The Rise of Laboratory Data Lakes

With digitization efforts long past their infancy, most companies are grappling with the proliferation of data generated throughout their organization—how to store, manage and leverage it effectively.

The rise of laboratory informatics systems such as electronic lab notebooks (ELNs), laboratory information management systems (LIMS) and laboratory execution systems (LES) have furthered the proliferation of digital information generated by the lab.

However, these disparate systems have also created multiple data silos, with data only accessible through proprietary vendor software and incompatible data formats.

So while digitization has been achieved, true digitalization (the effective use of digital data for scientific and business purposes) often remains an elusive goal.

Read this white paper to learn how data lakes have risen to prominence in response to these challenges, and how to best deploy and leverage this new technology.
