Core Informatics Introduces Core Collaboration for Science

Branford, CT February 12, 2015Core Informatics, a leader in scientific data management software for accelerating scientific research, collaboration and discovery, today announced the release of Core Collaboration‰™, an agile solution developed to power successful partnerships around the world.

Core Collaborationis a private, secure cooperative platform which exponentially speeds innovation and information sharing, providing immediate, securely sequestered access to partners and talent around the world. There are five common partnership models, all of which need unique collaborative ecosystems. A successful platform must be easily configured to fit the requirements of any organization.

Organizations are under increased pressure to create more with less, increase profits and do it all in less time. Core Collaboration is a first of its kind data and knowledge sharing platform, allowing sponsors and partners around the globe to interact in real-time in a secure, configurable environment that supports any partnership model – speeding innovation while safe-guarding vital research data. Multiple secureCollaboration Spacescan be created or decommissionedwithin hoursusing a single compute infrastructure, and rapidly pre-populated with the appropriate products and applications using established business rules. Collaboration Spaces are accessible from any device at any time, and can be configured to support any scientific discipline. Collaboration Dashboards provide immediate management updates via synchronous data exchange, giving insight across all partner activities.
