IT Architecture Planning & Guidebook (specifically to be implemented as a wiki)
Completed, the content is available for on-going reference and discussion.
Proposed templates and review process have been proposed, but no standing committee or regular review has yet been implemented.
Subversion has been implemented in production and socialized within the UTS integration team and parts of R&HS. We need to continue to educate and train staff to use Subversion and organize content appropriately into the future.
Subversion has been implemented in production and is in use for managing configurations of new SOA and Java applications. We need to continue to educate and train staff to use Subversion for other appropriate types of configurations.
Completed extensive proof-of-concept initiatives and we are presently implementing the EAI and SOA infrastructure in development. The architecture and integration teams have completed extensive training and UTS, R&HS, and OIT Architecture have implemented several integrations already using these technologies.
Completed the process convening the Architecture Review Team and integrating the architecture review into UTS project management lifecycle. Research & Health Sciences has begun participating in the architecture review.
Completed the selection, development, and packaging of a model office application (Job Family System) and re-implemented this application in Flex, a new rich internet application (RIA) framework. Next we should complete an assessment of current web application architectures throughout OIT and define a target architecture.
Application User Authorization & Management
Deployed Grid Grouper as part of the ACTSI Biomedical Informatics Program architecture initiative to evaluate its feasibility as core authorization infrastructure. UTS is also evaluating Grouper and we plan to bring these evaluations together in 2011.
Worked with UTS and R&HS to implement Shibboleth for user authentication and sigle sign-on in a manner that can be extended to federated authentication to serve as research collaboration infrastructure for the Atlanta Clinical & Translational Science Institute and other collaborations.
Collaborate with CCI on projects using new SOA and EAI Infrastructure at Emory
Completed the initial ACTSI Biomedical Informatics Program architecture document with the Center for Comprehensive Informatics, R&HS, and other BIP participants. Deploying the ACTSI Biomedical Informatics Proof-of-Concept Grid.
Collaborate with R&HS on Demonstrating and Implementing Applications with Semantic Web Technologies
No opportunity has presented itself to work specifically with R&HS on Semantic Web Technologies. However, Emory IT Architecture has taken the lead in the PESC EdUnify project for creating a registry of web services across higher education based on the BioCatalogue web service registry. This application support the registration, discovery, annotation, and monitoring of web services and may serve as the basis for other registries such as Emory's own registry, ACTSI BIP, or other collaborations.
Support the completed initiatives 1, 3, 4, 5 with Training, Measure Continued Progress, and Report on Status
