Migration Guide: eGate to Ensemble

Now available: Migration Guide: From Oracle eGate to InterSystems Ensemble®

Many hospital and health systems are being faced with major decisions and challenges concerning interface engine conversion and migration due to DataGate/eGate and eBiz hitting the end-of-life mark. Interface engines are responsible for the critical flow and orchestration of financial, administrative, and clinical data. Disrupting that data flow takes a high level of project organization. Even if an organization is not being forced to replace their interface engine due to expiration, the smartest organizations are working to expand their interoperability particularly with the increased capabilities of contemporary EHRs.

Our series of Migration Guides is based on recommendations designed to ease the pain of migration projects and looks at the role Caristix Workgroup software in facilitating the process while reducing costs and maintaining project timelines.

Developers commonly jump right into the code with incomplete requirements and a flawed knowledge of the data to be exchanged. Teams quickly run into problems with this reiterative trial and error loop. This chaos makes it impossible to predict project timelines and to guarantee complete coverage of issues before moving into production.

How do you fix those problems? We’re proposing a step by step approach to speed up eGate to Ensemble migration project execution throughout the five stages of interface engine migration:

    1. Gather interface requirements
    2. Setup the new interface
    3. Migrate the interface
    4. Validate the new interface
    5. Move into production

 

These workflow recommendations are scalable in terms of the number of interfaces addressed. We particularly focus on validation to increase overall team productivity and prevent reiterative break-fix repairs in final production. The recommended workflow remains valid even if you do not use the recommended tools and is applicable to migration to different integration engine technologies with some variance.
