The only event dedicated to the next generation of lab informatics applications and building a searchable, shareable database to improve decision making and efficiency
After the success of last year’s inaugural event EDKM (ELNs, Data Analytics and Knowledge Management) event in the US, Pharma IQ is delighted to announce the second EDKM conference to be held on 17th & 18th June 2014 in Boston US.
EDKM is the only meeting in the US that provides answers and real user case studyexperiences in laboratory informatics systems. Although the pharma industry have been implementing these systems for over 15 years, other industries such as food and beverage, fast consumer goods and cosmetic industries have also started to implement these systems into their laboratories with the hope of not only becoming a ‘paperless lab’ but to manage their data in the most effectiveand efficient way possible.
Although a great deal has been achieved, lab personnel are still faced with numerous challenges. With increased regulatory pressures and data management issues, all laboratories aim to reach a common goal of creating an electronic lab environment that allows organisations to capture organisational knowledge and leverage it as intelligence.
The world of lab data and informatics systems is evolving with more sectors buying into the benefits and high return on investment through effective data and knowledge management. With on-going regulatory guidance, integration of data and tools, data and knowledge management and virtualisation are all challenges that the lab personnel arefaced with.
