SQL Server 2008 

Dear Customers,

If you are still running SQL Server 2008 and 2008 R2 after July 09, 2019, you will no longer receive security updates and technical support. We recommend upgrading to SQL Server 2016 or SQL Server 2017 to achieve breakthrough performance, maintain security and compliance, and optimize your data platform infrastructure.

Please feel free to contact aa-ProductManagement@shamsgroup.com  if you have questions.


Windows Server 2008

Dear Customers,

TSG is aware that Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2 support is ending on January 14, 2020. What does end of support mean for you? After January 14, 2020 Microsoft will no longer issue security updates for any version of Windows Server 2008 and 2008 R2. TSG has received several requests from our customers regarding upgrades and migrations to their new server. We are currently prioritizing the projects based on resource availability; once TSG has a confirmation of hardware availability at your facility we will place you on the priority list and provide a project timeline.

Thank you


Dear Galactica Users,

TSG is pleased to announce the beta release of Galactica ScanView. Galactica ScanView will replace previous releases of Galactica Point-of-Service and Galactica Viewer II. ScanView will be available to all existing Galactica customers effective July 01, 2015. This is an opportunity for our customers to increase user productivity, enhance departmental workflow experience, leverage the comprehensive user-audit feature - to comply with HIPAA, and to minimize client support.

What’s new in Galactica ScanView 3.1

  • No more separate client based applications for Scan/Link (POS) and Viewing (GVII).
  • Single application does both scan/link and view functions.
  • Single setup that prompts administrator to select installation for Scan/Link, Viewing or both.
  • Revamped application platform from Visual Basic to .Net to improve data/image scanning, linking and retrieval.
  • Newer version works with or without HIS integration, and hospital may utilize as a downtime tool to scan/link and view documents.
  • No more subject type tab restrictions. User may view/access multiple subject types as assigned by IT administrator in the Galactica Admin Tool.
  • Meditech HIS integration is now server side, instead of client side, and supports all client platforms including Citrix, VDI and RDP.
  • Additional parameters for user-session audit log has been added to record all events (delete, delete link, edit, memo, etc.), and is available to department administrators for an audit via Galactica Reports.

Windows Single sign-on ability now available! Please contact us at aa-productmanagement@shamsgroup.com to find out how to upgrade to this new Galactica product.
