sciCloud.net® Next Generation Informatics
Traditional LIMS and other Laboratory Informatics applications are monolithic, limited purpose applications that are designed and developed for the precise needs of a certain type of lab function or industry function. When needs change, the software vendor comes out with new versions of the software that hopefully will address your lab’s needs. Many of these legacy, traditional systems have evolved to allow for a limited degree of configurability but invariably these systems will come up short and eventually must be replaced by another system that is hopefully a better fit.
Next Generation Informatics Solutions
The Next Generation informatics solutions are multi-layered platforms that provide a core application infrastructure that covers the cloud hosting functions, the Identity and access management functions across all of the applications within the lab specific ecosystem. The Next Generation of Informatics is an application programming interface that allows for integration and extension of the suite of applications to handle the precise & evolving needs of your lab and empowers your lab to build their own extensions or purchase extensions from an ecosystem of managed service providers. In summary, NGi is a platform-based approach that is built on a virtually endless marketplace of apps and extensions and provides the lab the ability to extend the solution so that every need is met precisely both today and tomorrow. This allows for continuous product innovation and expansion without dependence on one single vendor to provide all of your lab’s needs.
