Introducing Biotech Laboratory Informatics as a Service (LIaaS)
Biotechnology research and development organizations are finding themselves under pressure from many directions:
- Business stakeholders want improved operational efficiency, scalability, and agility, while keeping costs under control.
- Regulators are raising the standards and scrutiny of informatics systems demanding strong demonstrable control of data integrity through the entire lifecycle of laboratory data.
- Vendors of laboratory informatics systems traditionally labelled as LIMS, ELN, LES, LIS, SDMS, CDS are blurring the definitions of their systems as they add capabilities to increase their sales: all vendors are claiming to be able to solve all problems.
All while the volume of data generated and processed in scientific laboratories continues to increase dramatically and the pressure for data to make decisions grows. Scientists and their R&D organizations want improved data management practices and increased operational efficiency: an integrated laboratory informatics infrastructure that goes beyond the vendor acronyms and delivers digitized scientific processes.
