Rollout of Plexus Connect at GSK, a brief history and update
The Instant JChem (IJC) application is a thick client that has been delivered via a desktop application at GSK. The client uses direct connections to the GSK database infrastructure to provide access to registration, biological data and structure searches. Complex data joins and access from sites remote to the data made the connection and query slow for many users. GSK have worked closely with ChemAxon scientists to develop their Plexus Connect tool, as a performant web interface for this client and we are in the process of delivering this new client across GSK. This presentation will reflect on the setup we are changing from, the status of the rollout of the new product, current issues and future challenges.
