Skip to comments.Oregon health exchange turns up heat on Oracle over programming 'bugs'
Posted on 12/23/2013 5:27:55 PM PST by steve86
As Oracle Corp. programmers try to fix problems with its work on the state's health insurance website, Cover Oregon is bringing in outside experts to make sure the company isn't adding new bugs at the same time.
The exchange's interim director, Bruce Goldberg, said Monday he's hiring people with the skills to look at programming code as it is being written to ensure "it is done correctly and we don't have to continue to go back and fix bugs in the system."
Goldberg's statement turns up the heat on Oracle and provides perhaps the most direct acknowledgement yet that the exchange's questions about Oracle's work quality are ongoing, despite repeated new infusions of talent by the firm and promises to make things right.

Still no enrollments thru the eXchange
Bruce must've just enrolled in an online IT program yesterday and hasn't taken his first class yet. I hope he is hiring even more people with the skills to look at the work done by the people with the skills to look at the code written by the programmers. That's the right way to do it.
Money for nothin’ and your chips for free...
har de har har
Yeah - get deeper in bed with Larry Ellison and crew. That’s the ticket.
An Oracle project running late and over budget?! Wow thats the first time in history that has happened.
My one and only experience with Oracle was not fun. It was long drawn out agony.
I feel like the U.S has set computing back 30 years.
It’s not a bug, it’s a feature!
Ellison even looks like Satan.
When we used Microsoft SQL Server, Visual Studio, C#, and Test Driven Design we didn’t have this level of problems.
Oregon democrats are missing brain cells. They are also lazy.
They had been warned at least a day ahead that a creek would flood, but they didn’t move state cars out of a parking lot. This cost the tax payers a crap load of money. More than 100 vehicles were lost.
Care Oregon is just one in a long line of money wasting mistakes made by dumb, lazy Oregon Dems.
Yesterday I was a community organizer; today I is computer programmer.
But Oracle has decades of experience producing systems under these conditions (changing requirements, insufficient testing, and impossible combinations of features). How could this happen with Oracle in charge?
Wonder if Bruce’s brother is Rube?
Bugs? What do they want, perfection? It’s close enough for government work.
Failure is not an option!
It comes bundled with Oracle!
True, they seem to be experts at FAIL
Just why aren’t they forced to give taxpayers a refund? Pure theft...criminals.
Send it Offshore!!!
Better check with Nancy.
There are so many contradictory requirements in this 2,200 page monstrosity, that when combined with the resulting 15,000 pages of Regulation, it is IMPOSSIBLE to program a coherent application.
