The writing is on the wall: leaders in the scientific industry all understand the necessity of moving their systems to the cloud. Having had the previously unique distinction of being the cloud-native company offering fully integrated informatics solutions, we believe Core Informatics is now positioned well ahead of the pack in the inevitable cloud transition. As opposed to moving to the cloud we were born here, and our cloud-based laboratory informatics solutions are based on a single, highly flexible, collaboration platform, created to drive innovation, while working hand-in hand with our LIMS, ELN, and SDMS.

In April of 2015. Core Informatics was included in the Gartner Cool Vendors in R&D for Manufacturers, 2015 report. The report takes a look at industries where manufactures are interested in new and innovative tools which will help accelerate R&D while creating a smooth, intuitive flow between the software technologies and the scientific research they are designed to enhance. Core informatics was one of the five vendors selected whose technology platform and business model can add value to R&D activities. In other words, we‰’re pretty cool.

Core Collaboration‰™, Core Informatics‰’ new, cloud-based information sharing platform was evaluated in the Gartner report. Core Collaboration is a secure sharing platform which offers preconfigured collaboration models to fit the five most common scientific and data sharing styles.

According to Gartner, ‰Organizations engaged in R&D are increasingly looking to outside sources for driving innovation and developing or refining IP‰_Managing the data and tracking the IP in these environments can be tricky without a facilitating platform.‰

Core Collaboration is designed for today‰’s work environment. It supports synchronous data exchange between Collaboration Spaces, and with legacy applications and data sources. The platform helps to drive a new world of collaboration and increase digital business ventures worldwide.

Unique in the industry, Core‰’s infrastructure and software are written in a single code base, to ensure that every Core product and application fits together holistically. All core tools, including LIMS, ELN and SDMS, and even third party Core apps, are fully tested to work together out-of-the-box. Where labs or businesses have specific workflow requirements, their system can be quickly configured (rather than customized) to match their needs and organizational models, dramatically reducing IT overhead and future upgrade costs.

Gartner recognized the lack of forethought in long-term planning throughout the informatics industry: ‰While there are many ELN- or LIMS-centric laboratory informatics vendors on the market, very few are cloud-based with R&D informatics in mind, and less offer commercial off-the-shelf application (COTS) support capabilities for handling different kinds of externalized research in flexible fashion. Most systems require extensive configuration and custom coding to be adapted into different externalized research environments.‰

Core Collaboration makes effective scientific research, data collection and sharing to possible with a consistent set of tools. To better enable the reality of sharing, Core Collaboration is available as a multitenant cloud platform hosted in Amazon Web Services (AWS) – or if your company is uncomfortable with the cloud, on-premises hosting is available as well.

According to the Gartner report, ‰The majority of organizations tasked with driving innovation cannot easily create collaboration environments with different access, application and security rules. This results in delays, inefficiencies and extra R&D risks.‰

Core Collaboration has addressed these concerns. The platform exponentially speeds innovation and information sharing, providing immediate, securely sequestered access to partners and talent around the world. Secure Collaboration spaces can be built or dismantled in just hours, and configurations can be easily exported and imported from one Collaboration Space to another using robust APIs.

The Core Collaboration platform was designed to fit the needs of different specialists within organizations. IT teams must boost their agility, rapidly facilitate collaborations, and control costs and complexity. Researchers meanwhile need to drive around-the-clock innovation through seamless data exchanges with partners to stimulate new thinking and allow just-in-time decision making. All these challenges are addressed by Core Collaboration.
