idōs, Inc. created the profiles of disaster medicine and health threat and hazards digital library. The system features digitized threats and hazards of historical events that have been spoken of by various sources like news worthy events, local police and fire agencies, emergency operations centers, sensors (NASA, NOAA, and USGS) and datasets from the National Geospatial Intelligence Agency (NGA). On the other hand, we have integrated media items selected from the archival collections of the U.S. National Library of Medicine as well as collaborating institutions. In addition, it contains a database of descriptive, technical and administrative metadata to be accessed, exploited and managed by idōs, Inc.
The choices made building the digital library were designed to maximize the sustainability and long-term studies of epidemiology and how certain threats, hazards may impact the environment that surrounds a person concentrically. We then include that metadata and its components directly into a digital library. We selected standards and open digital file formats that are not proprietary formats which increases the sustainability of the digital files. Correspondingly, using non-proprietary software may improve the sustainability of the software--either through in-house expertise or through the open source community. Limiting our digital library software exclusively to open source software or to software developed in-house has not been feasible.
We have created a proprietary operating systems, scanning software, a search engine, and productivity software. We did this due to the lack of essential capabilities of current technologies and to meet the cost-benefit of maintenance, upgrades and migrating from obsolete digital files to a new format as the technological landscape changes. Depending upon the source, our digital library's start in 1998, all of its software has been upgraded or replaced, to include the digitized items that required migration to other formats. Technological changes that compelled us to maintain a proprietary software operating system allowed our end users to keep the cost of product licensing, product support, incompatibility with other software, prohibited use due to evolving security policies, and product abandonment on our shoulders. Sometimes these changes happen on short notice, so we continually monitor the library's software for signs of endangerment or cancellation.
Software Integration is a process of merging two or more diverse software systems either mono-directional or bi-directional so that data/functionality flows between the systems smoothly. idōs defines software integration as the process of aggregating diverse sub-systems to combine to form one coherent multi-functional system. It involves conjoining the system and the software applications to act as a whole.
For the businesses to stay relevant and competitive in this globalized world, digital transformation is imperative. Also, most of the business systems possess disparate systems and applications. Based on the functional needs, the need for integration of these disparate systems would be required. The idōs system integration concepts come into the picture. The key to implementing system integration process requires having a precise understanding of when to look out for software integration. Here, we assist you with situations that necessitate you the need to look out for software integration solutions.
To understand the need for software integration better, consider the need for; having multiple data sources, savings of time/manpower to maintain the data; lower the chances of mistakes; timely flow of information; multiple algorithms and calculations adjusting on the fly; data to reflect on another system quickly or on a frequent basis; capabilities working within a multitude of critical sectors; having a key resource system that will prevent duplicate work and effort; and transform your system into the most advanced intelligence product.
