Background:

OpenClinica is a Healthcare Data solutions provider, providing Cloud implementations for clients to help monitor, manage, and control their healthcare data.

The Challenge:

OpenClinica had a unique configuration/third-party SSO identity management platform configured with an older JIRA instance. OpenClinica wanted to both update their JIRA instance to 7+, but also maintain the unique configurations/custom integration using their third-party SSO. OpenClinica was also looking to migrate their instance from their servers to a custom Amazon EC2 instance.

The Solution:

Ascend Integrated developed (and later provided as an open source solution) a new integration tool for JIRA 7, which was required to be updated. Ascend Integrated also successfully upgraded their instance from 6 to the latest version of 7, maintaining custom third-party apps/add-ons and functionality. Ascend Integrated worked closely with the development/DevOps team to migrate the newly upgraded JIRA instance from their local servers to the AWS EC2 and provided detailed testing and analysis to ensure all applications were functioning.

Outcome:

The JIRA instance is in use today at OpenClinica, along with the customizations and configurations. Ascend Integrated continues to support OpenClinica as a JIRA SME and with EC2 DevOps support. JAR files developed/configured for the OpenClinica project, upon permission, were offered as a free Open Source solution downloaded and used by many users looking to integrate their JIRA instance with the SSO tool.
