2 page Case Study posted: 05/11/2009

The Applied Information Technology Laboratory at the São Paulo State University (UnESP ), Brazil, conducts technology research projects. The lab helped doctors comply with a new XML-based standard for exchanging health data over the Internet. Researchers used Open XML Formats to embed the mandated XML schema compliant data into a form using Microsoft® Office Word 2007. Now doctors can fill out the form while simultaneously complying with the new standard.

State Agency Streamlines Processes, Lowers Costs, with Consistent Desktop Environment
4-page Case Study posted: 01/08/2009

For years, the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity (DCEO) used a multivendor, partly mainframe-based IT environment. Seeking to improve productivity and streamline processes, the agency implemented the 2007 Microsoft® Office release, including Microsoft Office SharePoint® Server 2007. In addition, the agency deployed a simple, customized user interface and a powerful Office Business Application that provides access to a vital line-of-business solution. Now, office-based and mobile employees alike can access and track documents far more easily, the agency’s grant-approval process is more efficient and provides greater accountability and transparency, agency presentations are more professional and compelling, and IT costs are down by more than U.S.$1 million yearly. Moreover, the agency is now viewed as a technology leader by other governmental entities.

Visualizing Data: Software Maker Turns Data into Visualizations That People Can Use
Business Impact Article  posted: 08/20/2007

The introduction of Microsoft® Office desktop software in the early 1990s was hugely influential in the “democratization” of the workplace. Tasks such as typing letters, sending memos, and creating financial worksheets were no longer the province of special groups of employees, such as secretaries or accountants. Anyone who had Microsoft Office programs on his or her PC could now do the work.

Healthcare Claims Detection and Recovery Provider Boosts Efficiency, Competitiveness
4-page Case Study posted: 04/12/2007

Calypso Healthcare Solutions needed a more efficient way of handling the millions of potentially overpaid claims presented to it by its customers in the health insurance industry. The firm worked with Microsoft® Partner OTB Solutions Group to replace a hybrid legacy detection-and-recovery solution with one based fully on Microsoft technologies, including the 2007 Microsoft Office system and Microsoft SQL Server™ 2005. Now Calypso can help ensure that auditors receive claims in a way that prioritizes those most likely to be overpayments and that provides powerful trend analysis. Consequently, auditors are working more efficiently, customers are recovering overpayments more rapidly, and the trending information will help them reduce the frequency of future overpayments. Further, the solution is easily expandable to help Calypso accommodate growth and maintain its competitive position.

Venezuelan Bank Saves $3 Million Per Year with a More Efficient Claims Management Process
4-page Case Study posted: 04/04/2007

A leading provider of financial services in Venezuela, Banco de Venezuela, a subsidiary of Spain’s Grupo Santander, provides a full range of banking services to more than 2 million customers. The bank wanted to improve the time to resolve customer claims and address new regulatory requirements designed to regulate customer service. The current claims system was not able to effectively track claims in process. To address compliance needs and improve efficiency of its internal claims management processes, the bank deployed Microsoft® Office Visio® 2007. With its improved processes and capabilities, it has been able to cut claims resolution time by up to 7 days, reduce time to process claims reports from 16 to 4 hours, meet regulatory requirements, and increase customer satisfaction. As a result of the new processes and technology, the bank expects to save nearly U.S.$3 million per year.

Government Agency Improves Efficiency in Fraud Investigation Process
4-page Case Study posted: 02/26/2007

The Office of the State Auditor (OSA) of Massachusetts identifies and investigates fraud against government-funded assistance programs. When the OSA absorbed the Bureau of Special Investigations and its inventory of cases from another agency, it was obvious a solution was needed to address the increased workload and create a more efficient way to process cases. Using Microsoft® Visual Studio® 2005 Tools for the Microsoft Office System, the OSA and Microsoft Gold Certified Partner Magenic Technologies built a solution using the Microsoft .NET Framework 3.0 and Microsoft Office Word 2007. Windows® Communication Foundation, along with Microsoft BizTalk® Server, integrated the solution with the OSA back-end systems to provide real-time access to data for reporting. The solution reduced data-collection times by 75 percent and allowed the agency to focus on higher value cases.

Israel Police use SQL Server 2005 Integration Services for 2-Terabyte Intelligence System
4-page Case Study posted: 02/23/2007

Israel Police needed to unite data from more than 20 intelligence applications to give its officers a faster and more efficient tool for solving crime. They needed an enterprise grade extract, transform, and load (ETL) tool for performing complex transformations on feeds before adding information to its new online analytical processing (OLAP) intelligence system. After testing Informatica PowerCenter against Microsoft® SQL Server™ 2005 Integration Services, Israeli Police decided to use Integration Services for the ETL component of its OLAP solution. The 2-terabyte intelligence system, running on a single instance of SQL Server, helps Israeli Police intelligence officers complete data searches in seconds as assembled from disparate systems. Integration Services has proven easy to incorporate into custom applications created using Microsoft Visual Studio® .NET.
