Chemical data management in the real world - buy or develop, data sharing and helping the scientists to work more effectively
In the current climate, cost and effectiveness is vital for survival. At Evotec we are seeking to improve our ability to manage chemical data, to share that data more effectively with our clients and to allow our scientists to work more efficiently through automation of data management. The decision to buy software such as an ELN, or products such as Instant JChem help to provide the scientists with the basic tools to do their job. By enhancing these through integration, extension and enhancement by our in-house software team we aim to allow them to do their job in a more efficient and (cost-)effective way. This talk will discuss our decision process for choosing an ELN (to work with ChemAxon tools), our plans for Instant JChem and data sharing with clients.
