Three major hurdles challenge the access of relevant scientific information within a laboratory-focused organization:
- Information is captured in non-interoperable data silos (LIMS, CDS, File Servers, Sharepoint, etc.).
- Much of the truly useful information is based on science objects (chemical structures, chromatograms, biological sequences).
- Captured information is typically unstructured in the form of written reports.
Scientific Search provides an opportunity to overcome these barriers by locating information across an organization so that scientists, analysts, and engineers can better leverage the information contained within their organization's data silos to make better decisions and avoid duplicating previous work. This webinar will provide an overview of how scientific search technology works and demonstrate its benefits.
Attendees will learn more about:
- The three challenges preventing science-based organizations from accessing their organization's data and information.
- The difference between structured and unstructured information.
- Scientific Search as a technology that can search across isolated information silos, perform searches based on science objects, and search within both structured and unstructured information.
Dr. Rolf Grigat holds a doctorate in industrial chemistry from the University of Cologne, Germany. He worked for CreonLabControl as a scientific software architect designing specialized spectroscopy modules and later as a scientific lead in large projects for major pharmaceutical and chemicals manufacturers, creating workflow solutions for experts. Rolf has worked for Waters as a Senior Product Manager for more than 10 years and currently focuses on search tools for data in scientific laboratories, the visualization of scientific data and their conversion to standard formats.
