GEMS Underlying Architecture
GEMS relies on a software system that provides field-tested functionality, while still tailoring the system to each project’s unique requirements. Our ability to deploy GEMS with speed, efficiency, and reliability relies on a four-tiered approach: Secured Server Infrastructure, Robust Software Platform, Rich Features & Functionality and Extensible Reports & Data Analysis.
The basic underlying benefit of this architecture is that Mosaic can tailor GEMS to each project’s custom needs effectively and efficiently. In most cases, regardless of the complexity of research goals, evaluation plan, initiative design and program services, GEMS can be configured and deployed in just a matter of weeks.
