L7 Informatics Named to Gartner’s 2020 Cool Vendors in Life Sciences List
L7 Informatics is a premier provider of laboratory informatics solutions that revolutionize scientific process and data management, advancing precision health across life sciences, healthcare, and nutrition industries. Recently named one of five “Cool Vendors in Life Sciences that technical leaders should watch”, disruptive vendors such as L7 Informatics are poised to help accelerate life science business results.
To digitally transform your operations into the lab of the future, enterprise enablement must occur as part of the digitalization process. Many laboratories today are made up of siloed technologies both within individual laboratories and throughout the organization, resulting in disparate and redundant systems. Older systems that are not able to handle advances in technology further hampers system connectivity and laboratory automation initiatives. These siloed lab data management systems dramatically reduce the overall business velocity and efficiency, increasing the cost and speed at which drugs and products are produced.
Laboratories and their scientific instruments must be integrated into the larger enterprise architecture to support business goals such as speed to market, regulatory compliance and cost of development. Unified platforms with common modules are the easiest path towards achieving a digitally connected enterprise. The L7|ESP™ Enterprise Science Platform breaks down barriers to this effort by providing streamlined processes and better data management across all laboratory functionalities. The L7 solutions integrate with external, in-house and open-source tools to create a seamless workflow. Operational excellence stems from better use of resources and faster, higher quality results.
L7|ESP is a unique foundational platform for integrating lab operations. The L7 customized, scalable approach enables rapid scientific advancements by creating enterprise solutions that integrate functionality across the entire workflow to reduce redundancies and vastly improve operational metrics. L7|ESP software can be deployed on the cloud-hosting provider of your choice or on-premise within your own cloud. The platform is designed to seamlessly manage data intensive workflows, creating a data architecture roadmap specifically designed for your data strategy and informatics needs. Applications within L7|ESP are discrete software modules with specific functions. This modularized platform enables you to only use the tools that you need while having the ability to easily add functionality with the changing requirements of your business.
The main bottleneck that prevents most labs from adopting an integrated data management system is that laboratories already have an established array of systems and technology. The L7|ESP platform can be deployed as an overlay system on top of existing siloed systems to tie them together and minimize legacy disruption or if needed, replace existing legacy systems, providing a big-picture view of the entire laboratory workflow.
