Cloud

Overview

Mobile technology offers a unique opportunity to collaborate, access data and make decisions on the go, increasing throughput and reducing time consumed by review processes. The Dotmatics Platform on the cloud allows the integration of multiple, diverse systems and data sources. Organisations can now securely access all of the Dotmatics solutions, using their web-browser, on their own dedicated instance running in the cloud. This provides users with an all-encompassing view of relevant information, enabling better informed science and business decisions.

At the heart of Collaborative Research

  • Dotmatics Cloud in combination with the Dotmatics Platform revolutionises the way that collaborative research is done
  • Dotmatics’ flexible and comprehensive platform offers secure access to users per project
  • Not just simple file sharing, but true idea generating solutions
  • Internal and external R&D teams across the world can share data and generate new discussions leading to the creation of innovative ideas and IP

Protect and control your database with single tenancy

  • A separate instance of the Dotmatics Platform and its supporting infrastructure is delivered to each customer which provides significant capability to easily configure the system to mirror the requirements of each team
  • For example, R&D teams can adapt features such as additions to individual modules to various internal databases and external partner databases

Secure access from users’ preferred device

  • Simply set up new collaborative projects with multiple teams and start sharing data promptly with no extra training required for computers or mobile devices
  • Data from collaborators can be accessed in real time by all members of a project enabling around the clock global research

What have customers said about Dotmatics Science Cloud?

  • “Our operation is spread over Europe and the Far East. After much analysis we decided that a Cloud installation was the most appropriate for us. It allows us to access the system from multiple places and from remote locations. Even when our scientists are in the field we can send information to them via our tablets. It is very practical and ensures the smooth running of our communication.” Head of Science, Non-Profit Research Organisation, UK
