Collectively, the results of these assessments will establish a strategic roadmap to transform the MHS infrastructure, through future development, to support the EHR application strategy.
DNC conducted an extensive requirements engineering study of the current TI-FMS system and code that resulted in a thorough documentation of the physical and logical environments within which the current applications execute. Once the existing environment was understood and documented, and the functional and technical requirements were defined, we conducted an analysis of alternatives. The analysis assessed the advantages and disadvantages of potential objective architectures and various migration strategies, and identified the most feasible and advantageous TI-FMS objective architecture and migration strategy.
