Current/Active RITS Projects:

ELN Project (Phase 1): ELN Solutions Features Matrix 

Project Scope: The goal of this project is to create a features matrix to aid researchers in defining potential ELN solutions by comparing capabilities. Ultimately, this resource can help in capturing ELN needs on campus in order to define later pilot(s) and/or to identify where currently available solutions do not meet HMS needs.

MBIB: CBDM Filemaker Pro Soltuion

Project Scope: The goal of this project to deliver a new Filemaker-based solution​​​​​ to handle the metadata associated with ImmDiv’s NGS projects, as well as the file paths to data storage, in a more sustainable way than the current in-use solution​​. 

Start Date: 08/07/2017

 

RITS VDI- Azure PoC

Project Scope: The goal of this project is to come up with a paid POC to help develop a method to aid researchers in virtualizing their workstation needs without the purchase of expensive physical gear. 

Start Date: 10/02/2017

 

ELN Project: ELN Campus Survey 

Project Scope: The goal of this project is to gather meaningful data on the existing use of ELN solutions across HMS and to steer respondents to the existing ELN Matrix as a way to gauge potential interest in ELN solutions by those not current using ELN tools. 

Start Date: 11/14/2017
