Avoid Losing Your Data in an Email Black Hole

Info Sheet

A new era of partnership

Scientific enterprises that have historically relied on in-house research & development (R&D) have begun to outsource as part of a growing paradigm shift. A new era of collaboration and partnership is spreading in the push to stay ‘lean’ in an increasingly specialized market.

According to Technavio1, the R&D outsourcing market has the potential to grow by USD 6.09 billion between 2020 and 2024. Despite this, all too often, R&D organizations are relying on email and basic document exchange tools, which leads to miscommunication, lost data and transcription errors.

Collaborative communication

Most organizations will soon need to adapt to the business environment of growing partnerships and flexible collaboration around the world. But speed and economic benefit are not the sole motivators for expanding networks – collaboration2
across disciplines has also been shown to dramatically increase innovation when compared with more siloed structures.

Reliable data at every stage

In a time of increased outsourcing and diversified industries working together for a common purpose, an electronic solution for unified data management is more important than ever.

The IDBS Cloud informatics platform has been designed to be a flexible, scalable system that supports the ability to capture, store, contextualize and share quality-controlled research data across teams and workflows to speed decisions and uncover hidden insights.

Uncluttered simplicity

To stay competitive, teams can no longer be unnecessarily pulled into the “black hole” of email to relay important information. Scientists should focus efforts on the science – while ensuring simplicity and transparency throughout for better data and better decision making.
