Thermo Fisher Scientific: The Case for User-Friendly Informatics in the Pharmaceutical QA/QC Lab

It’s hard to believe but, today, lab software productivity is less about raw computing power and more about user-friendliness and integration. As Moore’s Law predicted, our computers can indeed process orders of magnitude more today than even a decade ago. But putting more transistors on a chip isn’t all that’s making modern lab workers more productive: new business models, system architectures and software delivery models play major roles too. Cloud computing and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) in particular have lowered the costs of accessing computing power so much so that today it’s more about the idea, not the infrastructure to operationalize it.
