IT System for CIMSS, IISc • By the IT Subcommittee of the CIMSS Project IT System for CIMSS, IISc • By the IT Subcommittee of the CIMSS Project – – – Jayant Haritsa (SERC) R. Krishnamurthy (SERC) Anurag Kumar (ECE, Convener) V. Kumaran (Chem. Engg. ) Y. N. Srikanth (CSA) V. Vinay (CSA) September 1, 1998 IT System for CIMSS, IISc

IT System Functions • System users – faculty, admin officers, and case workers • IT System Functions • System users – faculty, admin officers, and case workers • Document preparation, movement, storage, access and manipulation • Implementation of office workflow – e. g. , indent “flows” from faculty to chairman to purchase to audit, …etc. – authentication, annotation, and signatures at each step – tracking of workflows • The “IT System” is the platform on which these functions are implemented September 1, 1998 IT System for CIMSS, IISc

Design Considerations • Client independence – variety of hardware and operating systems on campus Design Considerations • Client independence – variety of hardware and operating systems on campus – system should not be client dependent • Difficult to maintain security and integrity of multiple servers in multiple locations – power supply, air-conditioning, cleanliness, etc. • Work should not actually flow to the clients – messy to recover from client crash – harder to track status of work • Aim for completely paperless system September 1, 1998 IT System for CIMSS, IISc

Design Decisions • Web based client server interaction – clients only need a web Design Decisions • Web based client server interaction – clients only need a web browser – plug -ins needed for digital signatures, and document upload • Central server – with redundant hardware and storage – in a well prepared site • All data and work-in-progress resides in data-base in central server – workflow implemented by manipulating references to the documents September 1, 1998 IT System for CIMSS, IISc

Product Selection (Hardware) • Central CIMSS server – SUN Ultra Sparc 450, with Solaris Product Selection (Hardware) • Central CIMSS server – SUN Ultra Sparc 450, with Solaris (UNIX) – redundant disk drives (RAID) – redundant power supply, ethernet controller, disk controller • Firewall – Cisco PIX – proprietary hardware and operating system – high performance • Clients – PCs with Windows 95/98, NT – PCs with Linux – Standard UNIX workstations September 1, 1998 IT System for CIMSS, IISc

Product Selection (Software) • Data base system – ORACLE enterprise server • Workflow definition Product Selection (Software) • Data base system – ORACLE enterprise server • Workflow definition software – ORACLE workflow • Web server – NETSCAPE • Public key server (Certification Authority) – included in the NETSCAPE server • Client web browser – Netscape or (MS) Internet Explorer September 1, 1998 IT System for CIMSS, IISc

Application Development • Server software – implementation of workflows – development of forms and Application Development • Server software – implementation of workflows – development of forms and interfaces • Client software – browser plug-ins for supporting: • digital signatures • upload of scanned documents (e. g. , quotations) September 1, 1998 IT System for CIMSS, IISc

Some Implementation Concerns • Central server location – stable power supply – prevention of Some Implementation Concerns • Central server location – stable power supply – prevention of fire, dampness, lightning strike, etc. • Data back-up – back-up copies should be stored in separate site • Security and authentication – at present only 40 -bit security available, owing to US export restrictions – this should be upgraded as and when available – key-aging, within sessions, is an interim solution September 1, 1998 IT System for CIMSS, IISc
