Solution Overview

More than ever, organizations are facing increasing pressures such as growing competition, increased
government regulation, product segmentation, corporate consolidation, and of course, time to market.
Even with these challenges organizations must still deliver innovative products to remain competitive; and
deliver them on time.

Organizations need to manage the challenges and the amount of time it takes to get their products
through the discovery, development, and manufacturing product lifecycle stages. This directly affects the
company's bottom line. Many of these challenges lie in a company's ability to extract knowledge from raw
data and to make it readily available where and when it is needed.

Today many top companies employ the use of informatics software such as Electronic Lab Notebooks, Lab
Information Management Systems, etc. However, most informatics software is used to gather the data.
Most companies understand what’s important to save; their problems seldom arise from missing some
data. The problem is usually that it’s stored in a manner that makes it difficult or impossible to do this
without manual intervention. The forethought of how to successfully do something useful with the data is
sometimes overlooked. Data is stored in these disparate “information stovepipes” and the information we
need is not easily retrieved.

A typical approach to solving this Laboratory Informatics problem is to create a new data repository where
copies of the data are moved and linked together to meet specific business problems. The issue with this
approach is that now data is duplicated, out of sync, and new business inquiries often require IT
resources to solve.
