TOOLS & CLOUD INFRASTRUCTURE Community Core

 

VALUE AND VISION

Computational technologies and tools are vital to clinical and translational research; however Hubs currently develop, deploy, and manage these independently. As a result, these processes are tedious, costly, heterogeneous, and less secure. This core is establishing a common tool and cloud computing architecture to provide CTSA hubs with an affordable, easy to use, and scalable deployment paradigm. Hubs can promote and deploy their own tools as well as adopt others’ products, thereby transcending long-standing “boundaries” and solving common and recurring information needs.

COMMUNITY CORE OBJECTIVES

  • Create common cloud computing architecture that can enable the rapid deployment and sharing of reusable software components by CTSA hubs;

  • Demonstrate the use of shared tools and platforms for the collaborative analysis of clinical data in a manner that transcends individual CTSA hub “boundaries”

  • Disseminate a common set of tools that can be employed for the both local and collaborative query of common data warehousing platforms and underlying data models

  • Pilot the “cloudification” of software artifacts that can be shared across CTSA hubs to address common and recurring information needs.
