Bishops Stortford, UK. Dotmatics Limited, a leading provider of scientific information management solutions announced today that the Grünenthal Group, a leading pharmaceutical company with headquarters in Germany, selected its state-of-the-art enterprise informatics solutions after a rigorous tender process and evaluating various vendors.
Dotmatics’ Vortex is a world-class visualization and analytics platform for scientific data. It includes the ability to create and manipulate plots, calculate properties and filter as well as profile compounds. Browser is a flexible query and visualization tool for biological and chemical datasets alike. It allows the search of multiple data formats and includes a variety of reporting tools. Both tools are designed to facilitate the discovery process, thus increasing the overall output of research organizations.
“In 2010, we started a detailed evaluation of various informatics solutions that would provide us with optimal support to query, report, and analyse our complex chemical and biological data. The powerful interplay between Browser’s ability to query and retrieve information and Vortex’ data analysis, visualisation, and reporting proved to be the most flexible solution for supporting our multidisciplinary project teams” said Dr. Henning Steinhagen – Senior Vice President Global Drug Discovery, Grünenthal Group. “We expect that research collaboration as well as overall efficiency and productivity at Grünenthal will be increased by implementing Browser and Vortex” he added.
