If your company is moving from Oracle Clinical (OC)/TMS to DMW/TMS we have a solution in place for bringing over the TMS Learnings (VTAs) that your medical coders have created over the past many years.
The number of manually created TMS codings is typically in the houndreds of thousands for large pharmas coducting many large scale trials.
Most companies want to bring over the TMS Knowledge database when migrating to a new platform, e.g. DMW/TMS, where TMS is new fresh install with new dictionaries and no previous coding knowledge (VTAs).
Note: TMS Learnings (VTAs) can be created in TMS target system prior to verbatim arriving from DMW.
TMS VTA copy solution can be used for:
Migration of TMS knowledge database from OC/TMS -> DMW/TMS
Migration of TMS knowledge database from one environment to another, e.g. Prod to Train for training of medical coders.
Contact us if Your company is interested in hearning more about our solutions for bringing over TMS learnings from one TMS source instance to another TMS target instance, e.g. if your company is moving from OC/TMS to DWM/TMS, or if you want to copy the TMS knowledge database from one TMS instance to another, e.g. copy from TMS production to TMS training environment.
OC: Oracle Clinical | DMW: Data Management Workbench | TMS: Thesaurus Management System | VTA: Verbatim Term Assignment (TMS learning created during manual coding (classification) of verbatim term to a dictionary term).

How to list logon/logoff sessions in the Oracle (Clinical) database including failed logins?
Example for Oracle 11g database (OC 4.6.x)
Logon to SQL*Plus or TOAD as DBA user in the Oracle database with access to DBA system views and tables.
SQL query DBA Audit Session
/* Logon/Logoffs using referencing lookup function for returning error message for return (error) code */
to_char(timestamp,'YYYYMMDD HH24:MI:SS') timestamp,
to_char(logoff_time,'YYYYMMDD HH24:MI:SS') logoff_time,
where 1=1 -- timestamp > sysdate-7
AND username like '%' -- = 'OPS$<init>' -- OC users are prefixed with OPS$
and returncode <> 0 -- <> 0 to list failed logins
--and logoff_time is not null
order by 5 desc;
Function used to return error message from error code (return code)
create or replace function get_ora_error_message(p_ora_number in number) return varchar2 is
v_msg := sqlerrm(p_ora_number);
Return codes and messages (commonly seen)
ORA-01017: invalid username/password; logon denied
ORA-01045: user lacks CREATE SESSION privilege; logon denied
ORA-03136: inbound connection timed out
ORA-28000: the account is locked
ORA-28001: the password has expired
ORA-28003: password verification for the specified password failed
ORA-28007: the password cannot be reused
ORA-28043: invalid bind credentials for DB-OID connection
Oracle are currently working on an OC 5.2 / TMS 5.2 version that are targeted for 2nd half of 2017. The 5.2 version comes with a technology update on the middle-tier now using Oracle WebLogic server 12c, and support for Microsoft Edge Web browser for Windows 10 on web-clients.
For existing customers on OC/TMS versions 4.6.6, 5.0.1 or 5.1, this is an opportunity to plan for a final and most likely last upgrade of OC/TMS from Oracle.
From release date of OC/TMS 5.2 you can expect 5 years of support.
Oracle are encouraging OC/TMS/RDC customers to switch to its Health Sciences solutions based on Oracle Life Sciences Hub (LSH), Data Management Workbench (DMW) and Inform (EDC cloud solution).
