Vista's Guinea Pig: Lab Puts Microsoft's Vista Stack To Work On Cancer Research

It’s always good to see good press in the headlines, so I wanted to take the opportunity to highlight the efforts being made to implement technology from the Information Worker segment in this high profile customer example.

"The advanced functionality of SharePoint 2007 and of the Windows Presentation Foundation (WPF) at Vista's heart meant that two InterKnowlogy developers could create in a matter of weeks an application that would previously have taken months or years to develop, he said.

The Collaborative Molecular Environment  (CME) uses the full stack of technologies in Microsoft's Vista wave, including the Vista client operating system, SharePoint 2007, Microsoft Office 2007 and .Net 3.0. Users can model and study structures in a graphical system powered by WPF and record their observations in a familiar Microsoft interface. SharePoint enables secure storage and remote access for the shared data. Kuhn is ecstatic about the tool, which Scripps has already deployed to 10 researchers in four different West Coast labs."
