Sirius extends POhWER’s information lifespan with Open Source

Open source tools and expertise used to create bridge between data structures

Sirius, the acclaimed Open Source System Integrator today announces completion of bridge construction to enable seamless data transfer from PostgreSQL to Microsoft SQL Server to provide timely reporting for POhWER.

POhWER’s repository of case notes, contacts and reviews are managed by a custom application developed by a third party in Django and supported by a PostgreSQL database. However, POhWER’s in-house team prefers to produce management reports using MSSQL reporting tools. Sirius was engaged to work with the third party and design a robust solution for regular updates for timely reporting. Sirius integration team designed a bridge to translate PostgresSQL to MSSQL on demand.

Sirius proved to be extremely reliable and responsive in helping POhWER achieve the desired outcome, made all the more pleasant by their fantastic customer service”, said Eileen Flynn of POhWER. “They have been a pleasure to work with and went above and beyond what was asked of them. I would highly recommend Sirius to anyone looking for that expertise combined with great customer service”, she added.

Sirius’ expertise in data solutions is well established. “This is a typical scenario where the application is useful on a day-to-day basis but reporting flexibility did not keep up with demand” said Alberto Serra, Senior Technical Architect at Sirius. “We have been able to help POhWER extend the life of their application and history with a solution that is nimble yet robust".

The Sirius solutions portfolio includes Identity Management, Data Management, Online Presence and Enterprise Search - all free from vendor lock-in, have lower acquisition and maintenance costs, perform to a higher standard and allow access to source code.
