MUSC Infrastructure Standards: Access to Data
- Client Platform Flexibility
An application should not be installed on MUSC's network if it unnecessarily restricts the ability of authorized users to access the application from any Internet standards-compliant client platform or end-user device. Applications that require a specific client operating system or a specific web browser are discouraged, because they prevent some authorized users from accessing the information they need, or they force MUSC to follow unnecessarily restrictive and proprietary client platform strategies, or both.
- Data 'Harvesting' Requirement
MUSC defines data harvesting as using standard Internet protocols to retrieve data from within an application systems or database using MUSC's network infrastructure. An application should not be installed on MUSC's network if it unnecessarily restricts the ability to authorized users to harvest data from the application.
- Portal Requirement
An application should not be installed on MUSC's network unless its data will be made available and accessible via the MUSC portal.
