The Information Systems Unit provides, manages and develops Information Technology Resources in order to facilitate the work of IMM researchers increasing their productivity. It also enforces process compliance with international and internal norms and procedures. Starting its activities in March 2008, the Information Systems Unit is designing and implementing several projects that aim to pursue its main goals. These projects intervene in the areas of:
1) Information System Design;
2) Integration of Existing and New Information Systems;
3) Web Site (in collaboration with the Communication and Training Unit);
4) Documentation and Information Workflow;
5) Physical Support (Backups, Storage, Network Reliability, Network Performance, Security);
6) Knowledge Management.
Support to IMM researchers includes the provision of a help-desk support service. A help-desk team is scheduled in order to respond all working days of the year. This help-desk team receives all help requests from the users, and acts as their only contact. If necessary, the help-desk team works in cooperation with the Information Technology Unit of the Medicine Faculty of Lisbon. In 2008, the projects will be mainly focused on the Information Systems, Web Site and Storage Projects.
