Executive Vice President’s Letter

Paul J. Holenstein

Paul J. Holenstein, Executive Vice President

Welcome to our Fall 2018 Shadowbase Products Group Newsletter! Thank you for your continued interest in HPE Shadowbase software.

Gravic’s HPE Shadowbase data replication product won the Gold Stevie Award in the category for Best New Product or Service of the Year – Software – Healthcare Technology Solution at the 16th Annual American Business Awards (ABA). It is always an honor to be recognized for the various ways our solutions help our customers solve their pressing business challenges. For more information regarding our submission, please read Prescription Drug Fraud Prevention – An HPE Shadowbase Data Integration Case Study. This case study discusses how HPE Shadowbase solutions provided a large government healthcare agency real-time prescription drug claims data in order to decrease costs, prevent fraud, stem drug abuse, and aid law enforcement. HPE Shadowbase software is now on the forefront of trying to rein in the worst of the abuses and assisting authorities to prevent the problem from worsening.

These past summer and fall seasons have been busy for us. We met with various HPE and customer groups all over the world as we continue to educate and to be educated on data replication technology. I say “we educate” because we often spend a fair amount of time training regional groups on the HPE Shadowbase software platform and the various data replication solutions it provides. However, we also “get educated” by listening to what the field personnel and customers actually need, and then working to satisfy those needs with our product line. In many cases, we are able to assist with innovative ways to use our existing solutions. In other cases, we have to rethink the problem and often end up creating new features to help provide a solution. It is all just part of our company’s Improving Society through Innovation mission statement, and we are happy to be a part of providing solutions to our customers. See our Product Management section for more details on our recent product additions.

Since our traditional NonStop market is a crowded one with many competing solutions, many of our discussions are directed at how to assist a customer with migrating to HPE Shadowbase solutions so that it can take advantage of some key or differentiating feature. Most of the time, the customer wants to accomplish this task without application service downtime, and with the least amount of disruption as possible to its existing operations. Fortunately, HPE Shadowbase technology provides the tools to make these transitions safe and relatively easy, using our HPE Shadowbase Zero Downtime Migration (ZDM) technology. If this situation sounds like a similar one that you face, please review our recent article series on Switching Replication Engines with Zero Downtime (3 parts).

It has been a busy tradeshow season as well. In late spring, we presented at LATUG (Santiago, Chile), and in May, co-sponsored an informative and productive Partner Technical Update (PTU) for HPE Sales, Business Development, Technical Services, and Solution Architects in Leipzig, Germany. This fall, we presented HPE Shadowbase Product Update and Extended Use Cases at the regional meetings for OZTUG (Sydney and Melbourne), ATUG (Atlanta), CTUG (Toronto), and MEXTUG (Mexico City). For more information, please visit our News web page. We hope that you were either able to meet with us or plan to attend and meet with us at one of the upcoming regional meetings or global conferences. Please contact us if you would like to set up similar meetings with your customers, HPE sales, pre-sales, and/or solution architect teams.

If you are attending the HPE NonStop TBC event next week, please stop by Booth #11 and/or attend one of our presentations. We look forward to meeting you and sharing ideas regarding how the HPE Shadowbase product suite can provide solutions to your most pressing business issues for business continuity, data integration and synchronization, and application integration.

We also hope that you enjoy reading our latest Published Articles and Solution Briefs, and viewing our Presentation or Use Cases web pages featuring the latest HPE Shadowbase solutions. We appreciate your interest in our products. Please contact us with any questions that you may have. We look forward to hearing from you!

With warm regards,
