Walter Reed Army Institute of Research (WRAIR)
The WRAIR aims to conduct biomedical research that is responsive to Department of Defense and US Army requirements and delivers life saving products including knowledge, technology and medical materials that sustain the combat effectiveness of the Warfighter.
The WRAIR was recently faced with the daunting task of modernizing the Walter Reed Manpower Information System (WMIS), one of their homegrown manpower/budget tracking applications.
It was an Oracle database five years past the end of its life cycle date, reduced to being a stand-alone system due to information assurance (IA) concerns, and, unfortunately, WRAIR did not have the resources to execute a full migration to a secure next generation application.
Our team of software developers assessed the application, developed a migration strategy with the feedback of the application users, and executed a full data migration to a web based, IA approved, SQL database that could be administered by their current in-house staff. This new application allows for customizable, ad-hoc access to the information from any approved user/machine. This real-time access has greatly increased visibility and reduced the man-hours needed to manage and report on the day-to-day operations of WRAIR, all at a cost drastically under what was projected to complete the migration.
tiag developed and executed a full data migration to a web based, IA approved, SQL database that is now easily administered by WRAIR in-house staff. The new system provides real-time visibility and reduces the time to manage and report on operations.
