Midrange Team Mission
We support JHU and JHHS enterprise-class
servers in support of both business-critical
and patient-critical applications and
services.
What is Midrange?
• Between microcomputers and the
Mainframe computer systems
Midrange Systems
• Smaller Windows systems cost $2K-$15K
• Mainframe systems cost $5-$100M.
• Midrange systems generally cost between $10K
and $1M.
• Why use midrange? High-performance, high
up-time, proven reliability, clustering/failover,
and flexibility of applications.
3 Tier Architecture
Tier 1 – Clients (Usually Windows Desktop
Applications)
Tier 2 – HTTP and/or Application Servers
Tier 3 – Database Servers (Oracle, Cache, etc)
Midrange Projects
•
Keane – Is the financial billing system for the Johns Hopkins Health System. Effective
December it also becomes the Inpatient registration system for the Johns Hopkins
Hospital. It replaces SMS Inpatient registration which runs on the mainframe.
•
Service Center & SAP Shared Services Service Center – Are the problem reporting
and change management system for [email protected]
•
Patrol & UpTime – Monitor all midrange servers for problems and
performance. Keeps historical performance data and reports.
•
SRM Chart Tracking – Medical records chart tracking system for JHH.
•
Tivoli TIMS/TAMOS & eTrust – These security products provide RACF style of
security for almost all of our Midrange systems alerting us to intrusion and
unauthorized actions.
•
Coeus – This is the grant system for The Johns Hopkins University.
More projects…
•
Sympa - The Sympa system is used for enterprise wide mailing lists at JHH/JHU. This
system enables near instantaneous communications to a vast number of email
recipients and is used extensively in Security bulletins, Class Scheduling, and Group
Support Notifications.
•
Emtek - The Emtek system (formerly known as Eclipsys SCC) is in use by many of the
ICUs for patient records, patient vitals data, and all aspects of the patient
documentation effort within an ICU.
•
CRMS (Clinical Research Management System) The CRMS system is in place for use
for all aspects of Clinical Research to include Oncology, Neurology, and others. This
system is also in use by outside entities in coordinated clinical research projects that
Johns Hopkins has initiated.
•
Pathology - This system is currently being built and tested and is the upgrade to the
system in use by the Pathology Lab for interfacing, controlling, monitoring, and
obtaining results of the various and extremely complex test equipment in the Pathology
Labs.
More projects!
•
CommVault - These servers manage all CommVault backup jobs as they write to
disk cache.
•
JHED – The Enterprise Directory application is responsible for all Hopkins user
profiles, providing a central repository for user information, providing a basis for
single-sign on, user lookups, authentication and authorization to access internal
resources at Hopkins.
•
JHEM – The Enterprise Messaging environment holds accounts for over 40,000
users at the Institution. This is a highly available application, part of a redundant
architecture designed to minimize downtime should a hardware component fail. This
environment provides a high-performance, secure, web-based, POP, and IMAP
access to e-mail, as well as a calendar application.
•
Sakai (Online Course Delivery) Sakai is in use by the ISIS group for online course
content delivery to students enrolled within the Johns Hopkins University.
Projects Galore!
•
SAP (Systems Applications and Products in Data Processing) - This enterprise wide
software package is used for the University and Hospital. It is divided into modules that include
Financial Accounting, Controlling, Production Planning, Materials Management and Sales and
Distribution.
•
Interface Engine (Impact) - Handles inter-application messaging for hospital. Between test and
production, there are almost 500 interfaces. Production processes over 2 million messages each
day.
•
Autosys - CA scheduling application from CA. Like a super cron, the Autosys app schedules and
executes commands for SAP and ISIS.
•
Pharmacy - GE Centricity application for requesting, processing, cross checking and distribution
of medicines for patients throughout the hospital.
•
VPSX - an LRS print server application allow for centralized print management. This print server
manages printers for Pharmacy, Keane, SAP, ISIS, Pathology and, soon, IDX.
Lastly!
•
EPIC - outpatient scheduling system for JHH Bayview and remote clinics
•
EPIC Data Warehouse - maintains historic EPIC data providing reporting functions to
users on trending data, etc.
•
ORMIS - Operating room management system provides resource management for
the operating rooms at JHH and Bayview.
