An organization with multiple global sites or groups where R&D programs are implemented.
Multi-site collaboration describes teamwork within a single organization. In Multi-site collaboration, the parent organization assigns projects to internal facilities which may be within the same country, or around the world.
Even though these organizations may all speak the same corporate language, communication can still be an issue. This problem is addressed in the Multi-site model because the parent organization uses a collaboration platform which allows it to seamlessly check on the “real-time” status of any experiment and communicate any changes in plans or workflows instantaneously.
Multi-Site organizations can simplify communications, improve security, and reduce risk by using a private multi-tenant cloud platform for data storage, exchange, and analysis.
