Great R&D isn’t just about what you know
There are some people who know a lot about a little.
There are those who know a little about a lot.
Then there are the few who know pretty much about everything there is to know across a huge range of market verticals and how they relate to scientific domains… and it’s this you need if you are in any way involved in the fast changing world of research and development (R&D).
It is, after all, estimated that more than 70% of software systems will be SaaS based or hosted – or both – within five years.
That means radical change to the way you operate is already here, or will be soon, whatever domain you work in. And while this will dramatically affect the way you manage, deploy and purchase systems, the gains for your organization and vital initiatives, such as collaboration, are undeniable.
That’s where our extensive R&D scientific and business domain knowledge comes into its own. Not only does it give us an insight into the unique challenges faced by a whole raft of market verticals, but it also reveals the common issues we all face, to deliver solutions that work in the context of your R&D organization.
All organizations collaborate internally and externally these days. It’s a dynamic and often unpredictable process. So the infrastructure that supports your R&D collaborations has to be just as dynamic, as well as easy to deliver to collaborators around the world, across multiple industries including commercial, not-for-profits and academia. Now that really calls out for in-depth domain understanding!
So, given that everyone is heading towards web-based deployment models for software, it’s going to have to be easy to use and intuitive – to the point where ‘user training’ is an obsolete term.
If you’d like to find out how we deliver that kind of transformational impact to all kinds of R&D organizations, join me for my latest webinar: ‘Collaboration & Innovation in R&D Informatics’; and discover how our multi-domain expertise can provide the right R&D collaboration solution for you.
