Specifically regarding JAX Colony Management System (JCMS), as you may know:
The National Institute of Health (NIH) program that has funded JAX Colony Management System (JCMS) development for the past eight years has ended (NIH (GM072863)).
Jackson Laboratory Colony Management System (JAX-JCMS) software is no longer in development and is provided “as is".
Support for existing JAX Colony Management System (JCMS) software functionality ended August 31, 2015.
What are the lessons learned from this debacle?
It is important to rely on companies with a strong history of providing reliable and continuous colony management services.
Providing continuous colony management software solutions is a serious business that requires sustainable financial revenue to support the ongoing data management needs of researchers not a grant funded software project which will cease operations when funding is stopped and the developers discontinue the application leaving the researchers data hostage to an abandoned system.For former JAX Colony Management System (JCMS) users who do not have the time to become software developers or database administrators and would rather focus on their research, we encourage you to join those who have already made the easy switch to the SoftMouse Colony Management System.Get Started and Switch now.
