IDBS, the provider of data management, analytics and modelling solutions, has announced a partnership with informatics firm Vivenics, which offers solutions for life sciences research and development (R&D) organisations.
Together the companies have introduced a software-as-a-service (SaaS) approach for the Pivot Park science park in Oss, Netherlands. Users benefit from local informatics knowledge and onsite support as well as increased flexibility via the managed services model.
Neil Kipling, CEO and founder of IDBS, said: 'Organisations on science parks across the world have data as their key asset. They need secure and reliable informatics that support their businesses and help to manage and protect this IP.
'For new organisations especially, getting informatics "right from the start" is a must to ensure high context and quality data assets. This innovative partnership will help nurture such companies in today’s challenging and competitive environment.'
Pharma R&D organisations in the Pivot Park, many of which are business incubators, will be provided with a complete data management solution. Acting as a channel partner, Vivenics offers a combination of its own software alongside IDBS’ E-WorkBook, ActivityBase, and SARview through a portal.
Users can track, capture, manage, store and retrieve data on a private cloud. A monthly subscription model ensures flexibility as organisations in the Pivot Park can add or remove software licenses as demand requires.
