A new LIMS also provides an opportunity to take advantage of the latest technologies.
Purchasing a LIMS can be an exciting time of transition and change for a laboratory. A new LIMS ushers in an opportunity to re-evaluate the way a business operates and introduces more efficient ways of running the business. A new LIMS also provides an opportunity to take advantage of the latest technologies. However, for all the benefits and features a LIMS can bring, it can only be as valuable to the business as the infrastructure on which it is running.
Infrastructure is the unsung hero for many enterprise systems. Silently running behind the scenes, many users are not aware of the value of well-managed systems infrastructure until something goes wrong. Whether it be recovering from a disaster, or responding to user performance issues, how well the infrastructure is designed and managed on an on-going basis can make or break a business. As such, it is critical the laboratory decision maker and IT manager evaluate the right choice for their infrastructure needs early in the decision cycle. They should consider the full cost of ownership for managing and hosting the LIMS themselves versus the benefits of utilizing a managed services provider that will maintain the system for them.
For customers purchasing STARLIMS, it offers a high quality and secure cloud STARLIMS solution with infrastructure that is fully managed by STARLIMS. This allows customers to focus on running the laboratory, while leaving the ongoing management of STARLIMS infrastructure to our experts.
