For large organizations utilizing complex laboratory informatics systems such as LIMS, ELNs, and scientific content management systems (SDMS), creating a fully integrated data environment that connects these systems to devices, instruments, and enterprise systems is an important key to scientists’ productivity, supporting innovation, and regulatory compliance. However, too often, companies lack an effective methodology to achieve the desired digital continuity across the project lifecycle successfully.
One of the foundational elements to reducing data silos and enabling system integration is business-focused enterprise architecture. To achieve an integrated laboratory and unified research program across multiple locations and labs, it is critical for large scientific organizations to conduct an architectural assessment that covers both the current state and desired future state.
In this webinar, we will discuss best practices for this type of architectural assessment, focusing on the “why” and “how” of such an assessment. Topics covered in this webinar will include:
- The benefits of conducting an architectural assessment
- The importance of alignment with the scientific process to maximize business and technology goals
- Use of a roadmap to guide the transition to the future state
- Potential architectural frameworks
