WHY UX’ERS CARE ABOUT DATA

This Pistoia Alliance article was is for everyone interested in UX design practices. The article was authored by UXLS Champions, Gergely Szabo (Healx), Ian Harrow (Pistoia Alliance), Joseph Rossetto (EMBL-EBI), Julie Morrison (RockStep Solutions), Mike Wilson (PerkinElmer), Nelson Taruc (Lextech) and Paula de Matos (Pistoia Alliance)

Experts in User Experience (UX) can contribute to the dynamic interplay between machines and scientists at critical touch points, through the systematic deployment of design principles and UX methodologies. This important relationship has the potential to facilitate when and how data is harnessed productively throughout its life cycle to deliver digital transformation and higher productivity for the enterprise.

Top 5 Reasons to Start a Digital Transformation

 

The term, Digital Transformation, describes a process in which an organization transforms from pencil and paper or basic digital tools like spreadsheets and stand-alone databases to become digitalized. A digitalized organization integrates appropriate data, logistics, and operations systems to create a seamless business management system built on digital information technologies and artificial intelligence. If done correctly, an organization that undergoes a digital transformation achieves double-digit operational efficiency improvements, reduces errors, and positions itself for scale. It is important to keep in mind that the transformation endpoint is not a fixed target; new technologies are continually integrated into the ecosystem. Thus, adopted architectures and technologies must be future-proof so that changing technologies can be introduced with minimal disruptions.

Digital transformations can create extreme winners

Digitalizing Sample Collection for Dynamic In Vivo Studies

 

In vivo studies are complex, expensive, and must be conducted to exacting specifications. Oftentimes, procedures have dependencies and time constraints that require multiple technicians working hand in hand to get the work done.  Many labs manage these timelines, tasks, and data collection with paper or spreadsheets.  RockStep Solutions, working with Novartis, UCSF IND, and others, have developed a transformative database solution that digitalizes in vivo operations and data capture. RockStep’s President, Julie Morrison and Scientist.com‘s Category Director for In Vivo Services, Meaghan Loy, presented this webinar that focuses on the challenges of managing in vivo workflows.
