The Molecular Medicine Informatics Model (MMIM) Project in Melbourne, Australia uses IBM Information Server as the hub for a medical research platform linking varying data models in geographically diverse locations into one virtual research repository. Security and privacy are rigorously maintained. There is a mechanism to link records of individual people from different databases and then provide data to authorised users in de-identified form. MMIM has also taken up the Websphere Business Glossary to categorise and present the data models and their terms to prospective and experienced researchers. This presentation will describe the philosophy behind the MMIM project and the technical toolset implemented to bring the ideas to actuality.EXP. LEVEL: IntermediateOBJECTIVES:Provide the background to the MMIM Project, an interesting and useful application of Information on Demand using IBM Information Server.Demonstrate the use of IBM Information Server to tie data together in one virtual repository. Also show the use of IIS for the Central Metadata Repository, the "single source of truth" for the project’s metadata.Demonstrate the use of IBM Rational Data Architect to keep the current metadata model of the Local Data and the Federated Data up to date.Demonstrate the use of DataStage ETL to keep the Local Research Repository up to date with latest study data.Demonstrate the administration and use of DB2 v9 as underpinning structure for the "Federated Data Integrator."
