build its own Gupta SQLBase installations to deploy to its customers. “The most important benefits for us include OpenText Gupta SQLBase’s easy licensing and mass deployment. Those are really critical for us,” said Wagner Jensen.
Auditdata has also benefited from the solution’s close integration with many development tools. Wagner Jensen noted, “The system has integrated easily and well with multiple and vast-scale hospital systems."
As its main platform for building client applications, the company uses OpenText™ Gupta Team Developer (TD). It is a complete development solution that includes an integrated development environment (SQLWindows), UX assembly kit, connectivity to databases and services, a database for development and testing and a reporting tool.
