Continuing the discussion from Help us brainstorm OpenMRS project ideas:
@teleivo, I love your proposal!
I submitted a grant (unfortunately unsuccessfully) a couple years ago to fund a project to “harden” OpenMRS, including bringing the technology stack forward and adding support for clustering.
@jdick has been working on a proposal to refactor OpenMRS to scale horizontally – i.e., support clustering and be “cloud-ready”.
I believe to be relevant in the next decade, OpenMRS will need to be cloud-capable and (ideally) support multi-tenancy as well as tackling the issues you’ve enumerated.
I wonder if we could consolidate or organize these efforts. Your notion of a dedicated task force sounds terrific. Count me in on any way I can help!
