Scientific Information Management Consultancy

IS strategies support the business of the lab

Scimcon specialises in IS strategy for labs, as its people have lab backgrounds.

Unlike most IT consultancies, we have practical knowledge derived from running lab information systems: LIMS, Chromatography data systems, document management systems, instrument systems, Electronic Lab Notebooks and raw data archival systems.

Strategies that we develop with you, help you to develop a structured approach to IS projects and focus your IS spend on achieving business objectives.

Creating a clear sense of direction

Improving your IS strategy will help you regain control of IS direction and make it possible to plan with more certainty.

We base our proposals on a thorough understanding of your laboratory process gained during the initial study phase. Projects are prioritised within the strategy to provide solutions to short, medium and long term needs.

With a solid procedure for project prioritisation, you can speed up the cycle of a project from idea to live system.

IScore, Scimcon’s template process for prioritising IS projects, is an important component of the IS strategy – one that remains in place to assist future IS project proposal evaluation.

Using the process ensures that selections are based on criteria set out in the IS strategy document. Business cases are submitted to a steering group, that determines which projects get funding on the basis of their contribution to business objectives.

A platform for success

Beyond the design of a robust IS strategy, Scimcon can show you how best to manage ongoing projects successfully.

By employing a structured approach to project definition and implementation, you can maximise the return on their IS investment in the business.
