Explore the Digital Maturity Educational Library

The library highlights specific resources for each step of digital maturity. Select your step of interest below and unlock the full potential of digital transformation.

Users in this stage keep data in paper or Excel and different physical locations

If you’re starting your digital maturity journey and considering transitioning from paper or Excel to a digital software solution, it’s crucial to understand best practices and regulatory considerations. In this section of the library, we will provide you various resources to get you started.

Here you will learn about:

  • Benefits of moving from paper/excel to a digital solution
  • Considerations before adopting a digital solution
  • User experiences moving from paper to digital
  • Basic definitions of digital terms

Users in this stage store data in digital silos and are applying multiple digital tools to existing data

If you are using an electronic notebook (ELN), historian and/or a LIMS today, your data is likely siloed and located on premise rather than the cloud. Your data is probably not structured or put into any context for analysis. Understanding how to move to the operational stage is key to moving forward in your digital journey.

Here you will learn about:

  • Data foundations
  • Developing a data flow process map
  • Structured versus unstructured data and formats
  • Compliance standards including 21. CFR. Pt 11

Users in this stage are off paper and leveraging digital systems in day-to-day workflows

If you are starting to use digital solutions on new data, the data is potentially structured at the time of capture. You are using the cloud for bi-directional push and pull of data. Digital solutions are applied primarily to new data.

Here you will learn about:

  • Data integrity
  • The meaning of contextualized data
  • The meaning of FAIR data
  • The components of a good AI strategy

Users in this stage use AI, LLM, statistical and mechanistic models for predictive capabilities and actionable insights

You have a digital ecosystem established for your organization in the cloud. Your data is structured with context, and ready for advanced analysis. You have ALCOA++ and FAIR compliance standards embedded in digital tools. You are able to share data with collaborators and gain value from your digital solutions.

Here you will learn about:

  • Data security
  • Differences between on Premise and the Cloud
  • Data analysis and reporting
  • How to use data insights tools

Users in this stage are fully digital and prepared to integrate the latest digital advances when they become available

You are at the most advanced level. Your organization has achieved industry 4.0 lab of the future status. Data is fully digital, optimized, real-time and autonomous and adaptive globally. You currently leverage artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML) and large language models (LLM) to manage and accelerate your business. You are prepared to integrate the latest digital advances to your organization.

Here you will learn about:

  • Latest digital advances
  • New technologies
  • Thought leadership topics
