Gartner's kudos for IDBS

Data management provider IDBS is one of only five firms out of 34 to be rated as an 'ELN Enterprise Vendor' in an influential research report.

In Gartner’s report, ‘Manufacturers Must Consider Scientific Domain Expertise During ELN Selection’, IDBS was given a very high/high rating for deep domain expertise across five of the six key scientific areas: biology, translational medicine, chemistry, formulations and regulated (process) environments. It received a medium rating for engineering.

A ‘very high’ rating means the vendor has excellent scientific domain capabilities and is approaching the ‘de facto’ standard. IDBS is the only ELN Enterprise Vendor to have a very high rating in more than one category. The research is designed to be a starting source to create shortlists of vendors that best serve scientific and functional domains.

Neil Kipling, CEO and founder of IDBS, said: 'We have a 20-year history of helping customers treat their R&D data as a capital asset. As the largest independent company in our sector we have moved fast and invested early to meet the needs of a newly data-centric R&D environment.

'For us, this report confirms that we provide an unparalleled breadth of capability in E-WorkBook. Our expanding customer base now ranges across multiple industries and scientific domains, from basic research through process development into translational research. All of them are benefitting from improved business insights and measurable efficiencies.'
