Integrating Plexus Suite at GlaxoSmithKline
The Instant JChem (IJC) application is a thick client that is 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. Slow connection and data retrieval from sites outside the UK are only exacerbated by access over a Citrix environment making it difficult to use. In an effort to ease this pain we’ve worked closely with ChemAxon scientists to develop their Plexus Connect tool, part of the Plexus Suite, as a potential web interface for this client and we currently have a project to deliver the first instance of IJC Web in GSK. This presentation will cover the progression of IJC at GSK from a thick client to web tool as well as the other instances of Plexus Suite at GSK.
