Hello Fellow Team Members,

Below you will find the latest email from Susan.

Mikhail, I'm not sure what to do at this point. We have a team of 4 members (Ashwin, Kathy, Scott, and Vihang) willing to work on the project, 2 members (Jeremy and Robert) which have graduated and do not have the time in their schedules to dedicate to development, and 1 member (Jaime) who did not have the time to dedicate to the project this semester and may return to us in the future, and myself (knows the ins and outs of the project and its requirements, but cannot help on the development side of things).

I know there was talk of deployment soon, and I suspect that what Jeremy wrote up on the wiki for our GitHub repo would suffice to get us started, but I cannot confirm this as I don't have the time to dedicate to development. With that said, I don't know what to tell Susan. I understand her frustration, but it's safe to say that it's not the fault of any individual, but rather circumstances and bad timing that has led to the project remaining mostly stagnant for the majority of the semester. We don't have the (student) resources readily available to deploy this right away at the moment, and learning what to do and how to do it will take time, so I need your help in announcing what we need to do next.

Hi Nathan trust all is well. Seem that another year has gone by. Is there any way we can just load one simple program like changing medication data on each patient so that I can replace what Mr. Gofman had created a century ago
 I will give Yuri a call next week.

Hello again,

My team would like to set up a meeting with you and all other parties that will need to be involved as far as delivering the system and getting it up and running.

Please let me know your availability and we can work around your schedule, since we live in the earlier time zone.

Hi Nate,

I am an IT consultant working with FSW, and I will be helping Boris set up this system once it is ready for deployment. In order to prepare for that, could you provide some information on the infrastructure requirements for the system, i.e. OS platform, number and sizing of the servers, virtualization platforms supported, database and app server requirements, etc.

Just to give you some background, we are a Microsoft shop and are running a number of Windows servers and a few .NET applications on MS SQL Server back-end. We have very limited Unix expertise and would need a detailed guidance to deploy anything Unix/Linux based. We are also just starting to implement virtualization at FSW. We have a couple of physical servers installed, but have not fully deployed a virtualization platform yet.

Feel free to contact me by e-mail or phone (914.572.3324) if you have any questions.

Since our last update we've encountered what should be the last handful of problems with the system before we're able to make it available for you to download. You may have noticed that I said /system/ rather than /systems/, which is because in our last meeting we decided to merge the systems into one for simplicity and convenience. After diving into merging the two systems, we realized that there were problems that we did not foresee previously, but I'll spare you the description of those problems and instead let you know that we're working hard to correct them as soon as possible.

I'll keep you updated on our progress with that throughout the week, as things change. I apologize for all of these minor problems that have been delaying our delivery, but you can be sure that we'll be delivering the system to you in a state which we think you'll be satisfied with and you'll find to be worth the wait!

On a side note, could you have Boris get back to us on those questions that I sent out in my last email? We'd really appreciate if we could get those answered as soon as possible so that we can avoid any further delays on top of the minor problems we're encountering with the merge.

Until next time, take care!
