Efficient Research & Development operations require the coordination of disparate business units, resources and timelines. Today multiple systems, multiple partners and multiple locations generate data which is then stored in email, SharePoint, custom tools and document repositories. It’s a wonder anyone can find and reuse anything.

Manage Your External R&D Data Sharing Securely With E‑WorkBook Connect

E-WorkBook Connect provides a single, scientific technology capable of providing secure and isolatable areas to do collaborative scientific work where ideas, data and IP can be captured for permanent record in E-WorkBook at the click of a button.

E-WorkBook Connect is a secure, cloud-based technology that enables companies, who collaborate with external parties, to create secure spaces to share ideas, data, analysis methods and IP.

All data captured can be published to an on-premise or hosted E-WorkBook environment at the click of a button and a built-in PDF engine allows completed experiments to be downloaded in PDF format for long-term storage in other systems. All changes to experiments and items within an experiment are audited to provide an IP trail of who did what and when.

Access to features within E-WorkBook Connect can be easily managed. Ideas, data and IP can be captured for permanent record in E-WorkBook at the click of a button. E-WorkBook Connect supports E-WorkBook Chemistry items and the IDBS web spreadsheet (Advance) used widely across Biology, providing a single tool for collaborative research.


Technical Description

E-WorkBook Connect is a fully hosted part of The IDBS E-WorkBook Cloud, allowing you to create secure spaces to share ideas, data, analysis methods and IP. With E-WorkBook Connect, users can create a new secure workspace and invite users from both inside and outside their own organization in just a few minutes through a simple invitation process.

Only users who have access to each individual workspace can see the data associated to it; users without access are not even aware the workspace exists. Experiments and content from within E-WorkBook can be published to a secure workspace, and data generated by the collaboration can be pulled back into E-WorkBook at the click of a button. This enables you to easily turn collaborative work and insight into IP and a long-term record without requiring you provide access into your critical corporate systems.

Not all collaborators, CROs and partners are the same. E-WorkBook Connect comes with support for the IDBS web spreadsheet (Advance) as well as ActivityBase XE templates, enabling you to control the data entry process, calculations and quality. All edits to documents are version controlled with previews, so you can see changes made by partners and restore earlier versions in just a few clicks. Built-in social features allow you to comment on work to individuals and teams to enable effective discourse.
