UC Office of the President business recognized the need for a single, centralized risk management system. The IT organization was not prepared for the scale and complexity of managing data from a variety of internal and external sources while ensuring that UC’s data was secured to necessary regulatory standards.
In partnership with Sherlock, the initial RDMS solution was conceptualized and hosted within Sherlock’s secure enclave as a Hadoop-based data platform. Recently, it was refactored to a commercial cloud environment, taking advantage of a modern data platform. This has provided significant cost savings, enhanced security, and improved scalability to deliver stakeholder data and insight in an expeditious manner.
RDMS enabled UC administration to collect and share event reports, patient experience feedback, and employee injury data for improved reporting, analysis, and forecasting. By giving stakeholders an easy and secure way to access data and reports such as systemwide benchmarking metrics and dashboards, the Office of the President is able to make informed decisions, and provide insight for California governing bodies.
“The Sherlock team was able to seamlessly take our data and application infrastructure from an open environment to their secure environment in 6 months. This aggressive timeline would not have been feasible absent the expertise and necessary skillset possessed by Sherlock. The end product has greatly helped secure our data and applications, and we are extremely pleased with the outcome.”
