Modern testing laboratories need to perform multi-analyte testing and manage the entire life cycle of a test sample, right from sample registration to report generation and even to permanent disposal of samples. Additionally, such laboratories are highly regulated and generate massive amounts of testing data on a daily basis. Managing large data, automating laboratory workflows, and following regulatory guidelines such as ISO 17025, GLP, NELAC, CLIA, HIPAA, 21 CFR Part 11, are the major challenges of testing laboratories.
A Laboratory Information Management System (LIMS) has the ability to manage and track testing laboratory processes and workflows for enhanced efficiency, automate reporting of test results, reduce sample turnaround time, and streamline laboratory operations. A LIMS can be integrated with analyzers through an Application Programming Interface (API) to facilitate data exchange, both uni-directional and bi-directional, eliminating chances of errors in the lab.
CloudLIMS hosted a live complimentary webinar on "Manage Testing and Laboratory Workflows with LIMS". The webinar was presented by Mr. Rakhil Akkali, Product Analyst at CloudLIMS.com. The webinar provided insights on how a LIMS plays a pivotal role in automatic sample accessioning, sample tracking using barcodes, managing multi-analyte tests and test Chain of Custody (CoC), automated report generation, besides helping testing laboratories follow regulatory guidelines seamlessly. The webinar also highlighted how a cloud-based LIMS is a technologically-advanced alternative to a traditional on-premise LIMS and can help testing laboratories prevent data loss, enhance efficiency, reduce total cost of ownership, and maximize investment returns.

The speed with which digitization will transform the global economy is likely to surprise many players. So it is critical that several companies begin now to shift their focus beyond simply selling and maintaining their products and services within the current IT system. Instead, they must rethink everything from their operations to their sales and marketing processes to their cultures if they are to stay relevant in the digital age.
Many large technology vendors understand the need for change. For example, IBM-whose advertising slogan, “Smarter Planet,” suggests its commitment to digitization-has been actively buying companies to support a digitized future. In 2010, it bought data warehouse maker Netezza for $1.7 billion, business integration software maker Sterling Commerce for $1.4 billion, and Unica, a maker of marketing technology, for $500 million. The names of other large vendors’ initiatives suggest their similar visions for the future: Smart+Connected Communities (Cisco Systems); Central Nervous System for the Earth (HP Labs); Intelligent Networks (Deutsche Telekom).
Fully 50 percent of all IT spending in 2017 is expected to be devoted to smart computing solutions, platforms, and processes. There is no doubt that the promised value of digitization can only be captured by companies in these fields that understand the fundamental changes ahead. These changes include the following:
Cloud computing and security are universally seen as leading industry areas.
