The IDBS E-WorkBook Cloud named Cloud Product of the Year

In May 2017, The E-WorkBook Cloud was named Cloud Product of the Year at the National Technology Awards in London.

It’s a pretty big milestone for us, and it’s one we’re delighted we’ve passed so early on in The E-WorkBook Cloud’s journey (especially when you consider it was only launched in January)!

So, it may be award winning, but what is it?

Simple! The IDBS E-WorkBook Cloud is a complete end-to-end, cloud-based, research and development platform that supports all your internal, external and hybrid data management and research needs. Built using our existing web-based ELN as the backbone, The E-WorkBook Cloud platform has been designed to behave, look and feel like a single, seamless application. This provides a superior user experience and eliminates the need to maintain complex integrations between systems from different vendors, allowing users to drastically simplify the deployment process.

What does your E-WorkBook Cloud look like?

The E-WorkBook Cloud features eight intuitive modules, allowing you to add new functionality as and when you need it. The end result? Our cloud platform can grow organically with you and your business, removing the need for costly on-premise installations and large infrastructure overheads – and the modules you add create an environment tailored to fit your organization. There’s no ‘one size fits all’ with The E-WorkBook Cloud.

Because it’s cloud based, you can also access new features as and when they are available – take our Request module for instance. We only added it to The E-WorkBook Cloud last recently, but customers are already able to access the functionality. Here’s the full module family:
