The project is valued at over 3 million USD
GizmoxTS is to modernize the Computerized Personal Medical Record (CPR) at the medical corps of the IDF (Israel Defense Army), in a project valued at more than 3 million USD.

The Israeli ministry of defense has selected GalilCS, a GizmoxTS sister company from Kibbutz Shamir to perform the project.

The project commenced a month ago, with a first phase that will last 18 months, during which the system will be modernized and a new architecture will be built for the system, going from a client/server configuration to Microsoft based web technology, with no functional changes.  After going live with the new version, during 2018, the project will continue for two more years, during which new features will be added and the system will be maintained by GizmoxTS and GalilCS.

The IDF medical corps developed the computerized system more than a decade ago, in 2003, centralizing and making managing soldier medical information management more efficient.  The system replaced the personal cardboard file with a computerized record, available to the different entities caring for the soldiers – unit doctor, clinic medical staff, specialists, nurses and others.

Creating a complete medical picture

The CPR was developed with the goal of making it possible for the different medical entities caring for the soldier to all work on a shared platform, with the medical information accumulated in any medical encounter being available to all other care givers creating a complete medical picture.  The system has thousands of users in the IDF and outside of it – doctors, nurses, military paramedics, and it interfaces with civilian systems.  But as years passed problems grew in the system, and its technology and architecture has become outdated. 

GizmoxTS has the technology (based on several software patents), allowing organizations to replace older client server enterprise scale applications to web, cloud and mobile environments.  The technology, developed and owned by GizmoxTS, enables a fast migration to new platforms, based on smart algorithms which fully ‘understand’ all the original system’s components, and maps and automatically replaces them with components and software patterns compatible with the new environment.

The technology ensures the highest code quality and a system architecture based on the target platform’s best practices for web, cloud and mobile applications – while upgrading security mechanisms for protection against cyber-attacks and also significantly improving command and control capabilities.

Pesah Galon, the CEO of both GizmoxTS and GalilCS said in an interview that “the importance of the project is in retaining knowledge and business rules accumulated over many years, while adapting the system to advanced technologies and to continued development in a standard development environment, according to industry accepted best practices.  The GizmoxTS methodology preserves the accumulated knowledge and rules, while bringing the system up to speed in the advanced networked world.”

Galon added that “the project’s success will provide the opportunity to perform many additional projects for the IDF and the Ministry of Defense, and will leverage both company’s growth, as well as adding to the high-tech related employment options of the diverse communities in northern Israel, where the GalilCS delivery center is located.”

Not possible to add features and improvements

Last November Israel’s State Comptroller Joseph Shapira said in a report that there were complaints about the use of the CPR system, specifically that it was slow, wrought with faulty functionality and that it is not possible to add features and improvements.  The State Comptroller added that the Medical Corps command should advance the computer systems relevant to medical examination in the IDF’s recruitment centers.

A decision was taken in 2014 to create a new Computerized Medical Record system, at a cost of over 10 million USD.  This was supposed to be performed by the Enterprise Services division of HP Israel who were going to implement the ISH-MED system, written by Siemens, which was developed in conjunction with SAP.  Ultimately, the project was canceled and a decision was taken to modernize the existing system.

The US patent protected technology enables organizations to upgrade outdated enterprise applications to modern web, cloud and mobile based systems.


Shamir, one of the wealthiest Kibbutz in Israel, entered into partnership with Galon in 2014, following a large exit in which it sold half of its holding in its contact lens venture to a French corporation for 130 million UDS and was on a search for new investment opportunities.  One of these was purchasing 60% of the software house founded by Galon for 30 million USD.

Galon is a software veteran and formerly joint owner of Outlook Systems which was sold to BluePhoenix Systems.  He went on to found GalilCS which specializes in upgrading old Microsoft technologies based systems to modern platforms.

Iris Nachshoni, AIG Israel’s CIO said this was another phase in the digital transformation of AIG.

Digital shift to new platforms video 

 

Tel Aviv, Israel - The USPTO has granted a patent for the GizmoxTS technology which enables the migration of legacy n-tier

desktop applications to modern platforms, including up-to-the-minute web frameworks, cloud applications and added

mobile form factors.  According to Gartner, application modernization is a multi-billion-dollar industry.

 

Prior to the introduction of its technology, many IT organizations had to resort to manually re-developing their legacy core business

applications, some of which have been in production for decades.  This process is in many cases lengthy, costly and resource hungry. 

What’s worse – it often fails in terms of budget, timeline and in many cases even basic technical goals.

Digital re-architecting and re-writing technology from GizmoxTS allows a quick shift to the new platforms.  Its guiding principle, for which the patent was granted, is based on algorithmically achieving ‘full code understanding’ of all the system’s components. 

In turn, this understanding results in automatically mapping all legacy system components with components compatible with the target platform.  The mapping process is guided by a system architect in a powerful IDE.

According to GizmoxTS, mapping and replacing components ensures code quality and best practices based architecture

which are the standard in web, cloud and mobile applications.  As an added benefit, the technology is very ‘freeze friendly’ so several code drops are possible during a migration project. 

It also allows the upgrade of security mechanisms as part of the migration.

"The technology has been adopted by several USA based fortune 500 companies and is on track to become the de facto standard in the legacy modernization industry" Said Pesach Galon, CEO of GizmoxTS.

PRESS RELEASE JANUARY 27, 2015

Over 65% of manual rewrites fail. Transposition (TS), a technology 3 years in the making, is now patent pending

RAMAT GAN, Israel, January 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — Targeting the legacy application modernization space with unique technology, the TS patent, proven to be at least X10 more efficient than manual rewrites, covers a large market need. Millions of lines of code, for F500 organizations, have already been digitally rewritten using Transposition technology.

Organizations wishing to port client-server or older web applications to new Mobile, Web and Cloud architectures face resource-consuming manual rewrites. Previous attempts to automate such processes have not delivered on expectations. The algorithmic challenges involve reverse engineering, repurposing legacy elements such as business logic, recreating the app in the target environment with native code and components and finally, refactoring desktop’s to Mobile & touch UX.

 

Gizmox TS has been developing the technology for the last 3 years. It offers the first digital app rewriter, based on a unique semantics (AST) approach.

TS performs algorithmically the manual rewrite process. Users leverage existing Transposition rules or write custom ones according to smart “suggestion” by the machine. A virtual-compiler mechanism continually tests the rules in the new environments, visualizing errors and guiding the user with fixes-rules. TS then recreates the application in the target environment.

“The traditional migration solutions do not answer today’s need for application refactoring to new platforms,” Said Transposition author Guy Peled. “The choices are either a manual rewrite or virtualization. The first relies on scarce skilled resources, and is risky – over 65% of rewrites fail. The second is not native and entails high cost and inferior user experience. I wrote Transposition to offer solutions to both.”

“Migrating legacy applications to the latest environments can be costly for businesses,” said Tom Lindeman, Director of Partner and Channel Marketing at Microsoft Corp. “Using Gizmox’s TS technology with Visual Studio helps developers be more efficient during migration, saving companies time and money.”
