Scientific Computing periodically features special informatics focus articles that attempt to help you with such complex tasks as selecting a laboratory information management system or interfacing systems together. Unfortunately, there is only a limited amount of information that one can cram into one of these articles. Where we are limited to just a few pages for each of our attempts, Joe Liscouski has written a whole book on the subject
OpenLAB Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) lab productivity software includes desktop, mobile and cloud capabilities and is designed to leverage the power of tablets. It provides with scientists access to laboratory data — anytime, anywhere — through the convenience of their mobile devices.
All the computing power in the world isn’t useful if the software designed to access it is poorly designed. And we’re all much more discerning about user interfaces and usability: we expect our laboratory software to behave as intuitively as our smartphones. After all, laboratory employees are unlikely to be preoccupied with lines of codes and processors — they’re focused more on how easy the software is to use.
Benchling is a cloud-based platform that provides a suite of tools for life science - centered around a digital laboratory notebook - that accelerates R&D by tracking experiment details, facilitating collaboration, and streamlining data analysis.
SampleManager LIMS is a comprehensive laboratory information management system.

E-WorkBook 10is ELN software for multidisciplinary research and development that is designed to simplify day-to-day tasks, such as authoring content, analyzing datasets or visualizing complex results. Via the enhanced Web interface, the product is accessible through Internet browsers with a Web connection.
Despite the fact that industries won’t change working processes unless there is a mandatory need to do so, major milestones are expected in 2015 in the battle to adopt data and standardization in our scientific community. The need for deployment of these integration standards to enable efficient sharing of knowledge across our internal and external partners is re-enforced by regulatory bodies.
This year's theme will focus on how to manage the change process in R&D and QA/QC laboratories of scientific organizations in pharmaceutical, biotechnology, consumer goods and chemical industries. The interactive congress will give actionable insights on how to adopt a new mindset in our daily work.
In our November issue, Don Johnston looks at how “HPC Matters to our Quality of Life and Prosperity” and at how, through the HPC Impact Showcase, SC14 aims to underscore just how far-reaching high performance computing’s influence has become. Our cover story takes a look at several examples of how supercomputing capabilities are now being applied to problems that help businesses be more competitive and improve the quality of daily life.

Déjà Vu All Over Again: Knowledge management is not an IT problem, but a challenge to the culture of an organizationNovember 7, 2014 8:48 am | by Michael H. Elliott | Articles | Comments
In the late 1990s and the early 2000s, “Knowledge Management” (KM) was all the rage. Companies invested millions on enterprise content management (ECM) systems and teams of KM practitioners. It was believed that the codification of all knowledge assets across the enterprise would lead to new insights and higher levels of innovation.
The 2015 Bio-IT World Conference & Expo plans to unite 3,000+ life sciences, pharmaceutical, clinical, healthcare, and IT professionals from 32+ countries. The Expo provides the perfect venue to share information and discuss enabling technologies that are driving biomedical research and the drug development process.
The command center: any place which provides centralized command, a source of leadership and guidance to the rest of the organization. That’s what I see the concept of ELN developing into in research and development (R&D) across all sectors. Furthermore, it won’t be just a notebook, but a ’workplace.’
ArxLab Notebook is a Web-based electronic notebook application. Its SaaS platform is intended for use in experimental sciences; it is preconfigured for chemistry and biology workflows while supporting free-form research notes and data. The software provides full audit trails, electronic signatures, witnessing workflows and built-in sharing functionality.

The lack of a holistic data management environment to support virtualization has left project managers in a haze about how best to address the needs of the business. The sky is beginning to clear somewhat with recent introductions from companies such as Accelrys, Core Informatics and PerkinElmer. Those products, along with CDD, will be discussed to highlight capabilities and vendor approaches.
The only event dedicated to the next generation of lab informatics applications and building a searchable, shareable database to improve decision making and efficiency. After thesuccess of last year’s inaugural event ELNs, Data Analytics and Knowledge Management event in the US, Pharma IQ has announced the second EDKM conference to be held on 17th & 18th June 2014 in Boston US.
The market for electronic laboratory notebook software (ELN) continued its upward growth trend in 2013, though at a slower rate than in previous years. While software sales still experienced a healthy increase north of five percent, it was not the robust 20 to 30 percent experienced in years past. Product sales are estimated at $130 million, while an additional $100 million was expended on services, support and maintenance.
Accelrys Capture is designed to allow scientists to work more intuitively, efficiently and productively with laboratory informatics software like Accelrys Electronic Lab Notebook (ELN).

Welcome to Informatics Snapshot — a feature that highlights the standout properties of the current crop of laboratory informatics systems. While not intended to be a full formal review of the featured product or to indicate whether the product is considered “good” or “bad,” its purpose is to present some of the “diamonds and rust,” as the Joan Baez song goes. In this article, we’ll take a brief look at the LabX system
