‘As the needs for laboratory operations exceed the limitations and capabilities of current vendors and infrastructures, life science CIOs must reevaluate solution providers to be more in line with digital “lab of the future” strategies.’

A review by Rob Brown, VP Product Marketing, Dotmatics

Michael Shanler, VP Analyst, Gartner Inc, gives a comprehensive overview of the complex Laboratory Informatics Landscape in the Market Guide for Laboratory Informatics.* I’m particularly pleased to see Dotmatics recognised as a Platform Vendor in this report.

The guide includes a graphical representation of The Evolution of Lab Informatics, and provides recommendations for life science CIOs advancing life science digital R&D and commercial strategy and innovation.

If you have access to this Gartner report, I recommend it as a good read with what I believe is additional pertinent advice on working with vendors and dealing with technical debt. Gartner subscribers may access report here:
