The Problem

  • The volume and variety of data collected in life science research projects has increased exponentially which means a project's data and knowledge management infrastructure is more complex than ever before.
  • Often the tendency is to try to create solutions from scratch, but this leads to a lot of redundant effort.
  • The real challenge is being able to deliver the right platform and long term database solutions that are suited for collaborations.
