NSW Health’s services delivery arm, HealthShare, anticipates to boost the speed of regular payroll runs by four times in the wake of a decision to roll out a new back-end business environment to support its more than 140,000 workers.

HealthShare announced that it would deploy Oracle Engineered Systems (OES), including Oracle Exadata Database Machines and Oracle Exalogic Elastic Cloud, to support its new deployment of the Oracle E-Business Suite, Fusion Middleware and Oracle Database.

The new systems will be implemented within new whole of government data centres, with applications expected to be migrated by the end of this year and systems in production by 2014.

After a business analysis confirmed a direct link between reduced data processing times and increased efficiency of service centre operations and costs, the new architecture was chosen based on its promised performance, scalability, standardisation and ability to provision for future growth.

The OES solution was expected to deliver six to eight times the computing performance of the existing platform, with HealthShare confirming that a proof of concept showed the Oracle environment was twice as fast as its nearest competitor.

An Oracle Database-as-a-Service (DBaaS) offering will be delivered by HealthShare on top of OES
