Accelrys Enterprise Platform is designed to support industry efforts toward closing the innovation productivity gap. The platform offers a scientifically aware, service-oriented architecture (SOA) that enables the integration and deployment of broad scientific solutions spanning data management and informatics, enterprise lab management, modeling and simulation, and workflow automation. It can manage structured and unstructured information encountered early in the innovation cycle, as well as highly structured, automated batch records required by lock-down production. The platform integrates with existing IT infrastructures, including downstream enterprise resource planning (ERP) and product lifecycle management (PLM) systems. Its ability to integrate with existing infrastructure, as well as handle both structured and unstructured scientific data, allows science-driven businesses to gain efficiencies from their legacy systems, reduce complexity and improve productivity from innovation through commercialization.
