Addressing life science industry challenges with unified informatics solutions

The expectation of doing more with fewer resources in the lab, and the continuing trend towards digitalization of data in the lab producing more and more data every year, demands a transformation of lab operations. Standardization helps organizations to organize and leverage this data for improved efficiency and collaboration and decision making. And the integration of core capabilities like materials and sample management as well as the execution of procedures leads to reduced errors, improved compliance and efficiency and advanced knowledge management in the lab.

As a result of these challenges, the life sciences industry has been turning towards more unified scientific informatics solutions to facilitate and optimize the management of both R&D information and QA/QC data. Many companies have patched together disparate IT systems in an attempt to meet these demands; however, at best, the result has been interminable custom-coding processes with excessive total cost of ownership and validation/compliance shortcomings. Companies are also turning to web-based and cloud-enabled solutions to lower the cost of ownership simplify their IT infrastructure overhead.

This webinar will explore how pharmaceutical organizations and others are leveraging unified informatics solutions to increase efficiency, collaboration, knowledge management, and ultimately shorten time-to-market. It will cover how the breadth of BIOVIA’s current informatics offerings help solve the multitude of challenges faced by the life science industry, providing a unified suite of capabilities and scientific experiences, while utilizing industry standards and providing an open framework that can integrate with other systems.
