Mending the disjointed data landscape in R&D

Despite the talk about the modern digitalized laboratory and lights-out manufacturing, many organizations are still relying on R&D and manufacturing systems that are not connected. This disjointed data landscape means data is lost, fragmented and siloed throughout the product lifecycle.

Key struggle

A fragmented and complex software landscape is often created by multiple systems (ELN, LIMS, LES, MES, EBR etc).

Key struggle

Data is scattered in silos and has to be transferred manually between systems – resulting in a lack of data cohesion and context.

Key struggle

Inefficient software support for processes and workflows lead to the use of multiple paper routines, or at best Excel.

just complicated is the data management landscape in R&D
