Analytics Deployment at Speed

Automated deployment reducing costs and saving time

Dudley CCG

NHS Dudley CCG is the NHS organisation responsible for commissioning (planning and buying) healthcare services for over 300,000 people registered with a GP in Dudley. This includes all GP Practices across six Primary Care Networks.

The Challenge

Viya, the cloud analytics platform from SAS needed deployment but there were many manual activities which could slow the process down. Automation, using Ansible playbooks was our chosen route.

The Solution

The automation process involved Cloudformation scripts, Security enhanced Linux, Java Run Time and Tomcat. We also set up the SAS users and roles configuring SSL and single sign on for the Viya application.

The use of Cloudformation and Ansible to fully automate the deployment enabled an incredibly quick delivery.

The People

The Result

The production environment was able to be built, from scratch, within 2 hours. This kept costs to a minimum and delivered a stable and robust platform for end users from day one.

This process also provided an ability to build an environment in the event of a disaster. We pride ourselves on reducing complexity for our clients, which ultimately allows them to concentrate on growth and efficiency.
