Blame it on… Oracle style

The Oracle version of HealthCare.gov. Let’s see:

  1. Jeff Merkley places Cover Oregon blame solely on its contractor: Oracle:

    “Oracle was contracted to deliver the exchange,” Merkley said, “they promised it would be fairly delivered on time and it’s in complete dysfunction.”

  2. Could A Tech Giant Build A Better Health Exchange? Maybe Not :

    Oregon has spent more than $40 million to build its own online health care exchange. It gave that money to a Silicon Valley titan, Oracle, but the result has been a disaster of missed deadlines, a nonworking website and a state forced to process thousands of insurance applications on paper.

    Some Oregon officials were sounding alarms about the tech company’s work on the state’s online health care exchange as early as last spring. Oracle was behind schedule and, worse, didn’t seem able to offer an estimate of what it would take to get the state’s online exchange up and running.

  3. Technology Delays Plague Cover Oregon:

    The biggest reason Cover Oregon’s website lags behind is because Oracle didn’t meet its deadline and should have begun testing last May, rather than delaying until this summer when it was too late to resolve the problems it encountered, King said. Oracle has been paid handsomely by Cover Oregon for its consulting and software development. It’s received $43.2 million this year – accounting for $11.1 for hardware, $9.5 million for software and $22.6 million for consulting.

So even if you use Oracle for everything—hardware, software, and consulting payed with a paltry $43.2mil in 2013, you can still fail? What a surprise!

✚ Who’ll take the blame if HealthCare.gov and Cover Oregon would just switch their contractors?

✚ Could we have these played on repeat for those blaming MarkLogic for HealthCare.gov’s failure? Also for those that accepted this excuse?
